I have a vague recollection that it may have been mentioned on here… the Old Crown Republic, on New Oxford Street, had a pop up US bar a while back organised by Virgin Atlantic. Beers from every US state. Hundreds of bottles were left so they’re selling them off. From the UK Craft Beer Forum on Facebook:
AMERICAN CRAFT BEER FIRE SALE
Happy Sunday Everyone,
Following a post we made on this forum last week we have decided the best way to shift this excess stock is with a Bottle Sale.
The sale will be held at The Old Crown Public House, 33 New Oxford Street, London, WC1A 1BH at 12pm on Sunday 7th October. All the beers will be priced at £2, £3 and £4 for the limited number of larger sharing bottles. The cellar is quite small so access will be ticketed on a first come basis. Subject to how busy we get there might be a time limit in the cellar to make sure everyone gets a chance to have a rummage. We’ll have some boxes for sale but please bring some with you if you can.
Depending on popularity we may also limit the number of bottles people can purchase to ensure no one goes home empty handed. With that in mind it would be very useful to know potential numbers. Please post interest here.
We’ll update this post with any changes to the sale format.
Thanks and look forward to seeing you next Sunday!
