Moor on Tour – Leicester

The first Leicester Beer Week is on, and Moor Beer are so excited to be involved! The only trouble they’ve found was that Leicester has some amazing pubs and we wanted to visit all of them – so they decided to bring back #moorontour ( yes it does sound like that.. )

They would love it if you joined them as they take in some of the best pubs in the city and as you walk from place to place you will get to hear their very own George wax lyrical about all things Moor and beer and try a different beer in each pub!

The plan?
As this is also #caskaleweek you are going to be having a lot of awesome cask, but as they won the accreditation from CAMRA for Real Ale in Cans they will also be taking in some nano casks (not a half cask but a 330ml cask – venting times vary…)

They will be starting at West End Brewery at 6:30 were they are hosting an all-female brewed draught Tap Takeover and you will try through some cans (did someone say road beers?!) Then you will saunter (or however you like to perambulate) to Head of Steam Leicester where you will be getting all casked up! From there it is only a short stroll to Broood for a blind tasting event – they have entered 1 beer so double points to whoever manages to guess which is ours – They are really looking forward to this one/ looking forward to embarrassing themselves by not picking theirs out! You will then wander jauntily to The Blue Boar to carry on the cask theme before heading back to The Two-Tailed Lion for some good times!

Updates will be posted on their social media so keep watching this event and Instagram stories to find out where they are and what we are up to!

Leicester Beer Week Day 7

Well, its been a great week so far with some great events, we’re heading toward the final weekend but there are some great events still to go. Tonight we have these for your Beery Pleasure;

Check out our Facebook Page for full details.

Cloudwater Event at The Two-Tailed Lion

Last Nights Cloudwater Event, hosted by Matt and Alice, at the Two-Tailed Lion was a great success. A packed house got to sample six of Cloudwaters amazing beers including a few very limited Bottled Beers, some were from the last cases in existence and learn how they were brewed and fermented.

A great evening of Beer and Banter was had by all and we even got to learn about two new Micropubs opening in Leicestershire.

The Two-Tailed Lion also has a Mount Saint Bernard Abbey Meet the Brewer event on Saturday 22nd and a Moor Beer event on Thursday 27th, there are tickets available for both events, so make sure you grab one to avoid disappointment.

All of the planning is finally over and Leicester Beer Week is here.  For the next day join us in Celebrating all Styles and Types of Beer at some of the wonderful Venues around this great City of ours.

Breweries Supporting Leicester Beer Week 2018

The decision to host Leicester Beer Week was only taken in May of this year so it has been a bit of a rush to organise everything.

A lot of breweries have been contacted and so far we have had support from the following;

  • Brew Dog
  • Cloudwater Brew Co
  • Everards Brewery
  • Framework
  • Hoskins Brothers
  • Langton
  • Market Bosworth
  • Moor Beer
  • West End

Without the Support of these and the great Venues around the City we would not have been in a position to put the event on, so a big thanks to all of them and please make sure you give them your support in return.

We are still in the process of building the Website but check out our Breweries page over the coming few days as we add full details of them all.

Framework to Brew a LBW Special and you can see it Happen.

Look, it’s not quite Leicester Beer Week yet but the Folk at Framework Brewery simply cannot wait, so to kick it all off they are opening their Doors tomorrow to anyone who is interested in seeing how they do what they do as they’re having their very first Open Brew Day!
But this is your chance to see a special beer being brewed that will then be available around the city during the actual beer week.
They’ll be free to chat to and answer questions and they’ll even tap a couple of pins so their super fresh beer will be available on the day. CARDS ACCEPTED!

Mashing in at 11:30am but don’t feel like you have to be there for the whole day – just come and go as you like! They hope to see you down there.
