We’ve got some news…

After about 100 brews on our current kit since we launched in 2013 we’re now happy to announce that we’ll be expanding from our humble 2.5 BBL kit to a 6BBL kit!

Today has seen our last brew on our departing kit. Harry and Ben have spent their Saturday brewing “Fresh in Toon” so make sure you try this at our Brewery Bash. It’s a lovely fruity pale ale which we first launched for Freshers Week earlier this year therefore it’s a bit of a nice way to end the academic year! As well as this, the guys are also kegging Zest Tube: if you fancy picking a keg of this up contact Lucy and Harry over at sales@stubrew.com.

We’ve got an exciting few weeks lined up with the arrival of our new kit which we can’t wait to show off to you guys!

Weekly Blog 2 (21/05/2018): Not bad for a bunch of students…

We’ve had another productive week here at Stu Brew.

On Monday Evening Emily and Jack presented at the Pint of Science event at The Old George Inn! It was a very successful evening and was a great opportunity to explain the brewing processes to a very interested audience. We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who came and watched.

This week last year’s treasurer Harry has been busy making our cider, Copy & Paste, ready to serve another batch at our next Brewery Bash in June.  Also on the brewing calendar this week we’ve seen Chris and Arthur brewing True Wisdom which will be available in keg soon! Home Brew Club have also kept busy this week by continuing their work on a prototype of non-alcoholic Lab Session.

We received an exciting delivery this week which was the first sample of our NEW Stu Brew growlers. Although we’re in the process of altering the design here’s a sneak peak of the first sample. Our growlers have been designed in time for the upcoming graduation ceremonies here at Newcastle University and will be available for purchase at Graduation filled with Graduation Saison 2018 tied in a ribbon reflective of your faculty colours. They’ll also be on sale at our upcoming Brewery Bash.. but more about that later!

Upcoming events
We have a busy month of events organised at Stu Brew which means plenty of opportunity to try our selection of beers!

We’ll be bringing our latest collab with Errant, Combustible Lemons, along with a few others you might recognise. See the event page for more details. It will be a great few days!

We’ve also got another Brewery Bash planned on the 8th June which we can’t wait for! We love planning and running these back yard bashes which will once again be taking place in the car park of Merz Court. Our good friends at Sghetti Monster will be cooking up a storm. Join us for one final blow out before the summer! Find out more here: https://www.facebook.com/events/172784580099034/

Not bad for a bunch of students, ey?…. (see recent Untappd review)

Home Brew Club

One of the best ways to get involved with Stu Brew other than coming along to events such as our Brewery Bashes is to join our Home Brew Club.

Home Brew Club is ran by our Head Student Brewer Paulius. We meet up on average once a week to discuss and design recipes. It’s great to see recipes you have designed as a team being brewed on the Braumeister as prototypes.

In the past we’ve prototyped a Scottish Ale, Rhubarb Braggott which was made whilst we tested the effects of using two different strains of yeast to change the flavour. Also, we recently designed an APA called Cascade Diagram which was entered into CAMRA’s Battle of the Beers held at Northumbria Student’s Union.

Today Home Brew Club members Dan and Dom brewed a prototype for a non-alcoholic version of our core beer Lab Session.

The future projects we have planned include making and designing a prototype for a gluten free beer brewed from rice and millet. We’re always looking for new people to to join us! If our Home Brew Club sounds like something you’d fancy getting involved with please contact Paulius at p.rasiukas@newcastle.ac.uk who will be more than happy to answer any questions or queries.
