BrewDog Announces 2016 CollabFest Beers

imageFrom BrewDog:

Last week we tipped you the wink about our upcoming celebration of collaboration -#CollabFest2016. Each and every one of our UK Bars’ crews conspired with a local brewery on a unique beer, and from this coming Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd October we are pouring all of them from the taps of the bars, giving you a chance to talk to the people who made them whilst enjoying the beers on offer.

But what exactly will you be enjoying? Well, here’s the beer list.

Our annual showcase of co-operation is in its fourth year – so we are going bigger than ever. With 27 beers on offer, we have extended the festival to cover an entire three-day weekend. So head to your nearest UK BrewDog Bar and embrace the creativity of #CollabFest2016.

So there you have it. Cherries, pomegranate, mustard – clearly nothing was off the agenda when our teams got to grips with the brewkits of those 27 incredible craft breweries. Every possible style and a huge amount of inventive interpretation unleashed – but we wouldn’t expect it to go any other way. When you head along to your local BrewDog bar during the event, be sure and ask the bar staff how they got on during their brewdays!

From the start of #CollabFest2016 weekend on Friday 21st October you can make notes as to your favourite beer on the tasting booklet available in our bars, and then tag your thoughts on social media using the #CollabFest2016 hashtag. The best online tasting notes we see will win a selection of beer and epic merch throughout the weekend! We have also worked on another collaboration – with Untappd – to create a bespoke badge for anyone checking in one of the beers over those three days, so be sure and grab yours, if you use the app!

Enjoy the beers, make notes and speak to those involved – and before #CollabFest2016 kicks off let us know which of those 27 beers is the one you’ll gravitate towards first!
