Can you believe it, the Siren Tap Yard is nearly two! It’s been a crazy two years filled with beers, events, food, dogs and a colossal road closure (thanks, South East Water). We’ve loved every minute.
We thought it would be a good time to let you know about some big changes, improvements, expansions and, of course, exciting new beers coming up, not to mention another great weekend of Street Food.
We are once again expanding Tap Yard opening hours! When we started, we only opened on Fridays and Saturdays. Due to demand, we are now open from Wednesday through to Sunday. Once again, we’ve listened to the will of the people and will be open later each day, from 12 – 9 during the week and 12 – 8 on Sundays! Cosy winter evenings are coming your way.
One of the most exciting recent updates to the Tap Yard came in the form of our pizza cabin, providing fresh pizza made on site. After an initial few months of trialling, and listening to feedback, we’re ready for a soft re-launch of the menu.
As of this week, the pizza bases are vegan friendly. We have some updated menu changes, as well as the start of a pizza of the month. The first features a red pesto base and feta and it’s absolutely delicious.
Not only that, we’re expanding the food option to include a variety of paninis, which will also include some drink-and-a-snack deals at lunchtimes.
Last week we welcomed in some cocktail specialists, who spent a day with our team creating a variety of Siren beer blended cocktails. These included a Broken Dream breakfast stout espresso martini and a Calypso dry-hopped sour with raspberry gin. We’re still working on the details, but we hope to have a permanent beer-themed cocktail list available in 2020.
This weekend we’re celebrating the new longer hours with another awesome line-up of street food vendors.
On Saturday, “Tapas or Tap Out” bring their gorgeous tapas dishes, with things like Potato Bravas, Chorizo Sausage and Salt and Chilly Chicken. Smaller dishes, idea to snack out on with an afternoon of great beers.
Then on Sunday, our friends from Makan Malaysia return with their incredible Malaysian menu.
We’ll have a brand new 4% Hazy Pale Ale pouring, Suspended in Lemondrop, so why not come along and pair your food with that?
Caribbean Chocolate Cake
Last but by no means least, Caribbean Chocolate Cake returns this month! For those who haven’t heard of it, this beer started out as a collaboration beer with Cigar City Brewing from the US. It’s an unctuous, thick stout that features bags of Cacao nibs and flavours of wood.
Every year, we brew a new batch and it never lasts long. We have 4 different versions,to be announced on the Siren Craft Brew blog on November 12 – follow @SirenCraftBrew on Twitter for early announcements.
The beers go live nationwide, the Tap Yard and on the Siren webshop on Thursday, November 28.
Act fast and save Saturday 30th November for some chocolate-themed fun at the Tap Yard!
