As we head toward the Start of Leicester Beer Week we’d like to remind everyone to avoid disappointment and check out the Facebook and Website pages for all of our events as some are Ticket Only and must be booked in advance.
There are only twenty Trappist Breweries in the World and only a handful are located outside of Belgium.
Leicestershire is home to the UK’s only certified Trappist Brewery based at Mount Saint Bernard Abbey and we can now reveal that they are Joining us in celebrating Leicester Beer Week and Showcasing their Tynt Meadow Ale.
Watch out for more news on this soon.
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
- Hoskins Brothers
- 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.
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.
This is the New Website for Leicester Beer Week, we’re aiming to be up and running in the next few days.
