What's on in May



Whether you're popping into the taproom or out and about around London, here is an update of what we've got going on in May.


Thursday 2nd - Live Music

 Orbit Beers Taproom

We're lucky to have Rudy Creswick performing live in the taproom on the first Thursday of May (2nd). Playing bass-centric jazz with a blend of electronics and live instruments, drawing influence from hip hop and soul to dubstep and DnB.


Thursday 9th - Bourbon & Beer Tasting with Heaven Hills Distillery 

 Orbit Beers Taproom

We've got Chris from Heaven Hill Distillery joining Chris Matthewman, one of our Orbit Brewers to chat through some of our limited edition barrel-aged beers (aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels). We'll taste two fresh beers, two barrel-aged versions, alongside the whiskeys that those barrels once contained. 

Join us for a lineup of great beers and bourbons, taking you through our barrel-ageing process and some of the histories of American Bourbon. Expect some rare bottles from the Orbit Beers archives and some rare whiskeys and moonshine from one of the world's biggest family-owned distilleries.

Tickets available on Eventbrite: £10 (includes all tastings, welcome cocktail, 4 whiskeys, and 4 beer tasters).
