Evening all! Hope everyone out there is well, staying safe, and in a good place at the moment, under the circumstances. Just a little update on what I am doing. With 2 beers in tank, I had been looking at how I might still be able to get beer out - by getting small pack out to tap rooms, online retailers that were still delivering. I have decided to forget that for the next 3 weeks as it is now pretty unlikely I'll be able to contract can. If I can bottle a stout that's ready I will (I have the bottles and caps). I will now be following advice and generally staying away from anyone and everyone for a while. I still plan to be at the brewery - I have an office upstairs that I can use to continue with some other work at the moment - but I literally will be taking 5 steps to my car from my door, and 2 steps into the brewery where I work alone. Still not sure what I'll be doing with the 2 beers I have ready, probably siphoning off some for personal use and tipping the rest! With a store full of ingredients, I plan on brewing at some point in the near future, as things become clearer. I should then at least have something fresh and available when normality resumes. In the meantime, look after yourselves and each other, stay safe, and I will see you very soon! Much love Chris ...

Just a little update. We are, like most, in a position where we are likely to see a huge downturn in our business for the foreseeable future. We are still evaluating what is the best way ahead - switch to production of long lead time beers such as Lager/Pilsners etc? Don’t brew at all and focus on getting the Tap Room in place? Don’t brew at all? Put beers in cans? Essentially we are a month away from having our own premises licence, which means we can’t really do anything to move beer short term. We are looking at a combination of all of the above to reduce risk. Fortunately I have other sources of income so we will be here long term, we are not going anywhere. However, the brewery still has rent etc to pay, and potentially quite an outlay to get beers into cans to keep things ticking over. We do have a bit of merch available. Newly added are our branded glasses, guitar picks, some knitted hats. Please have a look and if you like, try to buy. Your support will help us out hugely with ongoing overheads, meaning less pocket dipping personally. We also have vouchers available. These can be used against merch, our beer (that will be available online within the next month) and in our tap room once it up and running in coming months (once we are all allowed to gather together again!). I can assure you, the tap room opening will be one huge celebration! Thank you for your continued support. X ...

A few days ago we welcomed Jon from @craftinnbeer Sutton Coldfield to help us brew up a special collab beer for Craft Inn’s birthday celebrations at the end of the month. Jon was an amazing help on the day, so much so that I burnt 500 calories less than normal for a brew day! 😂😂😂 The beer is a big juicy 6.5% IPA with the classic Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe combo🔥🔥🔥. Available at all Craft Inn outlets during the course of their Birthday celebrations at the end of March🤘🍻🤘🍻🤘 ...

Our install is almost complete and we are excitedly thinking about our impending first brew on the new, bigger kit. Or first 5 or 6 in fact! Yes, we’ve been very busy over recent weeks finalising recipes, going over water profiles, ordering ingredients etc and have our first 6 brews down. Any guesses on what’s going to be first up? Is it a Saison? An Impy Stout? Something fruity? What’s the abv? Why not have a guess? Head on over to our Facebook post below and have a go! https://www.facebook.com/126218854717164/posts/472664320072614/?d=n The closest person when we come to officially announce our first beer on the new kit in a couple of weeks will win some Leviathan goodies!! 🤘🍻🤘🍻🤘 #craftbeer #beerstagram #craftbeerpics #nocrapontap #beer #cerveza #beersofinstagram #brewerylife #birminghambeer ...

After months of waiting we can finally announce that our 5BBL Brewhouse and 3 Unitanks” will be delivered Thursday. We’ve spent recent months brewing the odd beer, but mostly ripping out our unit, installing new floors, painting and generally working towards this day. We’ve spent hours developing lots of new beers and scaling up the odd past favourite. We’ve ordered ingredients and packaging and put in place hop contracts for the majority of 2020’s plans. We have a lot of good beer planned. Bear with us a little longer as we install and commission our new kit, build a cold store, sort our premises licence for a little taproom and shop onsite. We’ll keep you posted along the way. We will see you in early 2020. It’s coming...... #craftbeer #beer #brewery #brewerylife #nocrapontap #beerstagram #leviathanbrewing #birminghambeer #craftbeerpics #craftbeerlife #craftbeerlover ...

Thinking of Tryanuary so brewing something a bit different today - a Belgian Tripel. Candied orange and lemon peel, fresh root ginger and juniper berries in the boil. Fresh cranberries to go in secondary. 10% of tasty, warming goodness to get you through the cold January and February evenings 🤘🍻🤘🍻🤘#tripel #beersofinstagram #beerstagram #craftbeer #beerpics #craftbeerpics #belgiantripel #craftbeerstagram #nocrapintap #beer #beers #beertography #beerlover #brewing #leviathanbrewing #tryanuary ...

Today was the first brew in a while. I spent a lot of time back in September and early October ripping out the pretty much the entire insides of my little unit, had a new floor and drainage put in and painted the whole place in readiness for the new kit which, thankfully, is now only a couple of weeks away. This has been a long time in the making. After 20 years of working in IT and 15 years of brewing as a hobby, various life events were the driving force behind the decision to flip that on its head and the birth of Leviathan. Many things have conspired to delay this further but we are nearly there. After 4-6 weeks of darkness, today’s brew was an immeasurable lift, the dispelling of various clouds. It served as confirmation that my decision was the right one. Brewing has given me such joy in times of darkness and I cannot wait to spread this joy on a much bigger scale. Today’s brew was a Black IPA. Pale Malt, a hefty dose of oats, flaked barley, Carafa III and a little chocolate rye form the robust backbone. Centennial bittering hops were followed by a big whirlpool of Mosaic, Simcoe, Amarillo and Azacca. The same will follow in dry hop. Coming soon, a big juicy IPA that happens to be black.... “The Darkness Within” ...
