  • 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.
    Breweries involved include ourselves, Siren Craft Brew, Casita, Partizan Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, Beavertown Brewery, Magic Rock, Modern Times Beer, Sante Adairius Rustic Ales, Wild Beer Co., Side Project Brewingt, Burning Sky Brewery & 3 Floyds Brewpub


    FREE entry - no ticket required, come and taste the rainbow!


    We'll also have live music from The Curragh Sons and serving food until 8.30pm.


    If you can’t make it to the brewery this time, no worries. The beers will also be available from HonestBrew online (Saturday 25th), Magic Rock Brewery (Friday 24th), Wild Beer Co Bars (Saturday 25th) and Siren Craft Brew (Saturday 25th).

  • 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.
