Rare bottles to sip and savour
And then there's the lambic cage, where rare bottles are aged. They sit in full view, tempting thirsty drinkers and making mouths water. Beer Merchant's Tap is owned by importers and distributors Cave Direct. This puts them at a big advantage with access to, and often first dibs on, some of the best Belgian beers to reach these shores, alongside great craft beer from all over the UK.
The strong relationships Cave Direct have built up with brewers and makers means Beer Merchants Tap is able to put on some unique events that other venues will struggle to match.
‘Tap Takeovers’ are an established proposition now in craft beer bars and bottle shops up and down the country - Beer Merchant's Tap have taken this concept further by hosting monthly residencies, featuring not just the beers but the brewers as well.
