Call Your Friends, White Cell & Crossing Over Launches

  • The Bottle Shop

Why collab once with a brewery when you could collab twice?!Ie: one time at your place and one time at theirs?! And why stop there? 

We're doing things a little different these days with our collaborations and with Time and Tide, we've really done something epic.

Come enjoy the launch of the fruits of our crazily cool ideas and labour at the Bottle Shop Bermondsey Friday 16th June.

Launching on tap are our 2 collabs, both exceptionally executed coffee-forward beers: one a Double Black IPA, the other a White Stout:

And the blend of both, with we intended to and have achieved being a reverse Black and tan!

It's all been a bit clever but also a whole lot of fun, so this event intends to be the same.

Included also is a neat dual tap-takeover from ourselves and our friends at Time & Tide. Other beers from us on tap include:

Little Things That Kill 3.9% Session IPA

The Frog Is Fired 4.4% Gooseberry Pale

Gumball 9.4% DIPA

From 7pm, expect an intimate tasting with people from both teams too. We've called our friends, now you call yours!

Leuven Innovation Beerfestival #3
Jun 5

Leuven Innovation Beerfestival #3

  • De Hoorn

So we have a lot of brewer friends in Belgium and that's not just restricted to Brussels so if there's a festival in BE, we're probably there. It doesn't mean that we get any less excited by invites. When Leuven's brilliant beer festival was announced and Jef from Hof Ten Doormal invited us, we were all like HELLS YEAH!

Those of you who aren't in the know, Leuven's Innovation Beer Festival is run by Leuven's local brewery Hof Ten Doormal, who make a very tasty, flawless mix of modern day fresh and wild beers (those guys know what they are doing) and the festivals celebrates great and innovative brewing all round. Emphasis on bringing exceptional brewing skills home to Leuven, where (disclosure they're now big guys) brewmasters of Stella Artois started. Being part of this fest is more than cool.

What's all the rage???

The theme: INNOVATION, so all the breweries are bringing something cool AF and experimental a.k.a a little something fresh or different.

The breweries: in total 19 international and well-renowned for making delicious beer brewers will be over, see the lineup in the links we've provided!

Additionally you get the chance to play around with this brewery-run new app by Beerhive for beers and can log your tasting experience at the festival. Our beers, notes and "spiders" are here.

Beer launching in the afternoon!

Plus a few beers of our beers and a few from our friends at Pig & Porter on tap, a selection of both breweries bottles and/or cans.

Follow The Worms Tasting

  • Hereford Beer House

December just gone, Jonny Bright our former Lead-brewer, brewed with us once again. 

The plan was a strong stout, something we'd done together once before with maple syrup before we decided to use agave nectar this time. As a result “Follow the worms”  was borne! A 'Mexican Export Stout', mixing agave with the perfect amount of chilli. Its name and label reference both current political affairs and song lyrics...Jonny was never one to quell his opinions.

With 3 of our beers on draft and a selection of bottles at Hereford Beer House, Jonny's place, meet Head-brewer Bryan to find out more of the beer and us!  

Beers on tap from 12pm.

Cosy, informal and free admission Meet the brewer from 5pm.

A little more about "Fruitbat" and its fruition will be up on our blog, but for all intensive purposes and to whet you appetites, it's made with British-grown strawberries, blackberries, malts and hops. We reckon it's going to be a quintessential go-to pint for our English Sprummer (aka Spring meets Summer). 

Come join us for a school-night soiree and if we're really up for it, a-capella renditions of Carter USM

Weird Beard Vs. Holy Cheese Mountain at The Cock Tavern
5:00 pm17:00

Weird Beard Vs. Holy Cheese Mountain at The Cock Tavern

Ever thought there was nothing better than a great pub with great beer?

Well how about a great pub with loads of great beer and a MOUNTAIN of artisanal and select cheese  at a very appetising price?! The cheese is supplied by none other than the vanguards of amazing, well-sourced cheese, Raw Cheese Power.

We don't condone excessive beer drinking but excessive cheese eating may help you through the amazing line-up of 8 kegs and several casks! Expect a satisfying mix of our core, occasional, special and rare brews across the taps at The Cock Tavern, Hackney for this event. You can bet both beers and cheeses brought to the table will be fantastic and you can ask ourselves on the night for any suitable beer & cheese pairing reccommendations. We love that shiz. The pub itself is mish mash of homely, bustling, traditional yet on trend, much like most of East-London, with the added bonus of being Beard Friendly.

This is just a conceptual image of a cheese mountain, Holy Cheese mountain includes many many wonderful cheeses. Prepare for a cheese-feast! 

This is just a conceptual image of a cheese mountain, Holy Cheese mountain includes many many wonderful cheeses. Prepare for a cheese-feast! 

And if our brewer isn't suffering from a cheese induced food-coma, there'll be a Meet The Brewer aspect to the eve, roundabout 7pm.

Come for beer, come for cheese and come for the piano music! (Anyone who knows the Cock Tavern, knows that's what it's all about).

Pepto-bismol recommended but not essential. See you then!

Opulence - our 400th brew's lavish launch
6:00 pm18:00

Opulence - our 400th brew's lavish launch

  • Drafthouse Westrbidge

Our 400th brew "Opulence", a Madagascan Vanilla Bean Imperial Stout was expertly designed as a "Double Decadence" and we're very proud to announce its release.

We've made an exceptionally luxurious Imperial Stout that we've spent a slightly ludicrous amount of money on high-grade Vanilla for it, we've turned down label designs until they were exactly what we had in mind, we gave it the waxed bottle treatment usually only reserved for Sadako and we aged it for a few months to hit that sweet spot for its release. It's something of perfection but we'll let you decide on that yourselves.

Come see the launch of this beautiful beer and meet the brewer, Ben at Drafthouse Westbridge from 6pm Friday 28th April. 

Should you wish to truly indulge in all things opulent, there will the option of pairing the beer with a trio of glorious desserts.

More details of the event here.

And now the time has come to release and enjoy them and we're doing so at our favourite BrewDog bar in London, Brewdog Shepherd's Bush.
