Thank you Marts, New Beers #13, and Cloudwater DIPA v11

Howdy Folks, Last night was a HOOT! The whole team at BottleCraft would like to extend a massive thank you to Will and Holly for having their brewery launch at our little gaff. All three beers went down very well, with the Smileyface IPA definitely proving to be the most popular. We've still got them in stock, so if you didn't make it down yesterday, they're waiting for you on our shelves and in the fridge. On to new beers. We've had a bunch of different things in since update 12. Have a gander: Brooklyn - Lager - 5.2% Brooklyn - East IPA - 6.9% Brooklyn - American Ale - 4.5% Brugse Zot - Zot Blond - 6% NEW - Cloudwater - Session IPA Wai-iti - 4.5% NEW - Cloudwater - Mittelfruh Lager - 4.8%

Back to the Future Tasting Night - 19th January 2017

Thursday night saw the first tasting event of 2017. The theme was Back to the Future, with a selection of our favourites from last year as well as beers and breweries to look out for in the coming year. We even had a time traveller of our own serving up the fun: Starting part one, we needed to go back! Beavertown Lupuloid was one of our favourites from last year, setting a new standard for hoppy, fruity IPAs. That was followed by Gun Brewery's DIPA, before a bit of a wild card. Of the Sea from Wild Beer Co. is a lobster, cockles, seaweed, salt and herb beer, perhaps a taste of the future? Fourth was Lost and Grounded Keller Pils, an excellent lager packed with full bodied flavours. They're d

"For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past, or the present, are certain to miss the future." John F Kennedy Crikey, BottleCraft starting a blog with an inspirational quote! Our apologies, we thought we’d do something a bit different as we've got big news to tell you all. As some of you may already have heard, we have plans afoot to open a second premises in Hanley during 2017, and now our planning permission is in progress we want to tell you what we’re intending to do and why we’re hoping to do it. We’ve been open at 54 Marsh Street now for just over 20 months, and thanks to all of you that time has exceeded all of our wildest

Mart's Brewery Official Launch at BottleCraft

Alongside the area's established brewery Titanic, there's been an influx of new players to the game in recent years. Weal, Ran and Bike Shed are all bringing something new to the local beer scene, and that's what Mart's Craft Beer hope to do too. We're delighted that they're holding their official launch at BottleCraft, and I sat down with Will Haywood, founder of Mart's, and long-time BottleCraft customer, to find out more ahead of the event... So Will, tell me about yourself. What got you into brewing, and how long have you been doing it for? I'm 37 and live and work in Stoke-on-Trent. I moved here for uni in 1998 and stayed after my degree. Brewing is something that caught my attention as

We're back open now, with stacks of fresh stock ready and waiting for you.
