Collabageddon is back for a second year!
Last year we had a lot of fun getting together with friends and getting friends together to brew 8 tasty beers which we then launched in 16 bars around the UK on the same night. It was very well received by all involved and of course those who tasted the beers we’d produced!
This year we’ve changed things up and made it bigger! We’ve got together with 9 other breweries, paired them up as we did last year so all 10 breweries are involved in two beers, then worked with 20 fantastic venues to launch the beers on FRIDAY NOVEMBER 16TH.
The aim as before is to help showcase smaller breweries, most of whom are too small to be able to fulfil national distribution, and do so in some of the UK’s top beer destinations.
The brewery pairings were as follows:
Anspach & Hobday v Elusive
Bexar County v Burning Soul
Blackjack v Eight Arch
Burning Soul v Blackjack
Elusive v Pilot
Eight Arch x Bexar County
Hale v Twisted Barrel
Pilot v Hale
Twisted Barrel v Wild Weather
Wild Weather v Anspach & Hobday
And here’s where you’ll need to head!
