Collect 6 stamps from our tap takeovers and claim a prize!

Castle Rock’s #NCBW Tap Takeover Trail

Nottingham Craft Beer Festival is only round the corner and so we’ve launched a tap takeover trail to get you started in the lead up to the festival!

We’ve also got trail stamp cards to give out, meaning if you collect six stamps from the tap takeovers, you’ll get a FREE ticket to the Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival trade day. You’ll also be invited to our pre-trade session where we’ll treat you to a half of Castle Rock beer and give you your ticket. Then it’s off to RHBCF!

Both events take place on Wednesday 11th October.


Here’s what you can check out during the week:

From Wednesday 14th June

The Kernel Tap Takeover at the Kean’s Head

Castle Rock Brewery Showcase at the Vat and Fiddle

From Thursday 15th June

Three Blind Mice Tap Takeover at the Newshouse

Heist Tap Takeover at the Embankment

Abbeydale Tap Takeover at the Canalhouse

Arbor Tap Takeover at the Stratford Haven

From Friday 16th June

Varvar Tap Takeover at the Fox and Grapes
