Red Lion Tap Takeover!

Afternoon all,

We're taking over the taps at the Red Lion in Leytonstone on Friday 12th October!

If you're in the area of Leytonstone High Road and pop into the Red Lion, expect to see the following cask beer on the bar...

East End Mild
3.5% abv, Mild with hints of toffee and herbs.

Jim Wilson Bitter
3.8% abv, light bitter with a lovely dry finish.

London Extra
5.3% abv, Amber coloured Bitter, the recipe is adapted from one from the 1820's.

Coffee in the Morning
5.3% abv, Our widely acclaimed coffee stout made with fresh ground coffee beans from the Grind coffee shop, our neighbour at Westfield!

Urban Hop
4.8% abv, Our first ever Fresh hop beer, the hops came from Jim's garden and we got 5 kilos of Target hops into the brew!

So we're sending some cracking beers down the road to Leytonstone and the Red Lion is a great place to enjoy them. 

We hope to see you there!

Proceedings start at around 6pm and the address of the Red Lion is :

WE'RE IN IT!



TWICE!

You can get your copy now at any decent book retailer.

International Arms Race

Next Wednesday, September 19th, Tap East will be playing host to the latest round of Brewdog and Flying Dog's fight for supremacy in their International Arms Race.




The International Arms Race is an IPA made without any hops! Crazy notion we think but we are intrigued to find out what they taste like!


So if you have an hour or two free on Wednesday night from 7pm, come and join us for some Doggy Fun and Zero IBU's and you can decide who the winner is!

We hope to see you Wednesday!

Getting Fresh!

So if you're a bit geeky about your beer like we are, you might have noticed that there's lots of green (or fresh) hop beers coming out at the moment.

Guess what? We're doing the same!

Our Brewer, Jim will be picking the hops vines in his garden on Friday morning and then we're(Jim and Glyn) going to brew with them the very same day!

Having already had a sniff of one of these delightful hop cones, I'm now pretty excited to be brewing with them.

We have yet to pick a name for the beer  but since Fresh Hop beers are meant to be drunk as fresh as possible we'll be launching it on Friday 28th September.

Names ideas will be considered so if you have ideas then let us know.

More info will come out as I know more but, we'll most likely be live blogging it too so keep an eye out on Friday!
