AB:10 draft launch & BrewDog Edinburgh's Alternative Beer Festival
cool stuff, this weekend, in BrewDog bars
Loads of things to get excited about:
Thing 1 - Saturday 30th June - All BrewDog Bars
On Saturday the 30th June, nationwide, BrewDog Bars open our taps to the decadent delight of our latest Abstrakt release, AB:10.
Our Abstrakt beers always involve a little bit of BrewDog Anarchy, they are only ever brewed and released once, making them some of the most illustrious and sought after beers on the planet. In this ground breaking set we have seen the likes of; vanilla bean, raspberries and strawberries, cacao, naga chillies, toasted coconut, heather honey and oatmeal to name just a few.
This Abstrakt, the tenth in our series, sees an epic 11.5% Imperial Brown Ale, aged in massive, sweet red wine barrels from Malaga. This aging process ensures the robust imperial brown ale picks up the depth of flavour from the red wine, and the oak from the barrels.
AB:10 will be launching in all seven of our Craft Beer Bars at 5pm sharp this Saturday. Each bar only has one 30L keg. Ensure your spot at the bar, you do not want to miss out on tasting this beauty. The AB:10 bottles will be launching online around the 10th of July.
Brewing with Sir Tom Hunter
Also on Saturday night, all the bars will launch our new Hunter Foundation Pale Ale. This is a beer we made with Sir Tom Hunter (of the Hunter Foundation) and every pint that we sell, we will donate £2 to the foundation. The Hunter Foundation aims to eradicate poverty and enable education. Sir Tom is also one of the UK's most succesful and well know buiness figures. We will also see the return of Chaos Theory to our taps. This Hoppy badass of a beer, will sting your taste buds and leave you gasping for more, hurry though, we only have 1 keg per bar, when it’s gone, it’s gone! Don’t miss your chance!
Thing 2 - Edinburgh's Alternative Beer Festival - 29th, 30th June & 1st July
This weekend BrewDog Edinburgh is holding its own Alternative Beer Festival with a 3 day Tap Takeover from UK Breweries.
While the beards and sandals crowd are over at the Scottish Real Ale Festival enjoying 300 different variations on a flat warm Bitter, come down to BrewDog Edinburgh and experience the future of the British Beer scene.
We have 17 different beers from 7 of the leading British Breweries and with 6 Guest taps running over 3 days there will be plenty to choose from. We're not going to give away which beers will be pouring just yet but expect to see some special treats from the following superstars:
The Kernel Tempest Summer Wine Magic Rock Brodies Redchurch Lovibonds
As if that wasn't enough, at 5pm on Saturday we will be launching Abstrakt 10, an Imperial Brown Ale aged in Malaga Wine Barrels.
We're thrilled at the prospect of being able to showcase so much that's great about modern British Beer. If you're even half as excited as we are, you'll be flooding down here in your droves.
Join us from the 29th June. BrewDog Edinburgh Team xxx
