The Co-operative Food is offering different parts of the UK their own range of British real ales. From an Arran Blonde for Scots to a Golden Hare for those in the South West, the range varies in style and will include 56 new additions.

The move is part of the retailer’s commitment to community retailing and offers a sustainable route to a market solution by sourcing its range from breweries near to its stores.

Co-Operative FoodJoe Turner, The Co-operative real ale buyer, said: “As a convenience retailer positioned in the heart of the community, this is an important first step in our commitment to offering the right range to our customers. Across the UK, our shoppers’ needs are different and it’s important to acknowledge that.

“With more people than ever before enjoying real ale and local offerings a crucial part of its success, it’s exciting to collaborate with such a great variety of breweries across the UK — many for the first time — and we hope our customers really enjoy the new ranges designed for them.”

Shoppers will be able to find up to 14 ales, which have been sourced from nearby breweries, along with up to 11 national British ales, including The Co-operative’s own-brand offering, all mix and match (three for £5).

The ale relaunch kicks off an ongoing campaign by The Co-operative to introduce even more locally-sourced products across its 2,800 stores, from cheese to desserts.

Black Wolf Pipe Band

Black Wolf Brewery director Andrew Richardson with Stockbridge pipe major Euan Whitmore

Stockbridge Pipe Band and Black Wolf Brewery have joined forces to create a new cask beer in celebration of the band’s 20th anniversary.

The guest beer will be stocked by 14 bars in Stockbridge, and more widely in Edinburgh, at the end of May for two weeks. It will be a golden ale with strong citrus notes, and will be an ideal summer beer: refreshing, crisp, fruity and easy to drink at 4.2% ABV.

The beer will help to publicise a concert which the band are holding, and will also raise money for the band with participating pubs giving 10p per pint sold to them, and with Black Wolf Brewery doing the same. It is hoped that 2,000 pints will be sold, raising £400 for the band.

Black Wolf Pipe BandThe band’s anniversary concert will be held on Saturday, June 6, at St Stephen’s Centre on St Stephen Street, Stockbridge. The concert will bring a range of piping-based musicians together, including pipers from the ten times grade one world champions, Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band, and students from the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow. In addition, both Stockbridge Pipe Band and the affiliated Davidson’s Mains Pipe Band will perform at the event. Tickets cost £8 for adults, and as part of the band’s wider community initiative, tickets for under-16s are free.

Euan Whitmore, pipe major of Stockbridge Pipe Band, said: “I am proud to be leading the band in their 20th anniversary year, and we want to do something unique to mark the occasion. Playing in a pipe band is thirsty work and so a new beer is a fitting way of celebrating our anniversary.

“I am sure the beer will be a big success in raising money for the band and publicising our concert, and I would like to thank the bars for their support.”

Andrew Richardson, director of Black Wolf Brewery, added: “As a thirsty member of the band and a director of a brewery, it was easy to put two and two together to produce a beer for the band. We are looking forward to sampling our own beer in the pubs which have supported the band by stocking the beer.”

Participating bars are: Kays Bar, Clarks Bar, The Antiquary, The Bon Vivant, The Raeburn Bar, The Cambridge Bar, The Cumberland Bar, Milne’s Bar, The Bailie, The Scran & Scallie, St Vincent, Sandy Bells, The Royal Oak and the Athletic Arms.

BrewDog has launched an 8.5% ABV Imperial IPA, Born to Die. Featuring a best before date of July 4, 2015, Born to Die is a self-styled “terminally hoppy IPA”, deliberately brewed to be consumed within a very limited timeframe.

BrewDog Born To DieBrewDog is encouraging those who purchase the beer to adhere to the recommended best before date in order to experience the beer at its flavourful and aromatic peak.

The brewer will release two batches of Born to Die this year, each having its best before date included in the name on the label.

Compared with other BrewDog IPAs, Born to Die is more heavily whirlpool and dry-hopped, resulting in an increased pick-up of volatile hop oils that are responsible for the intense taste and nose of the beer. With time, these essential oils lose their volatility, with noticeable effects on the taste of the brew/

Born to Die 04.07.2015 will be available in kegs and 660ml bomber bottles. The beer will be removed from sale after July 4 if any still remain unsold.

BrewDog co-founder, James Watt, said: “One of the many beautiful things about beer is the ability to constantly experiment with the core ingredients of hops, water, malt and yeast to yield varied and wondrous brews. We’ve been doing this since we started in a garage eight years ago and this spirit of adventure and inquisitiveness has never left us.

“With Born to Die, we’ve been inspired by the ‘Enjoy By…’ IPA series from Stone, which we absolutely loved. With Greg Koch’s blessing, we put our spin on the concept and Born to Die was… born.”

Two Cocks bottlesNorth Bar & Kitchen in Leicester has become the county’s exclusive stockist of Two Cocks – a range of Berkshire microbrewery beers.

The beers produced by Two Cocks have won nine awards in the two years since their launch, and gained plaudits from none other than Raymond Blanc. Served in beautifully designed bottles (complete with coloured feather) and accompanying glasses etched with the feather motif, Two Cocks provides a range of beers brewed on its farm in Berkshire.

Brewery owner Michael Butcher said: “We were thrilled to be a tiny part of the launch of North Bar and Kitchen by supplying it with our beer. We knew it would be a fabulous new venue for Leicester, so we are happy to be involved. North Bar and Kitchen is the only place in Leicester to stock our beers and will be for the foreseeable future.”

North Bar & Kitchen owner Sally Davis said: “We fought hard to have Two Cocks stocked at North — it’s a great tasting range of beers with immaculate styling, and we felt it fitted perfectly with the ethos and customer base of North. We are proud to be the only stockists in the county.”

Such has been the demand for the beer that North has had to increase orders and is now stocking a third brand in the range. The beers are: the glamorous Diamond Lil (3.2% ABV, with a red feather), Viscount 5.6% (with a two-tone feather), and Roundhead 4.2% (with a blonde feather).

To celebrate and to accommodate for increasing demand, North Bar & Kitchen will now be open Sunday evenings until 11pm, for drinks only.

Since it opened in February, North Bar & Kitchen has quickly become an established part of the West End social scene with Friday &Saturday nights and Sunday lunches fully booked in the restaurant. Sally Davis said: “We would like to thank everyone for accepting North so quickly — the feedback has been amazing, and now we can see what our customers are loving we are expanding our drinks offer to match. Watch out for our cheese and wine evening, and gin and rum boards, coming soon.”

Batemans has brewed a rich, ruby beer to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta.

The brewer’s home county of Lincolnshire plays an important role in the story of the historic document and is home to one of only four surviving original copies. Named Law of the Land and available in bottle, the 5.5% ABV beer has been brewed with sweet English barley and spicy Minstrel hops to give a balanced taste.

Batemans Law of the LandBatemans has teamed up with with Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) and East Lindsey District Council (ELDC) to officially create this new beer for the anniversary celebrations. It was launched at an exclusive event held in the women’s prison at the newly renovated Lincoln Castle, where Lincoln Cathedral’s copy of the document is now housed in the new David PJ Ross Magna Carta Vault.

Law of the Land is a rich and opulent old-style beer, brewed specially to be a modern-day representation of the type of ale that would have been enjoyed by the barons who created Magna Carta. It is indulgent, characterful and luxurious, says Batemans, with hints of berries and fruits to enhance the traditional flavour. The use of Minstrel hops is also deliberate, as they feature some characteristics of hops of that time.

Stuart Bateman, managing director of Batemans, said: “We’re incredibly excited to have produced this limited edition bottle beer in partnership with LCC and ELDC as part of the Magna Carta celebrations. The beer is vibrant and gives a real sense of occasion. Bursting with richness, it is a very befitting tribute to the rebelliousness of the barons to which we owe so much.

“Magna Carta is a hugely important part of our history that still impacts us today, so what better way to mark this milestone than by raising a glass of Law of the Land beer!”

Councillor Colin Davie, executive councillor, economic development, environment, planning, tourism for LCC, said: “What better partner for the newly revamped Lincoln Castle than the county’s top brewer? It’s great to see Batemans becoming involved with such an important celebration not just for Lincolnshire, but on a national level.”will welcome to Lincolnshire are part of the celebrations.”

Law of the Land will be available to buy in 330ml bottles from the Batemans Visitor Centre and online store, as well as Lincoln Castle and Lincolnshire Co-op stores. It is the perfect beer to enjoy during the national Cheers to Beer event, taking place at 12.15pm on Beer Day Britain, June 15. At that time, people are encouraged to go to the pub, bar or have a bottle of beer at work or home and raise a glass to British beer and Magna Carta. The time of 12.15pm relates to the year the great charter was sealed.

Shetland’s Lerwick Brewery, brewer of Great Taste award-winning 60°North, has launched a new beer — Lerwick IPA. It is the brewery’s first cask brew and marks its entry into the real ale market.

Brewery manager, Rhanna Turberville, said: “We’ve had great acclaim for all our brews to date and are excited about launching our cask offering. IPA is such an iconic brew that it’s the natural choice to add to our portfolio.

Lerwick IPA“The star of the show in any IPA is the hops, and for Lerwick IPA we’ve used only American hops, with a blend of malts, to give it a distinctive colour and flavour. Our IPA gives the drinker a big, hoppy hit from the Cascade hops and, whilst the light effervescence and 5% ABV enhances the sweet malt characters, it complements the bitter finish to give a well-balanced, refreshing beer.

“Shetland’s unique northern location plays an important role in producing our ales. The clear, crisp air and the rich and plentiful water supply are key to giving our cask conditioned beers that quality finish which is hard to replicate.”

Isla Mercer, sales and marketing manager, added: “Entering the cask and real ale market is a really exciting proposition for the brewery. We will be launching our cask ales with a nice hoppy IPA, but have lots more recipes in development for future releases in the upcoming months.

“We’ve had a lot of interest from bars and pubs for cask ales and we’re looking forward to be able to provide these alongside our current range.”

The IPA launch sees Lerwick Brewery also launch a new style of branding for its cask collection. Isla said: “The new branding is very contemporary and eye catching. The pony will have a different design for every style of cask beer we release. We’ve had so many people telling us they love the pony so we wanted to feature it more prominently.”

Lerwick Brewery continues to brew and grow its bottled beer range. “60° North, Skipper’s Ticket and Tushkar are all doing well, with demand growing across the UK,” said Isla. “Our cask business will complement our bottled beer range, whilst giving something different to pubs and bars. We’re very excited about this move.”

Avalon GardenPicture: Beer Garden Co

The beer garden at south west London pub The Avalon re-opens this week following a major eight-week renovation.

The Clapham pub is the largest of the seven pubs owned by Three Cheers Pub Co. which was set up in 2003 by childhood friends Tom Peake, Mark Reynolds and Nick Fox. The newly renovated outside space can seat up to 180 people, and a further 70 standing.

The founders worked closely with Beer Garden Co’s Ross Clarke to create a garden offering flexible outdoor rooms for dining, gathering and relaxing.

Tom Peake said: “The Avalon’s garden created waves when it first opened, and has always been a very popular space. After seven years it was in need of a revamp. We really wanted to take it up a level and create a truly beautiful garden with a proper bar and kitchen and lots of different areas for drinkers, diners and parties. There simply aren’t that many pub or restaurant gardens like this in London.”

The materials chosen for the project focus on native-grown wood and industrial metal, set against the urban backdrop of mature trees and London brick. Guests enter the garden through a discreet door at the back of the pub, and walk through a ‘green’ corridor which opens up into the main pub garden.

Customers can gather around old distillery oak barrels or take a seat at colourful, moveable furniture. A striking ten-metre wide living wall is planted with a range of species including Sarcacocca, Bergenia, Lily-turf, Helleborus niger, ferns and ivy. This part of the garden features a fully-stocked bar serving draught beer, including Three Cheers Summer Pale Ale, wine and cocktails, and an outdoor kitchen with a Josper grill and roasting spit.

Guests can order from the bar and garden menu, and private parties can choose from the courtyard barbecue menu, which includes: steaks, burgers, and skewers, such as Cajun chicken and sweet chilli sauce; yogurt and cumin glazed lamb; and teriyaki salmon, scallion and lime aioli.

Ross Clarke said: “This is a very exciting project for us, as it’s the first garden under our new name. It typifies everything we stand for. Everything about the garden is bespoke. We use locally sourced materials from sustainable, managed woodlands in Dorset, and turn them into something beautiful.”

The garden is open until 10pm each day, after which time guests will be asked to move inside to minimise disruption to neighbours. Heaters are dotted through the garden for warmth, and decorative lighting and candlelight add to the ambience.

Robinsons Flying CoachRobinsons Brewery has announced the re-opening of the much loved Hazel Grove pub the Cock Hotel under the new name of the Flying Coach.

Tony Massey, business development manager for Robinsons Brewery, said: “The Cock has always been one of our most popular pubs so it was never a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’ we would re-open it. After several months of discussions with the brewery design team and the influence of several of our other high-profile refurbishments in the area, we decided on a new vision that would carry the pub into its next era.”

Inspired by the success of the Bakers Vaults and The Blossoms in Stockport, the London Road pub has been reborn as the Flying Coach — a ‘beer shrine’ that will offer an extensive range of international craft beers and a rotating range of Robinsons’ award-winning cask ales and guest beers from the bar’s six new handpulls.

Robinsons’ in-house design team worked around the clock with a design that maintained the historic atmosphere of the pub. Internally, the traditional rooms remain with select walls removed to open the snug and lounge areas up to allow a clear view from the front to the rear.

Areas of the pub have been tastefully decorated using a palette of blues and subtle grey tones. The design also incorporates several talking points, including old elixir bottles, hand-painted versions of the Flying Coach’s new logo and a wall of loom shuttles — a nod Stockport’s rich textile history.

Robinsons’ trademark copper signage adorns the front of the pub whilst the pub’s Tudor style architecture has received a neutral paint scheme. At the rear of the pub lies a new decking area and planting scheme which will undoubtedly become a welcome addition during the summer.

Along with an impressive beer range and stunning new look, the Flying Coach has developed a simple bar menu made up of hearty English comfort food, including a traditional ploughman’s, rustic sandwiches, hand cut chips served in tankards or posh cheese on toast served on rough cut slices of bloomer bread.

New Inn NewportJoule’s Brewery is to open a new Shropshire Tap House, the New Inn, in Newport, on June 3.

Over the past few months a team of dedicated Joule’s craftsmen have been carefully restoring the the New Inn, to encapsulate everything that is great about the English pub, with a contemporary twist.

Coupling freshly prepared home-cooked favourites with a high-quality bar offering, Joule’s aims to deliver the magic that can be seen throughout the rest of its tap estate across Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire.

The New Inn development allows for a full catering kitchen and extension. It will still be an old fashioned inn at its heart, but will also offer the best in pub classics — simple food that is well done. Like the brewery in Market Drayton, it will source locally, and cook from fresh.

The Tap House will be showcasing Joule’s range of ales, of course, including Pale Ale, Blonde and Slumbering Monk. There will also be Joule’s craft lager, Green Monkey, alongside, the brewery’s first craft seasonal beer, Buffalo, an American Pale Ale.

Trudie Meredith, marketing controller at Joule’s, said:”We have received an astonishing amount of interest and excitement from locals with lovely memories and stories … and with the help of social media, we have received lots of old photographs and memorabilia relating the pub and its fascinating journey.

“Last month, we agreed an exciting sponsorship with local cycle club, Nova Raiders, and they have already got plans to make it their regular stop off.”

Landlord, Darren Wood, added: “As someone who has lived in the area my entire life, I am naturally delighted to be in a position to bring amazing cask ales and fine food to the centre of Newport. Our head chef, Carl Stephenson, and his team are very much looking forward to providing the town’s community with a fine range of freshly produced, locally sourced food.

“The New Inn will create in the region of ten jobs for local people — this is something that we are all very excited about.”

The pub will be part of a Tap Estate of 20 beautifully restored Joule’s houses across the brewery’s heartland.

Beany GreenPopular Aussie independent coffee venue Beany Green has teamed up with Fourpure brewery to bring unique craft beers to the Southbank in London.

Launching this bank holiday weekend, the new craft beer offering will include some signature brews only usually available at Fourpure’s Tap Room in nearby Bermondsey.

Fourpure Beany GreenBeany Green’s famous shipping container, situated at Hungerford Bridge and right outside the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, is the perfect spot for soaking up the sunny vibe of London’s Southbank while enjoying stunning locally brewed beer.

Looking out on the River Thames, the well-loved pop-up coffee bar, hand-painted by Hastings based street artist, Shuby, was designed to be a piece of living art. Bright-coloured banana motif deckchairs and faux grass surround the secret hangout.

Brewed within walking distance of the Southbank Centre, Fourpure craft beers on offer at Beany Green will include a delicious crisp and refreshing Pils lager, alongside fantastic hoppy pale ale and IPAs. Seasonal and one-off brews will make up the balance of the beer lineup, and will change on a weekly basis.

Fourpure is hosting a tap takeover at the Rake, Southwark,London, tonight (Wednesday), from 5pm. The beer list includes West Coast Saison, French Farmhouse (Roux 15) and Pilsner. There will be raffles to win Fourpure goodies,too!

To kick off the long weekend, this season’s special West Coast Saison will take pride of place — an intriguing marriage of classically complex Belgian saison aromas of bright citrus and black pepper with bold, exciting, West Coast-style American hopping. An Aussie inspired mango and passion fruit pale ale will also feature in the near future, as well as an exclusive coffee stout brewed with the same secret house blend espresso as Beany Green’s perfectly executed flat whites — hand-roasted by fellow Aussies The Roasting Party, a Winchester-based small batch roasters.
