throughout 2018 - affinity brew co. 'the calendar series'
Fuggles beer cafe - Tunbridge wells + tonbridge
Another wonderful new brewery we discovered last year was Affinity, now based in their new home in Bermondsey. Initially turned on to them when hearing ex-Brew By Numbers brewer Steve was part of the team (I still think their Saisons are some of the best and luckily Steve took that skill and know how with him when they produced 'Breeze'.
Each month we'll be part of a very small club launching one off beers from Affinity. We'll be aiming to try and launch these beers hopefully on the second Thursday of each month (don't quote us on this, beer can be temperamental, as can delivery and brewing schedules!)
Fuggles beer cafe - tonbridge (22ND august) + Tunbridge wells (29th august)
We’ve a whole heap of amazing beer in our fridges and we really want to share it with you. So each month, one of our team will be hosting an informal bottle club tasting. We’ll be showcasing some rarities & one off’s as well as some of our favourites from the month, including new beer in before we put them on general sale.
£20 gets you a seat at the table with 5 beers to taste & a chance to dig into the cheese board. Plus, feel free to bring your own bits to share with the group as well!

TUNBRIDGE WELLS BEER WEEKEND!
Tunbridge wells, 13 - 16TH SEPTEMBER
The Tunbridge Wells Beer Weekend will be a celebration of all things beer from 13-16 September 2018, from the history of brewing and hop farming in Royal Tunbridge Wells, to rare barrel tastings, home brew classes and walking tours!
Join us at 9 different venues for a weekend of talks, tastings, tap takeovers and brewery open days, live music and special food events to tickle your taste buds over four glorious days. Full event listings: www.twbeer.uk
Naturally we're hosting several events across the weekend, some you need to book in for, some you can just rock up for!
Thursday 13th, 6pm: UnBarred Brewery - Meet The Brewer & Tap Takeover from this great new brewery based down in Hove. They've been a favourite of ours for a while now producing some really great beers!
Friday 14th, 9pm: Late night bottle club - Barrel Aged Rarities. We'll be hosting a tasting of rare barrel aged beers featuring some bits we've been hiding away for a special occasion and some bottles you just can't find, including some more De Struisse Black Damnation! £20 / ticket which includes access to the cheese board! Book in at the bar or email email@example.com to reserve a spot.
Saturday 15th, 12noon: Jeremy Kimmel - The Beer Cavalier - History of Hops, a talk on the history of hops! (FREE to attend)
Saturday 15th, 9pm: Late night bottle club - Aged ORVAL tasting. We'll be cracking open 5 vintages of aged ORVAL trappist ale. ORVAL is a stupidly good beer in it's own right but it is also refermented in the bottle with Brettanomyces which adds a whole load of funk and extra flavour over time. £20 / ticket which includes access to the cheese board! Book in at the bar or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Sunday 16th, 2pm: Jeremy Kimmel - The Beer Cavalier - Brewing & beer through the ages, a talk on the history of beer! (FREE to attend)
