This weekend is the inaugural Craft Beer Calling festival in Newcastle. We are very excited to be part of this event, the first of its kind in the city. The beer scene in the Toon has exploded over the past few years, and shows no signs of stopping. Taking place in the Boiler Shop behind Central Station, Craft Beer Calling is set to showcase the best of local beers alongside some of Britain's best, and some rare and exciting brews from overseas.
A selection of our ales will be available at various times over the weekend, including our popular Mocha Milk Stout on keg, and the only cask of this year's Bourbon Barrel Aged Heavenly Porter. We'll also have our Southern Star, the keg version of our Hand Drawn Monkey collaboration, Barrel of Monkeys, and a rare cask of Silver Dollar which has been dry hopped with Citra.
We'll be there tonight to sample some beers and have a chat, and also on Sunday for the North East Brewery Panel. There are still a few tickets left for the Sunday sessions, so if you haven't already, make sure you grab one. Hopefully see you tonight!
