FCBC 4th Birthday

That time has come around again, we're another year older and of course to celebrate that we've got a stellar line up of delicious beers and a massive weekend of fun to be had in our brewery.
It wouldn't be a Full Circle birthday without our annual re-brew of Dooper, our Double IPA edition of our flagship core IPA, Looper. In years gone by this has been voted as our best brew of the year and rightfully so, it always comes out delicious and sells out within days. It's back once again this year and tasting even better than we remember it.
As well as this delicious beer returning, we're running our Golden Dooper giveaway! We have created 24 golden cans and they'll be dished out among gift boxes, advent calendars and other orders going out from our web shop as well as given away from the tap room on our birthday weekend. Keep your eyes on our socials for ways to find a golden can, if you find one you will receive a mixed pack of beers, a 4th birthday glass and FCBC merch alongside an invite to our Golden Dooper event where one lucky attendee will win a £500 tab to be used in our tap room!
Those hawk-eyed among you may have noticed we recently released the bourbon barrel aged edition of Kodiak as part of our Call of Quercus range. Kodiak was a re-brew as part of our 3rd birthday beers, so we took this idea and created Moose which is inspired by Kodiak but with a hefty serving of maple chucked in there. Strong, malty, rich are just a few of the words you could use to describe this beauty. Keep your eye out for a special barrel aged edition of Moose coming next year...
Inspired by one of our most popular releases in 2022, Half Nelson, which was named due to the hop bill being exactly 50% Nelson Sauvin (any wrestling fans may recognise the nod to the Full Nelson here). Half Nelson was voted as one of our best brews of 2022 and was a particular favourite among our team so we decided to bring it back in a slightly more sessionable form. Expect the hazy juice-bomb that you already know at a very respectable 4%.
All of our birthday beers will be available to pre-order from our web shop on Friday 17th November but will not be available to collect until Wednesday 22nd November so it doesn't affect our trade customers who will receive their orders of these beers commencing from the 22nd.
To celebrate this momentous occasion we have a class weekend lined up at our tap room.
4PM - First pours of our birthday releases.
5PM - Live music from Matt Besford.
7.30PM - Musical bingo with David Alley.
We will have delicious scran supplied by Goodtimes Tacos. Entry is free, no tickets required and all attendants will have a chance to win prizes during musical bingo, including 2 of 24 Golden Dooper cans. There will also be some birthday cake being dished out and beer pong to be played.
We're hosting our annual birthday tour and tasting guided by our wonderful team, they will take you for a full tour of the brewery and talk you through our processes while answering any questions you may have. After this you will be heading back into our tap room to try all of our birthday beers and barrel aged range, all beers are included in the ticket price.
There will be 2 groups, one starting at 2pm and one starting at 3.30pm. Each group will also have a Golden Dooper can up for grabs.
Unfortunately, we have now SOLD OUT for both sessions. Fear not - this will return for our 5th birthday!
We have selected a handful of venues to offer a first pour of our birthday beers so those who aren't local to us still have a chance to get their hands on these beers as soon as they can. If any of these venues are local to you be sure to head down on Friday 17th November to get your exclusive first pours of our full 4th Birthday range.
