With Buxton Brewery (ENG) Founder Geoff Quinn and Three Weavers Brewing (US) Brewmaster Alexandra Nowell featuring a host of releases across 10 Taps
Derbyshire’s Buxton Brewery is one of a new wave of English breweries going beyond ‘taking back’ styles that the US have made their own over the last 40-odd years by adopting a truly global outlook to brewing – and in doing so have brewed beers recognised as some of the best in the world. Adventurous and prolific, Buxton’s inventive approach to brewing is akin to the legendary gypsy brewers whose beers they often produce (such as Omnipollo and To ØL), releasing some 40 new beers a year.
“The likes of Axe Edge could make up 80% of total output but that this would simply be a bit boring. Most brewers do 60/70% of their totals with one beer. Beavertown has Gamma Ray and BrewDog has Punk IPA but we’re not happy repeating things. We enjoy trying new beers.”
Founded by Lynne Weaver in 2013 with the mission to create a community through beer, California’s Three Weavers has enjoyed phenomenal growth – making serious waves in hometown LA, in what is the largest beer market in the US. Brewmaster Alexandra Nowell earnt her stripes at some of the best Breweries in the country including Moylan’s, Drakes and the iconic Sierra Nevada – and has two GABF medals to her name in addition to a World Beer Cup Gold for Three Weavers Red Imperial Ale, "Blood Junkie." Brewing tight, technical, delicious beers and with a penchant for IPAs, The Weavers are set to become part of the fabric of communities well beyond the city of angels…
