Tate St Ives celebrate local Cornish craft beer.

Following the success of the sell-out Tate Modern Tap Takeover events, this summer Tate will be extending the series to Tate St Ives to celebrate local Cornish craft beer. Kicking off on Thursday 28th June with an evening of beer, BBQ and beats, the first Tate St Ives sunset Tap Takeover in collaboration with Harbour Brewing Co. will be hosted on the Café Terrace with exceptional views over Porthmeor Beach.

Tate Tap takeovers provide a fun and informal space for beer makers and beer lovers alike to come together and enjoy the best of the UK’s brews with tastings, talks and activities. Tate are very much looking forward to opening this up to Cornwall beer enthusiasts and showcasing the best of the West Country craft breweries.

Tate has a long association and friendship with Cornish based Harbour Brewing Co, and are therefore delighted to host the first ever Tate St Ives Tap Takeover with them on the Café Terrace where locals and guests of the gallery can enjoy a range of their fantastic brews.

While the sun sets over Porthmeor beach, ice cold Harbour Pilsner will be in full flow for guests to enjoy whilst soaking up smooth tunes provided by a local DJ.

Foodwise, Tate will be working the tongs alongside Cornish BBQ extraordinaire Mac’s BBQ to deliver a meaty menu to compliment the beers. Watch out for his secret BBQ sauce over a pulled pork burger or some glazed pork ribs!


All tickets will include the opportunity to explore Tate St Ive’s “Modern Art and St Ives” and “Patrick Heron” exhibitions after the Gallery has closed to the public and members get 20% off BBQ food.
