Alex Boden, a previous committee member in Stu Brew, now works at Heineken and will be present at the event. He is a prime example of how involvement with Stu Brew can lead to exciting future career opportunities.

We can confirm that Manny’s Pizza (@mannyspizzadeli) will be serving at the bash, with a great combined member deal to be announced soon, following the successful food+pint deal for members at the Brewery Bash. There will be live music via Newcastle University’s Jazz Band at the event!

Stu Brew’s New Look

Over the next few weeks you may notice a few changes around here…

Our design team has been working alongside @thumbdesign to generate a new brand identity for Stu Brew. We feel this branding gives a stronger and more refined feel to Stu Brew’s image than the one we developed when we began two years ago.

We wanted to retain the idea of using a hop as the main part of the logo, whilst also introducing elements bringing a visual connection with Newcastle University. The end result forms the main part of the logo.stu_brew_icon_only

The typography used in the new logo is pipe-like, showing our ties to Chemical Engineering; our home here at Newcastle University.

We have also retained hop and malt flourishes within the logo, connecting everything to the science and art of brewing. We love our new look, and we hope you do too. Expect to see new look Stu Brew beers soon!

The Brewery Bash with @sghettimonstah: What a Night!

Yesterday, we held our Open Committee Meeting, before opening the doors of our brewery for our Brewery Party, where we served some of our great range of beers.

Yesterday evening also signalled the first time our new bar, made by students within the Architecture Department here at Newcastle University, was used within a Stu Brew tap event!

14694611_10154554081927071_1792982548_n

We offered our Red Brick, Extended Overdraught, True Wisdom, Breakfast Juice and Raspberry Blonde beers on tap, whilst also selling bottles of Red Brick and Extended Overdraught. It would be fair to say that all of our beers were enjoyed across the night! Loyalty Cards were issued at the bar during the event too!

Sghetti Monster provided brilliant food for everyone at the event in addition. The £3 membership deal (£3 credit at Sghetti Monster + pint at Stu Brew) also went down a treat amongst members at the event.

14694826_10154554081802071_1140007896_nI think it is safe to say that our Brewery Bash was a fantastic success, and everyone at Stu Brew hopes that those who attended had a great time.

Our next event will be our 2nd Birthday Bash, held at Newcastle University Students Union, next month. Further details will be released closer to the time.

We hope to see you all there. And don’t forget to bring your loyalty cards!

Christmas Craft Beer Event – 14th Dec

The new academic year has not even started yet but we’re already thinking about the end of term… We’ve got big things planned for this semester and today we are very excited to announce our Christmas Craft Beer Event which will be held exactly 3 months from today on Wednesday 14th December 2016 at The Venue in Newcastle University’s beautiful Students’ Union.

union-building

Over the past 9 months we’ve been looking into ways to lessen the impact of brewing on the environment thanks to a grant we received from the Institute for Sustainability. The event will be used to showcase what we’ve been doing here at Stu Brew to the North East Brewing Community. Following a short closed door event with local brewers and key stakeholders we will be opening the doors of the event to the public and having a bit of a beer festival. This will be a great opportunity to get hold of some last minute bottle packs and merchandise before the holidays.

A number of local breweries have already signed up to the event, including:

With plenty more to be announced before the event we’re sure it is going to be a fantastic day, so save the date in the diary now and keep an eye on our website for further updates in the coming weeks.

Cheers!

The Stu Brew Team
