The first Beer Mansion in London was one of the best beer events of last year, so could Brooklyn pull it off again in ? Needless to say we were excited about going again for round twothough in the knowledge that it would be a quite a feat to hit the same heights again.
Brooklyn invited me to attend this year but I certainly would have paid if that had not been the case considering the unlimited pours and various other enjoyable elements on offer. Rachael, brand ambassador for Brooklyn in the UK, wisely chose the same venue for this year.
The initial impact as we walked in was very similar to last year. There was a low-lit, slightly smoky feel to the place which lent itself well to the cool evening vibe of the event.
This year the rooms were themed and dressed to impress — particularly the forest room which was full of plants and featured a live band dressed in foliage. Beers were grouped together to fit the room they were in which was clever.
Time & location
We had just as much fun as last year exploring what was on offer, both from Brooklyn itself and guest breweries including Redchurch, 40FT and Thornbridge. Luckily I was able to taste Tripel Burner and a Black Ops among others but there was some confusion beforehand about who could go and how.
It was also a shame that the bar staff started pouring these rare beers away at the end. But due to logistics, the latter was only available on the second day while The Passion of the Mango Ghost Bottle was exclusive to the first — something I was looking forward to tasting.
Beer mansion. love it already. what is it, and how does it fit in with the mash tour?
Despite the niggles, and I stress they were minor issues, the event was awesome once again and many things were improved such as the addition of proper glasses. The sheer shock and surprise we experience last year was not something that could be recreated.
