It seems to have been a bit of a quiet week on the old beer scene, it was good to see the announcement of a taproom and lambic bar from Beer Gonzo (@beergonzo1) in Coventry although it is a bit of a ways away yet. Also, in case you missed it, Rock & Roll Brewhouse (@RocknRollBrew) are having a soft opening on Friday for their new tap room, Twisted Barrel (@TwistBarrelAle)have been whetting the appetite with the brewery announcements for the Summer of Far Go Beer Festival – details here https://www.facebook.com/events/1769293146674525/
But really there are only 2 things to talk about this week. First off, that their Cloudwater Brewery (@cloudwaterbrew) from oop north in Manchester are releasing DIPA v6 & v7 this weekend and they will be available in either bottles and/or keg at Tilt , Cotteridge Wines, Stirchley Wine, Clink and the Wildcat. These guys are making consistently good beers, and we are looking forward to seeing what they have brought to the table with these latest iterations…expect lots of twitter and Untappd activity on Saturday evening. And we had a quick chat with Jaz at Cotteridge Wine to find out more about their triple meet the brewer on Aug 26th, from 5 – 9pm. You probably know by now that the latest version of Rule of Thirds has been brewed at Magic Rock, so to celebrate staff from Beavertown, Siren, and Magic Rock will be on hand to chat about this unique collaboration. As well as the aforementioned beer in cans and on keg there will be 3 beers from each brewery including the beers that started it all -Soundwave, Gamma Ray, and Cannonball – other core beers, and maybe a special or 2. Once again well done to the guys for organising such a special event.
One thing we have been doing is reading a few interesting blogs, so if you want to know more about DIPA v6 & 7 check this out http://cloudwaterbrew.co/blog/v6-v7
For a take on what a newbie thought of a beer tasting event we have this
Rebecca Pate (@rpate) will make you a tiny bit jealous with this appraisal of the launch party for London Beer City
And Mark Johnsons (@MarkNJohnson) write up on Manchester beer week is an eye opener on a few different levels – http://www.beercompurgation.co.uk/
So that’s all for now, hope to see some of you over the next couple of weeks at some of these events, and don’t forget to vote for us here
Many Thanks – Dave & Bob
