Beers featuring @ The Wirral Craft Beer Festival

Beer #1. 86/100 on ratebeer. This beer won Gold Medal Regional Champion in Stouts last year, so you know it’s good. Smooth, chocolatey and balanced coffee bitterness.

Beer #2. 3.5/5 on UnTappd. Sour beer hopped with a heaping scoop of El Dorado. A perfect balance of sour, refreshing & hoppy.

Beer #3. 87/100 on Ratebeer. ABC’s fabulous NEIPA Juice Springsteen, but with the delicious addition on Lactose & Vanilla.

Beer #4 This beer is so new it doesn’t have a Ratebeer score. But trust us, it’s amazing. Locally made in Liverpool, this beer has been made with oats, raspberry and lactose.

Beer #5. 85/100 on Ratebeer. In collaboration with legendary brewery Brasserie De La Senne, this is a summery fusion of esters, grassy and sweet banana

Beer #6. 94/100 on Ratebeer. Of course, big orangey flavours ring true, but it’s backed up with more, more, more Orangey goodness with the addition of Citra, Mandarina Bavaria and fresh Tangerine Peel.

Whiskey Tasting Night Review

Wednesday night saw us hosting our World Whiskey Tasting Night, featuring 6 Whiskies from 6 different countries. The products tasted on the night, in order, were: Isle Of Jura Journey (Scotland), Paul John Brilliance (Indian), Jamesons Caskamates IPA edition (Ireland), Suntory Chita (Japan), Pike Creek 10 year Old Rum Finish (Canada) and Virginia Black (USA). The menu for the night was supplied by The Galley, was Pear & Brie Soup for starters, Balsamic Black Pepper & Cherry Glazed Salmon as the main, with Plum Crumble served with Butterscotch Cream for dessert.

It was a close call between Paul John Brilliance and Suntory Chita as to which was the favourite Whiskey tasted on the night, in the end Suntory Chita just edged it by one vote.

Below are a few images from the night:

Wirral Craft Beer Festival

The summer is here and the festival season has begun; beer festivals we mean of course! 2018 will be a bit more special than most years, as it sees the launch of the inaugural Wirral Craft Beer Festival (hosted by The Ship & Mitre), from 9th – 12th August, and boy do we have some treats for you guys…

As you walk in, you’ll be greeted by fantastic darkness, don’t worry we have remembered to pay the ‘leccy’ bill, we’re talking about the selection of dark beers on offer:
Bristol Beer Factory – Milk Stout Northern Monk – Imperial PB & J Pillars – Choc Orange Lager
Saugatuck – Neopolitan Stout Northern Monk – Northern Star Tailgate – Peanut Butter Stout
Gypsy Hill – Night Owl Lost & Grounded – Running with Spectres Yeastie Boys – Pot Kettle Black
Island Records – Jamaica Porter Kiln – Darker Shade of Pale Wild Weather – Shellfish Basterd

Dark beers not for you? Perhaps you’re looking for something to get your taste buds wired without the heaviness of a stout, if so then the Saison and Sour section that’s next along the wall should do the trick
Brasserie Dupont – Saison Dupont Redchurch – Resins Two Roads – Workers Comp
Burning Sky – Saison Northern Monk – Patrons Project 11.01 Rhubarb Sour Siren – Calypso 22
Magic Rock – Damn Son Kinnegar – Olans Tart Weird Beard – Sour Slave
North – Vespertine Beerbliotek – That’s Not How Anagrams Work Mate Anarchy – Acid Rain

Next up on the wall of beer is the biggest section, filled with pale ales and big juicy IPA’s, so there’s plenty more refreshing options to get those tongues wagging
8 Degrees – Sunburn Five Points – JUPA Tiny Rebel – Peaches & Cream
ABC – Moose Springsteen Magic Rock – Botany of Desire Thornbridge – Pineapple Halcyon
Kaiju – Krush Magic Rock – Fantasma Turning Point – Disco Flux
Electruc Bear – Edison Magic Rock – Inhaler Two Tribes – Material World
Northside – Showtime IPA Magic Rock – Saucery Two Tribes/ Lost & Found – Orangumang
Fierce – Crenachen Killer Magic Rock – Cannonball Weird Beard – Little Things Kill

The final section is perhaps where we’ve saved the best to last, as this contains a selection of local favourites from local breweries, including the launch of “Yellow Snow”, collaboration brew between Ad-Hop Brewing and our very own Flagship Beer.

Adhop/Flagship – Yellow Snow Cwrw Ial – Elderflower Pale Heavy Industry – Chinese Burn
Chapter – As Lazarus IPA Handyman – Sour #3 Mad Hatter – Jammy Dodger
Top Rope – Turning Heel Neptune – Nammu

On top of these 50 beers, there will be 5 German beers and 5 Belgian beers on draught, and a selection of 5 core beers from Flying Dog in Colorado, USA. The giving doesn’t stop there either, there will be 6 satellite bars dotted around the hall, a bar each for Camden Town, Beavertown, Stone Brewing, Tiny Rebel, Liverpool Craft and the final bar will have a mystery selection of 4 beers.

The festival will also have a bottle (and can) bar, with a range of over 30 different packaged craft products, from even further afield than our draught selection. With breweries such as Basqueland, Evil Twin, Nogne O, 3 Fonteinen and Prancing Pony all featuring you’d be a fool to not pay it a visit as well.
