Brixton x Harlem Beer Exchange
August 2, 2022
We're bringing you the first ever transatlantic Beer Exchange where drinkers in London and Harlem can share a pint across the pond
We've partnered with our friends at Harlem Brewing Company to announce a first-of-its-kind beer ‘exchange’, encouraging beer lovers in New York and London to buy each other a pint from across the pond. The Beer Exchange enables visitors to our taproom and drinkers in New York to buy each other a beer with the tap of a card. And to keep things the spirit of community, we'll will be donating all the proceeds from the exchange to Norwood & Brixton Foodbank.
With many of the best friendships starting over a pint, we're also encouraging visitors to our taproom to share a toast or a message (and their Instagram handle if they fancy!) with the future recipient of their beer on a postcard available at the bar.
This transatlantic brewery collab came about because in June 2021, the Harlem and Brixton Business Improvement Districts started an exciting twinning partnership to celebrate the shared heritage, culture and values of two historic local areas in two of the world's great cities. Brixton and Harlem are hugely important cultural centres with great histories of being open and welcoming to newcomers, and being central places of importance for Black communities, nurturing activists, artists and visionaries.
This summer from 3rd to 7th August, Brixton is hosting the very first Brixton x Harlem festival to highlight all that the two local areas share, and to mark the twinning.
You can join the founders of Brixton Brewery and Harlem Brewing Co to celebrate the launch of the beer exchange and our new collab beer, Common Threads on 4th August at our tap room. While a DJ spins a Brixton x Harlem playlist, pull up a stool, get chatting and raise a glass to the flavours that unite us.
