- Opened in 2015, the Poole Brewhouse & Kitchen is celebrating its third birthday with a full week of complimentary brewing, charity, food tasting and music events.

Focusing on traditional methods and brewing its own beer onsite, the Poole Brewhouse & Kitchen has revelled in the rising popularity of craft beer locally and in the UK.

Situated on Dear Hay Lane in the town centre, from March 5 to 10, the Poole pub is inviting everyone to join them in celebrating their third birthday with a week-long series of free events.

Festivities will begin on Monday with a brew-themed birthday quiz at 8pm to raise money for the Poole Hospital Charity and includes a £6 offer on their B&K Burgers.

There will also be an Open Brew Day on Wednesday, from 3pm to 9pm, where visitors can meet the head brewer and learn more about their various home brews, which are crafted on site in large copper vats.

On Thursday, the pub will celebrate International Women’s Day with a free beer masterclass for ‘fem-ales’ from 7pm, with complimenting beer and food pairings. Spaces are limited, so advanced booking is essential.

On Friday, beer aficionados are invited to take part in the Blindfold Beer Challenge and join their Birthday Beer Tapping Party from 8pm. Blindfolded participants will need to sort their English Ales, from their Stouts, Porters, Lagers and IPAs, to be named the B&K beer tasting champion. Cracking open new and seasonal brews, this event will include complimentary beer tasters.

Finally, on Saturday from 7pm, there will be a big birthday bash with live music provided by local acoustic, rock and pop musician Andy L Smooth. Guests can also nibble on complimentary pub grub canapes and mouth-watering miniature tasters.

John Gleeson, operations manager for Brewhouse & Kitchen, said: “We’ve had a fantastic three years in Poole and really feel part of the local community. To celebrate, we look forward to opening our doors with a week-long series of special birthday events for everyone to come and enjoy."
