We’re hosting a new year Tap Takeover combining a Manchester brewing icon and one of the latest new craft breweries on their first Derby Tap Takeover at two of our city centre venues, The Tap on Derwent Street and The Greyhound on Friar Gate.

Marble Brewery have been ‘brewing up a storm since 1997’ and have earned legendary status in Manchester. All their beers have been strictly organic and vegan since 2000. Originally famous for cask they have now embraced craft and are especially known for their craft stouts. Many of Manchester’s new wave of craft brewers learned their trade at Marble before setting  up many of Manchester’s new iconic breweries such as Cloudwater.

Wander Beyond Brewing have been going less than a year but have already caused a stir in the Manchester brewing scene. They are currently ranked the ninth best brewery in England on Untappd and are very innovative, using the finest fresh ingredients in their brews.

20 different beers from these breweries will be served across The Tap and Greyhound from 27th December through the new year. This is the first time these beers have been sold in Derby so craft beer and ale lovers alike are in for a real treat.

Our managing director, Paul Harris, said: “Ee enjoy sourcing beers from other leading breweries to offer our pub customers something new and exciting, and to complement our Derby Brewing beers. We love spending New Year’s Eve in our favourite pubs trying different beers so thought it would be great to round off 2018 with a big Tap Takeover across both of our city centre pubs so that people in Derby can spend the days after Christmas and into the new year sampling a wide range of excellent beer. It’s really exciting to be the first people in Derby to showcase these two renowned Manchester breweries together in a Tap Takeover.”

Start the night with us at The Tap with our early bird special of Burger and Pint for £10 5pm-8pm, then make your way to Greyhound Derby to sample the rest of the beers and enjoy home made tapas dishes through to midnight.
