Break a Keg! Twisted Barrel Ale brews Belgrade birthday beer

Posted on 16 August 2018

With just a month to go until we throw open our doors for a massive celebration of our 60th birthday year, preparations are well underway to make our Diamond Anniversary Gala a night to remember.

Music, poetry and performance are already on the cards; now the latest addition to the party will be a special anniversary ale produced by Coventry microbrewery Twisted Barrel Ale.

Following a public call out for suggestions and a social media poll, the birthday beer has been fittingly named “Break a Keg”, with “Ale the World’s a Stage” coming in a close second. This one-off, bottled craft beer will be an easy drinking, session IPA at 4.5% volume, with refreshing notes of citrus, pine and tropical fruits.

It’s just one of many treats that party-goers will have the chance to sample, with celebration coffees and cocktails already available in our café, along with a delicious range of tapas. And of course, no birthday party would be complete without a cake – look out for further details coming soon!

Open to the public to attend, our Diamond Anniversary Gala will feature an exciting lineup of live music, DJ sets, exhibitions, archive material, poetry readings and pop up “theatrical surprises”, running from 8 till late.

Better still, all proceeds from sales and donations will be reinvested back into our vital work in the community – so by booking a ticket, as well as joining in the fun, you’ll also be helping to raise much-needed funds towards theatrical experiences that have the power to transform lives. You can find out more about why we are a charity here.

The Belgrade Theatre’s Diamond Anniversary Gala takes place on Saturday 15 September. Tickets are available to book now.
