There is a lot going on at Errant and we like to talk about it. A lot. If you want to know what we're rambling on about, keep checking out our blog and we'll keep you up to date on the goings-on the Errant brewery. If you want to shout back at us, pop in on Facebook or Twitter. 

Twirling round with this familiar parable

2018 is going to be a big one. We've decided. So with that in mind, what better than to start it on a high with a massive IPA. Introducing: Parabola. A mind-altering brew of Amarillo and Ekuanot hops. Playing heavily on notes of citrus, papaya, pine and fresh peppers, it's a fresh IPA guaranteed designed to take you to a whole new plane of existence. 

Since it's #Tryanuary and all, we thought it would be a capital idea to launch our new IPA at one of our favourite boozers in Newcastle, the Split Chimp. Kicking off on Tuesday the 23rd of Jan. If you're in the area; or even if you're not, get yourselves down to the Split Chimp, say hello and experience Parabola for yourselves!

Beer and biscuits anyone?

As you may be aware, we love a good mental Christmas beer. This year is no exception, in fact our idea was that insane that we had to call in a couple of a favours. Enter Pete from Drygate and Emily from StuBrew. Together we've created the Biscuit of Burden.

An Imperial Mild with seven kinds of malt and a boat load of crushed up biscoff caramelised biscuit. It's been liberally sampled in the brewery already and I can confirm it's tasting incredible. Heavy on the malt and incredibly rich, it's the very definition of a winter warmer.

We'll be launching this beast at the Town Mouse Ale House on Thursday 14th of December, alongside a host of new and interesting beers from all three breweries. We've got some insane beers lined up for it and some moderate quality banter, so watch this space.

It's that time again...

It's been another year and that can only mean it's time again for Craft Beer Calling! Some of the biggest names in brewing are descending on the Toon once more and we're planning on welcoming them in style. If you're in Newcastle next Friday or Saturday, swing by our taproom and test drive some of our newest brews. Including the only keg in existence of our brand spanking new Leviathan IPA, soon to be released in 440ml cans just in time for Christmas.

We've also got a host of returning favourites, new beers and top ales from top friends. All in all it should be a top knees-up. Keep an eye on our website for the full bar list and opening times!

Errant Taproom!

We've been threatening it for ages, but finally it's here! The Errant taproom is a-go! 

After months of blood, sweat, tears, battered hands and broken tools, we're proud to invite you into the home of Errant brewery. Come visit us, have some beers, see how we make it, ask us mental questions! 

Next weekend we'll be open from 1600 till 2300 on Friday and 1300 till 2300 on Saturday for special sneak-preview of our taproom before we open full time in a couple of weeks. 

Come say hello!

Big News, Big Beer

It's been a little while since we last updated you on the insanity at the Errant brewhouse, and so we've got a lot to cover. 

First, we've got two new beers hitting pubs very soon. First up is the return of our perennially popular Rooibos Ruby, Crystal Skull. Brewed with a blend of Newcastle legends Quilliam Bros' finest Rooibos tea and five unique hops, it's a super fruity brew designed to blow your mind. Forget everything you knew about beer. 

Second is a brand-spanker NZPA by the name of B82rez. Pronounced Batteries, it's a timesaving brew with a whole host of New Zealand's finest hops. In a wave of super fruity New Englander's B82rez is a unashamed super floral, super herbal pale ale at the perfectly sessionable ABV of 3.9%.

Last but not least, we've got big news on the home front. As the more astute of you may have noticed, we moved location a couple of months ago and since then, we've been radio-silent and busily working away on our shiny new taproom. We've been cooking on gas, hammering, sawing, nailing and generally DIYing together what we think is a kick-ass bar. Keep an eye on the horizon for an opening date coming very soon!

Til next time sports fans.
