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!
