At 7pm tonight, the long awaited launch of Magic Rock Brewery will take place at the Grove in Huddersfield. All four of their regular beers should be available along with food and entertainment, in the shape of circus themed acts, but how Chloe will cope with a lion tamer in the tap room is beyond me !
Magic Rock is based in Quarmby and is another addition to Huddersfield's growing number of craft breweries, and if what I have been told about their beers is correct, they should be well worth hunting out.
The intention is for 3 of their beers, Curious, Rapture and High Wire to be on handpull, and the fourth, Cannonball, to be on keykeg. This is a 7.4% Ipa. Curious is a 3.9% pale ale, and Rapture a 4.6% red ale. They have also brewed a stout, called 'Dark Arts' which should be their 5th in the core range.
However, should you miss the Grove event, there is another promised on the 30th June at the North Bar in Leeds to give the Loiners a chance to sample their wares.
Lets hope it all goes well for them and their beers reach the heights of success that some of our other local breweries have achieved.
