We’ve been taking The Original Small Beer on the road and catching up with friends across the trade to find out about their perfect Small Beer Moments. Stay tuned as this list grows with familiar faces and new discoveries over the coming days, weeks and months!
Got the perfect occasion for a Small Beer? We’d love to hear about your #smallbeermoments
"I LOVE THE FAMILIARITY OF IT, AS A BARTENDER IT'S SOMETHING I'VE ALWAYS DONE..."
“For me a great beer after a great shift is a time to decompress. I love the familiarity of it, as a bartender it's something I've always done, but with the added responsibility of running my own place I know a couple of 5%ers slow me down at close up, and isn't going to do me much good when I'm back in first thing that following day. Small Beer is perfect for that, I get all of the enjoyment with none of the compromise.”
"TRYING TO KEEP MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT"
"I'm my own boss, and I'm out a lot, but if I'm hosting a gin journey the next day, yeah I want to socialise, but I'm trying to keep my head on straight. I love a dark beer, so the 1% dark lager for me is ideal and the Small Beer stubbies are nostalgic, it's takes me back to those summers holidaying with the family in France."
"THE PERFECT REFRESHMENT AFTER THE HEAT OF THE KITCHEN"
"I'll sit down religiously at the end of an evening and write tomorrow's menu, it's my bit of down time. We work closely with a number of local suppliers, so I'll always double-check what the likes of Flock & Herd, our brilliant local butcher, just round the corner, are sending me the following day. A Small Beer lager for me is the perfect refreshment after the heat of the kitchen, and it means I don't miss a beat when putting together tomorrow's offering."
"WORRY FREE ENJOYMENT..."
"We love getting together as a team after nailing a busy shift, and it's so nice to be able to chat about the highs & lows of it over a drink. A Small Beer's perfect for me, particularly in the week, it's like worry free enjoyment and means I can have a couple while catching up with my work friends."
