Nags Christmas Carols

Nags Christmas Carols

Saturday 22nd December 2018

Very happy to welcome back the South Berks Concert Band for another evening of Festive carols, probably including a 20 min version of 12 Parkinsons, as the Reading football bus will arrive back around half way through!


Carol sheets will be on the tables so there is no excuse not to sing your hearts out! Donations to Brass for Africa greatly appreciated.


Tree should be up,


Mulled Ciders and festive beers will be on,


Christmas will have begun!



Gary & Mark's December Quiz Night

Gary & Mark's December Quiz Night

Sunday 30th December 2018

Well what else are you going to do the night before New Years Eve?!


A quiet evening in the Nags doing Gary & Mark’s fantastically fun festive quiz sounds like the perfect way to spend the penultimate evening of 2018 to us…over a nice pint of Caribbean stout (Shhh!), in front of the Christmas tree, and no doubt a toasty log fire!


We didn’t raise that much for the Mind Charity last time out (partly because we forgot to advertise it!), so lets try and send Gary & Mark out of 2018 with a bang and thank them for their first full year of Nags Head quizzes



Siren Craft Keg Wall Takeover

Siren Craft Keg Wall Takeover

25th October

Siren Craft Brew will be taking over the keg wall with a selection of fine collaboration beers, showcasing the superb Project Barista 2018 range alongside other collaborations with some of the finest breweries, distilleries and roasters.

A few special casks will also be available on the night including the only available pin in the land of 'Mind on my Honey', and a remake of the first special we ever remember them brewing, 'Sweet Dream', a smooth lactose, chocolate & vanilla version of their now Champion Beer of Britain 'Broken Dream' (also available!)



Tiny Rebel Tap Takeover

Tiny Rebel Tap Takeover

12th July

Yep Tiny Rebel Brewing Co. will be taking over all 12 cask pumps, the keg wall, and Gary & Ra’s Bar in the Nags Legs with up to 30 different Tiny Rebel beers available, as well us a couple of ciders!


Here’s the potential list (subject to tiny changes!)





Morning Glory


Sertified Simcoe

Fugg Life

Citra Milkshake

Mosaic Milkshake

Nelson Sauvin Milkshake


Gin & Juice



Gin & Juice

Cherry Bomb

Don't Believe the Hype

Barrel Aged Dirty Stop Out

Stay Puft

Urban IPA

Chocolate Stay Puft






Clwb Tropicana



Peaches & Cream

Cheeky Vimto

There’s Always Honey in the Banana Stand

Imperial Stay Puft

Orange Mocha Frapp Stout (Fierce Beer Collab)

Diggeridank (Siren Craft Collab)

Pump Up The Jam



You'll notice that there are more than 30 beers on this list, and indeed most of them have been ordered twice, and some of them 3 or 4 times, meaning this will likely be a weekend long tap-takeover, certainly with most of the keg beers still being available during the World Cup Final.


There are also some very rare and special beers including all of Tiny Rebel's Birthday beers which will likely go quite quickly, so if you want to try the Fierce Beer or Siren Craft collaborations you'd probably best get here on the Thursday!
