Our live music every Friday for #SummerOfBeer kicks off with #FirstyFriday (coz it’s the first Friday of the month, one day it’ll catch on!) this week with Poyzer, Fluff and Farrell on stage. We will be open Thursday 5pm – 10pm, Friday noon to 10pm and Saturday 2pm to 10pm.  Poyzer Fluff and Farrell will…

It would be stating the obvious

to point out that it’s rather hot right now!   Keep promising myself I’ll keep the blog more up to date so here’s a bit of a long post… We’re having a couple of problems here with flooding at the brewery, the drain is leaking again and unfortunately going through the wall to the unit…

#FirstyFriday beer list

#FirstyFriday is so close (first Friday of the month), here’s what to look forward to on the taps. CASK It’s all Offbeat light and hoppys with Outlandish Pale 3.9%, Kooky Gold 4.1% and Out Of Step IPA 5.8% CIDER There would be a mutiny if we got rid of the Lilley’s Mango so that’s on…

#FirstyFriday rolling back in

It’s almost here, my favourite day of the month, #FirstyFriday (despite the chaos caused getting it ready!).  We’re setting up the beers, cleaning the lines, sorting the cooling and all the other little jobs that go into getting this place ship shape.  The beer list is just below.  Don’t forget if you want a quieter…

Summer of Beer & Love

1967, the Summer of Love and 50 years later it’s our #SummerOfBeer with more beers, more opening hours and more live music in the chilled out, relaxed environment of the Offbeat Brewery bar. “Avant garde” is one of the terms often used to describe 1967 which is so up our Offbeat street.  We can only…

On the taps tonight with Turbo Hop Twister

Diary dates keep coming in

I’m not from #Crewe (and to be honest I’ve moved round a lot so it’s a long story tracing back where I’m from!) but happy to be here and it’s great to get invited to be involved in community events. We’re obviously a big part of the Berries, Beans & Beer event on 28th –…

The things you learn at/from #FirstyFriday

1. You’ll be amazed what a good night you find yourself having in a small industrial unit in Crewe. 2. With no insulation it’s either hot or cold. Turn the heaters off and everyone freezes, leave them on and the people sat near by are getting cooked to the point of well done. 3. The…

#FirstyFriday 3rd March & Preview Thursday

It’s the first Friday of the month this week so it’s our big open night, #FirstyFriday. The beer list is already up in a brief moment of super organisation here: BEER MENU. There will be cheese boards, crisps and the Weston Biltong beer sticks available if you’re after a snack. Phil Maddocks and Nick Bayes…

Have you been to the Brewery Bar?

Since we moved everything about, the Brewery Bar has become a huge focus of Offbeat.  In January we added some glass doors, new heaters and ‘carpet’ to bring a bit more warmth to this cool, quirky space along with some new tables so between the two rooms there’s a load of seating. There’s always a…
