Siren Craft Brew - Stargazing Night
FRIDAY 31st JULY - 7.30pm
You may have noticed it’s all gone a bit celestial at Siren, as we celebrate the launch of Lumina, a brand new Session IPA and the shining light of our flagship range.
We’re self-confessed space nerds, and figured one of the best ways to enjoy this beer over summer could be by spending a long, ambient evening enjoying the sunset and the night sky. Now stargazing may not be as easy as it sounds, so we’ve put everything together in one place in the hope that as many of you as possible will join us on 31st July. Along with some visible constellations, there should also be a meteor shower in view over that weekend!
So, without further ado, let us introduce the Lumina Universal Bundle!
First things first, you’re going to need some beer. Of course Lumina is the star of the show here, but we’re including some other flagship classics to keep you going too. And how about some treats? Castilian Lemon Honey Cheesecake (currently unreleased) is an indulgent follow-up to one of our most popular ever cans, a juicy, tart and vibrant IPA. Origin Story features the first artwork crop taken from the Lumina canvas, and it’s probably the most ambitious Imperial Stout recipe we’ve ever created. You don’t want to miss this supermassive night cap.
But that’s not all. You’ll want some snacks to keep you going throughout the evening, so we’re including a set of Bier Nuts (we’ll advise some great pairings with the beers in the box), a delicious Salted Caramel Hüüg bar and a packet of our favourite throw-back crisps - Pickled Onion Space Invaders! For those of you planning on a midsummer BBQ or campfire cook-out, the marshmallows are on us!
Although you’d be welcome to enjoy this set of beers anytime, we thought it might be nice for everyone to get involved together on the 31st July. We’ll be hosting a virtual event with our Founder Darron talking all about Siren and Lumina, the incredible Dr. Becky Smethurst (astrophysicist at Oxford University) providing insight into the night sky and some top tips on stargazing from home, along with some other little extras on the night. You’ll be able to access all this separately if you can’t make it.
To make the most out of the evening, we’ve made some Lumina Planispheres from scratch! These labours of love can be adjusted to display the visible stars and constellations for any time or date of the year, a timeless resource that we hope will be enjoyed by novice astronomers and seasoned stargazers alike. In addition, you’ll receive a Lumina artwork print that doubles as a star chart, another keeper! You may have also noticed some special Lumina glassware, stickers, beermats - it’s all going in.
Because these cases included currently unpacked beers, the boxes will ship in the lead up to the event. If you’re looking to get hold of other beer before then, we’d advise that you place stargazing box orders separately to avoid the fresh cans being delayed.

FAQs (we'll add to this as they come in!)
What happens with pre-orders?
We have a limited amount of these sets available, and have aimed the event at a certain date, so want to give people as much chance as possible to get involved. This means we'll be taking orders now, but shipping in the build up to the event (likely starting around 21st July).
Can I order more than one stargazing set?
Yes, that's absolutely fine. The sets are yours to share out however you wish.
Can I collect from the Tap Yard?
Yes, you'll receive an email when they're ready for collection.
Can I swap any items in this set?
Due to the volume of work that will go into building these boxes, we can't offer any changes to the boxes. However, you can add other products to your order (bearing in mind that they won't ship or be ready for collection until the Stargazing Box is ready).
What will I need to access the event?
We'll send you a link to a YouTube stream, however you will also be able to access content afterwards.
