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: Baby-Faced Assassin – Rooster’s Brewing Co.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was referred to as the ‘Baby-face Assassin’ in his playing days for Manchester United so I thought, with the recent sacking, it was an appropriate time to try the beer of the same name. Rooster’s is a new brewery for me that is based up in Yorkshire. ‘Baby-Face Assassin’ is described as a ‘deceptively drinkable IPA’ due to it coming in at … Continue reading Beer Review: Baby-Faced Assassin – Rooster’s Brewing Co.

Beer Review: Pondera – Thornbridge x Firestone Walker

Thornbridge’s ‘Pondera’ is a beer that I’ve been meaning to try for a long time, having seen it on their Instagram and supermarket shelves for a decent while now. The beer is a collaboration with Californian brewers Firestone Walker and together they have, naturally, brewed a West Coast IPA. In a world full of soft New England beers I always like to give some crisper … Continue reading Beer Review: Pondera – Thornbridge x Firestone Walker

Beer Review: Lobster Tale – Padstow Brewing Co.

Padstow Brewing Comapny, based of course in Padstow, was another new brewery I thought I’d try while I was down in Cornwall last month! The reason I decided to go for this beer specifically, is because 10p of each can sold goes towards the National Lobster Hatchery based in Padstow. It’s a charity that helps conserve vunerbale lobster populations which provide vital income for many … Continue reading Beer Review: Lobster Tale – Padstow Brewing Co.

Beer Review: Doubling Down (Simcoe) – Verdant x Black Flag

Verdant Brewing Company recently released the Doubling Down series. Four single hop Double IPAs brewed in collaboration with three different Cornish breweries. The one I picked up while down in Falmouth was the Simcoe edition which was brewed with Perranporth based Black Flag Brewery. All the beers in the series come in at a respectable 8% ABV to solidify that Double IPA status. Visually the … Continue reading Beer Review: Doubling Down (Simcoe) – Verdant x Black Flag

Beer Review: Back Road East – St Ives Brewery

While on my trip to Cornwall, my friends and I paid the popular seaside town of St Ives a visit. It was only the second time I’d been there since my first year of University. As I always do when I visit somewhere new, I’ve got an eye out for the local bottle shops, breweries and pubs. This time around, the location of choice was … Continue reading Beer Review: Back Road East – St Ives Brewery

Beer Review: People, Money, Space Time – Verdant Brewing Co.

I recently went on holiday to beautiful Cornwall, and more specifically, my old university stomping ground of Falmouth. Falmouth, has recently got a lot more craft beer heavy with a couple of new bottle shops opening up. It is also the home of the wonderful Verdant Brewing Company so of course I had to grab a can or four of their new releases and old … Continue reading Beer Review: People, Money, Space Time – Verdant Brewing Co.

Beer Review: King Slayer – Buxton Brewery

It’s been far too long since I enjoyed a beer from Buxton Brewery (no guesses where they’re from)! However, they continue to have a presence on the supermarket shelves, particularly those of Tesco by the looks. I picked up King Slayer a little while back and have only just got around to give this big boozy double IPA a go. It comes in at a … Continue reading Beer Review: King Slayer – Buxton Brewery

Beer Review: Chapeau Pierre! – Dog Falls Brewing

I have been truly swamped by the pub I work at the moment which has left me less time to drink beer and more importantly less time to write about it! Thankfully, I am now on holiday and will be using some of my downtown productively into to cracking through my review backlog (and of course adding to it too). Dog Falls Brewing is based … Continue reading Beer Review: Chapeau Pierre! – Dog Falls Brewing
