The brewery has partnered with three breweries and worked with staff at its three bars, to come up with the collaboration beers, which will be launched on 16 February at a location yet to be confirmed.
Two of the beers are also to be bottled and will be available via the brewery’s website early next week. The other breweries that Tiny Rebel has collaborated with include Berkshire’s Siren Craft Brew, Bristol’s Moor Beer and Aberdeen’s Fierce Beer.
The collaboration beers range from an 8.4% ABV Double IPA (Didgeridank) and an Oolong Tea Pale Ale (Can’t We all Just Get Oolong) to an Orange Coffee Stout (Orange Mocha Frapp Stout) and a Honey Oat & Banana Wheat Ale (There’s Always Honey in the Banana Stand).
Speaking about the birthday brews, Tiny Rebel’s digital marketing executive Niall Thomas said: “The guys in our bars have loads of really creative ideas for beer so we give them the chance to make a few of them a reality every now and then. This time they came up with some incredible flavour combinations.
“Collaborating with other breweries is often one of the most fun aspects of brewing. Getting stuck in, bouncing ideas around and generally mucking about with friends is a great way to get the creative juices going.
“Every one of these beers is unique and all of them are really, really drinkable. We've done it just to have fun, but wicked beers are the by-product of the guys that came up with the ideas and the brew team that made it happen.”
Cummings' CAMRA bid
Earlier this week, the brewery’s co-founder Brad Cummings unveiled his manifesto to be elected to the national executive of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).
Among Cummings’ proposals are scrapping JD Wetherspoon discount vouchers, and a blanket ban on with sexist, racist or homophobic/transphobic behaviour and pump clips.
Describing his own feelings towards the organisation's Revitalisation Project, Cummings said: “It has been a project that they have been looking at for over two years now, and nothing has come to the fore.
“I've spoken to people who worked on the document and they themselves weren't happy with it. They have to please members who are still stuck in the past of 50 years ago. They are just tip-toeing around the real issues.”
