Friday 8th September will see the launch of 2017's International Rainbow Project.
The Rainbow Project, now in its fifth year, brings together 7 of the UK’s most innovative, forward thinking breweries with 7 counterparts from America. Randomly paired, the collaborating breweries are each given a colour of the rainbow and challenged to create a new beer inspired by that colour.
On Friday 8th September The Beer Hall will host a launch party, along with Leeds International Beer Festival (7th - 10th Sept), Beavertown Extravaganza (8th - 9th Sept), Wild Beer Co Taps (8th – 9th Sept), Bristol Craft Beer Festival (15th - 17th Sept) and Indy Man Beer Con (29th Sept - 1st Oct)
The free event at The Beer Hall will see all 7 of the rainbow beers served on draught keg plus mixed cases of bottles will be on sale.
