Brixton Brewery Brews for Beer-B-Q Season

Brixton Brewery Brews for Beer-B-Q Season

As the BBQ season heats up, LBA member, Brixton Brewery has partnered with the acclaimed chef Ruben Dawnay of Ruben’s Reubens to introduce Beer-B-Q Season, a uniquely spiced smoked pale ale. This innovative brew is perfect for sipping by the barbecue or adding an extra kick to your favourite grilled dishes.

Combining the culinary excellence of Ruben’s Reubens with the brewing expertise of Brixton Brewery, Beer-B-Q Season features beech-smoked malts, black pepper, and scotch bonnets, creating a spicy, smoky flavour that captures the vibrant essence of Brixton. This beer is set to elevate the barbecue experience for enthusiasts everywhere.

Ruben Dawnay commented, “Beer-B-Q Season is a great beer to sip and to infuse into your favourite meat and veggie recipes before they hit the grill. I’ve also created a limited-edition spice rub, designed to work alongside the beer when you’re cooking at home this summer.”

Jez Galaun, Co-Founder & Managing Director at Brixton Brewery, added,

“This brew encapsulates the vibrant flavours of Brixton, offering people an exciting taste of our community.”

To complement the beer, Ruben has crafted a BBQ spice rub, complete with directions on how to use it in two special recipes: Beer-B-Q Braised Beef and Charred Beer-B-Q Cauliflower. These recipes will be included with all orders of the beer, allowing fans to recreate the experience at home.

The recipes can be found at Rubens Beer-B-Q Season Recipes and will also be showcased at a special pop-up event at Brixton Brewery’s Tap Room on May 29th.

Beer-B-Q Season is available for purchase online and at the Brixton Brewery Taproom. Orders placed during National BBQ Week (W/C 3rd June) will receive a packet of Ruben’s limited-edition BBQ spice rub while stocks last.

Tickets for the Ruben’s Reubens x Brixton Brewery Spring Beer-B-Q Bash are now available, priced at £15 Admission includes one main dish of your choice and a complimentary pint of Brixton Brewery beer. Limited walk-up tickets will also be available on the night at the same price, but without the complimentary beer.
