Newsletter #9 Tap Takeover Crazy!


This weekend saw us celebrating Easter with style. Six taps flowing with Beavertowns best brews. The event marks our second takeover of the year and yes, (teaser alert!) there’s going to be many more to come. In fact, we were suffering with post-Beavertown blues so bad we decided we couldn’t wait much longer and have booked in another tap takeover for this very month! Back, by popular demand, Cloudwater Brewing Co.are taking over the lines on the 20th & 21st! We will be rotating through at least NINE different beers (maybe more) from their current range including one of the special release DIPA’s, starting a noon on the 20th and carrying on until we run out! Excited.Is.An.Understatement.

STAFF PICK

Hacker-Pschorr
Kellerbier Anno 1417

5.5% Unfiltered Lager

Cellar or ‘Keller’ beer gets its name from history, as the one beer offered to customers directly from the storage cellar. This beer is untreated, unfiltered beer with yeast left in, just as before the introduction of filtration in the 19th Century.
This authentic German Lager has a deep golden orange colour, and beautifully bread like aroma. Lager when done well can be an absolute delight, easy drinking and tasty. And this is one of the best examples of that you will find.
I dare you ‘Ale’ drinkers to give this a go…. you will be pleasantly surprised! Lager need not be a dirty word, but more on that in the coming months!
Cheers! Matt 😉
