A beer / cider talk and tasting from the most exciting collaborators in the UK drinks industry, Tom Oliver and Mills Brewing.

About this event

It was 6am on Monday 5th October 2015 when a young Jonny Mills began mashing in for what would become the first ever Mills Brewing venture and the first of many Mills / Oliver collaborations. From our tiny brewhouse behind the Sally, hours later this unfermented lambic-style wort was hurtling up the road to Herefordshire and the home of world-renowned cider-maker, Tom Oliver. Poured over cider lees with an added injection of fresh foxwhelp juice and left to slumber in oak casks under Tom's watchful eye, nineteen month's later, Foxbic was launched here at the Sally. Bottles of this original beer/cider hybrid, which was subsequently listed by Pellicle magazine as one of the defining beers of the last decade, are now so highly prized that they have been seen trading hands for hundreds of pounds apiece. 

Since then, Tom and husband-and-wife team Jonny and Gen Mills (Mills Brewing), have steadily released a number of beer / cider collaborations each one more stunning and complex than the last. Each party brings knowledge of it's own craft but crucially both share a wealth of expertise in fermentation creating a collaborative partnership unrivalled anywhere in the UK, if not the world. Tom Oliver, also known as the "Wizard of the West", has won countless awards and accolades for his ciders and perries which are a regular staple on the bar here at the Sally. Mills Brewing are the most in-demand, critically-acclaimed brewery in the country and have topped the list of UK breweries on the beer review app, Untappd. We're delighted to be hosting both Tom and Mills Brewing here at the Sally for one very special tasting evening. Whilst stocks of their crossover brews are in such short supply, each party will bring three of their own drinks and hopefully, stock levels permitting, a case of Foxbic IV will also be available to try. The evening starts at 7.30pm. Make sure you book your tickets here now and don't miss out on this very special night!
