Recreated Whitbread beers from D-Day, 1944 to be served at The Finborough Arms on the 70th Anniversary of the Normandy Landings

The actual date of D-Day - 6th June 1944 - was one of history's best kept secrets. At Whitbread Brewery on Chiswell Street, the day began as any other in wartime. Three brews were planned. At 6am, they mashed Gyle 372, a XX (mild) ale, before the first landing craft hit the beaches. By noon, when brewing had begun for Gyle 373, an India Pale Ale (IPA), the invasion has begun. By midnight, when brewing was underway for Gyle, the beaches were secure and the Battle of Normandy had begun. In 1944, the Finborough Arms was a Whitbread pub. The brews of D-Day will almost certainly have been served here. On 6th June 2014, exactly 70 years later, we will be serving all three once again. Brewer and beer writer Peter Haydon has studied the brewing logs and recreated exactly the same recipes at “A Head in a Hat", his microbrewery in South London. “I have looked at the original Whitbread brewing logs for the day and recreated these three beers as faithfully as I can. I thought it would be an interesting way to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, but then it struck me that whilst you will be able to taste these historic brews, many of the man who waded ashore on 6th June 1944 never got to” - Peter Haydon, Brewer, A Head in a Hat Brewing The event will be attended by James Whitbread, direct descendant of Whitbread Brewery’s founder Samuel, who will speak about his family’s brewing history. The Finborough Arms reopened under its original name and as a traditional public house for the first time in over a decade on 28 February 2014. Without any brewery or pub company ties, the pub trades as an independent freehouse for the first time. Above the Finborough Arms is the award winning Finborough Theatre.

Saturday 7th June: Northumbrian Beer and Music Festival

We are proud to host London’s third annual celebration of Northumbrian culture. The event was first held in 2012 on the 150th Anniversary of the original Blaydon Races, which was immortalised in a song that has been the unofficial anthem of the North East of England ever since. This year, Saturday June 7th is the big day with a line-up of musicians starting at 2.00pm in our main bar. Northumbrian pipers will play between acts and throughout the day. Folk musicians will take their turn to demonstrate the region’s rich musical heritage. The headline act in the evening will be Sir Jac’s Bantamacs, a Geordie rockabilly band. There will also be a line-up of great beers from leading Geordie microbreweries such as Mordue of Wallsend, Anarchy of Morpeth and Cullercoats of North Shields, and food typical of the region including ham and pease pudding stotties! The event is in its third year, having previously been held as a joint event in EC1 pubs The Gunmakers Arms and The Betsey Trotwood. This year, it's being held at the Finborough Arms to bring everything under one roof and take advantage of Earl's Court's superior transport links.

Saturday 10th May - Sunday 11th May 2014 In conjunction with Birrificio Italiano, we are holding the first London edition of the brewery's annual "Pils Pride" event. We'll be show casing BI's own amazing golden pilsners - Tipopils, Delia and Extra Hop - alongside homegrown talent. The craft beer revolution too often concentrates on more extreme styles of beer, forgetting that golden pilsner beers became globally popular for a reason. Forget the industrial lagers and try the very best example of the style right here at the Finborough Arms this weekend. Local breweries showing off their pilsners include Portobello, Windsor & Eton and Fourpure. We'll also have another Italian beer, the mighty 6.7% Czech Norris Imperial Pils from Brewfist.
