Rainbow Project 2015
- 7 UK Breweries
- 7 US Breweries
- 7 Colours of the Rainbow
The Rainbow Project is a Siren Craft Brew initiative which began in 2013, when seven breweries from the UK were all assigned a colour and asked to brew a beer loosely based around that colour.
Then in 2014 each UK brewer was paired with a European counterpart, which produced some spectacular collaborations, built friendships and formed knowledge-sharing connections that are still going strong today. We were paired up with Tocclamatto form Northern Italy to produce Indigo Child - a gooseberry sour with flower petals, fruit and wild Somerset yeast.
For 2015, now in its third outing, we’re going trans-atlantic, pairing 7 of the best UK breweries with 7 of the best from the USA.
Magic Rock + Cigar City = Red
Buxton + Arizona Wilderness = Orange
Partizan + Praerie Ales = Yellow
Hawkeshead + Crooked Stave = Green
Siren Craft + Surley = Blue
Beavertown + Dogfishhead = Indigo
Wild Beer Co + Firestone Walker = Violet
Watch this space as a limited edition mixed box and kegs of all seven beers will go on sale after the launch parties this weekend. Find yourself at Beavertown brewery, Buxton Taproom or Magic Rock Taproom to see the three launch parties for South, Midlands and North.
Our collaboration partners, Firestone Walker, are some what of barrel ageing / fermenting legends with one of only two operational Union Systems in the world, a plethora of barrel aged beers and with their new initiative the Barrelworks building a library of sour barrels, they're kind of a big deal...
Stay tuned to see what creativity has been bred from our limitation of the Violet colour.
