The Docks Beers Update

August 2021

For all the latest brewery and taproom news

How is it August already? There’s been plenty going on at the Church of Beer.

We’ve added a few new faces to the team (more on one of them later), we have opened a container bar at Grimsby Town FC and we’re gearing up to release our latest series of WIP and our eagerly anticipated collab beer with The Sherlocks – keep an eye on your inbox and social media so you don’t miss when they drop. There will be more on all these stories in September’s newsletter.

First up, here is news about Docks Beers gaining a listing in a major grocery chain…

How is it August already?

First up, here is news about Docks Beers gaining a listing in a major grocery chain…

DOCKS IN THE CO-OP


Last month we landed a deal with the Co-op which sees Overtime, Never Say Die and Mangoverboard on the shelves of Co-op’s regional stores in Lincolnshire including Barton-upon-Humber, Cleethorpes and beyond!

This is a great step forward for Docks Beers in our third year of business and is a real cause for celebration as we emerge from the pandemic in growth.

Another milestone was reached last week. While Sam was busy racking yet another brew of Cleethorpes Pale Ale, we realised that it was the 800th brew we’ve made since opening the doors of our parent company Axholme Brewing Co in 2012. At this rate, it won’t be too long to wait until it’s our 1,000th brew. We are planning something extra special for that.

DOCKS ON HOLIDAY

After the year we’ve had, you’re probably thinking about getting away this summer.

Whether it’s a trip to the beach, camping in the hills or just a weekend away somewhere nice, don’t forget to take Docks Beers with you. From 6 packs to mixed packs, mini casks and spirits, we’ve got what you need to make your trip that little bit better… whatever the weather decides to do.

And while you are away, post snaps of your Docks Beers and merch around the UK and if it’s on socials make sure you include the hashtag #DocksonTour. We will pick a photo at random at the end of August and the winner will get a £30 voucher to spend online.

Rory Lynch - newest member of the Docks Beers brewing team

OUR NEW BREWER

We are delighted to introduce Rory Lynch who is the newest member of the Docks Beers brewing team.

Rory has brewed some outstanding beers in the past, most recently for Crafty1 in Grimsby and he even had his own brewery in New Zealand called Crooked Concept. Rory likes to experiment with new beer recipes and is a regular home brewer. He tends to go for the dry and bitter session beers, and if stuck on a desert island he’d choose Saison Dupont. But his Docks Beer of choice is our Overtime Craft Lager.

Rory says his aim is “To bring some of what I have learned on my travels back to Grimsby, and make the best damn beer we can”. We can’t wait for you to taste some of the new beers that he’s already started brewing.

DOCKS AT GTFC

After many hours of hard graft, we opened our container bar at Grimsby Town Football Club’s new Mariners Trust fan zone for James McKeown’s testimonial.

Stu, Sid and Sam were at Blundell Park dishing out the pints to fans who stayed behind for the beer and food festival which took place after the Rotherham game.

It was great to see Docks Beers on sale at our local football club and we’re looking forward to the container being open for every matchday during the 2021-22 season… starting on Saturday 28th August against Weymouth.

Remember, the fan zone will be open from midday on a Saturday matchday, at half-time and immediately after the final whistle.

That wraps everything up for now, but stay tuned for the release of our latest series of WIP and the eagerly anticipated collab beer with The Sherlocks.
