Independent Venue Week 2017 - Strongroom

Signature Brew Independent Venue Week 2017 Strongroom Bar and Kitchen

This week, in our second edition of blogs highlighting great independent venues in the run up to Independent Venue Week 2017 we’re focusing on a venue, bar and recording studios that means an awful lot to Signature Brew.

Strongroom Bar & Kitchen has been a cornerstone of the inimitable Shoreditch nightlife for as long as we can remember and has had a pretty key role in Signature Brews development too. In the pre-refurbed bar Tom, Sam and Dave held their first meeting to discuss their shared animosity towards the state of beer in music venues and there and then decided they should start a brewery. Soon after the first order came in, aptly from Strongrooms, and fast forward 5 years you can still find Roadie on the bar permanently. 

The studios upstairs have been a staple in the world of music for 30 years, with legendary acts such as Radiohead, The Prodigy and even The Spice Girls recording there. Whilst big acts continue to roll off the tongue Strongrooms are also hugely passionate about supporting new music, with weekly live shows from brilliant fresh acts from all over the UK.

It’s been a pleasure watching the bar go from strength to strength over the years, in an increasingly cursory and perfunctory world it’s comforting knowing Strongrooms will maintain it’s quality with good music, good beer and good people at its heart.

Make sure to check out their events page and their Twitter for upcoming gigs, quizzes and open mic nights. And of course, the live acts for Independent Venue Week in January!

Black Tongue - Atlanta Takeover

The awesome Mastodon are playing a huge show at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, USA tonight. The collaboration beer we make with them, Black Tongue, is available on draft at all of the bars in the venue, which should make it an extra special hometown show for them.

For pre and post show drinking though, you can also head down to the Porter Beer Bar or the El Myr in the city to get yourself up for the gig or keep the buzz going long into the night afterwards.
