It would be stating the obvious

June 20, 2017 // 0 Comments

to point out that it’s rather hot right now!   Keep promising myself I’ll keep the blog more up to date so here’s a bit of a long post… We’re having a couple of problems here with flooding at the brewery, the drain is leaking again and unfortunately going through the wall to the unit behind.  It’s a bit of a stressful time as you can imagine but we’re looking at getting it fixed properly rather than patching it up so we’re in the process [...]

Busy week ahead

June 5, 2017 // 0 Comments

At a quick tot up I’ve got 3 back to back brews to do, a load of bottles to get out for the first of this year’s Hoppiest Days weddings, the next set of wedding bottles to get labelled up and then get the bar open and ship shape for Thursday and Friday evenings. I’m hoping to get to Manchester to help at the Hops Not Hate event on Friday but the bar here will be open, beers pouring and gins being mixed! Michelle [...]

Beer Flight Launch Competition

May 3, 2017 // 0 Comments

The longest recorded flight for a chicken is 13 seconds, our beer flights should hopefully last longer with some tasting and savouring going on.  We’ve had these custom made to hold 4 third pint glasses so you can peruse the cask, keg and cider taps and take your pick giving you the opportunity for a greater variety with less quantity.   To launch these in the bar we’re having a little competition thing going on.  Let me know on Facebook or Twitter who you would like [...]

If you build it they will come 

April 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

I’m afraid the Offbeat bar is closed on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th April because we’re at Berries, Beans & Beer and there’s no bars or furniture left at the brewery! We really hope you’ll join us over the road at the Crewe Heritage Centre on Friday (5pm to 11pm £7), Saturday (11am to 11pm £7) and Sunday (11am to 6pm £5).  All tickets include £4 drink tokens plus we’ve our “Talks on the Train” where you can meet brewers, distillers and [...]

It’s soooo easy, grab a @SwipiiCard on the bar, tap the “Press Here” on the bright orange clad iPad, stick your email address in and that’s pretty much it.  You’ll get an email through from Swipii that you need to click to confirm your email address and then every time you make a purchase at the bar you can scan your card and collect the points.  We’re really transparent with the pricing here as it is, we believe you should be able to see what you’re [...]

#FirstyFriday rolling back in

April 4, 2017 // 0 Comments

It’s almost here, my favourite day of the month, #FirstyFriday (despite the chaos caused getting it ready!).  We’re setting up the beers, cleaning the lines, sorting the cooling and all the other little jobs that go into getting this place ship shape.  The beer list is just below.  Don’t forget if you want a quieter night we are also open Thursdays 5 to 10pm. We’re stocking up on the lovely focaccias from Bread in Common and a load of cheese from Godfrey C [...]

Free beer!

March 28, 2017 // 0 Comments

As it’s #craftbeerhour it seems a good time to invite you over to have a free third of #ThereSheGose this Thursday and Friday (5 – 10pm). As a brewery of one person there’s only one set of tastebuds to tease so there’s a need for some feedback and opinions on this new Margarita of a beer.  Salty, sweet, sour, lime, orange and a handful of hops on keg this week. The only clause (besides being over 18) is you have to fill in a little, anonymous tasting card. [...]
