A FINCHAMPSTEAD brew­ery is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter the suc­cess­ful launch of a new Tap Yard, al­low­ing it to of­fer some of the fresh­est brews around.

Siren Craft Brew, which was judged one of the top 100 brew­eries in the world two years ago, has opened up the 10-line yard that can serve up to 100 peo­ple at a time, giv­ing the chance to let cus­tomers try be­fore they buy.

The taps in­clude core beers West Coast IPA Sound Wave and Loose Leaf pale ale Yu Lu.

The com­pany will also be pour­ing Grape­fruit Sour

IPA Pom­pel­mo­cello, pale ale Sus­pended In Rye, break­fast stout Bro­ken Dream, Rye IPA Ryesing Tides, win­ter dou­ble IPA For­est For the Trees, Bour­bon bar­rel aged im­pe­rial porter with tamarind Shel­tered Spirit, an im­pe­rial stout with cof­fee and figs called Turk­ish (Project Barista) and an Ir­ish Dry Stout, Afterlight.

Based at Marino Way, it will be open from noon to 8pm on Fri­days and noon to 7pm on Satur­days.

Tap Yard fridges will house ev­ery Siren beer in­clud­ing new col­lab­o­ra­tions in­clud­ing Brook­lyn’s Other Half, Spain’s Na­parbier and neigh­bours Elu­sive Brew­ing.

Andy Nowlan, from Siren Craft Brew, said: “This is a re­ally ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ment for Siren that we’ve been plan­ning for some time.

“Our kegs are filled and im­me­di­ately moved to cold stor­age, where the same space acts as the Tap Yard cel­lar. This means we’re serv­ing su­per fresh beer at all times.

“In ad­di­tion, we’ll now be able to run larger scale par­ties more reg­u­larly, of­fer event space for lo­cal busi­nesses and act as a cen­tre-point for the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

The new Tap Room caps an ex­cit­ing four years for Siren.

It opened in 2013 and im­me­di­ately found suc­cess: Rate­beer named Siren Best New Brew­ery in the UK (2013) and sec­ond Best New Brew­ery in the World (2013). The awards con­tin­ued in 2014 win­ning Best Brew­ery in the UK (2014) and a Top 100 Brew­eries in the World (2015).

And for par­ties look­ing for a great night out with­out a driver, the brew­ery is served by the Leop­ard bus route.
