throughout 2018 - affinity brew co. 'the calendar series'
Fuggles beer cafe - Tunbridge wells + tonbridge
Another wonderful new brewery we discovered last year was Affinity, now based in their new home in Bermondsey. Initially turned on to them when hearing ex-Brew By Numbers brewer Steve was part of the team (I still think their Saisons are some of the best and luckily Steve took that skill and know how with him when they produced 'Breeze'.
Each month we'll be part of a very small club launching one off beers from Affinity. We'll be aiming to try and launch these beers hopefully on the second Thursday of each month (don't quote us on this, beer can be temperamental, as can delivery and brewing schedules!)
Next beer launches on July 6th - an Orange & Cranberry Saison (brewed in part to protest Trump's visit!)

MEET THE CRUMBER - CRUMBS BREWING
Fuggles beer cafe - tonbridge - 3RD AUG 7PM
We discovered Crumbs Brewing at this years Tonbridge Food & Drink Festival. We've tried a few beers made from leftover bread, brioche, croissants and the like but none have really worked for us. But these guys impressed us enough to invite them over for a tasting! So come and meet the guys behind these great beers made out of leftover bread!
"We brew beer using leftover artisan bread from our local Chalk Hills Bakery in Reigate Surrey. We’re doing our bit for the growing problem of food waste and, as each of our beers uses a different style of loaf in its recipe, creating unique brews that make the most of such a delicious ingredient." - crumbsbrewing.co.uk

They'll be setting up shop, literally, in the pub on the above dates between 12 & 5pm so pop in, grab a beer and buy some vinyl! (Or some of their fab merchandise). The Vinyl Revolution team will also be curating the days playlist and we can't wait to see what they've got in their record bag for us!

We’ve a whole heap of amazing beer in our fridges and we really want to share it with you. So each month, one of our team will be hosting an informal bottle club tasting.
