Drink Your Five A Day! (London Beer City Event)

"Fruit and vegetables are part of a healthy, balanced diet and can help us stay healthy. It's important that we eat enough of them"

We all need more fruit and veg in our life, but don't limit yourself to just eating them. Why not enjoy them in your beer!

Phill and Steph from Caps and Taps will be guiding you through five different beers that contain fruit and vegetables! Expect the likes of raspberry infused Guezue, Grapefuit IPAs, Mushroom Sours & Fig Barleywines.

We will provide a lovely wrapped up box, coloured tissue papers and numbered stickers. You come in and pick 24 (or 25...) beers that you think your loved one will enjoy. We'll then give you 20% off your purchase and a free beer to drink whilst you wrap up and sticker the beers.

If you can't make that day or don't want the responsibility of making the beer decisions we are also offering to pre make Advent Calendars based on what styles of beers people love and despise so that they don't get a dud beer in their selection, send us an email to find out more.

Then we will be sharing Local 2, Sorachi Ace, Black Ops and Improved Old Fashioned. There will be some Brooklyn Brown Ale Banana bread and some meats and cheese to eat as well.
