Hoppy Birthday Tate Modern

Hoppy Birthday Tate Modern

World famous contemporary art gallery Tate Modern celebrates its 10th Birthday on the banks of the Thames this week. In true Tate Modern style they’ve shunned the Champagne and instead will be toasting the decade with a drop of the Dog.

Tate Beer

BrewDog  have created an exclusive special release beer to mark the occasion. A 5.6  Blonde Belgian Saison brewed with spices and infused with vanilla beans. This deliciously complex beer is best served in a former Power Station–turned Art Gallery amidst a gaggle of partying Art lovers.

A beer for such an aesthetically tuned audience needed to look the part, so Bracken commissioned BrewDog’s on-call designer Johanna Basford to create a hand printed label. Available in both black on white and white on black, she spent a week in her studio silk screen printing all the labels for the 375ml corked champagne bottles and a handful of posters. Beer inspired art, for art inspired beer.

Just 4,000 bottles of this artistic birthday brew were created and they are available exclusively from Tate Modern. We've also sent down a few kegs, as we all know every good party involves a keg from a canine. Get your paws on some by heading down there from May the 14th … don’t forget your party hat.

**UPDATE** Get your paws on the kegged Tate Modern beer exclusively at The Rake, Borough Market.

Had the last of the keg version in The Rake yesterday after buying a few bottles from Tate Modern gift shop. There were still about 8 bottles in the gift shop if anyone is planning on heading there.
Alan 19.05.2010 @ 12:33pm
£3.50 for carling is overpriced. You should be compensated for being poisoned. :)
JH 18.05.2010 @ 8:24pm
Had a half of this at the Rake today - absolutely lovely, really flavourful beer - hats off to the brewer. £2.40 though for a half pint. I'm more than willing to pay more for craft beer but can £4.80 a pint be justified? Granted a pint of carling will set me back £3.50 in that part of london, but still...What do others think?
Andy Watson 17.05.2010 @ 2:19pm
Stupot- you sir are a legend. Just left tate modern with brewdog! For anyone planning to head here, the shop has just restocked with about twelve bottles and bar on level 7 chap i bought from just went and got two more cases.
stupot 17.05.2010 @ 1:01pm
Andy - went back at lunchtime and ventured upto the 7th floor bar. They have it and gladly sold me 4 bottles and didnt open them. No bags up there though, so take your own unless you want very coldhands. Brrrr..
Andy Watson 17.05.2010 @ 11:34am
@Stupot- Gutted too but thanks for saving me a wasted journey at lunchtime. Might have to see if the Rake has some on tap left over this evening after being taunted about it on Saturday evening.
Stupot 17.05.2010 @ 10:35am
Just been to the gift shop. Couldnt see it in there :-( Gutted.
David Scott 16.05.2010 @ 11:02am
The draught tastes awesome, but The Rake said it probably won't last until next weekend - get there soon. The bar at the Tate will sell them unopened.
tim 15.05.2010 @ 3:45pm
oh, and if you can make it to the Rake, I'd REALLY recommend having it on tap- it's beautiful stuff.
tim 15.05.2010 @ 10:57am
Chunk- i went there yesterday and they were £3.95 a bottle- quite reasonable I thought! You'll find them in the gift shop at the bottom by the turbine hall.
Chunk 14.05.2010 @ 4:17pm
Any idea how much the bottles will cost from the TM?
Bracken 13.05.2010 @ 12:58pm
Kegs of Tate Modern Birthday Beer have also made their way to The Rake at Borough Market. Get your paws on a Pint of Art!
Barm 12.05.2010 @ 8:51am
Brilliant news, and in contrast to the opening of the so-called National Brewery Centre the other week where they served champagne to guests in a classic example of beer cringe. Good on the Tate Modern. More of this sort of thing.
Stroober 11.05.2010 @ 3:38pm
Excellent....will check it oot this weekend on the south bank ;-)
Dale 11.05.2010 @ 1:10pm
Looks Great!
tim 11.05.2010 @ 12:55pm
Any idea of the price on these?
craig garvie 11.05.2010 @ 11:55am
Once again Johanna's work adds a touch of class to the bottles. Shame the TM is so far away :-(
Chunk 11.05.2010 @ 11:37am
Might have to head down there the day after and check it out then. :)
Bracken 11.05.2010 @ 11:31am
Chunk: We believe Tate Modern intended to sell bottles for you to take home, but this greatly depends on the volume left over after the party.
Fritz 11.05.2010 @ 10:13am
Classic Design...and great product placement. Spot on.
Chunk 11.05.2010 @ 10:02am
Just noticed the ABV ... not the same as AB01 then, unless it was watered down or something.
Chunk 11.05.2010 @ 10:01am
Do you know if you'll be able to buy to take away or will they open them at the bar and serve it for you there and then?Is it the same wort as AB01, fermented with a Saison yeast?
Laurie Delk 11.05.2010 @ 9:43am
Brilliant. Love it.
