During the summer we hosted Brewery Beats - a fabulous Drumming, Art, Beer and Food Festival.
It was a fantastic day - we reckon we had in excess of 1,000 people visiting, although that's a bit of a guess as we were behind the bar all day serving beer (700 pints of it!)
The bands, artists and food prodcuers who took part are listed below to give you a flavour of what was there on the day - a big thank you to them all for making Brewery Beats such a success.
Also a huge thank you to all the people who helped to make it happen - particularly Shipton Community Centre who lent us their chairs and tables and let us use their car park on the day. And to Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for lending us a marquee.
We hope to host similar events at the brewery in the future so keep checking back or follow us on Twitter for the latest brewery news.
Kaminari UK is a Japanese style drumming ensemble based in Yorkshire. Their performances are both energetic and dynamic incorporating traditional Japanese rhythms alongside their own compositions
Djembebash are a community group that was formed in 2000 in Wilberfoss. They play exotic African rhythms on traditional Djembe drums and are made up of musicians from complete beginners to professionals of all ages.
Mazazik are a dance troupe who use a fusion of Egyptian, Flamenco Rumba, African and Celtic dancing with funky drumming to create vibrant and beautiful dance, bright colours and smiling faces.
The Eclectic Sparks
The Eclectic Sparks have been described by club promoter Donal O'Driscoll as "...hugely popular and very gifted..." this exhilarating folk/country four-piece play everything from swing, to blues and rock. With three lead vocalists, and virtuoso instrumental playing they are gaining a big following in the Leeds and York areas. (Pictured playing at York Food Festival in Parliament Street in 2012.)
Our own 'artist-in-residence', when Jane isn't busy brewing at Treboom she's being creative in other ways. Jane makes abstract sculptural vessels and paintings exploring the textures and colours of landscapes
Mo produces unique contemporary jewellery using unusual combinations of beading, silver, copper, wirework, stones & acrylics influenced by colour, texture & shape.
Heather has used traditional basket weaving techniques to make these Danish inspired baskets/sculptures. She will be demonstrating on the day and running have-a-go workshops
Isabel K-J Denyer
Isabel makes thrown stoneware pots for people to love and use every day. She draws inspiration from the nature surrounding her at her home in Yorkshire, from lichen or stonemasons chisel marks on an old barn to the ripples of water on a nearby stream.
Jane is one of two artists who have their studios next to the brewery. Her work on paper includes watercolour and ink drawings, handmade books, illustrations and etchings.
Based in Shipton-by-Beningbrough Ruth makes striking sculptural ceramic vessels that invite quiet contemplation.
Landscape and cityscape drawings and paintings. David's drawings and paintings capture aspects of the built landscape in and around York.
Sculpture and painting
Stefan is the other artist with a studio on the brewery site. In his paper chromatography collages he uses rust as a substitute for paint to create abstract surfaces. His other focus is on trivial small-scale objects - often made from ceramic bones - with a humorous or satirical twist.
Large contemporary paintings depicting funky flowers and landscapes full of colour and vitality. Primarily a colourist, Lesley is inspired by the natural world and is best known for her unique depiction of flowers. Her work is in public and private collections from York to West Africa.
Lyn uses a diverse range of materials seeking the most suitable method to reflect the remembered, disrupted or imagined rural landscape.
In the Unnatural Habitats series of collages Peter explores ideas around our interest in collecting and preserving, and creating essentially very 'Unnatural' environments in which to display wildlife ( specifically birds in this series). The pieces use compositions of Victorian stuffed birds from glass cases combined with images of the birds natural environments.Website
Peter's work looks back to a time that probably never existed, images created for us by fashion & Hollywood of the 1940’s. Individually crafted pieces, each is unique, no moulds or formers being involved.
Food and Drink
Well, we couldn't have a festival at a brewery and not have any beer could we? There'll be a real ale bar featuring all your favourite Treboom beers as well as a new beer, Hop Britannia, specially brewed for the day.
There will also be soft drinks available
And John will be conducting brewery tours throughout the day... if you can tear yourself away from the drumming.
NB Would you like to take home a beer box on the day? If so please contact us to pre-order.
We love pizza here at the brewery - it's a perfect accompaniment to beer. So when we heard of a mobile wood-fired pizza oven we thought, "Great!" When we heard that Pizza Loco's oven was in the shape of steam train we were beside ourselves with excitement.
Swirlz & Yorvale Ice Cream
Jane's partial to a '99' if you're asking
The Harrogate Preserves Company
We're really pleased Sally from Harrogate Preserves is coming along to sell her fantastic jams, chutneys and sauces but then we are a bit biased. Sally usesTreboom's Kettle Drum in her delicious Ale, Fig and Apricot chutneys. Sally has also started using it in a beer mustard which is brilliant
The Chipper (chilli pepper) jam is brilliant - John likes it on a sausage sandwich.
George and Joseph
We've got chutney so next up is cheese from fabulous Leeds-based cheesemongers. George and Joseph were founded in 2012 and specialise in sourcing delicious locally produced cheeses from Yorkshire. We feel a ploughman's lunch coming on (see Food for Thought below).
In John's past life as a scientist he worked with Butterflies Chocolate's husband and wife team, Claire and Bertie Bingham (what is it about ex-scientists and food?).They make luxury, handmade chocolates using the finest Belgian chocolate combined with the best natural ingredients from local suppliers along with some more exotic ones from further afield.
Stop Press - Claire is going to make some of
her scrumptious truffles using our Baron Saturday
Food For Thought
Food for Thought in Haxby use traditional methods of slow fermentation in their baking. The result is fantastic flavoursome bread - perfect to go with cheese and chutney. They are even going to bring along a bread they making using our yeast and beer - we can't wait to try it!
If it all gets too exciting then Shipton's village pub, the Dawnay Arms, will be open as a haven from the hurly burly of Brewery Beats.
Only 200 yards from the brewery they will be serving one of our beers on the day and will be open between12-2pm and from 6pm onwards (food served until 9pm).
