So, we've been doing some canvassing over at T&G HQ, with regards to what we could offer customers, as gifting options ahead of Father's Day.
As always, it's been quite a journey, with lots of twists and turns and to be frank, it did look like we were beginning to get lost.
But then the team visited Campfire London - on a research mission - and a sort of epiphany happened. Perhaps it was the music, the vibes and the smell of meat grilling over open flame that set things in motion. But we suspect that it was mainly the beer wot dun it officer.
Two Tribes Brewery have been in residence on their Kings Cross site for some time now and given that we stock their beer at EC1 - a decision was made that we should really help to spread the word.
All just in time for June 20th would you believe! (Do not say that we don't work hard at this sort of stuff.)
In all seriousness, the beers we have selected are really rather good. Their Metroland Session IPA is exceptionally citrusy and easy to drink and the Dream Factory Pale Ale, brewed with Mosaic and Citra hops, is also refreshingly fruity.
Perfect compliments to the selection of steaks that are available with the box and great for drinking in the sun whilst the BBQ is going. Yes, it's perked up a bit now, hasn't it.
So, if you are looking to treat your Dad in a couple of weeks time, or maybe fancy trying these beers yourself, make sure you get your orders in soon.
If this goes down well, we must just make this a permanent fixture - with a revolving range of beers on the website.
All subject to thorough testing prior. That goes without saying.
