Earth Ale will create an exciting new taproom. A flexible space for events and activities for the residents of Haringey. There is a fantastic opportunity to renovate this static double-decker bus, in Blue House Yard, Woodgreen. We want to offer 11 hyper-local, tasty craft brews on tap to showcase the great beer brewed in North London. On the upper deck, we can envision summer screenings of cult classics and hold intimate gigs to support local bands. It would also be a terrific space for learning with the ability to hold language lessons or small lectures from subject experts. Our organisation has strong environmental beliefs. We are going to try to minimise our impact by recycling more than you thought possible, We plan to install solar panels on the roof of the bus to generate our own electricity. We plan to have food truck residencies evolving through the spring and summer months serving delicious food to compliment the great beers we will serve.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We'd like to offer opportunities for underprivileged local people who have the odds stacked against them and give them a way to build up knowledge and skills. They would start out serving on the Bus with opportunities to learn every aspect of the business such as how to brew and make beer, learn how to sell the products and manage a company. Our ethos is heavily focused on fostering entrepreneurship. Our aim is to give someone the confidence and knowledge to start their own business in the future. In order to maintain our green approach, we would like to install solar panels on the bus roof to help cover some of the electricity and hot water. We will not use any plastic on the bus and maintain minimum wastage from the space where we will make sure everything will be recycled i.e keykegs, cups and food waste.
Steps to get it done:
Alex's journey began here in the UK, progressing through Denmark where foraging for natural flavours sparked his interest in brewing, and more recently onto South Africa, where he learned to create fresh flavoursome beers from natural, often foraged ingredients. Earth Ale was born as a result of Alex's passion for food, travel and beer.
