BIRMINGHAM BEER BASH

So sorry for the short notice, but the Beer Bash returns once more to the Bond Co in Birmingham this weekend. Happening in Digbeth, near to the centre of Birmingham, the Beer Bash is even bigger and better than before!



From today until Saturday 26th July they'll be serving up a selection of beers from the hottest breweries in the UK and around the world, in both keg and cask. There'll also be a return for the world bottle bar, and fantastic street food options to keep hunger at bay, while the "fringe" will once again educate and inform with expert speakers, top tastings and fabulous food matching sessions. Some of the breweries featuring this weekend are:-

Celt Experience and Cell Rebirth
Two breweries in one; one a full blown microbrewery operating out of Caerphilly, Wales producing numerous core beers and a continually growing series of collaborations with breweries from around the UK and further afield.  The other a nanobrewery operating from inside Celt Experience exploring the world of sour beers and indigenous strains of wild yeasts for use in their limited run beers.
 
Compass Brewery
Based in Oxfordshire Compass are returning to Birmingham Beer Bash this year, after bringing a fantastic range of beers  last year including their experimental forced Lambic style beer "Berry" which was well received by festival goers last year.
 

Freedom Brewery
Staffordshire's Freedom Brewery should need no introduction having been around since 1995, producing modern interpretations of classic German styles of beer; if you are interested in Kolsch/Helles/Dunkel or any of the other myriad of Germanic styles of beer then these guys have you covered.

Green Duck Brewing Co
Green Duck Brewing are a new brewery having only recently located themselves and their brewery in Stourbridge; but they have a strong pedigree of beers to their name already having previously brewed their beers on other existing brewery set-ups.
 
 
Harbour Brewing Co
Harbour Brewing Co from North Cornwall are returning to Birmingham Beer Bash again in 2014 bringing with them a range of their excellent beers.  Most recently Harbour were involved in the Sainsbury's Great British Beer Hunt which saw their IPA awarded a contract for supply nationwide for this year.

Liverpool Craft Beer Co
Liverpool Craft Beer joined the Bash last year bringing with them their own bar which allowed them to not only serve their own beers but also to serve at the Cider & Sours Bar.  This year they return again, again bringing their bar with them and a much bigger selection of sour beers.


Magic Rock
Magic Rock from Huddersfield will be coming to Birmingham Beer Bash this year and if their recent appearances at Indy Man Beer Conference are anything to go by they will be bringing a little bit of their magic with them.  A consistently inspiring brewery in the UK; expect something a little different from them.


Purity Brewing Company
Another brewery who should need no introduction and one of the headline supporters of the inaugural Birmingham Beer Bash in 2013. Purity Breing Co based in Worcester have been around since 2005 and have an expanded range of beers as of this year.
 

Salopian
Salopian Brewery from Shropshire have been quietly brewing consistently brilliant beers from their base on a dairy farm on the outskirts of Shrewsbury since 1995.  After a series of well thought out and progressive beers released last year they return to Birmingham Beer Bash to show them off.

Siren Craft Brewery
Siren Craft Brewery from Finchampstead were a late entry in last year's Birmingham Beer Bash but what they did bring with them so impressed that they have been invited back.  This year as well as bringing their fantastic beers, they will also be teaming up with one of the caterers, the Original Patty Men, to bring a set of Siren Sliders (beer matched mini hamburgers).

Thornbridge Brewery
Thornbridge Brewery return again this year and will no doubt be bringing with them a range of fantastic beers which will be available throughout the festival.



I hope to see you there!
