Our brewery is in Leyton, which is in East London.
And our local football team is Leyton Orient, their local brewery is us.
The stadium holds The Supporters Club, which is basically a permanent beer festival, run by ridiculously experienced and enthusiastic volunteers. They care as much about about getting awesome beer in to football matches as we do about getting it in to gigs.
This Friday we have kindly been invited to host a cask takeover, in this award winning venue. Join us from 5pm till late!
Air and light are the enemies of fresh beer, but often at gigs, so is glass.
That is why we have now put three of our beers into cans for the first time.
Getting great beer in to the hands of gig goers has driven us from day one, and making it available in 330ml cans represents a big step forward. We worked with mobile canning outfit, Them That Can, in order to get the beer in to cans, inside our brewery, allowing us to be directly involved in the process.
We have partnered with Independent Venue Week to launch the cans of Roadie, Backstage IPA and Studio Lager, exclusively in venues all across the country! Starting today. Follow @IVW_UK on twitter for more info.
When we starting working with Heck (formally known as Baby Godzilla) we already knew the beer would be one thing, BIG. The boys didn't disappoint, through genuine beer knowledge and an alternative approach to pretty much everything, Bullhorn was born. Matching the intensity of a Heck gig is no mean feat, but we hope Bullhorn will hit drinkers with the same magnitude as those first, bone shaking chords.
The artwork was commissioned especially for the beer, and was realised by Greek Illustrator, Kostis K. / inkanddestroy.com. We'll see more of that in the coming months.
The beer launched on Saturday with a ridiculous gig at a warehouse, where Bullhorn was flowing alongside Roadie, Studio and Black Vinyl. After a quick visit to our Backstage Bar at the brewery, the band got a round in for the entire crowd, which was terribly nice of them.
