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 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 May 10th - Rhubarb Saison!
