Elusive Brewing Takeover & Meet The Brewer - Tuesday 28th February
Voted as one of the 'Best New Breweries' in the UK last year on ratebeer.com - and we'd agree. Andy Parker took the plunge and opened his brewery just outside Reading last year. We knew it'd be good, Andy's pedigree as an award winning home brewer proceeded him. Clean, precise and well balanced beers with a real focus on quality, we think Elusive are one to really keep an eye on. We'll have the beers on from midday and Andy will be here in the evening to talk all things Elusive. Oh, and we went and brewed a beer with him too especially for the event - 'Elusive Fun' - a Juniper & rye IPA will also be launching that night!
CASK: Starship Fleet (English Pale Ale) 4.2%, Shadow of the Beast (Black IPA) 5%, Sphere of Destiny (Equinox - Session IPA) 4.4%, Ultrahops (Vienna Malt Pale) 4.8%.
KEG: Raspberry Ruin (Raspberry Imperial Malted Milkshake Stout) 8.5%, Level Up Level 5 (American Red) 5%, Elusive Fug (Juniper & Rye IPA) 6%, Flamin' Clickbait (Cherrywood Smoked Steam Lager) 4.8%, The Nightmare Room (brewed with Pig & Porter, a smoked Porter) 6%, Sphere of Destiny (Mosaic - Session IPA) 4.4%, Hopperfenweisse (Hoppy wheat) 4.7%, Vermont Style DIPA (name TBC! Galaxy, Motueka & Nelson hopped Double IPA) 9.5%, 2-UP Baby Barley Wine (made with the runnings from Siren's Maiden Barley Wine) 8.5%.
Time & Tide Tap Takeover - Tuesday 21st March
More details to follow once we've finalised the tap list!
Growlers - Take our draught beer home!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take your favourite draught beer home with you? Well, now you can.
We recently took delivery of our rather lovely Growlers, or Flagons if you prefer. These 2 ltr refillable jugs are perfect for filling with our draught selection and taking home to enjoy. The growlers themselves cost £12.50 and are yours for life - we then offer a 25% discount off our draught pricing to take the beer home. Sounds good huh?
