Oakham Ales was one of 155 breweries at this year’s Craft Beer Rising Festival at the historic Truman Brewery in East London and we had an amazing time as always.
What’s not to like when there’s great music, good food, nice people and lots of beautiful beer!
The highlight – literally – of our stand was a our shiny new LED light display that drew huge crowds and must have been one of the most photographed features of the Festival!
Visitors to our stand were also entertained and informed by our brewing director, John Bryan, wearing his white scientist’s coat to reveal some of the science behind the beer and teaching everyone about his favourite subject – the hops that go into our brews!
Kegs on tap included Green Devil IPA and newcomer Brut IPA and we also brought plenty of cask beers this year. Citra, Blue Skies IPA, Hawse Buckler and Dragon in Bavaria were available on cask and visitors also had a chance to sample our new canned range – Best Friend Session IPA, Thrill Seeker New World Pale and Alpha Inception West Coast IPA.
Thanks to everyone who came to see us, tried our beers, rubbed the hops, put on our tattoos and tried on the bear’s (“Best Friend”) mask! We were really happy to have met so many new faces, thanks for all your kind words about the beers and see you all soon again!
