Brewsters Assemble!

We’re back again with our weekly update. This week is looking exciting! Let’s have a look at what we’ve got going on.

This week we featured in the Education section of the Guardian! It was great to meet Naomi Larsson and we really enjoyed reading the article. You can read the article here. A big thanks for the lovely write up, Naomi!

The first North East festival celebrating women in the brewing industry is coming to Newcastle this week. We’re going to be hosting the bar for the symposium that is happening on Thursday evening. It’s going to be held in Venue, the space underneath the Student’s Union, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm.

The Symposium will be a panel discussion, where each panelist will spend around 10 minutes discussing their experiences, and a subject of their choice. We will then spend around 30 minutes discussing topics such as sexism in the beer industry, what we’ve done to combat it, and what we can do better. Finally, we will then have a Q & A where the audience can ask the panelists questions. Special guests include Melissa Cole and Julia Austin. There will also be an event at the The Town Mouse on 7-10 March to celebrate and showcase women in the beer industry. This festival is designed to highlight women in brewing, bars, and everything beer, and to celebrate their achievements. It’s worth noting that every ticket for the symposium comes with a free pint of our beer! What’s not to love?

We’ve got our hands on a new piece of kit. As many of you know, Stu Brew are strongly supported by the School of Engineering and it’s now the time of year where our research projects in the school are underway. This week saw the arrival of the dealcoholization unit. Keep an eye out for the results of the research sometime soon.

Finally our secretary, Harry, was joined by a couple of members; Harsh and Cameron on a brew day on Sunday. They brewed Lady Liberty which is a beer we brewed exclusively for Pacific House. To try this get down to the wonderful Pacific House who will pull you through a pint… or two!

That’s all from us for this week. Have a GREAT week!

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:
