Tell us about Piglove By the River! Where it is, when you open and what you do!
Piglove by the River is our summer pop-up venue! Working together with @cituuk we have managed to create an amazing open space perfect for the summer weather! Offering great beer in a chill area by the river.
We serve Piglove beers as well as North Brewing beers. Also, we always have some nice Cider and soft drinks! We also have a food court area offering amazing local street food from all over Yorkshire.
Our opening times are April-October
Can you tell us about the name Pig Love and how the idea came about?
Piglove Brewing Co. is our indi craft brewery, based in Leeds. ‘Brave Brewing with Eccentric Taste’ is what we’re all about! Not content with simply being part of the craft brewing revolution, we want to push things forward in our own style. Originally hailing from the far-away lands of Venezuela, we add an Amazonic twist and wanderlust to all our beers. ‘Piglove’ comes from the Venezuelan expression ‘cochino amor’, which is used to describe a love for something that is so big, raw and passionate that it becomes filthy and absurd. For pigs it’s mud, for us it’s craft beer and brewing. There’s nothing we love more than getting messy in the brewery, and working on new ideas!
Tell us about a product you’re currently stocking that you’re really excited about and that people NEED to come and try!
We are stocking all our Piglove beers as well as some amazing beers from North Brew Co. It’s all awesome!
What exciting plans do you have for 2022? – events – expansion – or just keeping on keeping on excelling in what you do!
We are working on excelling in what we have and enjoying the summer as much as we can. and hosting some Jazz sessions once or twice a month on Sundays (4PM-6 PM). Another plan that we are working on is potentially open during wintertime!
