Various Venues

Stout Festival

As the days get colder and shorter we’re all finding ourselves reaching for the darker beers. To celebrate, we’re holding a weekend-long Stout Festival to launch our latest beer; Jerk Stout (in collaboration with 12:51 restaurant) and showcase some amazing stouts from our favourite breweries – including our own Blackhorse Milk Stout and Fennel and Orange Imperial Stout.  Guest beers as below:

Wiper & True (Bristol, UK) – Milk Shake – A milk stout using sugar made
from cows milk to give the beer a sweet, creamy tone. Bristol breweries
were once famous for brewing the best milk stouts around.
Almasty (Newcastle, UK) – Chocolate & Caramel Stout – A bittersweet
pudding-in-a-glass beer with added caramel.
Northern Alchemy Dark Chocolate & Mint Milk Stout 5.1% – “A malt base of
Pale, Crystal, Chocolate, Roasted Barley and a handful of Oats. Gently
hopped on Bramling Cross and Pacific Jade. Lactose and 90% Cocoa Dark
Chocolate are added to the late boil. This Milk Stout is then
conditioned on a whole load of torn mint leaves.”
CASK Wylam Macchiato 6.5% – Hazelnut Praline Coffee Porter… a complex
grain bill for extra body and mouth feel, lactose providing that
smoothness for a cold brew hazelnut coffee to shine through in this
winter warming porter.
*NEW RELEASE* Two Tribes x Wild Weather Ales (Kings Cross/Reading, UK) –
Pasila chillies give the beer a chocolatey, smokey and liquorice like
flavour. Earthy, full-bodied with a slight spice of cinnamon quills,
cassia bark and black cardamom.
*SPECIAL* Mikkeller (Copenhagen, DK) – Oatmeal Oregon Fruit Series Flat
White Cherry Stout – Fruity, Rich and Roasted.  This Flat White Stout
with Cherry was made in collaboration with Oregon Fruit and Coffee
Collective where they paired sweet cherries with Ethiopian coffee and
lactose to create a delicious and creamy stout!
*EXTRA SPECIAL* To Ol (Copenhagen, DK) – Goliat Maple Beacon –  Smokey
Imperial Coffee Stout matured with Bourbon soaked oak chips.
*EXTRA EXTRA SPECIAL* Gueuzerie Tilquin x La Rulles (BE) – Stout
Rullquin – 1 release per year, brewed since 2014. 7/8 of La Rulles Brune
and 1/8 of lambic, refermented in oak barrels at Gueuzerie Tilquin for 8
months. An exceptional beer that gently marries roasted flavors,
fruitiness and well-balanced acidity.

Brick x 12:51

We’ve teamed up with our pals at 12:51 restaurant where head chef is Champion of Champions of The Great British Menu, James Cochran, to bring an exciting evening of food and beer pairings. They are serving up a 6 course tasting menu together with beer matching led by some of the team.

We’ve also made a collaborative beer with them using malt smoked by James in his home town of Whitstable combining his secret mix of spices to create a lightly smoked and subtly sweet base in this full bodied Jerk Stout.

How do animals respond to music?

This Friday 5th October 2018, sees the launch of a new display on our artists wall.

Graeme (aka grohs) is a multi-tasking artist, illustrator, graphic designer, art director, DJ and sound artist whose work focuses on everything and nothing in particular. In a development of his successful project Dogs Responding To The Huge Tunes, Graeme is creating Fantazia Does Fantasia – Animals Responding To The Huge Tunes

Exploring the present moment and in particular the euphoric feeling once can experience at a rave, in a nightclub, listening to music or indeed just having a nice time with friends in a fine drinking establishment, this showcase will turn the wall into a “club for animals”- a mural featuring various speakers,“clubartifacts”, songtitles, lyrices and animals – think Disney’s Fantasia set in 90’s rave scene Fantazia.

Lions roaring for the rave. Elephants with their trunks in the air. Hippos shouting for a rewind.

Intrigued?  We certainly are.  Launching this Friday at the Tap Room, Graeme will be there for any artist questions, plus he will be bringing his kit and DJ’ing for us.  It won’t be a rave but we are hoping you will get that euphoric feeling, so come and join us from 5pm – midnight.

You can find out more about Graeme’s work here  

The work will be on display until the 23rd November 2018
