Top Tips - Take Away Draught Beer

22 April 2020

You can't go to the pub, but you've got some of our take-away draught beer so all is good. By draught we're talking 1 or 3 litre bottles, 5 litre tins, 18 pint boxes and 22 pint mini barrels.

Here are a few tips to enjoy your beer at its best.

 

Don't Let it Hang Around

As soon as you open the container (excluding the 22 pint mini barrel) it's going to start losing life, so try and enjoy the beer on the day you open it. It will be perfectly drinkable the next day.

22 pint mini barrels are designed to let you enjoy top quality beer for up to 4 weeks.

Bottled beers have a shelf life of a year but will benefit from being enjoyed sooner rather than later.

 

Keep it Cool

Store your beers somewhere cool, in the garage or shed is good. If it is hot, puts them in the fridge and take out 30 min before drinking.

*Be aware that keeping our draught beers in the fridge can result in a chill haze, a harmless, tasteless cloudy effect caused by the protein getting cold*

 

Serving Temperature

Copper and darker beers may be best drunk at about room temperature, this will bring out the malty flavours and give a nice full mouthfeel.

Lighter beers like Zebedee can benefit from being served a bit cooler. This will enhance their refreshing qualities.

Bottles of lager should always be enjoyed straight from the fridge.

But the beer is for you to enjoy so drink the beer at the temperature you like it.

 

Glassware

Make sure your glasses are clean, nothing kills the life of beer like a dirty glass. Clean and rinse well, any soap left in the glass will kill that lovely head and take life from the beer.

 

Snacks & Food

Make sure you have got your favourite snacks to hand. A good snack can really enhance a beer drinking experience so reach for your crisps, nuts, scratchings, biltong etc. whatever you love. If you love your food think about choosing the beer to match the meal, or the other way round.

    "Rebellion beer is my favourite brewery. I love the regular beers and many of the monthly specials. The brewery shop is one of my favourite places and members nights are an experience not to be missed."
    "Visited the newly opened Tap Yard and was very impressed with everything from the way they’ve transformed the old containers into this fabulous bar, to the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy within a great atmosphere."
    "Fantastic place for a beer lover. Great selection of tasty, fresh ales in the shop and Tap Yard. Warm, friendly atmosphere and very kind and helpful staff."
    "Had their beers before and liked them. Even better here at the Tap Yard because they've only travelled short distance across the premises. Staff friendly and very helpful. None of the "I only work here" vibe you can get in some places. Staff seemed only too willing to help. Brilliant!"
    "Visited the newly opened tap room the other Saturday and was very impressed with everything including the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy with a great atmosphere."
