Book Club at Tap East

On Tuesday 7th April our very own Lizzy will be hosting the first ever book club to take place here at Tap East. Liz has decided to kick things off with a classic, therefore the book under discussion for the first session will be George Orwell's Animal Farm. All are welcome. Hopefully this will turn in to a regular event for the beer loving bookworms among you.

So come along for conversation of a literary nature, and a craft beer or two.

07/04/15 - 6:30pm

Two Brewers Series Launch

On Thursday 2nd April we will be launching the first in our brand new "Two Brewers Series". To create this series we have been joined by our old friend Eddie Baines. A familiar face to many at Tap East, Eddie was our first ever Head Brewer, he was here when we opened back in 2011 and helped to establish some of the core beers we still brew today. He left in March 2012 but has returned to help us brew a series of one off collaborative specials.

First up is Ginger Beer'd, a 5.7% wheat beer flavoured with a kilo of root ginger. Based on one of Eddie's original recipes he teamed up with our Head Brewer Jonny Park in order to brew in our two and a half barrel kit. The result will be revealed on the 2nd April, with the first cask going on tap at 6pm. Both Jonny and Eddie (the two brewers) will be here for the launch, giving you the chance to talk water, malt, hops, yeast and ginger with the people behind the brew.
