What you'll do

Gather at the Wiper and True taproom on Friday 20th May for a very special free beer tasting event with founder, Michael Wiper.

On the night, get guided through a tasting of three excellent beers, released from your host's Barrel Store, where they work with wild yeasts and unusual ingredients. There will be plenty of time to talk about the beers and ask questions about the beers themselves, any processes, and the industry.

You'll be tasting:

  • Abundance, a very special Saison brewed with elderflower, foraged from Wiper and True's own orchards, then bottle conditioned for several months
  • Old Twelfth Night, a barrel-aged Orchard Ale, produced using apples grown in your host's orchard
  • Smoked Peach Sour, a collaboration brewed with your host's friends at Pastore Brewing Co., down in Cambridgeshire

Guests will also be joined by your host's May charity partner, Marmalade Trust. This brilliant Bristol organisation is working to raise awareness of and provide solutions to loneliness, across all ages and demographics.

Before the tasting begins, Marmalade Trust will say a few words about their fantastic work, with time for any questions. There will be Friendship Table, open in the taproom from 5.30pm, where anyone is welcome to sit down and chat to the Marmalade Trust team before the tasting starts.

This is a free event, but please book a ticket to reserve a space so your host can get an idea of the numbers, and set up the tasting comfortably.

About Wiper and True

Wiper and True are an independent craft brewery based in Bristol's St Werburghs. They pride themselves on creating refined and carefully considered beer.

The business was born in 2012, with three friends brewing homebrew beer on their kitchen stovetops. Over the next few years, the friends produced beer nomadically, brewing at other breweries across the country, often over weekends or through the night.

In 2015 Wiper and True built their own brewery in St Werburghs, where they’ve been based ever since, with a small on-site taproom serving some of the city's freshest beers, metres away from where they're brewed. In summer 2022 the team are expanding into an additional bespoke new brewery and taproom in Old Market, Bristol.
