Great news - Having done tap takevovers for several years, and run their own amazingly popular tap room in N17, Beavertown Brewery is taking over an entire pub for a month, from 26th of May, Thursdays to Sundays. It's the Beer Kat at 203 Holloway Road, N7 - Formerly the 12 Bar Club, and before that Phibbers. This will be the first of a series of takeovers of the site.
"The Laine Pub Company’s new pop-up pub format - The BeerKat - is coming to London’s Holloway Road on Thursday 26 th May for a month long riot of craft beer, live music, art, entertainment and street food, curated by the irrepressible Beavertown Brewery.
On the site of a former live music venue at 203 Holloway Road N7, The BeerKat will offer three trading floors to one of the most exciting and talked about breweries in the UK to showcase 18 of its highly regarded craft beers. And with a reputation for holding wild parties as platforms for sampling its fantastic beers, Beavertown and an attendant band of DJs, musicians artists, entertainers and food vendors, look set to make the event they are calling ‘We Are Beavertown’ the most fun anyone can have at a tap takeover.
Sam Millard, Beavertown’s events manager, said “One of the things we believe in most, is communicating our passion for what we do, directly to our drinkers. That’s why events are important to us. So when Laine’s approached us to take up a month’s residency at The Beerkat, we jumped at the chance. All the characters and personalities involved in making Beavertown beer will be there to meet our customers face-to- face and talk about what we all love.”
"Live music is an important part of the BeerKat's entertainment offer" explains Laine's operations director, Dan Hills. "The Holloway Road site was once an excellent gig venue and we wanted to again see bands playing in the fabulous tiered gallery." The ‘We Are Beavertown’ opening party takes place on Thursday May 26th and the folks from the brewery will be behind the decks providing the perfect soundtrack to accompany their delicious beers.
The BeerKat will be open every week from Thursday through to Sunday and entry is free.
The Laine Pub Co intends to use its BeerKat format for further pop-up pub opportunities and is already in discussions with other breweries and microbreweries seeking to get up-close and personal to craft beer drinkers. “But for June” says Hills, “the BeerKat takes you to Beavertown.”"
