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.
Friday 25th August 5:30-8pm: Meet the Brewer - Hop Stuff Brewery
'Craft beer ought to be for everyone’
This idea spurred James to start Hop Stuff Brewery in 2013. He ditched the white-collar life to make craft beer to share with anyone - whether a green bottle beer drinker, a craft aficionado or his sweet old grandma.
"We’re all about crafting tasty beers that bring the crew together – so our range covers all palates; from sessionable to sippable – keg, can and cask."
We will have a selection of Hop Stuff beers available to taste, free of charge!
Friday 22nd September 5:30-8pm: Meet the Brewer - Harviestoun Brewery
"It all started on a sunny day on October 5th, 1983. We'd love to say that it was one of the most memorable days of founder, Ken Brooker's life, but that night he hosted one of his legendary tasting sessions and he can't remember much about it. In the years that follow, Ken continues to brew beers in his shed and host his friends. Word spreads and his friends begin to bring along their friends and their friends' friends, until eventually Tuesday nights at Ken's attracts up to 40 people!"
We will have a selection of Harviestoun beers available to taste, free of charge!
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.
