Social Thursday 28th March - Beer Guerrilla 7:30pm onwards with the option of a Curry or something afterwards..
The team have nagged me into going again... so we're heading back to see what's new.
So, on Thursday 28th we will be getting together at the Beer Guerrilla to sample some of their wonderful beers. There is every chance that after a few drinks, some of us may wander up the road and enjoy a curry too!
Beer Guerrilla is a local, independent, family run business. They showcase small breweries and producers who value quality over quantity. Beer is a far more varied drink than many people realise, and they introduce the uninitiated to that fact, because if you think you don’t like beer, they bet we can find a brew for you.
They stock a huge range of beers from around the world. After all, variety is the spice of life. They’ve got IPA’s, Pale Ales, Sours, Lambics, Saisons, Red Ales, Stouts, Porters, Fruit Beers, Wheats, Belgian Tripels & Quads. Plus, Real Ale in bottles. With that amount of choice, they are confident that we can find a beer to suit anyone’s taste, and a beer to suit every occasion.
In addition to their great range of bottles and cans, they have draught and cask beers too. They can pour you a small Craft Beer to sip while you shop, or just to relax with after a hard day.
You can see more at their website - www.beerguerrilla.co.uk
The Beer Guerrilla is located at 227 Wellingborough Rd, Northampton NN1 4EF
Hopefully, we’ll see some of you there.
