The first Waterloo Beer Festival takes place next weekend (1st to 3rd July) at Old Christ Church in Waterloo Road, L22 1RF, just a few minutes' walk from Waterloo Station. It will have more than 100 beers, plus ciders and perries. Liverpool Organic Brewery is organising it in aid of Jospice, and there's a discount on the admission price for CAMRA members in the form of beer tokens. You'll find more details and directions on the festival website.
Opening times are: Thursday: 6.00 to 11.00 pm. Friday and Saturday: 12.00 to 5.00pm and 6.00 to 11.00pm.
If you allow enough time before it opens, you can stroll down to the seafront to see Antony Gormley's sculpture Another Place, the famous statues on the beach.
