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 [...]

Designer Beer

Excited by the fact we seem to have a great beer on our hands it was time to turn our attention to a bit of marketing. Most importantly what is Crumbs actually going to look like? In a sea of wild and wonderful craft beers that seem to be growing [...]

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, [...]

Crumbing goes up a gear!

While our first trial brew develops into the fantastic beer we know it will be, we turn our focus back to keeping up the supplies of our wonder ingredient, Chalk Hills delicious bloomer loaves.  Now we're scaling up for a larger brew the volume needed is on the up so [...]

The first trial….

Finally, enough of the talking and researching, it's time to put theory into practice and actually get some beer made. The longer term plan is to create our own brewery in Surrey but for the time being, we have done our best to form an alliance with some friendly brewers [...]

OK – so how do we do this??

Good news - Chris and Rosie from Chalk Hills Bakery  were really interested in the idea of making beer from their unsold bread. We were also glad to hear that other people are already out there doing the same thing as us (not just ancient Egyptian civilisations): Toast Ale are brilliant champions of [...]
