We are 10
Celebrating 10 years of Siren
It’s a pleasure and a privilege for us as an independent brewery to be turning 10 years old. Thank you to each and every person who helped us get here.
We’ll be looking back over the years for inspiration and nostalgia, talking about some of the highs and the lows, the variety of different projects, all the while celebrating some of the milestones we’re most proud of. We’ll also be looking forward to what’s next, as we part of a very exciting year.
Hopefully you've got your hands on our four anniversary beers, which launched at our birthday shindig at the Tap Yard on the 18th March. It was the first time we’ve hosted a party like this for five years and it was incredible! After selling out in just 2 days, it was the biggest and most ambitious event we've held at the Tap Yard - hopefully the start of more like that to come!
Exquisite Corpse - 6.9% Consequential IPA
A celebratory beer inspired by the Surrealist party game we’ve all had a go at, where you draw different parts of a character without knowing what everyone else has drawn already. We recruited 10 influential people from Siren’s past, the majority from some incredible breweries, and asked them to contribute to this 6.9% IPA. The only catch is that no-one knew what the other had proposed… what could possibly go wrong? This Consequential IPA has been a joy to piece together - we can't wait for you to try it.
Times Ten - 5.0% 100 Day Helles
Times Ten is a beautifully conditioned lager, to which we have allowed a very generous 100 days to come to fruition. Mittelfrüh, Saphir and Czech Saaz hops offer fresh floral, herbal and subtle citrus flavours, complementing the base of cracker-like malts, which offer just a hint of sweetness. Crisp, refreshing and perfectly balanced. This is the most ambitious lager project we have ever worked on.
Crescendo - 11.0% Imperial Stout
Crescendo is a spectacular mashup of our most recent CCC project. Here we have captured the rich chocolate of Candour, the punchy vanilla of Curiosity, and the luxurious intensity of Charm to bring a crashing Crescendo of flavour to the series. This is one of the biggest stouts we’ve ever created, and for fans of any CCC beer, this should be on your radar.
Maiden 2022 - 10.0% Anniversary Barley Wine Blend
This bottle marks 10 years of barley wine at Siren. The first beer ever brewed at Siren back in 2013, this 10th edition of our popular barley wine brings new character to this barrel aged classic. As our labour of love, we believe that this beer improves each and every year thanks to the additional depth and complexity we're able to call on from the barrels as time goes by. Each year's edition brings a unique flavour profile to the table. What will you discover in Maiden 22?
We'll be hosting a variety of celebrations across the country with the first event being held at Craft Beer Co in Clerkenwell, where it all began in 2013. You can book a limited ticket, which secures you 1/3 pour of Maiden 2022 and a 10th anniversary glass, but no ticket necessary for general attendance - Click here for tickets.
Also confirmed is a Maiden Blending experience (ticketed) and then TTO at our friends A Hoppy Place, in Maidenhead. Click here for tickets.
But... stay tuned for more events, we'll have anniversary beer launch events all over the country, and indeed all over Europe.
Making it to ten years is a special achievement for any brewery or business, so we really wanted to mark the occasion this time. Not just with a big celebration in March, but with commitments that span the year round and onto the next ten years.
It all begins with Maiden, the beer that started it all, which will appear in some new guises this year. There are comebacks in there, there’s a nostalgia vibe, some incredible events and a minimum of ten home and away collaborations. We’ll also be supporting a minimum of ten good causes, and crowning ten Siren Heroes. Read on for more.
Through the year, we're also celebrating 10 years with 10 THINGS... check it out.
Do you know someone who truly embodies the idea of a Siren super fan? Maybe it's someone volunteering at events has been super inspirational, or maybe it's the person who introduced you to our beers? As part of our 10th anniversary, we're looking for 10 Siren Heroes who will receive VIP treatment for the rest of the year.
Click here to get your hero nominations in by the 18th March 2023.
It’s been a wild ride! From our first ever brew of Maiden to our 2023 anniversary spectacular, there has never been a dull moment or a lack of stories to tell. To help you piece it together, we’ve created a handy Siren Timeline, so you can roll back the years and see all the amazing beers, events, places and people who helped get us to where we are today.
So, whether you’ve heard a rumour about a worm beer, have hazy recollections of a New Zealand Rainbow Project, want to find out when Calypso first came to life, or when the nitro cans started flowing out of the canning line - check out the timeline.
