We can’t say exactly what you’ll find here but it will include all the news from the brewhouse and what we are up to along with plenty of observations and stories from the wider world of beer and our assorted brew buddies. There will also be a bit about what makes us tick; stuff like beards (because we have a lot of them), tattoos (likewise) and music, as well as inspirations from all sorts of places. We may well also take a look at counter culture and styles, renegades through history, custom rides, and give you links to our friends who are of a free spirited mind like us. Who knows?!
So, this was launched a few weeks ago, but in the seasonal rush we forgot to blog it. So, in typical Renegade better-late-than-never style, here is all the skinny on our latest collaboration brew, Red Eye Pale Ale and it’s award-winning exploits.
Yes, it is true, we love a bit of gin as well as all the beers. So much so, that we thought we ought to combine these two passions. So we hooked up with our friends at Drinkwell Bars, who are as daft about the drinks as we are, to see what we could come up with.
Beer and music are perfect bedfellows So we found a recent scientific study that showed that your soundtrack of choice can influence how drinks and food taste, and even alter their alcoholic strength, rather fascinating. So if your beer is too bitter or your wine is too sweet – it may be the music you are listening to.
Those crazy Germans are indeed at it again. This time, those beer obsessed Teutonic’s are combining get fit with get fat after teaching people to do yoga – using beer bottles.
We end our accidental self imposed news / blog silence to bring you news of the fantastic live music shows we are hosting at Baila Coffee & Vinyl in Swindon. Check them out!
The Renegade Brewery sponsored Swindon Shuffle music festival is celebrating its 10th year this week and has a bumper line up in place across multiple venues in the Old Town area of Swindon. Already sponsors of the Songs of Praise nights at Shuffle venue Baila, our beers are a regular fixture in the town, available on the bar at Baila and The Victoria and the shelves of Magnum Wine.
The OktoberWest Bierfest Returns! Our “other” brewery, with a lot of help from us are back with the annual party blowout to end all party blowouts! Yes, the can’t-miss event of the summer is back and better than ever!
This months musical opening salvo at Baila Coffee & Vinyl in Swindon is a real sweet show featuring the talents of Dreuw, Luke De-Sciscio + TriAmi. It is going to be awesome!
We are more excited than a chimp at tea-time to be confirmed as the official beer of Fieldview Festival! Happy Festival goers will be able to refresh themselves with our Craft Lager, West Coast Pale Ale and a soon to be launched new product at the event in Wiltshire between 4th and 7th August.
It has been a bit of a landmark week here at the brewery with two mega bits of news! We have now signed the deals on our new custom-built, cutting-edge brewery that will increase brewing capacity ten-fold – and, to put the cherry on top, we have also purchased our first urban pub, Shillibeers, in Islington, London.
