Big Bank Holiday Weekend Friday Beer Launch Night

24 May @ 12:00 pm - 11:30 pm

On Friday, 24 May we have a massive night of beer launches, including the launch night of a brand new brewery!

The three events are:

Silent Brew Co launch with three keg beers from a brand new brewery in Buxton

Neon Raptor Operation Mayfly 24

Buxton Brewery Axe Edge rare cask launch

Silent Brew Co

Silent Brew Co are a new brewery in Buxton and we are one of the venues for their launch, with three small-batch keg beers.

You Can’t Take It With You 5.5% Hazy Pale
A sensory delight offering a perfect harmony of juicy tropical fruits, making it a refreshing and flavourful Pale Ale that’s perfect for any occasion. Mega hopped with Mosaic, Cashmere & El Dorado.

Hissing Prawn Destroyer 4% NE Pale
Citra & Idaho 7 New England Pale Ale. At 4.0% ABV, it offers a sessionable experience without compromising on flavour. Bursting with the bright citrusy notes of Citra hops and the tropical fruit character of Idaho 7, this brew delivers a juicy and aromatic punch. Its hazy appearance invites you to dive into a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, while its gentle bitterness adds a refreshing balance. Perfect for those craving a vibrant and easy-drinking pale ale packed with hoppy goodness.

Cocoa Utopia 6% Chocolate Fudge Stout
A luscious and indulgent Stout that delivers on its promise of chocolate fudge goodness, offering a perfect blend of rich flavours and creamy texture for a truly satisfying drinking experience.

Neon Raptor Operation Mayfly 24

It’s back and it’s bigger and better than before!

Neon Raptor aim to make this year’s Operation Mayfly the biggest and boldest mission they’ve ever tried by aiming for 100 venues, including The Bailey Head, to share in their May Bank Holiday celebration.

Operation Mayfly changes annually, this year they’re showcasing Eclipse and Citra Cryo hops for a sweet mandarin and bright citrus flavour.

The mission involves getting 100 venues to put this beer on sale from the 24 May and sell it out before the bank holiday weekend ends. This gives drinkers the chance to share a beer with friends from different cities and taste a beer at it’s ultimate freshness.

Tgey will also be running a competition for that weekend for customers to win prizes online. To enter they’ll have to scan a QR code that will be only found on the keg badge.

A great warm up for our Neon Raptor Tap takeover

Buxton Axe Edge Cask

Cask Buxton Axe Edge is a rare beast, having only been done in small quantities for their own bar in recent years. Breaking with tradition, they’ve decided to release a batch of Axe Edge casks.

AXE EDGE IPA 6.8% Their refreshingly hoppy, grapefruity flagship IPA is named after a moor close to England’s highest village, and was once roamed by some pretty edgy characters including counterfeiters, prize fighters and hawkers. And maybe still is.
