Meet the brewer at the Railway Hotel Thursday 16th March

As part of Sheffield Beer Week we’re doing an informal meet the brewer at the Railway Hotel on Bramall Lane, Sheffield.

James will be there to talk about the Brew Foundation’s first twelve months, tell you about our beers and about our future beers and plans.

There will also be the chance to taste Laughing Water in 330ml can, unfined and unfiltered for an extra cirtus hop kick. Be the first in the UK to try it!

James will be there at the bar from 7pm and there will be a variety of Brew Foundation beers on offer on cask and keg plus free samples of all bottled beers. It’s free entry but if you buy a ticket from the bar in advance for £5 you get two free pints (well not free, but you get the point).

Any questions drop us a line or call the Railway on 07970 940595.

Janet’s Treat Porter is back in cask, keg and bottle!

We were only going to brew Janet’s Treat Porter once a year at Christmas time but it went down so well that we’ve been asked to brew it again…so we have! The latest batch of Janet’s Treat is going into cask tomorrow and bottles and kegs will be available again in about a fortnight.

This cherry, chocolate porter is a collaboration brew with Wincle Beer Company (where we cuckoo brew out of) and we’ve added even more real cherries this time. Lots of chocolate malt is used to add rich chocolatey bitterness to balance against the cherry sweetness. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Get in touch if you’re a pub who’d like a cask or keg, or keep your eyes peeled in your favoruite watering holes and bottle shops for it.

Therefore The Brew Foundation is at Rodney Densem Wine on Pillory Street giving away tasters of our beers and special offers on packs of bottles.

We’ll be there from 11am so come on down, have a chat with brewer James and Robert from The Brew Foundation about our beers and future beers.

Now, whose side are we supposed to be on for this battle re-enactment???

Our IPA, Hop & Glory, makes a welcome return.

Guess who’s back? Hop & Glory, that’s who! After a few months hiatus due to problems sourcing one of the hops, our 4.9% IPA Hop & Glory is making a welcome return to the shelves and pumps of the UK.

Bottles and kegs of Hop & Glory were picked up yesterday and casks are already out and about in pubs.

Brewed using three hops: Magnum, Cascade and Rakau; Hop & Glory is a full bodied IPA with tropical and floral notes. It’s always been a popular part of our core range and we’re pleased that it’s back in the lineup!

If any other pubs or bottle shops would like to get involved then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
