Vibrant Forest Summer Solstice Tap Take Over
June 21, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - June 22, 2018 @ 2:00 am
Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year is particularly associated with ancient Celtic, druid and pagan festivals. It is believed to be a time when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest. A night where outer worldly beings, spirits and the fairies use their magic and cause mayhem in the forest.
We have a special guest tap take over on this day from Lymington, UK at the edge of the New Forest reserve and quite close to the mythical Stonehenge. We welcome the Vibrant Forest Brewery who for the first time in their history will be bringing their beer to Germany and to the magical surroundings of the Monterey Bar, Berlin.
The brewery designs every beer to bring forth a grand adventure in flavour. Drawing inspiration from their coastal home and the beautiful heritage listed nearby New Forest, their beers have both a distinct English lineage but also conjure up some unique takes on old & new age styles such as their Chardonnay Barrel aged Farmhouse Ales, Salted licorice Stouts, Wit beers, West Coast and New England IPA´s.
For this event the Monterey Bar will be transforming itself into a enchanted forest with special green lighting, visuals, plants, trees, incense and and a funky, ethereal, electric soundtrack to recapture the rhythms of the earth and the time when our ancestors were in harmony with their surroundings.
We will feature a large selection of Vibrant Forest beers on tap and from bottle for you to try. So don´t miss this very special event where art, music, ritual and drink will combine for a magical evening.
ps. Druid robes, woodland fairy costumes will also reap rewards from us 😉
