COVID-19 UPDATES

***LATEST UPDATES AT TOP OF THE PAGE***

UPDATE 19:

***BIG COVID UPDATE - IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ***

After seeking advice, we have decided to open the brewery shop for collections of cask beer, bottles and merchandise on our regular Friday and Saturday opening times (1pm-5pm FRIDAY, 1pm-3pm SATURDAY).

YOU WILL NEED TO PRE-ORDER YOUR CASK BEER BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.

You can do this one of several ways:

 

  1. Head over to our web shop - www.leightonbuzzardbrewing.co.uk - and place your order. Payment will be taken upfront. Your order will be ready to collect within one hour on the earliest available collection day.
  2. Download and head over to the #Brew2You app and order there.
  3. Email Mark at mark@leightonbuzzardbrewing.co.uk with your order and preferred collection day/date. You can pay for your beer when you arrive.

We are taking pre-cautions to keep our customers and ourselves safe. There will be cones set outside at 2m apart; please adhere to the queuing system. DO NOT approach the tables until called forward.

PLEASE WEAR A FACE COVERING WHEN COLLECTING BEER. Please can we ask that you leave the premises once the beer is collected.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation with this. We are constantly reviewing and checking the guidelines; the above guidelines may change in the near future, so please keep an eye on our website and social media for more information.

Cheers!

- LB Brewing Co

 

UPDATE 18:

HERE WE GO AGAIN —

Folks, following the government guidelines and the PM’s announcement last night, we are having to move to HOME DELIVERY ONLY until further clarification is given by our glorious leaders, SIBA and/or CAMRA. To that effect, our opening hours are changing slightly:

Beer from LB Brewing Co will be available for home delivery on Wednesday - Saturday afternoons. You MUST place an order by 1pm on the day of your preferred delivery. Pre-orders are available through the usual channels - #Brew2You, our webshop or email mark@leightonbuzzardbrewing.co.uk with your order and preferred delivery day. At this time, we can only deliver within a 5 mile radius of the brewery (LB and the surrounding villages). This may change and we’ll keep you informed if it does.

Once again, when we get final clarification, we’ll let you know.

IN OTHER NEWS —

What’s that, you say? Two new beers? Sort of - we’ve rebranded XMash and Black Horse Santa; Winter Spice and Earthquaker more adequately reflect these two beers for this time of the year. Same great tasting beer, different labels. Earthquaker is available to buy in bottles too.

With that - 

JANUARY SALE - 

Beat those lockdown blues with some reduced price beer! XMash and Black Horse Santa bottles are now available for £25 per case / £2.50 per bottles. We’re also reducing our Barrel-Aged range to £7.50 per bottle / 2 for £14 and reducing the price on our merchandise. You can take advantage of these great offers on our webshop or email Mark to place an order.

UPDATE 17:

***(ANOTHER) IMPORTANT COVID-RELATED UPDATE, PLEASE READ*** (04.11.2020)

PRE-ORDERING--

After the government U-turn earlier in the week, we are pleased to confirm that our home deliveries and takeout opening hours will remain the same (for the time being). That being said, if you would like to purchase beer and cider takeaways from the brewery, it is ESSENTIAL that you pre-order before arrival. There are various ways you can do this:

1. Via our webshop - www.leightonbuzzardbrewing.co.uk. Chose your beer, chose what day you want to pick it up (or have it delivered) and checkout. Simples.

2. Via the #Brew2You app; download the app on your device of choice, sign up (for free), search for us in the app and you're away.

3. Via email; drop a line to mark@leightonbuzzardbrewing.co.uk with your name, order and a telephone number and we'll call you back to take a payment.

4. Phone; you can call Mark on 07538 903753 to place your order and we'll take a payment there and then.

5. Text; you can text the above number - we'll need your name and order and we'll call you back to take a payment.

The webshop and Brew2You are the easiest ways of pre-ordering, as they're quicker once registered and you can make a payment there and then, but any of the above ways work just fine.

PLEASE NOTE (and this is important); we WILL NOT be able to serve you unless you have pre-ordered via one of the above methods. We're having to adhere to these guidelines in order to keep the business open over the next month.

On arrival, all social distancing measures will be in place. Please can we encourage everyone to wear a mask when picking up their beer.With that, this weekend's beers are below including Crown Best, a guest beer from Stockport Brewing.

Many thanks, look forward to seeing you soon.

UPDATE 16:

***IMPORTANT NOTICE, PLEASE READ***

After the PM’s briefing on Saturday, we are having to wait and see how the land will lie from Thursday onwards. We’re hoping for confirmation from SIBA as to whether we are allowed to continue with takeaway beer on Fridays and Saturdays because, as it stands, from Thursday, pubs will not be allowed to provide a takeaway service for alcohol. We’re hoping that we’ll be allowed to potentially run a Click and Collect service, but again, we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll keep everyone updated when we know what’s happening.

Until then, we’re doing something a little different. We will be open TODAY (02/11), TOMORROW (03/11) and WEDNESDAY (04/11) from 3pm until 6pm for takeout beer. We have:

Crown Best (guest beer from Stockport), Captain Cook, Vimy Bomber, XMash, Restoration, Black Buzzard and Chilli Black Buzzard. You can pre-order on the Brew 2 You app or the website, or you can just turn up.

We will be doing home delivery on Wednesday and Thursday as usual unless we are advised otherwise. Again, you can order through Brew 2 You / our website.

More soon (hopefully!). Stay safe, folks.

UPDATE 15:

THIS WEEK’S BEERS & CIDERS (w/c: 13.07.2020)–

This week sees the welcome return of our Bavarian-style blonde ale BAVARIAN DRAGON. There is a VERY limited amount of Lemon Drop left; pre-order now to avoid disappointment!

PLEASE NOTE —

Please can we continue to encourage you to pre-order large quantities of beer for takeouts on Friday and Saturday. This can be done on the #Brew2You app, or via phone/email.

If you missed it, we’ve tweaked our opening hours for takeout beer. Our new opening hours are:

Friday: 1pm – 5pm

Saturday: 1pm – 3pm.

Our home delivery hours remain the same.
