We’re at that time of the year again. It’s getting a bit colder, then a little warmer one day, then colder again and then it will stay cold for at least another ten months, however we like to brighten up those dark evenings with our very own Euro-Tober-Fest, running for a whole six days we aim to have beers that will hopefully tickle your euro zone and satisfy all your needs!
Launching on Tuesday 30th September with an evening with La Trappe, hosted by Dieter Lauwers. He’ll be talking to us about all things Trappist and giving us a little history lesson while we taste some amazing beers, a couple of which we’ve never had the opportunity to try before. New beer is always exciting!
While we’re at it and as a few of you have been enquiring, I think it’s time we filled you in with what’s going on with the Rainbow beers. This year the Rainbow Project has been a series of collaboration beers between some of the best breweries in the UK and around Europe so fittingly we’re going to be having them on during Euro-tober-Fest.
From Wednesday 1st October we will have all seven beers on, some of the beers will be available in cask, some in keg and others in bottles. There’s some pretty big ones this year, as some of you are probably already aware, they’re all 7% and up! For those who don’t know about the Rainbow Project, seven breweries each brew a beer using one of the colours of the rainbow as inspiration. Last year we ended up with some weird and wonderful things, this time around promises to be even better with the addition of the collaborations. We’re also going to be mixing it up a little and having some available in cask, keg and bottles.
Come join us, drink, be merry. Give us sympathetic glances over the bar as we run out of the Buxton & Omnipollo collab without having had chance to sit and sip some and give it a proper taste. Feel some guilt that you enjoyed the last little bit. Feel that guilt wash away in some peanut & biscuit 11% stouty goodness.
