Rebellion Open Evening, 10 May 12 May 2016

The local pub organised a trip to a public evening at the Rebellion Brewery in Marlow Bottom. (Images follow; all are cc-by-sa.)

I think breweries have noticed that "brewery tours" are largely drinking opportunities. One brewery works much like another, after all.

So mostly it was barbecue and free beer.

I think this phrase is now Officially Over.

The new brewery shop is doing a better job of being a local farm shop than some of the local farm shops. At least it doesn't stock all that horrid wilted lettuce that they seem to regard as necessary.

The brewery has just undergone the last expansion it can accommodate on this site, which suggests they're probably thinking about moving some time in the next few years.

In the cold store, Tim (the sales founder rather than the brewing founder) gave a quick talk about the history of beer and brewing in the UK. Rather inaccurate, but entertaining.

More beer was available, of course.

They seem to sell a lot of these 22-pint mini-barrels (bright, with a three week shelf life, supposedly even after opening). Might try one some time. (The barrels and taps are reusable.)

Stop tap at 9.30, and glass collection at the end of the evening.
