Every Friday we will have some beer open. On the second and fourth Friday of each month we will have either a 'meet the brewer' or a focus tasting. See below for details on those.
On Saturdays, we will always have some wine open after 1pm and on Sundays we will have some gins and whisky available to try. See below for details of specific tastings.
Friday 26th May 5:30-8pm: Meet the Brewer - Canopy Beer Co.
"Beer is a simple pleasure and Canopy Beer Co is here to bring good beer, done well to our locale. Home for our 12BBL (2000l) microbrewery is a railway arch tucked behind Norwood Road, just a stone's throw from Brockwell Park in Herne Hill.
We brew three times a week and we have an ever-changing rosta of beers alongside our core stalwarts of Brockwell IPA, Sunray Pale Ale, Tall Trees Session IPA and Milkwood Amber. Our brews change regularly because we like to vary what we drink and the advantage of being small is that we have the flexibility to experiment."
We will have a selection of Canopy beers available to taste.
Friday 9th June 5:30-8pm: Meet the Brewer - London Beer Factory
"From day one we have been committed to producing beer with character; beer with unique flavours and engaging aromas; beer brimming with personality and distinctive qualities.
Distilling these principles into every single brew, we have developed a broad range of unfiltered, unpasteurised beer, incorporating a wide array of hops and malts from around the world."
We will have a selection of London Beer Factory beers available to taste.
Friday 7th July 5:30-8pm: Meet the Brewer - Five Points Brewery
We brew all our beer ourselves on site within a Victorian railway arch underneath Hackney Downs Station, or with our partners at a family brewery in Belgium. After many months of recipe development and trial brewing, we brewed our first batch of Five Points Pale on our full commercial brewhouse on the 9th of March 2013.
Our flagship Five Points Pale is one of our core range of now eight beers: Five Points Pale, Hook Island Red, Railway Porter, Five Points IPA, Brick Field Brown, Five Points XPA, Five Points Pils and London Smoke. We produce beers across a multiple range of formats, including keg, cask, can and bottle, which are distributed from our Warehouse space on Mare Street.
We will have a selection of Five Points beers available to taste.
TBA: Meet the Brewer - Fourpure Brewing Co.
"Fourpure is a London based family brewery founded in 2013. Beer is our passion and our travels are what inspire us to brew. Our approach to exceptional brewing is all about attention to detail, not cutting corners and innovating yet staying true to the principles of brewing – respecting the four core ingredients used to make beer: grain, yeast, hops and water. This was the inspiration for the name Fourpure."
We will have a selection of Fourpure beers available to taste.
On Saturdays from 1pm we will have one wine open to taste. We will, if possible, carry this tasting on until Sunday, where we will also have spirits open.
Once a month we will have a special tasting evening, focusing on a specific theme. These will usually fall on the first Thursday of the month but may vary depending on the availability of producers etc. See below for details on those.
Thursday 1st June 5.30-8pm: Tasting with Magui Chadwick of Errazuriz
Caliterra was established in 1996 as a partnership between the Robert G. Mondavi family and Viña Errázuriz, who sought to realize their shared dream of producing high quality wines that reflect the potential of the Chilean nature, terroir and fruit.
Don Maximiano Errázuriz founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870. With his great vision for the future and his innovative, pioneering spirit, he planted the first French grape varieties in the Aconcagua Valley. His initiative and creativity were handed down to future generations and, in just over a century, his descendants consolidated the winery and positioned their wines among the world’s most noteworthy.
Magui will be showcasing a variety of wines, red and white from Errazuriz and Caliterra wineries.
