Sips craft ale bar in the Maltings, Salisbury has just celebrated its first anniversary of opening.
We caught up with founder and owner Jacob Price to learn what we can expect from the forthcoming festivities.
“We will be offering a number of our guests’ favourite craft ales from last year which include beers that you can’t get anywhere else,” explains Jacob.
“Two of the favourite Vault City sour beers over the summer were the Vault City tonka black forest gateaux sour and the Iron Brew sour. And if that’s not enough, a top secret Omnipollo beer will also be making an appearance.
“We will also be putting on some music that maintains the usual Sips vibe but with a more interactive element.
“A number of guests have been surprised that we have only been here a year and other people have mentioned how well Sips has fitted into the Salisbury nightlife scene.”
Salisbury artist Ben Tallon (pictured) has been busy adoring the walls of Sips with his own brand of street style art as part of the celebrations. “I love the energy and what Jacob’s trying to achieve at Sips,” says Ben. “I felt there was a connection between my art style and the Sips setup.”
