For those that love craft beer, banter and great food, join The Chamberlain for their first ever Tap Takeover on Saturday 26 August.

With good food, good beer and good company, The Chamberlain introduces the first in a series of events that is sure to pique the interest of all beer aficionados out there. The Tap Takeover is a pint-off between your favourite craft beers: a gig where you decide who ‘takes the tap’.

Up first is the team at 8 Wired Brewing taking on the Liberty Brewing Company, where four of each brewery’s finest beers will go head-to-head. Choose from: 8 Wired Brewing’s West Coast IPA, Superconductor Double IPA, I Stout Imperial Stout, Pallet Trip Sour IPA and Liberty Brewing Company’s West Coast IPA, Citra Double IPA, Royal Oat Imperial Oatmeal Stout and Hateraid. All you have to do is sink a couple of brews and place your vote at the bar. Too easy.

All this talk about beer has made us hungry, so if you’re in need of a palate-cleanser, look no further than the ultimate Beast Feast, a meal for you and three mates that’s sure to challenge your appetite. The feast includes:

Slow roasted goat leg in bacon stew

Black pudding
Deep fried cottage pies
Potato soda bread
Cabbage salad
