Last weekend at the Great Welsh Beer and Cider Festival was undoubtedly the most successful weekend we have ever had. It brings things in to perspective for us when Gazz and I look back at only 2 years ago when we use to take a day off work to attend the beer fest as beer enthusiasts.
We are so chuffed and proud to have won the following awards:
Champion Beer of Wales 2013
1. Tiny Rebel Dirty Stop Out
2. Tiny Rebel Fubar
3. Tiny Rebel Urban IPA
Tiny Rebel Urban IPA
Tiny Rebel Fubar
Tiny Rebel Dirty Stop Out
Tiny Rebel Hadouken
We were told that this is the 1st time in history that one brewery has ever taken 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the Champion Beer of Wales competition. Mental.
It’s that time of the year again…the GWBCF is back! Opening today and running until Saturday (or when all the beer has gone) in Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena we’re back for our second year and raising the bar once more.
Along with our core range of 7 we have an additional 9 new beers for you all to try, with one of them being served directly out of an Oak Cask! There are probably only a handful of places worldwide where you’ll be able to drink beer served straight from an oak cask, and for the next 3 days Cardiff is one of them. And of course the Hop Rocket is back as well. Here’s the menu:
You might be wondering what the ‘on the van’ is all about…last year we had so many of you asking for tee’s and merchandise etc we thought it would be a good idea to have a stall of some sort. So we all got racking our brains and we may have got a bit carried away because we went out and bought and pimped up our very own 1960′s Bedford CF Ice Cream Van!
If you’re unable to make it to the festival then why not come to our After Party on Saturday night at Fire Island http://tinyrebel.co.uk/blog/2013/05/28/tiny-rebel-gwbcf-after-party-fire-island/
Thank you to everyone who made it down to our brewery bar opening last Friday night, hope you all had a good time! We have now counted up the money taken that night and we can confirm that we all managed to raise just over £2500 for 54321 Cymru! Which is far more than we ever anticipated so thanks again to you all.
We would also like to thank WOW Events (Rhian & Ben) http://www.woweventhire.co.uk/ who very generously donated all the awesome inflatable sofa’s and tables, LWC Drinks for donating the wine and soft drinks, the guys from Got Beef for their very generous donation and all our friends and family who helped us set up and clean up.
Our next brewery bar opening is going taking place at the end of August and by then we’ll have an all new bar layout, which will make serving a hell of a lot quicker. But it’s going to be hard to top last Friday but I’m sure we can come up with something to make our next opening just as good.
The Tiny Rebel Team
With only one day to go until our brewery bar open evening we thought that it’s about time we gave you the full beer and drinks list as well as answers to some FAQ’s.
- 4 x New Barrel Aged Specials
- The Vader Shuffle
- Dirty Stop Out
- Vanilla Cocoa
- American Heffe
- Urban IPA
That’s a hell of a line up!
We like to cater for all so if beer isn’t your thing we have white, red and rosé wine as well as soft drinks for the ones who have pulled the short straw.
And finally just want to clear up a few questions we’ve been getting in:
- The bar is cash only. We do not have chip and pin facilities yet.
- Anyone can come
- It’s not a ticketed event
- No children please (it’s for their own safety)
SEE YOU TOMORROW
The GWBCF is back and is kicking off Thursday 6th June – Saturday 8th. We’ll be there in our usual front of house location showcasing our awesome core range as well as 9 new beers for you all to try.
Unfortunately last year we sold out of beer pretty quickly which forced us to shut down our bar before any other brewery over all three days. This meant that by Saturday there were lots of you who couldn’t try our beers and had no other way of getting hold of them either…which made us very sad This year we have decided to put a stop to this madness and have team up the awesome guys at Fire Island to bring to you the TINY REBEL GWBCF AFTER PARTY!
On Saturday 8th @ 6pm we’ll be re-launching our full festival cask line up that includes all 9 newbies (in case you missed any of them) , Hadouken on Keg and free samples of our latest prototype beers for you to judge.
1. Belgian IPA 6%
2. Imperial Full Nelson 7.5%
3. Strawberry Sour 4.4%
As well as free beer there will be free American BBQ bites for all and the music is being sponsored by the Tiny Rebel i-pod so if you have any requests then let us know!
Hope you come and join us for this beer fuelled after party! What a great way to end an awesome festival.
Building on the success that we have had on securing permanent cask taps in 11 different pubs / bars in South Wales and Bristol, we want to proudly announce that we have recently increased this number to 14 with 3 additional permanent KEG lines in 3 new awesome places…
Taffs Wells Finest ‘Fagins Ale and Chop House, The Legendary ‘Le Pub’ in Newport and The Stylish ‘Nos Da’ in Cardiff will now be permanently serving Tiny Rebel Craft Keg Beer.
The beers available will be ranging from our core selection of Fubar, Urban IPA, The Full Nelson and Hadouken to our more specialist Tiny Batch Editions.
If you run a pub, bar or restaurant and are looking for a cask ale alternative why not give us a shout – email@example.com
Yesterday was the judging of the SIBA Wales and West beer competition held up in Ludlow where for the 1st time ever we entered some of our beers to be scored and judged. The beers that we entered were Fubar, Urban IPA, Billabong and Cwtch. We couldn’t actually make it up to Ludlow yesterday for the judging and results because we were too busy brewing, racking our barrel aged beers and hosting a brewery tour/experience that we had auctioned off at a St Davids charity event back in November (which amazingly raised £1000).
Anyways, just as the auction winners were arriving we received 3 emails from SIBA revealing our results…
We were a bit disappointed we couldn’t make it 4 out of 4, but hey…3 is bloody awesome!
We’re actually off up to Ludlow in a few hours for a team day out – Hope there are some beers left.
IT’S BACK! And this time….it’s for charity!
On Friday 31st we are opening our brewery back up to you lovely people for an awesome evening of beer, burgers, music and charity! Yes charity! As a family and business, charity has always been very important to us and over the years supporting the likes of St Davids Hospice, Cystic Fibrosis Trust and the Noah’s Ark Appeal by raising money through Golf Days, Auctions, Abseiling and sponsored walks. The latest fundraising adventure started and finished last weekend with 5 Charities, 4 Countries, 3 Days, 2 Wheels and 1 Challenge – Cycle from England to Holland. The guys succeeded and to celebrate their return all entry money taken on the evening will be donated to 5-4-3-2-1 Cymru with Tiny Rebel matching the amount raised.
Also on the evening we’ll have food available! Yes proper food! You can now leave your packed lunches at home because we’re being joined on the night by gourmet burger specialist ‘GOT BEEF’. These guys burgers are awesome…and so is their bus.
We’ll be releasing the full beer list a week before the opening and with it being the weekend before the Great Welsh Beer and Cider Festival there might be one or two new beers for you to try.
It all started last year at the Great Welsh Beer Fest when the band HADOUKEN! caught wind via twitter that we had a beer named….Hadouken!
If you don’t know who HADOUKEN! are I would seriously recommend that you go and check them out. They have just released their 3rd Album ‘Every Weekend’ and boast a massive online following with over 67 million views on their latest music video ‘Levitate’. It’s hard to put these guys in to a genre but they have been described by Zane Lowe as – ”Their position in bass culture is unique, bringing both the live element and credibility in the electronic music field together to create something unique in Bad Signal.”. And after going to the on gig Saturday night I can tell you 1st hand that the bass was so deep they could hear the vibes in Jamaica. Good times. www.hadouken.com
While keeping in touch on twitter we asked the band if they fancied coming down to the brewery to brew Hadouken with us and luckily they had a gig coming up in Bristol so the date was set. Nick (Drums) Chris (Bass) and Dan ‘Pilau’ (Guitar) rocked up to the brewery and we all dived straight in to some beer sampling, being a Saturday morning and all. It turned out that the guys are ale drinkers anyway so we naturally got them on the tasting panel sampling some of our newest prototype beers. After weighing out the hops, digging out the mash tun and having a few drink in the bar the guys shot back to Bristol for their sound check. The gig was in ‘The Fleece’ which is just around the corner from a few tidy beer bars which we hit before and after.
Overall it was a great night and a big thanks to HADOUKEN! for an awesome time and for our goody bag which was kindly kept safe by the crew at Brewdog Bristol while we went out and partied
