Craft Beer Rising
21 Mar 2018
At the end of last month we were down in London for Craft Beer Rising and the atmosphere was amazing. Since its launch 6 years ago CBR has built a solid reputation as the launchpad for exciting new brews, innovations in the brewing industry and the chance to meet the faces behind the beers.
We had our core range pouring and it was our first UK event launching our new Blood Red Sky which was the clear favourite from the weekend, with brilliant feedback on the smooth taste and full flavour. Our Swedish competition beer, Mika’s Choice, went down a storm as well and we sold out on the second day! It was great to get to speak to loyal drinkers and also new fans of Innis & Gunn and we love to hear feedback straight from the beer drinkers mouth.
It’s also great to have a wander around and speak to the other brewers and see what they're upto. Some of our favourites from the weekend were the Barrel Project guys from Black Sheep and they're Milkshake IPA; a slightly creamy, sweet fruit bomb with some undertones of vanilla - so popular that it sold out by the Saturday!
For the last couple of years the Lagunitas stand has always been really interesting and this year was no different. They were the envy of everyone with their sofa chiller, which we're sure you'll agree should be an addition to everyone's living room!
We're already planning our stand for next year and hopefully we'll see you there!
