News: Brew Dog Announce Live Gigs
By Adam Clery on May 31, 2012 in Music
Brew Dog has caused quite the stir in the mere weeks it has been open to Newcastle’s legions of liquid lovers. Ourselves included.
At first it was the notion, and the proof, that most commercial lager tastes like it’s been distilled through the bladder of a goat and served in an old sock. Beautiful beer was followed quickly by the introduction of meat platters and cheese boards where one would normally find ready salted peanuts and beef Monster Munch.
Now live music is on the agenda, and it’ll not shock you to discover that they’re turning their noses up at the likes of your dad’s bandanna-wearing covers band. Combining these gigs with things like crafts fairs, spoken word performances, art trading and the like means that you’ll be able to enjoy a full and sophisticated afternoon out with your pint of Trashy Blonde or your Hardcore schooner.
Acts announced so far range from the blues stylings of Michael Littlefield & Scott Taylor (Sunday 3rd), the rock mentality of The 78s (Sunday 17th), and the folk outlook of Holy Moly & The Crackers (Sunday 10th). There’s also rumblings of a few more illustrious acts in the pipeline as the craft beer Mecca establishes itself as a gig venue.
