Hackney Brewery to host Queer Brewing’s third birthday party

Graham Robson April 23, 2022

Queer Brewing, a queer and trans-owned brewery which has raised thousands for LGBTQ+ charities, is to celebrate its third birthday by taking over Hackney Brewery’s High Hill Tap on the night of Saturday, April 30. This will be Queer Brewing’s first ever party so expect trashy campy music, extravagant decorations, dancing and a wide range of Queer Brewing’s distinct brews.

Queer Brewing has entlisted DJ duo Dance Mums to soundtrack the party with “a combo of pop throwback bangers, trash house you downloaded from lime wire, and live MCing”. Food will be available from High Hill’s current resident pizza kitchen, E17 local’s It’s Not Big Dough.

At the birthday party, Queer Brewing will be launching three new beers: a collaboration brewed with Hackney Brewery: a Hazy IPA named Ooooh!; a collaboration with Polly’s Brew Co; and a third beer of their own.

The Hackney Brewery X Queer Brewing collab will first be available exclusively at High Hill Tap for the birthday party, with the general release on Tuesday, May 3. Cans will be available to purchase online from the Hackney Brewery webshop.

Lily Waite, Founder of Queer Brewing says: “We’re so excited to be working with Hackney Brewery both on one of our birthday beers and on the party itself: we talked about brewing something together at the 2018 launch of Hackney’s pride beer Unicorn Rodeo and seemingly every year since, so it’s really great to be finally working on something we’re all so jazzed about.

“Any birthday is special, but I started Queer Brewing as a one-person project and thought it might last a few months, so to be celebrating our third birthday with people and breweries we really look up to is extra special.”
