Thornbridge & Double-Barrelled pump & tap takeover

Thornbridge & Double-Barrelled pump & tap takeover

2nd December 2022

Thornbridge were one of the original breweries to step up the real ale game and start experimenting with hops and styles of beer that were "a bit more interesting" using only the best ingredients, brewing kit and techniques long before, and arguably the definition of the term "craft beer"

 

Double-Barrelled Brewery were founded right at the other end of the craft beer revolution with a vision to making the best sour beers and imperial stouts on the market. Having realised fairly quickly that this probably wasn't a viable business on its own they branched out into the pale ale game and now make some of the best, fruitiest, piney IPAs on the market. Their sours are up there with the best and having just turned 4 years old their barrel aged stout game has just entered the scene and is fast making its mark competing with some of the best in the business

 

Next Friday 2nd December sees Thornbridge take over all 12 of our handpumps with a huge selection of different beer styles in the cask format, whilst their and our good friends Double-Barrelled take over the keg wall with a selection of top notch IPA's, sours, and a couple of special imperial stouts

 

 

 


Collabageddon 2022

Collabageddon 2022

18th November 2022

We are very proud to again be hosting Elusive Brewing's 6th (technically 5th cos, you know ??) iconic Collabageddon 2022 beer festival...which starts right now next week ??

 

For those of you that don't know how it works, Elusive's owner, Andy Parker (the nicest man in brewing) picks 11 of his bestest brewing pals (no mean feat) and then they all draw straws and team up in pairs to brew one beer at each brewery culminating in 12 unique and delicious collaborative beers from 12 of the best (or certainly nicest) breweries in the land

 

These are then sold at 24 of Andy's favourite craft beer bars or pubs across the land for one night only (possibly more) of craft beer collaboration shenanigans

Or something like that anyway...for more information on beers, breweries and venues read Andy's blog here:

15th Birthday Party

15th Birthday Party

19th February 2022

Next weekend sees the Nags (as we now know it) turn 15 years old......

FIFTEEN!!!

 

There are arguments amongst us as to whether it's been "a lifetime" or a "Where did the time go" situation?! But either way we're all pretty damn proud to be celebrating another anniversary at last......and we're going to have a party!!

Beers, BBQ's and Birthday Quizzes is the gist of it...read on for more info on the 3B's: No room for any live music this year unfortunately, however if beer is your thing, and we assume it probably is, then you're going to have a good time!

Our keg wall will be taken over by the New Zealand Beer Collective who are currently celebrating NZ beer month and will feature rare beers from the likes of Yeastie Boys, 8 WIRED BREWING, Deep Creek Brews and Eats, Urbanaut Brewing Co, and @Kereru.

 

Plus our 6 new keg taps will serving special beers that we and various brewers have saved for the occasion, including:

Sonar Biscuit: A special birthday beer brewed by the Nags Head at Elusive Brewing with help from owner Andy Parker living up to his name as The Nicest Man in Brewing! And Ruth feeding us copious amounts of croissants, chocolate brownies and pizza

A Link to the Past: An apt name for a 15 year anniversary is this Double West Coast IPA, a Collaboration between the amazing Elusive Brew and the amazing A Hoppy Place in Windsor.

Philly Cheesecake: Been saving this one for our good friend Gavin, formally of Hopcraft Brewery, cos he loves Philadelphia (the place, not the cheese) and cheesecake, and we both share a love of good sour beers. High hopes for this one as it's brewed by Orbit Brewing , who also brew the legendary Tzatziki Sour.

Caribbean White Chocolate Pancake Stack: Saved back from this year's Project Barista festival by Siren Craft. Weirdly with a name like that this beer needs no explanation, it does what it says on the tin.

Superuser: Andy Parker got to tick one off his bucket list by getting to brew at the legendary Thornbridge Brewery. Both breweries have a love of red IPA's with Thornbridge's Colorado Red being the beer that inspired Andy to win the Craft Beer Co's home brew competition before going on to use the winnings to start up one of our and our regulars favourite breweries...Elusive! It is of course, a red IPA... A Super red IPA!

Dark & Perilous Nights: Another beer from Siren's back catalogue, this Barrel Aged Imperial Dark Ale is Siren's highest ever scoring beer on Untappd, quite the achievement if you know the quality of Siren beers. You won't find this beer anywhere else anytime soon, it has been specially kegged from their barrel store for our birthday

 

Right, now that we've bored you all silly, what else do you need to know?

 

Cal's BBQ will be rolling all day serving up his amazing Wagyu Beef Burgers, Vicar's Hot Dogs, Chu's Spicey Chicken, and Ra's Smokey Baked Potatoes Talks:

Brewery talks from.........na we're just kidding! Plenty of brewing celebrities will be in attendance though who we're sure will be happy for a chat if that's your thing

Sunday: Gary & Mark's Charity Fun Quiz - A special birthday quiz featuring many Nags Head themed questions finishing off the weekend nicely

Vibrant Forest 10th Anniversary Beers

Vibrant Forest 10th Anniversary Beers

12th November 2021

Coinciding with Cloudwater’s Together Again event thanks to 6 brand new keg lines:

Vibrant Forest turned 10 in August this year and we managed to get a keg of each beer which we have been saving for a special occasion ever since…and what better occasion than the christening of our 6 brand new keg lines?

 

Here's a few words from Vibrant:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
WOW! This year we turn 10!!

 

To celebrate 10 years of Vibrant Forest Brewery the team have been very busy brewing 6 brand new and very special beers to release at our 10 Year Gathering on August 7. We are thrilled with how all of these have turned out!

 

Now, onto the beers themselves:

 

#1 Imperial Pupa 8% ABV
It was always going to be hard to resist brewing a version of our best selling beer, Pupa, so we did it, of course! We have literally doubled the amount of hops which have gone into this and the extra body from the ABV helps balance all this citrus glory.
Supa Pupa?

 

#2 Talus IPA 6.4% ABV
Lashings of Talus hops take centre stage in this IPA. A huge whack of Wheat and Spelt malt form a thick base upon which citrus, tropical fruit and hints of coconut sit comfortably. Ludicrously good!

 

#3 West Coast IPA 6.5% ABV
Classic West Coast hops Ahtanum and Chinook dominate. Citrusy, piney and big on bitterness with Idaho 7 adding a nice twist to the glass

 

#4 Red IPA 6.4% ABV
This one is all about a little sweet malt from specially selected grains and big citrus hops from bundles of Simcoe and Centennial. An under-rated style which we absolutely love!

 

#5 Cucumber & Mint Sour 4.5% ABV
Huge summer sour refreshment loaded with cucumber and a delicate addition of fresh mint. Tangy, refreshing and of course, cool

 

#6 Kviek Nelson Sauvin Pale 5% ABV
Nelson is one of our favourite hops so it simply had to make it into the 6th and last of our special birthday beers. Fermented at a whopping 38C using Kveik yeast and heaps of Nelson Sauvin.
Freshly crushed Gooseberries & Grapes lead the way with with some citrus notes from the Kveik.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Plus to fill the wall up we also have a couple of kegs of Vibrant’s Simcoe pale ale ‘Perimeters’, and a couple of kegs of Vibrant’s hazy IPA ‘Summer of Sundays’ brewed with Azacca and Sabro

 

 

 

 


Cloudwater Together Again

Cloudwater Together Again

12th November 2021

Yep tap-takeovers are back again and this one sees the big boys of premier league craft beer, Cloudwater Brew Co take over our keg taps to showcase their Together Again series, a selection of collaboration brews between Cloudwater and some of their best friends in the business, including our favourite local brewery, Elusive:

 

Imperial Smoked Baltic Porter, Cloudwater x Donzoko - A rich Imperial Baltic Porter brewed with a portion of smoked malts and given some small 'pastry' additions.

 

Red IPA, Cloudwater x Elusive - A truly red Red IPA which combines both classic and modern hops.

 

Hibiscus and Raspberry Stout, Cloudwater x Rock Leopard - An export strength stout given a twist through additions of raspberry and hibiscus.

 

TIPA, Cloudwater x Rivington - A big juicy TIPA dry hopped with Strata and Sabro

 

Table Beer, Cloudwater x Runaway x Squawk - An NZ-hopped Table Beer fermented with Voss Kveik yeast.

 

Modern West Coast DIPA, Cloudwater x Wild Horse - an NZ-hopped DIPA in the West Coast Haze style.

.

 

The table beer will also be available in cask for you to see the subtle difference between cask and keg beer

 

Read more here:

https://cloudwaterbrew.co/together-again

 

or watch a video here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHjxTGQoG_Q

.

 

We are still seeking out a chiller to get our new 6 keg lines working and are nearing a solution meaning there is a possibility that this could turn into a joint tap-takeover with favourite localish brewery Vibrant Forest Brewery...details to follow once we get the taps commissioned.

 

 

 


Reading Half Marathon

Reading Half Marathon

7th November 2021

The 35th Reading Half Marathon will take place this Sunday, and we will be opening our doors at 10am as usual for a few early beverages. Fancy dress, silly hats, and musical (or not so musical) instruments all encouraged to cheer on the runners as they pass the coveted 8K Nags Head Beer Stop, this year sponsored by Siren Craft Brew

All runners returning to the Nags will also be entitled to a well earned half pint of Siren if they show us their medal And if you're a sports fan Arsenal will also be playing Watford at 2pm and West Ham playing Liverpool at 4:30pm, plus the Mexican F1 grand prix in the evening along with the usual NFL Red Zone.

Everyone should sleep well Sunday night!

 

 


The Football Bus is back!

The Football Bus is back!

30th October 2021

 

Yes, while we are still dubious about sticking customers on a big metal tube together in these times it has come to our attention that our customers are all walking into town together and getting on a big metal tube from the station instead, which is arguably less safe than us running our own bus!

 

So from this Saturday the Nags Head Footy bus will be leaving Russell Street at 19:15, straight after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer loses his job at Man Utd, arriving at the Mad Stad in time for a quick pint, hot dog, pee, or any other preference you may have, returning after the match from the same place you got off it, and returning to the Nags just in time for Match of the Day.

 

Closing hours are now back to normal (last orders 23:50) although the garden will be closed from 11pm

 

Unfortunately the price of tickets have had to go up to make it viable but we still think £5.00 return is a pretty good deal for door to door. beer to beer service!
 
 
If all goes well the football bus will be available for all weekend home matches
 
 
Come on URZ ?
 

 

(It's not really that bus ?)

 

 


Gary & Mark's Charity Fun Quiz

31st October 2021

Takeaway Beer

Lockdown November 2020

TIERS FOR BEERS
 
We might be ending this crazy year in the 4th Tier...but the Nags are still offering takeout beer:
 
Which from today will be DOOR STEP DELIVERY within a 5 mile radius.
 
All beer will be delivered by ourselves in our own private vehicle and all containers sanitised before filling and upon delivery.
 
Please ignore the delivery slots...Orders before 13:30 will be delivered the same afternoon/evening between 14:30 and 18:30, orders after 13:30 may be delivered the following afternoon/evening between 14:30 and 18:30
 
Real Ale can be delivered in free 2.5L plastic containers, or in NEW Limited Edition Nags Head/Siren Craft stainless steel growlers.
 
Beer from the keg wall is recommended to be delivered in stainless steel growlers only so as to keep the beer properly carbonated.
 
Growers cost £20 for the small 1 litre version, or £25 for the large 2.5 litre version...and would make excellent Christmas presents, especially if full of beer!
 
Fresh casks on today include 'Fairytale of Brew York' from BrewYork, and 'Lumina' from Sirencraftbrew, along with other offferings from Delphic and Vibrant Forest
 
For full tasting notes and prices per litre see our websites:
 
 
Over 300 litres of real ale tapped and ready to go
 
Let's do our best for Christmas Tiers, Christmas Beers and Christmas Cheers...there's a rhyme there somewhere but right now...we've got beer to deliver! ????????

El Pony Pisador + The Longest Johns LIVE

El Pony Pisador + The Longest Johns LIVE

Thursday 19th March 2020

Hoist yer mainsails! Two of the best young Shanty Folk groups around will be joining together for a show in the illustrious Nags head, Reading. Come and join us for a Thursday of sailing songs, rapid paced folk and enough great beer to drown even the most haggard sailors' sorrows!

El Pony Pisador (Transalation; The Prancing Pony) is a group of five young guys from Barcelona that mix traditional music from all over the world with a lively and carefree style. They like Celtic folk music and sea shanties, but you will find sounds from many different places. They dig deep into the music they discover to please both curious first-time listeners and ardent experts.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNmtZztLi6M

I doubt any of Bristol's The Longest Johns ever imagined they would be able to get so far on just four voices. In a few short years they have gone from singing sea shanties in a kitchen to International folk festivals, tours, TV appearances and gained a huge online following.

https://youtu.be/kCAUaRFxC_g

Joining them in support will be some upsettingly familiar faces you're sure to recognise from around the pub, delivering their own questionable brand of folksy entertainment to whet your appetites before the pros take the helm and show us how it's done.

FREE ENTRY (But there may well be a hat pass 'cause musicians need to eat too)

Kicking off around 19:30!


Nags Head 13th Birthday

Nags Head 13th Birthday

Dodge, Dip, Duck And Dulce - ‘Dulce de Leche Pastry Stout’ - 11%
Here Gose Nothing - ‘Imperial Blackcurrant Pastry Gose’ - 8%

Screwface - ‘Sicilian Lemon Sour’ - 4.2%
 
Holy Hand Grenade - ‘Sabro & Nelson Sauvin NEIPA’ - 6.8%
Paradise City - ‘Loral & Mosaic NEIPA’ - 6.8%
 
But hey, feel free to have a bit of fun and blend them however you like…or just don’t blend them at all!
 
Or don’t drink them at all and just stick to the dozens of nice ales on offer…or the dozens of nice ciders on offer…or just have a nice pilsner…we honestly don’t really mind…maybe we’ll order some MD 20/20 in ??
 
Anyway the long and short of it is we are entering our teens…we intend have a bit of fun…and you’re all invited!
 
Hopefully see you Wednesday (don’t forget it’s a school night...home by midnight)
