Tap East Brew Pub Week 21st - 27th April

From 21st - 27th April Tap East will be celebrating the Brew Pub. This means that for the duration of the week we will be dedicating as many of our taps as possible to serving beer crafted at some of Britain's best breweries, who like ourselves, are situated within a pub or bar. We have made a concerted effort to try to source beer from a wide variety of different Brew Pubs, from the local to the further afield. From well known favourites to the new and upcoming. Throughout the week you can expect to sample beers from the likes of Shiny Brewery (The Furnace Inn, Derby), The Barnet Brewery (The Black Horse, Barnet) Mill Green Brewery (The White Horse, Edwardstone), The Pied Bull (Chester), Peoples Pints (People's Park Tavern, Victoria Park), Canterbury Brewers (The Foundry, Canterbury), London Brewing Co. (The Bull, Highgate) and more. Not to mention that on Thursday 24th April we will be launching a very special one off brew of our own. More details of which will follow...

What's Brewing?

Some old favourites and new specialities brewing this week at Tap East. In FV 1 we have our Aussie IPA, a fairly new Australian hopped version of our India Pale Ale that has proved so popular it has quickly become a regular at the brewery tap. In FV 2 we have our American Pale Ale, and in FV 3 we have the Tap East Tonic Ale. But fermenting away in FV 4 we have a very special new beer. It is an imperial version of our famous Coffee In the Morning, which once fermented should reach nearly 9% abv. It is a parting gift from our head brewer Jim Wilson, who will be leaving us this month. The original Coffee In the Morning, which Jim first brewed at Tap East using coffee from our neighbours Grind, has now cemented itself as one of our signature brews. A dark smooth coffee flavoured stout, that has become a familiar favourite to many a Tap East regular. So we all hope that the Imperial Coffee In the Morning proves itself to be just as good, if not better!
