Wiper and True have always had a special relationship with The Hillgrove since it was the first pub to stock their beers. The brewery is also one of the most prominent supporters of Bristol Beer Week, so it makes sense for them to kick off the week with a massive party at the Hilly. This is what the Wiper team had to say:
This year we’ll be kicking off Bristol Beer Week with a tap takeover at The Hillgrove. We’ll have a range of our latest brews pouring including some casks packaged up especially for the event.
One of the beers in keg has been made on our pilot kit in honour of Bristol Beer Week. Giving a nod to Bristol’s industrial heritage, we’ve brewed a Tobacco Porter – contrary to what you might expect, tobacco extract imparts soft toffee and liquorice flavours which perfectly complement the robust coffee and chocolate tones of the Porter.
The Wiper and True team will be out in force and our brewers will be swapping the mash tun for the decks as they spin some tunes throughout the night. It’s Friday the 13th, what could go wrong!
