There’s naan-thing quite like it

We love coming up with new stuff, there's naan-thing quite like it! That's why we were so excited to launch our new Naan Laager last month. As far as we know, it’s a world’s first beer made from unsold and wonky naan we rescued from a naan bread manufacturer in [...]

Bread with Purpose

Our beers have always had an environmental purpose at their heart – doing their bit to fight the growing problem of food waste by turning unsold bread into beer. But we never wanted that to be the extent of our story.  However well-polished your environmental halo, there is always the [...]

We've been meaning to write.... It’s an understatement to say the world is rather a different place to when we last put virtual pen to paper in this blog. Sorry about that. It was a New Year resolution to start capturing some ramblings regularly but given its already the end [...]

Crumbing and Grinding…

Hello Crumbers! Where did time go?? Sorry it's been so long since we posted. We've been busy keeping a lot of you hydrated during the long hot summer. Our Sourdough Pale Ale seemed to be going down particularly well, as did the continuing popularity of our Reigate Beer Walks (if you haven't [...]

“Luke, I am your father” *

Father's Day is fast approaching A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away a young Jedi was wracking his brains with what to buy his father for Father's Day. Yes, he'd recently discovered that his Dad was an intergalactic warlord and the biggest villain in cinema history but, [...]

Can you feel the love tonight…?

I'll resist breaking into my best Elton John impression (or re-enacting a scene from the Lion King). Not because it wouldn't be good - I have a voice like an angel, or at least that's what I tell myself in the shower in the morning. Give me a loofa and [...]

30,000 bottles of beauty…

Wow, Reigate, you are a thirsty lot! Today we officially brewed our 30,000th bottle of Crumbs! Packing up bottle 30,000! Now that may not be a lot compared to the big boys who probably make that much in a few hours but, to us, that is a pretty [...]

And the winner is…… the crowd

You could cut the tension with a knife. There we sat, all looking far smarter than we usually do 364 days a year. Surrounded by 400 of Surrey's best food producers, retailers and general big wigs. Adria had even cut his beard off as, it had been so long since [...]

A sensational (if not sizzling) Summer!

Hello fellow Crumbers! I hope you've had a good summer? Although last time I wrote I seem to remember we were basking in 30 degree heat,  shame it didn't quite last! Life at Crumbs Towers has continued to be hectic, hopefully you'll have seen some of our recent updates? At [...]

Crumbs – I’ve got a new wife!

As readers of this blog will know, our journey to creating and selling our first brew has been a continual venture into the unknown. That's exactly the thing that makes it so exciting. What's made it even more exciting in recent days is apparently I've got a new wife! Result! 'Rosie and [...]

Selling like hot cakes – or should that be hot bread…?

Well it's been a rather busy couple of weeks.  After the euphoria of actually getting our first ever brew into a bottle, it quite quickly hit home that we now (quite literally) had our very own beer mountain. We ought to get out there and try and sell it! [...]

Finally, it’s here! And its better than a date with Jet

I’m glad to say I have finally lived out a childhood fantasy! No, not going on a date with Jet from Gladiators. Better than that, I got to venture through the round window on Playschool into my very own “today we’re going to learn how beer is bottled” episode. It [...]

Crumbs! We’ve got a new look…

As you may have read in previous posts, we embarked on a bit of a make-over of the Crumbs brand with the team at Fourleaf Design a few weeks back. That's not to say we didn't like our old logo (designed by our extremely talented friend Hannah) but it was [...]

Beer and Music. Is there a better combination?

Well, we're quite biased on that one... On one hand, all of us at Crumbs Beer are ready to pay extortionate amounts (plus booking fees) to see our favourite bands. Some of us even delight (or annoy, depending on who you ask) anybody with enough patience with our (somewhat dubious) musical [...]

44% of bread produced in the UK goes to waste. Oh Crumbs!

Taking over the blog today, it’s the Crumb Spreader, Adrià Tarrida. I’ve always thought that companies should do, first of all, good. Making money is just the way they can ensure they’ll be doing good for longer! That’s why, when my mate and Chief Crumber Morgan told me about his [...]

Version 1 – it’s here!

So exciting to take first delivery of our first test brew: Crumbs Amber Lager version 1. Feels like it's taken a long time to get here when in reality it wasn't that long ago I was munching on a bacon sarnie in Chalk Hills. Before you ask though - sorry, [...]
