Key Lime Tau Beer in UK for one day only: Tau Day – 28 June 2018


A collaboration between Cumbria’s Hawkshead Brewery and Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project in Denver, Colorado, USA. Key Lime Tau Beer, is brewed with fresh lime zest and lemon grass, which gives the beer a biscuity taste and a strong lime flavour – just like a key lime pie.

Key Lime Tau (a clever play on the mathematical term ‘pi’ multiplied by two which is ‘tau’) is a limited edition kettle-soured, lactose-infused golden ale.

Thursday June 28th 2018 will see craft beer lovers and maths fanatics alike, rejoice across the globe with the annual release of the very rare beer, as Key Lime Tau is famously only released for one day each year – naturally on International Tau Day (28 June).

On International Tau Day, June 28th, just 4,800 bottles will be available to buy from select craft beer retailers in the UK*. Hawkshead Beer Hall will be the only place in the world to have its Key Lime Tau on cask and will be celebrating over the weekend with live music and an American-inspired food offering.

Key Lime Tau was first brewed in collaboration with Crooked Stave in 2015 for the International Rainbow Project, a bringing together of independent craft brewers to nurture innovation and share best practice.

International Tau Day itself is a global institution, with the Key Lime Tau brew being just one of the many ways, including limited edition art, branded clothing and discussions and events, that fans will be embracing to celebrate this mathematical symbol.

Set a reminder to buy online when Key Lime Tau stock is released on June 28th.  A 330 ml bottle costs £6.28 (yes, that’s ‘tau’ – 3.14  X 2 aka pi x 2)

Deep Ellum Brewing Company

Joins CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective

“CANarchy is a group that has not conformed and has hit critical mass on the path of coming together to stay independent. We’re all in.” – Deep Ellum founder John Reardon

DALLAS, TX – JUNE 12, 2018 – Deep Ellum Brewing Company is the latest craft brewery to join the CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective. For Deep Ellum, a craft brewery with rough edges and deep roots in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, Texas, the move to join the disruptive collective of independent brewers will immediately provide resources for increased production and distribution.

Founded in 2011 by John Reardon, Deep Ellum Brewing Company quickly grew to become the third largest independent craft brewery in Texas, led by its flagship brews, Dallas Blonde and Deep Ellum IPA. In 2017, Deep Ellum grew 37% to produce more than 45,000 bbls in Texas only, with the vast majority being consumed within 20 miles of the brewery.

CANarchy provides a platform from which rapidly growing craft breweries seeking high level resources can expand and compete in the increasingly competitive craft beer segment, while maintaining independence. The platform is driven by individual brewery culture, giving brewers control of their businesses and brands, while providing resources and support to scale their respective operations.

About Deep Ellum Brewing Company

In 2011, Deep Ellum Brewing Company set up shop in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, Texas – the first craft brewery to open in Dallas in over a decade. Since then, Deep Ellum has become as well known for its innovative brewing and exceptional quality as it has for its healthy disdain for the status quo. Like the notorious neighborhood it calls home, the brewery is bold, fearless, and unapologetic. The idea of “blending in” was never part of the plan – at the bar or on the shelf. With a commitment to staying true to their reckless streak, their rough edges and their roots, Deep Ellum has quickly grown to become the 3rd largest independent craft brewery in Texas and the 65th largest brewery overall. Led by its flagships, Deep Ellum IPA and Dallas Blonde, the brewery has amassed an extremely devoted fan base across Texas and beyond.  @deepellumbrewing #LoveRunsDeep

Stone Brewing Introduces ///Fear.Movie.Lions Double IPA

///Discouraged.Stones.Visit (June 15, 2018) – Stone Brewing announces the release of Stone ///Fear.Movie.Lions Double IPA is named after a 3m x 3m square in Stone’s Richmond, VA brewery with three words painted on it. What three words?  what3words, a global addressing system that brings locators to the previously difficult to locate locations around the world. Literally. As in, more than three trillion of them.

““We’re supporting the what3words convention because we think it’s cool, and we see the significant social good in it,” said Stone Brewing Executive Chairman & co-founder Greg Koch.”

‘Stone ///Fear.Movie.Lions Double IPA takes the East Coast inspiration of an unfiltered IPA, but spares any predictability beyond its lack of filtration. It’s amped up to 8.5% ABV with a noticeably West Coast-influenced bitterness, and tactfully balanced Richmond-style finish. The aroma provides a juicy bounty of fresh fruit and fresh hops. Its fresh-squeezed juice flavors include a hint of white sage and pair beautifully with sweet, salty and tangy dishes like Pad Thai noodles, Hawaiian Fried Rice or Prosciutto-wrapped melon.”

“Available in 16oz cans and on draft, the unfiltered Double IPA will be brewed only in Richmond, VA, and year-round distribution will be focused exclusively across the Eastern seaboard.”
