As you may be familiar, I recently I set up a trade mailing list. The main inspiration was really based around bridging the gap between brand new/very small breweries, and retailers. Generally a new brewery needs to send out samples before a retailer will commit (which is fair enough), but here we're asking bottle shops/tap rooms/pubs and the like to enter into the spirit of embracing the new and commit to stocking beer from a forthcoming host, especially for Craft Beer Hour. The idea is that it makes beers from smaller breweries generally a bit easier to get hold of.
This week sees that process kick into action for the first time. Eight bottle shops, one distributor and two dedicated online retailers have taken part to help Bianca Road get their beers from Peckham all the way up to Fife in Scotland, Newcastle (two shops), Stoke, Manchester, Liverpool and of course, into seven bottle shops around London. So, if you're local to any of the shops below, please go out and support them. If you're not, we have two online retailers ready to ship the beers to you.
ALSO: Join Bianca Road founder, Reece Wood at the Beer Shop London on Tuesday night for a special Meet the Brewer ahead of Craft Beer Hour (although don't distract him from the job at hand). Samples of all the beers will be available, and the Session IPA will be on draught from 4pm... just sayin.
