First of all, a MASSIVE thank you to every single one of our customers – wholesale, trade and the general drinking public – for your continued support during pretty awful times. Trading conditions are pretty dire and, without you lot, there really would be no point, so THANK YOU!

As expected, England is going into another lockdown this Thursday. Or at least anything Hospitality related is. Again, as expected, the rules are not entirely clear, and there is come confusion around the sale of alcohol for takeaway / delivery.

Our position, based on our interpretation of the rules, is this. We will continue to take orders VIA OUR WEBSITE ONLY. We will be offering free local delivery – continuing follow guidance on social distanced, no contact, deliveries. We will still offer ‘click and collect’ – simply select ‘COLLECTION’ as as a delivery method at checkout and we will then be in touch regards collection slot. UK wide deliveries will continue via our couriers.

We have just packaged 3 new beers and these are now available on our web shop (click here)…..

These beers are:

Fight Fire With Fire – Dark Mild 5% (440ml can)

Every Day Comes And Goes – Coffee Breakfast Stout 8.5% (440ml can)

Blood Red Sky – Imperial Stout with Cacao, Coconut and Raspberries 10.5% (330ml bottle).

Coming very soon – Messe Noire – Baltic Porter 9.3%

We continue to brew and will keep you updated with regards new beer availability in due course!

So, another day, another press conference, another cobbled together set of restrictions based on ‘because reasons’.

Not the best year to invest everything in setting up a brewery eh? But that I’ve done and I guarantee it, and I, will still be here long beyond the challenges Covid and a bunch of Eton cunts throws at us and our customers.

After a growth in demand for kegs, following the reopening of society, the uncertainty in recent weeks has meant that pub/bar demand has dried up, with establishments understandably running down stocks. Will tonight’s announcements bring clarity and some reassurance? We will see. In the meantime I’m planning only for small pack moving forward.

I’ve 2 beers being canned on the 22/10 – “Fight Fire With Fire” a Mild, and “Every Day Comes And Goes”, an 8% breakfast stout, brewed with Ethiopian cold brew coffee that we are sourcing from a small local Indy, cacao and a touch of vanilla. An 8% mocha in a can if you will.

In the meantime I’m also continuing to brew what I can on the small kit, with 2 beers being bottled later this week – “Messe Noire”, a straight up 9.3% Baltic Porter and “Blood Red Sky” a 10.5% Coconut, Cacao and Raspberry Imperial Stout. Around 500 bottles should be available across these 2 brews. Later this week there’s a 10% Imperial Saison being brewed, with 2 more big, dark beers being brewed next week! So, lot’s of very big, very dark beers to come, just in time for Xmas.

Tap Room wise, I don’t see any point in opening this year, given the ever changing set of rules we are being hit with, and the chunk of investment needed. I am however going to be getting some refurb work done so that I can at least open as a shop for take out. I’ll update you all on that as things progress. In the meantime, I’ll have plenty of small pack, including lots of guest beer, available or free local delivery and further afield.

Wherever you are, whatever the restrictions, whatever you feel comfortable doing, get out if you can and support your local small guys. The likes of Spoons etc will survive this shit, always the first to be ‘exempt’ from proposals, restrictions. Go to your local Indy bar, bottle shop, restaurant, butchers, grocers, deli, coffee shop etc. YOU are their only support.

Fuck Amazon et al.

Be careful out there.

Today we shipped out the first kegs of our new 6.5% IPA – In Waves – a single hop range (this one Kohatu). We’ve also stock of Sonne a 4.8% Cascade hopped American Wheat which we are very pleased with! Trade peeps, get in touch via sales@leviathanbrewing.co.uk, or if you use Eebria via https://www.eebriatrade.com/producer/show/1143?r=leviathanbrewing

Plenty more coming up soon! In tank now there’s something more West Coast, style which we’ll tell you more about when it’s ready for kegging early next week, and another brew planned for Thursday (looking like 6% joose, but that could change 😂)

Ten days ago we brewed a 9.3ish% Baltic Porter on the 1 bbl pilot kit, the first of a small batch bottled range we have planned. Tomorrow we brew the second of these, an 11% Imperial version of something we’ve brewed before 😉.

The continued Covid bollocks means two things. Firstly, we’ve another canning slot provisionally booked in towards the end of November (beers to be announced in due course) so we can keep supplying all you wonderful people at home who have supported us since we started brewing early this year. We are still doing home deliveries (free local) of what we have left of our own, and various guest beers. Secondly, we aren’t rushing to open our tap room for the moment, although that’s not to say we aren’t going to be doing some work on it over coming weeks!

We’ll keep you posted on everything as we move forward.

Stay safe, be sensible, lock your doors and windows by 10pm and, remember…..

Be careful out there!

As Staind once sang, “It’s been a while”. 

Generally their songs a shit but, these 4 words (arguably 5), from one of their ‘tunes’ is valid.

I just thought I’d give a little update on things. Lockdown, no lockdown, selective lockdown, it’s all been a bit tricky to plan ahead, which is great when you’ve just started out as a new brewery. 

Luckily I’ve been able to can some beers. Frustratingly this means waiting around for canners to be available and therefore a huge reduction in output. It also means a band getting shitty about things that arguably aren’t trademarked. It also means you’ve zero control over the quality of your end product, something that does not sit very well with me, and something I’ve experience issues with in one case. 

Fortunately, with the relaxing of lockdown, for now, there seems to have been a resurgence in demand for keg beer, something I’m concentrating on for now. 

Historically I’ve enjoyed brewing a myriad of styles. This is fine, until you are reliant on selling beer 😂😂. Hazy IPA? Gone in 5 days. Hazy Pale? Gone in 3 days. Wheat beer? Don’t call us, we’ll call you 😂.

Looking ahead, I’ve a single hopped range planned, the first, a Kohatu IPA being in tank now. More to follow. This week I brewed a Baltic Porter, a long lead time beer, 360 bottles of which should be ready for all your Xmas stash purchases. This is the first of many small batch brews that I plan to release alongside the larger, more ‘general’ stuff.

As a write this I’m just looking at the water treatment for tomorrow’s brew, an old school West Coast IPA. Something bitter and resinous and around 6.7%. I hope it works out and you enjoy it. Beyond this, I’ve a few big stouts planned for coming weeks, again in time for your Xmas stashes, albeit a portion of which will be sitting in various barrels beyond Xmas. 

With regards the Tap Room, I’ve been struggling to know what to do for the best, given the ever changing ‘advice’ from the Govt. For know, I’ve no opening date in mind, but rest assured work will be starting in readiness. 

Thanks for reading. Thanks for the huge support so far. Big love x 

When lockdown kicked in, we had to switch to canning our beers. This wasn’t something we anticipated or wanted to be doing so early on (literally our second brew!). However, this allowed us to get our beer out and about and we had a lot of local support, which has been fantastic and kept us treading water during extremely difficult trading conditions.

We do plan to continue canning – we’ve already decided what the next 3 will be – but have nothing booked in the diary as yet. In the meantime we are brewing every week, the output of which is going into kegs to satisfy growing demand now that many establishments are opening.

We are now starting to think about getting the necessary refurb work carried out to open our tap room, something we’ve understandably held back on over the last 5 months.

Sale!!!

This brings us onto our remaining beer stock. We’ve dropped the prices of all of the remaining guest beer in our store, to shift as much as we can before we start clearing the place out! There are some big savings, plus we still have a 10% off deal for the ‘Tap Room @ Home’ bundles of over 8 beers with 2 free snacks! Same delviery terms apply – free local (B & selected WS postcodes) and £7.50 further afield. So, why not head over to the webshop and pick up some beers!
