The Beer Merchants Tap opening date!

They said it couldn't be done – well, we did – but we have pulled out all the stops and are delighted to say that we are opening the Beer Merchants Tap full-time from Saturday 24th of February.

It's been a lot of work but a lot of fun and we can't wait for you to see our amazing line up of fridges and 700-strong bottle list, all 20 taps and 2 cask lines perfectly kept and pouring world-class beers. We've got a deli counter, soon to be loaded with artisan cheeses, meats and fresh salads. We've lined the walls with amazing artwork from our favourite breweries and artists, as well as classic Belgian tin signs and neons. We'll be releasing photos, tap lists, bottle lists and more as they are finalised, so keep an eye on our social feeds and the website.

If all that sounds too good to wait for, we're happy to say there are opportunities to see it early! All our investors will get exclusive access to the pub on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd February to start spending their bar tabs, but you can join them on those nights from 8pm when we open the to the public as part of our soft launches. On top of that, we're also hosting a one off tap takeover with the one and only Half Acre Beer Co on the preceding Saturday, with four of their best pale beers on tap next to lots of other hoppy numbers. The pledge discounts won't be ready for that event, but everyone is welcome to come down, see the Tap and indulge in some of America's absolute best beers.

So to sum up, here are some very important dates for your diaries, and if you have any questions just email

Saturday 17th February - Half Acre Tap takeover (10am to 10pm)
Thursday 22nd February - Pledge Party (5pm to 8pm) then open to the public
Friday 23rd February - Pledge Party (5pm to 8pm) then open to the public
Saturday 24th - Officially open (10am to 11.30pm)
