Deptford Craft Beer Feast - 24th March 2018
Hosted by Hop Stuff Brewery, this was a showcase of local breweries and street food in Deptford Market Yard SE8.
Spring was heralded in with DJ tunes and a plethora of beers weird, wonderful and everything in between. To keep beer lovers' tummies full, street food from Eat Chay, Biff's Jack Shack, Indian Street Kitchen and Hank's Po Boys sold out the goods to complement local offerings from Taproom SE8, Mama’s Jerk chicken, and Dirty Apron. There was something for everyone and good vibes all round.
23 breweries were showcasing their hoppy stylings: Big Hug Brewing // Brew By Numbers // Brick Brewery // Canopy Beer Co // Edinburgh Beer Factory // Five Points // Fourpure // Gipsy Hill // Hammerton Brewery // Hop Stuff Brewery // Jeffersons Brewery // London Beer Factory // Lost and Grounded Brewing // Mondo Brew Co // New Zealand Beer Collective // North Brew Co // Northern Monk // Ora Brewing // Partizan Brewing // Siren Craft Brew // Solvay Society // Stewart Brewing // Villages Brewery.
Street Child - Craft Half Marathon
Sunday 4th February saw 270 runners take on the muddy trails of Wimbledon Common for Street Child’s first ever Craft Half - the half marathon, with half pints. Runners came from as far afield as Scotland and Yorkshire, supported by a strong contingent from Putney, Wimbledon and Barnes.
Hop Stuff were the official beer sponsor and provided cans of delicious craftos every two miles for runners to refresh and engage in a bit of chat. There was a buzzing atmosphere at the start-finish line courtesy of Putney and Wimbledon Brass band .
Post race, runners were welcomed into the (heated!) Halfter Party tent by local band Don’t Look Now playing classic covers and offering runners the perfect opportunity to dance out any tension in the legs! Sizzling street food traders from Street Child’s partner Kerb were on hand to provide some well-earned carbs and Hop Stuff served up more pints of craft beer.
It's spent over a year sensuously maturing in Burgundy wine barrels, so Woody Barrelson is a 7.4% ABV elegantly complex aged porter in short supply (< 600 litres ). Hop Stuff are chuffed to share it after 12 months of gentle woody care. Find out more here.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not associated, condoned, or endorsed by Woody Harrelson. The artwork here, on the tap badge, and on the bottle is the second in a series with Quite Good Cards - see more of their work here. They share our pursuit for making craft beer a bit less scrupulous and a little more friendly.
