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. 

Taprooms, Beers, and Endless Paperwork

Our taproom has been something that we’ve been passionate about opening for a long time, and it’s something that more than a few of you have been asking us about repeatedly. We’ve been quietly working away in the background to try and make the dream a reality, but unfortunately have met a couple of stumbling blocks along the way. 

During the process of filing for our final premises license we’ve found ourselves in discussion with our landlords about how best to make our humble road safe for our drinkers when they enter and leave our property. Sadly until we can come to a sensible arrangement with them, they won’t let us have the taproom open as often as we’d like. 

For now, we’re going try to move to an events-based open schedule, so expect to see something big from us every month or so while we try and iron out the kinks in our license. Hopefully in time, we can come back to you with the boozy front-room every Saturday that we’ve always dreamt of, until then, please bear with us while we jump through all the hoops we can.

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!
