Welcome to My Beer Blog

I’ve always wanted to start up a food blog but never really found the time. I love eating more or less anything so it made perfect sense to share that love with other people and give myself a new hobby. Unfortunately with the current situation this is probably the wrong time to start up a food blog. Thankfully I have another passion: beer! So I’ve … Continue reading Welcome to My Beer Blog

Beer Review: 05 19 Off-Tempo – BAD Co.

While also brewing Asda’s own-brand range, BAD Co, have some of their own brews in the supermarket giant. Most of them seem to be part of a range called ‘Off-Tempo’. This particular entry into the series is a Milkshake IPA. As such a hefty dose of lactose has been added to this beer in the hope of giving it a creamier, smoother texture. Visually the … Continue reading Beer Review: 05 19 Off-Tempo – BAD Co.

Beer Review: Oui Chef! – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

My local brewery, Pretty Decent, have got an amazing sounding release schedule for the next couple of weeks which kicked off with this beer I’m reviewing today. ‘Oui Chef!’ is an Oat Cream IPA that I was told is just shy of the ABV threshold to make it a double. It’s got added oats and and lactose to aim for that creamy, soft body that … Continue reading Beer Review: Oui Chef! – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Beer Review: Joker IPA // Double Joker – Williams Bros. Brewing Co

I have sadly missed a couple of days of my October goal: to post everyday this month. An early start at work and a late finish did not leave me time to put out a review. That will not deter me however and despite missing one day I see no reason to not try an post on the rest. So take up for this transgression, … Continue reading Beer Review: Joker IPA // Double Joker – Williams Bros. Brewing Co

Beer Review: Vienna Lager – Wild Craft Brewing

I’ve been trying quite a few lagers recently which is quite unlike me, as typically I only have lager in the form of a certain Danish pilsner. Maybe I’ve got the Oktoberfest bug which has resulted in tasting the more interesting side of arguably one of the less interesting beers styles. ‘Vienna Lager’ is a beer from Wild Craft Brewery and is brewed with the … Continue reading Beer Review: Vienna Lager – Wild Craft Brewing

Beer Review: Rhode Runner – Black Isle Brewery

Not three days into my challenge of posting everyday in October and I almost fail! Well not to be bested by my inability to commit, I’m posting a rather late review of one of the many Black Isle Brewery beers I bought while up in Scotland. The cleverly named ‘Rhode Runner’ is, of course, a New England Pale Ale and comes in at 5.3% ABV. … Continue reading Beer Review: Rhode Runner – Black Isle Brewery

Beer Review: Montezuma’s Chocolate Lager – Hogs Back Brewery

Hogs Back Brewery have collaborated with chocolatier Montezuma’s to create a lager brewed with the cacao nibs used in their ‘Lordy Lord’ dark chocolate. When I first read the description my first thought was ‘there is no way that works’. However, it sounded so weird I simply had to give it a go. It has actually gone on to win a gold award at the … Continue reading Beer Review: Montezuma’s Chocolate Lager – Hogs Back Brewery

Beer Reviews: Oktoberwest – Westerham Brewery

The month of October, in the beer world, is best associated with the biggest beer festival in the world. Oktoberfest! To celebrate I’m setting myself the challenge to post a review everyday for the duration of the month. And to kick it off I am of course going for an Oktoberfest themed beer called ‘Oktoberwest’. Brewed by Westerham brewery in Kent it is a Marzen … Continue reading Beer Reviews: Oktoberwest – Westerham Brewery

Beer Review: Capitalist Hippie ~ Far Out! – Gyle 59

When I first started out this blog, my friend Matty, told me about this brewery near where he lives in Dorset. Gyle 59 is the name of said brewery and what got me intrigued by them, is that they brew a stinging nettle beer! Sadly , that particular beer remains on my bucket list. Instead I picked up ‘Capitalist Hippie’ when I was last down … Continue reading Beer Review: Capitalist Hippie ~ Far Out! – Gyle 59

Beer Review: Imperial Kirsch – Vocation

Through work, I recently got the opportunity to go to Brew London, my first beer festival since Covid. Based in the Printworks in London, Brew London hosted a massive variety of different breweries from across the country and I had an absolutely cracking time. I only ended up buying one can of beer to takeaway, mainly because the lady behind the bar at Vocation is … Continue reading Beer Review: Imperial Kirsch – Vocation
