CAMRA Women In Beer Feature

CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) are celebrating the #SummerOfPub. Get it, a play on words on the Summer of Love?!

Anyhow, part of this campaign is a series of ‘Women In Beer’ interviews and here I am third up in the series!

You can read the full interview here, if indeed you’d like to know what one of my cheesiest pub memories is!! CRINGE!

Siren Tap Takeover Fun With Cheese!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Siren Craft Brew Tap Takeover at the end of May! It was a VERY FULL HOUSE!

As I suspected, Hanwell had been waiting just as eagerly as I had for Siren to come on down and grace our board with their delicious beers.

Not only did Jamie from Siren chat to as many of the Hanwell Massive as possible about the glorious beers we had on but he also brought cheese pairings with him!! Yummy! Beer and cheese! What more could you possibly ask for?

Elusive Brewing Tap Takeover & Beat The Brewer!

Here at The Dodo Micropub, we love showcasing and supporting exciting, independent microbreweries producing some of the best beer the UK has to offer!

There’s a whole new section on this new look website dedicated to our events so do join us when you can as they’re a whole lot of fun.

Here’s a re-cap of our Tap Takeover and Beat The Brewer event with Andy from Elusive Brewing. He brought down his retro gaming vibes for a little Chuckie Egg tornament alongside general beer tastings and beery fun –

Small Biz Experts Interview

At the beginning of this year, Small Biz Experts came on down to The Dodo Micropub to film this little interview.

My advice at the end for anyone wanting to open up their own small business is me as a business owner all over! Just go and do it, be brave, have no fear but also measure everything, assess risks, don’t be too silly! Ha ha!!

Watch the interview below –

Cheers 2018 & Here’s To Scheming & Plotting In 2019!

Cheers 2018 & Here’s To Scheming & Plotting In 2019!

So here we are in a new year and I’m oficially “on holiday” in Hanwell. Who needs a new year trip to Sri Lanka? Well, me, as evidently I’m clearly rubbish at switching off from work mode! To be fair, on day one of my “holiday” I did throw myself into out of office mode. I had a relaxing facial and was so in the zen zone that I didn’t even realise my bag and wallet had been lifted from my posession in the pit of hell that is Lidl! Lesson learnt, I’m just not built for the chilled life!

The Launch Of The Dodo Beer!

Massive giant thank you to everyone who came down to the launch of The Dodo beer, our collaboration brew with Hanwell’s finest craft beer brewery, Weird Beard Brew Co!

The first cask went by 6.45pm and the second cask went by 8pm! I thought 2 casks would last me the entire weekend, not just 4 hours on a Thursday night! Well done Hanwell Massive! Really glad you have been enjoying the beer!

The Dodo Micropub X Weird Beard Collaboration Beer!

Yo! It’s a dream come true! The Dodo Micropub and Weird Beard Brew Co have made a collaboration beer together!! The Dodo beer is coming soon so put Thursday 13th September in your diaries for our launch event! We’re open in the evening from 5pm – 10pm so get in early to grab a seat.

We will be pouring The Dodo beer (cask available exclusively at The Dodo!!) plus having a Weird Beard Tap Takeover party! As you lot know, there ain’t no party like a Weird Beard party!

Yes, the collaboration beer is actually called The Dodo! So on brand for both beer businesses because in-keeping with Weird Beard’s musically named beers, it is in fact a song title of the punk rock band called Bad Religion. Weird Beard Bryan has in fact seen them live in the states. The lyrics are pretty apt for me too considering I left the corporate world to go and work in a much nicer environment full of happy, less evil beer people.

Among the commuters, dwarfed by the skyscrapers
I watch the countless millions fighting for space
See hateful, petty acts, disjointed images, 
And can’t believe that I’m one of the same race.

We’re all just struggling to cope
And we come to a fork in the road
As we watch our foundations erode
There’s only one direction to go.

It’s the way of the dodo
Such a noble destiny…

The Dodo, Bad Religion.

The Dodo collaboration beer is a juicy DDH oatmeal pale ale at 4.6% and joining The Dodo on the night we also have Sour Slave, Black Perle, Weird Wired and Hit The Lights.

See you then! It’s going to be a lot of fun!

A few snaps from the brew day for you! Even fulfilled my dream of climbing into a mash tun!
