Update ahead of Micropub Pop Up News…
Starting with the bad news, I’m still not actually in at 52 Boston Road, W7, yet. The lease agreement is taking it’s time so realistically the micropub won’t be up and running until the new year now as there will be about 3-4 weeks of work required before being ready for serving. Yes, the delays are killing me and yes, I’m so bored of saying this but watch this space for further progress.
Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. And breathe….
On to the good news …
While I wait to get up and running in Hanwell, I will be popping up outside Ealing Town Hall at 3 events in December with the good folk at Eat Me Drink Me. The 3 dates to put in your diary for all your ale and craft beer needs are –
* Sunday 11th December – 11am – 3pm – W5 Food Market
* Saturday 17th December – 5pm – 9pm – Christmas W5 Night Market
*Sunday 18th December – 11am – 4pm – Christmas W5 Food Market
All outside Ealing Town Hall on Uxbridge Road.
There’ll be lots of yummy food and drinks traders and there’ll even be Santa and his reindeer at the night market!
I’ll be running the bar for the Saturday Night Market so see below for the full drinks list. Hope to see you at some point over the 3 pop up events.
The Dodo Micropub Pop Up Stock List
No cask ale available at the pop up but I do have a tasty line up of ales and craft beer to whet your appetite and give you a little insight into what you might be able to expect from The Dodo Micropub’s bottle fridge. There’ll also be mulled cider and meaty snacks to keep you toasty and energised.
The line-up looks like this:
Weird Beard Brew Co –
Hanwell based craft beer brewery that I’m sure needs no introduction. The jewel of Ealing beer as I like to call them. The beers really do speak for themselves.
Mariana Trench – Flagship, transpacific pale ale
Five O’clock Shadow – American IPA
Black Perle – Coffee, milk stout
Hops Maiden England – All English hop pale ale
7th Church of the Apocalyptic Lawn Mower – A collaboration with Anspach & Hobday, another great craft brewery in London, creating a dark cream ale.
Kew Brewery –
Award winning craft brewery inspired by the royal botanical gardens themselves. I love what they do, flavoursome, delicious US style craft beer using English ingredients. Thoroughly lovely people too!
Botanic – Amber ale with a hint of juniper
Pagoda Pale No.7 – Crowned champion beer at this year’s Ealing Beer Festival, a solid pale ale
Petersham Porter – A full, luxurious, London porter
Sandycombe – A golden ale that’s crisp and refreshing
Tottenham based, absolutely explosive, craft beer brewery set up by Logan Plant. Yes, he is Robert Plant’s son but is now much more famed for his brewing.
Gamma Ray – Tropical, American pale ale
Neck Oil – Easy-drinking session IPA
Moor Beer Company –
Bristol based brewery who are leaders in producing un-fined, naturally conditioned, live yeast beers. So much so that they are the first canned beers to be recognised by CAMRA as real ale!
Revival – A refreshing, hoppy bitter
Union’Hop – Multiple award winning ultra pale ale
Tiny Rebel Brewing –
CAMRA and SIBA award winning brewery based in South Wales. Relatively new to the beer scene but making big waves. Cask ale enthusiasts.
Fubar – Flagship pale ale using American hops
Siren Craft Brew –
Wokingham based brewery passionate about their craft and creating some glorious beers. This is a bit self-indulgent of me as this is one of my favourite stouts! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Broken Dream – An oatmeal, velvety stout with coffee and chocolate aromas.
Pilton Spice Road Mulled Cider –
Artisan cider producers, Pilton, have created a spicy mulled cider blending no less than 8 eastern spices with their West Country, Somerset dry cider.
Premium, artisan, meaty snacks from Cleaver & Keg – chorizo, salami, beef and hot beef yumminess. Sorry veggies, limited snack range for the pop up from me but you will be covered in the Hanwell Micropub.
Finally, beer trio gift boxes will be available for those wanting to buy beer as a present for your nearest and dearest. Bloody good present if you ask me!
Hope to see some of you at the micropub pop up in Ealing Broadway!
