The third instalment of the UK’s annual hop-led beer festival, Hop City, is here.
Taking place in Leeds from 18th-20th April 2019, some of the best brewers from around the world are bringing their hoppiest, juiciest brews for you!
Whiplash and The Big Romance have just announced the Irish beer event of Summer. Taking place on 13th July, Fidelity sees Whiplash bring some of their favourite brewers from around the world to the Mansion House, Dublin to celebrate the imminent opening of their own brewery.
This is REALLY REALLY EXCITING. Not just because we love Whiplash and we’re hyped for their brewery opening but because they’ve assembled a ridiculously good line-up of breweries for this beer bash including Other Half, Mikkeller, J Wakefield, Lervig, Northern Monk, Garage, Deya and Wylam to name a few.
ROOOOOOOOOAR. No wait, not that kind of Lion. Huddersfield’s Magic Rock Brewing Co have been acquired by Lion, one of Australasia’s largest food and beverage companies, which is a subsidiary of Japanese drinks giant Kirin.
Magic Rock was formed in 2011 by Richard Burhouse in an old out-building of the family business in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. Since then, they’ve grown to produce roughly 2.7 million pints of beer per year, sold all over the UK and exported to more than 25 countries worldwide. READ MORE
