Beer lovers, this is the plan you’ve been waiting for.
Ask any Londoner what the first thing they want to do when lockdown is over, and nine times out of ten they’ll scream “PUUUUB!” in your face, like some kind of crazed monkey. There’s truly nothing quite like taking a sip of your third pint at the pub, surrounded by people you love (or at least tolerate)—but we think this online beer tasting experience comes pretty close.
You may not be able to leave your house to head to your local just yet, but what if the pub came to you? Like, to your sofa? It doesn’t get any more local than that. We’ve teamed up with brilliant Hackney brewery The Five Points Brewing Co, who will be choosing excellent beers from amongst their leading craft beers and delivering them to your door.
But this is more than just a beer delivery service. With this online craft beer experience, you’ll also get an hour-long tasting session with James Kellow (an Accredited Beer Sommelier) and fellow craft beer enthusiasts. The session takes place on July 10, and is perfect for those looking to try something new during the UK lockdown.
The weekly event will champion a new independent brewery every week, which means there’ll be a new set of beers each time. So, transform your living room into the pub and we’ll provide the booze (and the winning conversation!) until you can be reunited with your favourite watering hole.
There are three ticket types to choose from, depending on the size of your party (2, 4 or 8*). The next event takes place on Friday July 10, from 7:30pm. Book your place now to allow time for that all-important delivery to arrive! Tickets are on sale now, and sales close Tuesday July 7 at 9pm.
