Back To The Future Beer Festival

After months in the planning, and decades in the waiting, October 21st 2015 came around. Now known as 'Back To The Future Day'. We had 6 new beers made from some excellent breweries, and we got hands on and helped brew 4 of them. We had D.O.C Brown Ale from Drygate, McFly P.A from Cromarty, 1885: Smoking Gun Stout from Pilot Beer, 1955: American Lollipop from Alpha Project, 1985: Biff Lager from Alechmey and 2015: Rehydrated Pizza from Stewart Brewing's Craft Beer Kitchen.
