Beer News from Tate Eats

Back for autumn 2022, the Tap Takeover series from Tate Eats illuminates and champions Britain’s best craft brewers and the artistic influence behind the beers.

Following the recent Tap Takeover with Burning Sky’s ‘Victoire’ Beer – which is now available to buy within the restaurant and bar spaces, we now look forward to the next collaboration between Drop Project x Tate Coffee.

Upcoming takeover:

‘Drop Project X Tate Coffee’ on 24th November

Andrew Downs, Operations Director and official beer geek at Tate Eats, has developed an inspired brewing programme for Tate. “We’ve produced great beer in collaborative brewing projects for nearly 20 years. Tate Eats delivers an excellent experience for visitors. The Takeovers work with our mission to champion British craft beer while amplifying that Tate Eats has exciting, innovative beverages at its core.”


South London brewery Drop Project have collaborated with Tate Coffee on a new brew utilising one of Tate Coffee’s most popular ranges, Juliana GuevaraGrown on a farm by a husband-and-wife duo in Huila, Colombia, they too seek sustainability with their approaches that maintain the conditions of both soils and species.

The Drop Project has worked with Tate Eats on numerous adventures in beer including the delicious “Haze” and Kusama-inspired NEIPA, then “All of Us” Pale Ale, a three-way collaboration with Tate + Queer Brewing. Drop Project was co-founded by three adventure enthusiasts who conveniently all have a passion for beer, its craft, engineering and taste. They use modern technology to create fresh and intriguing flavours, while maintaining a consistent premium quality, which makes working with them an inspiring venture.

The product will use hops sourced from Larkin’s Brewery, a farm in Chiddingstone run by a close-knit family team, who have had a hand in growing hops since Tudor times. Every September, Larkins welcome back local volunteers from nearby villages to help with the hop picking and to relive a tradition from their childhood.

Tate Britain is home to a large coffee roastery. Its Gender Equality Coffee Project recognises producers and professionals of all ages throughout the supply chain worldwide to create a selection of incredible coffees.

The goal of Tate Eats’s Tap Takeovers is to recognise and celebrate the finesse and flair of local British brewers and foster the growing intersection of craft beer and art. Many of the breweries taking part have also developed bespoke beers to coincide with gallery collections, a specific work of art, or a featured exhibition.

Tate Modern, 5 October 2022 – 12 March 2023
Open daily 10.00 – 18.00

Tate Modern presents a once-in-a-generation exhibition of paintings, watercolours and drawings by Paul Cezanne (1839-1906). Famously referred to as the “greatest of us all” by Claude Monet, Cezanne remains a pivotal figure in modern painting who gave license to generations of artists to break the rules. Created amid a rapidly accelerating world, his works focus on the local and the everyday, concentrating on the artist’s own personal experiences to make sense of the chaos and uncertainty of modern life.

The EY Exhibition: Cezanne will bring together around 80 carefully selected works from collections in Europe, Asia, North and South America, giving UK audiences their first opportunity in over 25 years to explore the breadth of Cezanne’s career. It will feature key examples of his iconic still life paintings, Provençal landscapes, portraits and bather scenes, including over 20 works never seen in the UK before. New research into the colours, compositions and techniques used in these works reveals how the artist’s bold approach challenged conventions and in ways that continue to influence painters working today.
