Come visit our bar at the Nantwich Food Festival 2017

Nantwich Food Festival 2017 is taking place this coming weekend, Friday 1st September until Sunday 3rd September. As food festivals go, Nantwich Food Festival is pretty much a big deal, and this year is no exception. Bake Off fans will be pleased to hear that last year’s winner Candice Brown is the headline chef this year (along with loads of other chefs and celebs too, check out the Food Theatre section of their website). The Nantwich Food Festival 2017 showcases food and drink producers, and sellers, from Cheshire and across the country.

We, the Brew Foundation, will have our mobile bar set up in the Town Square just inside Cheerbrook Farm marquee. If you came last year to see us we’re in a similar location to then; location bang in the centre of town. We’ll have a rotating range of cask and keg beers available all weekend in pints and halves, plus bottles and cans to take home and enjoy. As always there will special offers on presentation packs.

Make sure you come and have a pint with us in the Cheerbrook Farm marquee. We’ve even heard a rumour that there may be some steak and ale pies made with Little Bitter That available too! Yum!

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.

Another new beer on it’s way: Pop!

It’s like waiting for a bus: two arrive at once! Hot on the heels of our recent Laughing Water, next week sees a new session strength pale ale from The Brew Foundation called: Pop.

Pop will be nice and light in colour and strength (3.6% abv). Made from a new English hop called Olicana and dry hopped with lots of Mosaic to make our latest beer a hoppy session ale with a passionfruit and blueberry hop kick.

Due to it’s hoppy aroma and taste we’ve called this one “Pop”. Casks will be ready from 21st October, with bottles and kegs ready shortly after then. Pop will be available at all our usual stockists but keep your eyes peeled for it and follow our social media accounts to find out where you can pop in for a pint of Pop.

Before Christmas we also aim to bring out our first dark beer, a long awaited porter. We’ll keep you posted on that so there’ll be more details to follow.
