Tap7 #SummerOfBeer

For the hop heads visiting our bar in the #SummerOfBeer, tap 7 has been the one to look out for. It's hosted the fabulous Catatonic collaboration from Salopian and Tiny Rebel, Magic Rock's High Wire Grapefruit, Burning Sky's Easy Answers amongst others. So we had to find something new and stumbled across this from Little…

#SummerOfBeer Saturday

After a rather fabulous #FirstyFriday we open today 2pm to 10pm. We had a couple of beer changes last night; the lager tap has changed to Cheshire Brewhouse’s Dane’ish and the Notting Hill Amber is almost gone and will be replaced with o’Haras Irish Stout. Looks like I’ll be going beer shopping again this week!…

Saturday shenanigans 

So it’s another #SummerOfBeer Saturday but it’s also the day we hopefully get the brewery back together.  The plan is still to be open 2pm to 10pm but there may be odd curses coming from the work crew as they get things sorted! Despite the torrential rain it was another great, busy evening yesterday with…

End of Day 3

Here’s the aerial view of the finished plinth, looks the business and can’t wait to get back to brewing.  Brain is already ticking over on a couple of new recipes… As it stands the beer and cider lines for the main bar are all cleaned and connected up, we’re aiming to get the second bar…

And so it begins

If you’ve been following our drain plight, crowdfunding on @Indiegogo then here’s the latest news. We raised over £1000 towards the £7000 repair bill very quickly in the first week.  I’ve not been plugging our fundraising efforts so much with all the #SummerOfBeer shenanigans going on but every tiny donation is a huge help to…

Welcoming Gary Hall

Our first full weekend of #SummerOfBeer was a huge success, great crowd of people for #FirstyFriday, a lot of new faces and some who think haven’t missed a night since we started! This week we welcome Gary Hall on site on Friday, he’s new here and we’re really looking forward to hearing him.  He’s had…

Bar Opening Hours this week

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…

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…

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 –…
