Invitations were handed out to other Liverpool region based breweries to come along and sell their small packaged beers directly to market goers. No one was really sure what to expect at the first market, but queues to get in at 11am and most breweries having to rush more stock across to Black Lodge's yard in the early afternoon was a welcome blush of success for the Market and a great indicator of people's will to support our local beer scene. The second market was much steadier, but still saw lots of beer, gin, gifts and pickles being taken away from King's Dock Street.
Members of our Committee also picked up a few beers, including the excellent Lekker Brew #Merseyfest Box, which went down a treat at their online festival the following weekend! The crew have decided to put together a special Christmas pack too, which is available from their site, here: lekkerbrew.com.
- Saturday 19th December 2020 // 11am until 5pm
Further details are yet to be released, but you will be able to get more by following Black Lodge and ourselves on social media for updates as details are added.
THE #LIVEBEERPUB WILL BE BACK!!!
Participants of the #livebeerpub initiative that we ran from March until July earlier this year can look forward to a session that will take place following the Brewer's Market on Saturday 19th December. To give everyone time to get home and allow the brewers to demobilise, we'll be looking to start the #livebeerpub at 7.30pm.
As ever, we'll have some kind of playlist ready for your aural pleasure. We shall also look to hold a quiz and hopefully get some contributions from brewers for the event to talk about those awesome beers you'll have picked up during the day!
We want you to get involved too - get on Twitter and share pictures of your Christmas beer haul from the Market or from any local Merseyside bar, pub or bottle shop, making sure you tag us at the Collective in!
Stay tuned - we shall update the details for this event as we get things sorted!!!
Take care everyone and #LIVEBEER xx
