    All over the place!

    This weekend see’s our intrepid team scattered across the country at beer events. Starting with Leeds international beer fest, in our opinion one of the UK’s best beer fests, bringing some of the finest UK and international breweries together. This year sees it running at high speed in to its 7th year, and we’ve been lucky enough to be along for all 7 of them. You’ll see us pouring beers such as La’al Lager, Wheat Goes On, Mosaic, Flump King, Tiramisu, Great White and NZPA all weekend.

    Next up BeaverEx, bringing together 60 of some of the worlds best breweries in one venue, all pouring their own beer. Brewing is forever an evolution and whatever your thoughts on Beavertown’s choices, we are committed to the brewing and beer community and will be pouring some of our best beers there this weekend including, Here She Goes, Key Lime Tau, La’al Lager, Flump King, Wheat Goes On and Tiramisu. So, if you’re attending one of these beery events, come give us a high five and drink some beer with us.

  • Our Rainbow Beer Revealed....

    Yellow was brewed in Collaboration with Modern Times Beer in San Diego, in a truly tansatlantic, transcontinental collaboration. After a lengthy hike in the desert by the sea that is San Diego, a vision struck us simultaneously. A vision of bright fruit and vibrant rays. Of quaffable sunshine in a bottle. Brewed with Pilsner, wheat, and spelt and hopped with Hallertau Blanc and Amarillo. We fermented this with Modern Times house wild yeast and a wildly foraged yeast found on Loganberries. After fermentation Yellow rested in red wine barrels and then went through a secondary refermentation on over 3lbs/gallon Southern California Apricots.

    Beer name: Yellow
    Beer style: Mixed culture barrel aged saison w/ apricots
    ABV: 7.5%

    Pours a pale starlit gold, with a light white head. Aroma of sunripe apricot skin and a flavor that matches followed by a juicy flesh finish. A balancing tartness and bright fruitiness round out the sensory experience.”

    Find Yellow, and the other rainbow project beers pouring at our Tap – The Beer Hall on 25th August!

  • The International Rainbow Project began back in 2013 and has been an exciting and innovative project for us since, make life long brewing friends, creating and exploring styles that once were never even thought of. Sharing and developing ideas with some of the best brewers in the world and being involved in this project has been an amazing journey and lots of fun each year.

    Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, so we’d love for you to join us at The Beer Hall for the last ever Rainbow Project!


    On Saturday 25th August we'll be revealing the final Rainbow collaborations. All seven are barrel aged, devised and made over time since last year's announcements. All seven will be on tap from midday and boxes available to take away.

  • Thursday 06/28 sees this year's Key Lime Tau released, KLT will be available from midday on Cask, Keg and in bottle to take away at The Beer hall and to order online.

    We will also have the Crooked Stave version of Key Lime Tau in Keg and Bottle for you to try both versions side by side!!

    Our kettle-soured, lactose infused Golden Ale brewed with fresh lime zest and lemon grass to taste biscuity and strongly of lime... just like a key lime pie. We called it Key Lime Tau because of the doubling up - it was a collab between two brewers, has been brewed on both sides of the Atlantic and mathematically Tau is 2 x Pi (3.142) or τ = 2π, which is also the strength - 6.28%... simple really! First brewed in collaboration with Crooked Stave (USA) for the 2015 International Rainbow Project.

    Why have one day when we can have a full weekend to celebrate this years release of Key Lime Tau!

    With Key Lime Tau on Cask, Keg and in bottle we'll also have an American inspired menu available from Thursday all weekend with dishes such as Buttermilk Chicken, Frickles, Clam Chowder and New Orleans’s style Po’Boy but that's not all......Saturday night we're host our very first Northern Soul Night! with Cosmo Vinyl Experience on the decks!

    So bring your best moves and drink some great beer.
