On a brighter note, there has been some very good interest amongst various breweries that would love to help.
Third Barrel - would be able to have us in to brew, work out the details later
Rye River - would be able to help us with ingredients, again, work out the details later
Wicklow Wolf - interested, waiting to hear back
Rascals - interested, waiting to hear back
Whiplash - interested, waiting to hear back
Have yet to hear back from Galway Bay, Blacks, Trouble, Dot Brew, and O Brother. I only picked these due to who I thought might be able to get us in. If there are any others that anyone thinks I should get in touch with please don't hesitate to let me know.
Hi All, hope everyone is doing okay given the circumstances of late. So update on the Andrew Moore tribute beer...
Third Barrel have offered to work with us on a recipe, and will have us in to brew.
Rye River has offered help with ingredients.
Alex at Whiplash has also offered help but looks like the brewery is at capacity, so unsure right now if it is help with ingredients or other.
Blacks, O Brother, Galway Bay, and Wicklow Wolf offered help but haven't returned any emails yet.
Finally, Emma and Cathal at Rascals offered to brew us a Brown Ale on their pilot kit (250L) and package it in kegs or mini-kegs.
So what we need to decide is -
A: Do we go with Third Barrel and brew there with ingredients by Rye River, Whiplash, etc, and figure out packaging
B: Have Rascals do it
Let's try and get a decision made by this time next week so that I can get the plan out.
