Since launching them during Lockdown in late April, our 5-litre mini casks – wee ‘barrels of joy’ as one of our customers called them – have been flying out of the brewery, tucked into bicycle panniers and car boots or packed into boxes for delivery across the UK.
As we said in our blog a few weeks ago, for many of us takeaway sales are literally a lifeline at the moment.
But there’s a lot of confusion out there about whether the current restrictions allow you to pick up draught beer from your local brewery and pub – or not.
In Scotland, it’s perfectly straightforward to call in to your local to buy takeaway, fresh draught beer. In England (sorry people) it isn’t.
Can’t make up your mind which of our beers you like best? Or perhaps you’ve never tried them and aren’t sure which to order, first?
Well rest easy: we’ve sorted your dilemna. Order one of our mixed case taster packs and you’ll get three of each of our award-winning core-range, beers.
With lockdown continuing across the central belt of Scotland and beyond, local independent breweries are struggling.
We have lost all our business from pubs, bars and restaurants (again) and our taprooms (those that have them) are closed. We all make amazing beers, our breweries add to the character and personality of our City and between us, we employ dozens of local people.
The evenings may be drawing in and your mood may be a little gloomy with local lockdowns and pubs shut, but we’ve got some news to share that we hope will cheer you up.
We’ve got two new beers coming in cans in mid November.
Watching the daily figures going up across the UK these last few weeks, we can’t say we were surprised by this week’s news of new restrictions.
But it’s a sad day nonetheless for all of us who are brewing beer or running licensed premises and trying to keep our businesses running and our teams together.
Thirst Craft. the strategic drinks consultancy in Glasgow, worked with Bellfield over the last 12 months to develop our new branding. Here Matt Burns, Creative Director, talks about how they approached our brief.
