A Font full of Beers brewed in our own Backyard
After pouring everyone elses’ excellent beers over the last eleven years, we figured it was time to start brewing our own – time to install our own stainless and start walking the walk.
So in early 2014 that’s what we did; in the form of a Premier Stainless 600L Brewhouse with three single batch fermentors. Just the right size to play; enabling us to brew whatever, however and whenever we want. Light-footed, nimble brewing with the freedom of Contract and the stability of Stainless.
And over Good Beer Wheaty Yeastie in May, that’s exactly what we were lucky enough to do; ‘Spooning’ with some of the best, and lovliest Brewers around: Leo (Birra del Borgo), Stuart (Magic Rock), Shane (Sixpoint – from afar), Tobias (To Øl) and Darren (Doctor’s Orders) overseen by ‘Head Spooner’ Yeastie Boys Stu; making sure the Brewhouse buttons worked whilst wearing his Red Weyermann Overalls.
Now it’s time to sample the fruits of these extraordinary collaborations, in addition to a handful of our own Wheaty Brewing Corps beers.
We’ll be pouring:
- Rauch Alici (5.5%) Smoked Porter with Anchovies – Yeastie Boys/Birra del Borgo/Magic Rock
- Fug Oats This is Point of Difference (5.8%) Oaty Pale Ale – Yeastie Boys/Sixpoint/To Øl
- Tonic (4.5%) Gin Mix Wit – Yeastie Boys/Doctor’s Orders
Wheaty Brewing Corps:
- Benatar Bitter Sweet Stout
- Flat Benatar (Handpump) ‘low-carb’ Benatar
- Marching Orders Dark Ale
- Corps Promise Rye Pale
We’ll also be screening the world premiere of a (very) local (very) short film ‘The Wheaty Builds a Brewery’, parking a food truck out front from 6pm, and gunning our Schlook Raffle 6-8pm.
