This Weeks Deliveries (W/C 19/02/18)

This week we will be receiving cask deliveries from our very own Flagship Beer as well as
Mallinsons, George Wright, Great Heck, Blue Bee and Empire. We will also be receiving a small selection from further afield, check back here for updates!!

A full listing of each breweries delivery can be found here

New Bottled/Canned Craft Beer Selection

We’ve refreshed our Craft Beer selection! Sadly to make room in the fridge we had to de-list a few products from our menu, if your first choice is no longer with us, we can hopefully offer you a similar alternative.
As part of the refresh we’ve added a few new beers which we’ve not stocked before (such as Magic Rock Rapture or Thornbridge Chiron), and brought back a few old favourites (such as Beavertown 8 Ball and Camden Town Gentleman’s Wit), which will be permanent listings now.
For those of you who prefer the more quirky beers, fear not, we will still be rotating a few lines in the fridge, so keep your eyes on our social media for any new additions. The First of which is a blueberry sour from local craft brewer Mad Hatter, which recently featured on draught on the bar, see image below:

Sci Bar

SciBar – literally science in a bar!

SciBar meetings are discussions about science that take place while people relax and enjoy a drink. If you have a general interest in science, or one of the topics grabs your attention, then it is a great opportunity to learn more. You do not have to know anything about science – just turn up with an inquiring mind.

What is SciBar?

The SciBar idea came from the national British Science Association.

Local SciBars are set up and run by volunteers.

At a SciBar, the speaker will deliver a talk about their research, work or sometimes their hobby. Following a break for ‘refreshments’ the floor is opened for discussion and questions at any level. SciBar is open to anyone, you don’t have to be a member of the British Science Association – although membership is free if you would like to join.

As we are run as a charity, all we ask is for is a donation ‐ the price of a drink ‐ this helps to pay for speaker’s travel expenses, materials and quiz prizes.

Liverpool SciBar takes place on the first Tuesday of the month, except for August and January.

What topics have been tackled by Liverpool SciBar?

In previous Liverpool SciBars we have discussed bees, ants and toxins. We have had a heated discussion over the moon landings and learnt more about the English longbow and gold panning. Future topics are often chosen from those people getting in touch with us to put themselves forward.

We have a facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/livscibar, where information about events is posted. Or you can contact us via twitter @merseysci. If you think you would like to share your knowledge please get in touch, we are always looking for new speakers and new volunteers.

Here is the details of the next meeting:

Burns Night Whisky Tasting - Thursday 25th Jan 2018

To celebrate Burns Night we will be hosting a Whisky Tasting night in our Function Room on the Thursday 25th January. There will be 6 different Scottish Whiskies to try. There will be authentic Scottish style food to help soak up some of the alcohol. Tickets are £25 per person, with a minimum £10 required to book.

The Whiskies to be tasted on the night are the following:

Isle of Arran Robert Burns Single Malt
Aberfeldy 12 Y.O. Single Malt
Tomintoul 10 Y.O. Single Malt
Chivas Regal Extra Blended
Aberlour 10 Y.O. Double Cask Matured Single Malt
Ardmore Legacy Highland Single Malt

Beer Tasting - 15th July

Our latest Beer Tasting hosted by our head brewer Joe, was a great success with the team from Nynas in Eastham.

He opened with our newest in-house brew, Lupa at 4.1%, a light session pale with plenty of orange peel to whet the palate. Joe gave a quick history of beer while we sampled the classic Pilsner Urquell. Debbie from Yeast Berlin led the tasting of Level, our malty hybrid 80 shilling/bitter style, with samples of its ingredients for tasting.

Flying Dog’s 7.2% IPA bracketed a conversation about hops, with fresh hops brought for a discussion of their function in beer. And we concluded with our popular Silhouette, a rich 4.5% Dry Irish Stout.

All this was assisted by plenty of Scouse from our Galley which kept us more or less on track for the 4 hour sampling session.

If you’re looking for a beer tasting session for your group get in touch. We’d be happy to lead tastings on any combination of beer available, including:

British Ales – Traditional styles with modern ingredients, including pale ales, bitters, stouts and golden ales.

Belgian Styles – From golden ales, to sours, quadrupels and the classic Orval. We’re one of only 15 bars in the UK who are ambassadeurs d’Orval, certified by the brewery for serving quality.

German Styles – Delicate lagers, the unique kölsch from Cologne, smoked rauchbier, and rich doppelbocks. Our very own Kurt is a Brand Ambassador for Czech brewery Pilsner Urquell, trained as a specially qualified server of the Original Pilsner lager

Craft Beer – From our modern bottled and keg range, we can explain and lead a tasting on APAs, IPAs, DIPAs and a range of big stouts, weird sours, and rare imports.

International – a compare and contrast of styles from across the world, picking out the best qualities of British, Belgian, German, and American beers plus others.

All sessions are subject to what’s in stock, but we’ll always do our best to deliver a winning combination of beers with food to match.
