Free Pint for Dad

Give your dear old dad something he’ll really love this Father’s Day – a pint of Brentwood Beer on us. Yes, that’s right a FREE pint. Now that is refreshing.

Just bring your dad along to The Tap Room, the brewery’s bar, this Saturday (19th June) anytime between 11am and 4pm and we’ll serve him a flavoursome, refreshing pint of Brentwood-brewed beer. You know where to find us! (next to Calcott Hall Farm Shop, off Ongar Road, Brentwood).

Spectacular Summer Virgin

It’s back for summer, it’s our Beer of the Month and it’s on the bar at The Tap Room, Brentwood Brewery’s bar. According to MD Roland, who appointed himself head of quality control on this one, “Our Summer Virgin tastes absolutely Spectacular!”

Our very first brew, Summer Virgin 4.5% ABV, is the perfect refreshment for the season. It’s a light golden beer with citrus notes and aromatic hops, giving a range of fruit flavours. Food match: brilliant with BBQs and with spicy foods.

Summer Virgin is available now in 4 pint flagons from The Brewery Shop or in 9, 18 and 36 pint Polypins online or from The Brewery Shop. We’re very sorry but this year Summer Virgin is not available in bottles. Please note that Polypins will need to be pre-ordered.

Of course, you’ll also find Summer Virgin on the bar at good, local pubs and some further afield.

Roland added: “Remember, Summer Virgin is well worth a 5 on Untappd!”

Please pop in and see us soon. We’re open Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 4pm. Find us at Calcott Hall Farm off Ongar Road, Brentwood.

May Day, May Day

Please join us this Bank Holiday Weekend to celebrate the arrival of Spring.

Our bar is open this Friday 30th April and on May Day, Saturday 1st May, from 11am – 4pm. Socially distanced, outdoor tables for up to 6 are available.

You’ll get the chance to try Elephant School Mango Unchained, which we’ll have on draught. Also on the draught beer list are: Brentwood Blonde, Brentwood Best, Lumberjack and My Milk Stout Brings All the Bulls to the Yard.

Whilst we have a brewery full of Brentwood and Elephant School Beer, we find ourselves a few sandwiches short of a picnic (it’s oft been said) this time and unable to offer food at the weekend. Instead, we’re suggesting you might like to bring your own picnic food. Naturally, we’d be much obliged if you’d buy our beer and other drinks.

Please book ahead to avoid disappointment. Call us on 01277 200483 or email [email protected]

Santa Hats for SNAP

You may notice some of our beer bottles sporting festive mini Santa hats this month. Our aim is to encourage donations to Warley-based charity SNAP. If you’d like to keep the Santa hat, pop your donation, perhaps £1, into the SNAP collection box in the Brewery Shop. Our friends at Shenfield Wines are also taking part in this fund raising idea.

SNAP, Special Needs And Parents, helps Essex families with children and young people who have any special need or disability.

Roland said: “Bottles of Frosty Baubles and Good Elf topped with a Santa hat would make great festive gifts and I’m sure SNAP will be very pleased with any donations we can help to send their way.”
