The Wednesday Tap

Weds Tap
The Wednesday Tap
Date: 30th November 2017


We are very excited to be working together with Sheffield Wednesday FC in creating The Wednesday Tap

 The Wednesday Tap replaces the Sheridan Suite and will be open seven days a week from 12.00pm to 11.00pm, inclusive of all fixtures at Hillsborough.

The new venture extends the our partnership with Sheffield Wednesday, which was established earlier this season.

The brewery will now host a further range of ales at the Wednesday Tap, which will feature theme nights, quizzes, live football, food offers and more!

Our CEO Simon Webster said: When we started supplying The Wednesday Pale Ale and Owls Session IPA to the club, I think we were all amazed at how strong the sales were.

It got us thinking what else we could do together and the obvious choice was a new pub! We identified the Sheridan Suite as an ideal venue and the Thornbridge and SWFC teams have worked brilliantly together to get this project off the ground and open in time for this weekend.

Sheffield Wednesdays head of catering Rob Cox added: When we launched The Wednesday beer, it was about giving the fans something that was theirs, something unique that they could identify with.

We then felt we needed somewhere our fans could enjoy the new beer, not just the kiosks or the lounges on matchday. So working with Thornbridge, we thought about a pub of our own that can open throughout the week.

With this being our 150th anniversary, the perfect name is The Wednesday Tap - a real pub with real local ales situated in the heart of Hillsborough. We are really excited by the whole concept and we are confident it will be well received by our fans and people of Sheffield alike.

The Wednesday Tap opens it doors for the first time this Saturday, 2 December.

On matchdays, an over 18s only policy will be in operation until after the final whistle.

Parking is available on non-matchdays via Leppings Lane only, with access under the South Stand.

We look forward to seeing you there for a pint!

Mr Smith Goes to Thornbridge to brew his Gose for Waitrose


Thornbridge Brewery, in partnership with Waitrose and Brew UK, has announced the winner of the 2017 Great British Homebrew Challenge - a watermelon-infused beer brewed by digital designer, Josh Smith.

 

The Gose, a German style of beer, is named Mr Smith Gose to... after the well-known 1939 Frank Capra Mr Smith Goes to Washington and made with watermelon juice. It will be available in Waitrose shops from the 13th November.

 

The Great British Homebrew Challenge, now in its fourth year, sets out to find the best home-brewed beer in the country.  The winning recipe, chosen by a panel of experts including Thornbridge Head Brewer, Rob Lovatt, and Waitrose beer buyer, Sarah Hammond, is brewed by Thornbridge and sold at Waitrose shops across the country.

 

This year, the winning beer was brewed by Stoke Newington resident Josh, 32, who has been brewing at home for five years. 

 

The beer was inspired by a watermelon, feta and mint salad recipe I really like. Watermelon works so well with salty flavours and I naturally made the connection to Gose -  a sour and salty beer. I had tried Mello watermelon juice from Waitrose and was impressed by how much flavour it had, so used that in my beer. I’m so excited for Waitrose customers to try it, as I think it’s quite unusual. This beer can be made into Mexican inspired cocktails too, like Michelada, and is also delicious mixed with tequila and lime.

 

Rob Lovatt: Joshs beer really stood out amongst very strong competition in the final judging stage, with the level of quality instantly shining through. We have been brewing quite a few sour beers recently, but not with Watermelon yet, so this will be a very interesting one for us.   

 

Sarah Hammond, Waitrose beer buyer, says: I always look forward to judging on this panel, as the beers created in this country by people in their kitchens and sheds are always so innovative and fun. This beer is no exception and is the first watermelon beer we’ve launched.

Fullers and Friends Collaboration

Fullers and Friends Collaboration
Date: 26th September 2017


Fullers and Friends sees Fullers team up with Cloudwater Brew Company, Fourpure Brewing Company, Hardknott Brewery, Marble Beers Limited, Moor Beer Company and Thornbridge Brewery to create six new collaboration beers packaged together that will be exclusive to Waitrose within the grocery market.

 

With a different Fullers brewer working with each brewery, these collaboration beers are certainly varied. The six pack includes a dry-hopped lager with Fourpure, a New Zealand Saison with Marble, a red rye ale with Thornbridge, a New England IPA with Cloudwater, a smoked Porter with Hardknott and a homage to Extra Special Bitter with Moor Beer. Each beer has been brewed at Fullers Brewery in Chiswick. Six members of the Fullers brewing team have been partnered up with each brewer and together have created new recipes, worked through the whole brewing process from beginning to end, designed the artwork for the bottle labels and given it a name.

 

Our beer is Flora and the Griffin, a 7% Red Rye Ale. This punchy red ale is made with a diverse range of ingredients including spicy rye malt and bold, floral American hops. Made in collaboration with Derbyshire’s Thornbridge, it’s named after the symbols of both breweries, Flora and The Griffin.

 

John Keeling, Fullers Global Ambassador, said “It has been a privilege to be able to welcome these six brewers to Fuller’s home to create these new beers. I have always enjoyed doing collaborations and to extend this to include brewers from other breweries all over the country seemed like it would be such fun for everyone.

 

“Collaborating on beers is much more effective when meeting a brewer face to face. Collaboration is not just about agreeing a recipe then brewing a beer, it is a great way to make friends. So Georgina and I asked Rob at Thornbridge, Dave at Hardknott, Dan at Fourpure, Justin at Moor, James at Cloudwater and JK at Marble, all of whom I knew, some I had already brewed with but all were friends, to get involved. What better way to get the team at Fuller’s to experience the full meaning of collaboration than for them to work with these great brewers?

 

Fullers and Friends mixed six pack will be exclusive to exclusive to Waitrose within the grocery market and will be available later this year in time for Christmas.
