This year at Craft Beer Rising we had an absolute blast, made some new mates and drank some awesome beer.
We commissioned Ali Hamish Campbell to do us an original piece of artwork right there at the show, we gave him full discretion and we weren’t disappointed.
CBR is a great place to meet people and geek out about beer, Will and Tom went to the Goose Island tasting event and had a proper geek out with their brewer Dave, drinking Bourbon County Brand Stout 2016!
Thanks to everyone who played ‘flip cup’ or (when we ran out of cups) ‘bottle flips’ with us! We couldn’t believe how many of you got the bottle flips on the first go! Secret talents… Definitely going to have to come up with a new game for next time, suggestions welcome.
We got to showcase some new recipes!
The Tropic went down a treat, we had people asking for it all weekend! The Snake Oil, Magic Potion and Rye Porter were also popular. It was great to have such a good selection this year including our core range West Coast Pale Ale, Craft Lager and soon to be re-added India Session Ale V2. What would you like us to brew in the future? We’re starting a sour this Friday 3rd March. It will be part of the pilot range, more details to follow.
Thank you so much to everyone who tried our beers, chatted with us about beer, played games with us and generally just enjoyed the weekend with us. Already looking forward to next years shenanigans. Hopefully if you couldn’t make it this year, we will see you next time.
