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 [...]

We love great beer and live music at Offbeat #Crewe so on Good Friday (14th) we’re open from noon to 10pm with music coming to us from Damien Russell.  Damien’s played here a few times before over the years and I’ve no hesitation in getting him back.  You can check him out here on Facebook.

#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. [...]

On the taps tonight with Turbo Hop Twister

March 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

Ever since I first heard about the Dogfish Head Randall the Enamel Animal I’ve wanted one – you can read all about it here, it’s now in it’s third version.  At the time I was brewing at Windie Goat Brewery at the Failford Inn up in the west of Scotland and we tried to make our own, it wasn’t a huge success, with the pull from a hand pump it just foamed up and made one hell of a mess! For those of you who’ve been attending #FirstyFriday for a while [...]

Lupy Lager Brewday

March 21, 2017 // 0 Comments

A friend in Scotland shared the attached snow photo while we’re basking in glorious sunshine in #Crewe.  I was flipping a coin as to whether to brew up some Out Of The Ordinary Stout or Lupy Lager today and I’ve gone with our hopped up lager because it’s all about the cool fermentation and maturation.  If the cold weather is coming our way then might as well work with what we’ve got!  Expect to see it out and about in cask and keg. (The Out Of The Ordinary Stout [...]

Friday 17th March

March 17, 2017 // 2 Comments

First up, a quick apology to the customers who were in last night! I was in full on zombie mode, diabetes and insomnia coupled with some crazy stress made me a bit of a disaster zone where everything I looked at broke! So apologies and hope I didn’t scare anyone off! Back to it, I’ve been asked a couple of times if we are doing anything for St Patrick’s today.  We’ve got the bar open as usual 5pm to 10pm with half a dozen beers on, cider, wine and the ever growing [...]

So much of what I love

March 14, 2017 // 0 Comments

So much of what I love about brewing is the people. I’ve been brewing about 10 years now and although the beer world changes, the people stay the same.  Newcomers are welcomed, beer is drunk, success celebrated, advice freely given, disasters commiserated with help and solutions offered.  I’ve been in situations where I’ve run out of an item and half a dozen people offer to loan, I’ve had the brewery kit breakdown and people offer to let me brew on their site, [...]

#IWCBD part 2

March 12, 2017 // 0 Comments

On Wednesday Michelle from @LiverpoolCask and I mashed in for the #IWCBD International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day with #ThereSheGose.  Today there’s just this one Michelle back in to do the second part of the brew now our wort has dropped its acidity level and is souring nicely.  Long, slow day waiting for the kettle to boil before adding lime zest and salt for a Margarita finish. There She Gose seemed the best name for a this salty sour Gose style brewed on International [...]
