Hop Burns & Bottle Share with Gregg Irwin from Weird Beard Brew Co

Introducing Hop Burns & Bottle Share, a regular series of intimate evenings celebrating the love of beer.

Each event will see one of our favourite brewers curating the main part of the night - they'll select six of their favourite beers, both from their own brewery and around the UK/the world, which you'll get to enjoy while they explain exactly why they love them.

To conclude the night, we hand the bottle sharing over to you. Feel free to bring along your best homebrew, your latest rare score or that bottle you've been saving up to share with fellow beer lovers, and let the games begin...

Following each event, our guest brewer's beer selection will be available to buy in store and online at (the awesome online shopping hub for local independent shops).

We're delighted to announce our first Hop Burns & Bottle Share guest brewer is Gregg Irwin from Weird Beard Brew Co.

Weird Beard was founded in 2013 by Gregg and Bryan Spooner, both award-winning home brewers. Gregg, Bryan and their team make wildly imaginative, no-holds-barred beer with the best ingredients, knowledge and respect for process, unleashing inventively delicious new brews on the scene with alarming regularity.

We're fully signed up to the Weird Beard fan club (you'll find Jen singing their praises in the 2015 CAMRA Guide to London Beer, in fact) and are delighted Gregg's stepped up to the plate. Gregg was responsible for the iconic pale ale that is Mariana Trench (one of London's tastiest, juiciest pales) so can pretty much do no wrong.

Tickets are just £15 and include generous tasters of Gregg's selection plus a 10% discount on all beers purchased on the night.
