A slightly momentous review today as it is my 100th! Since starting this little blog I have now reviewed over 100 craft beers which is quite incredible to think. Writing the reviews (as well as drinking the beers) has become a really fun and creative hobby. I haven’t really planned for anything special but to mark the occasion I thought I’d try one of the … Continue reading Beer Review: Shoop – Salt Beer Factory x Pomona Island
Lidl have a new range of beers back in right now! They’ve gone for an all Scottish line up again at incredibly good value, with an average price of just £1.79 a beer. I thought I’d kick off the new range reviewing a beer from my favourite brewery from the last release, Loch Lomond, and their new beer, appropriately named ‘Zoom Time’. It’s a rarely … Continue reading Beer Review: Zoom Time – Loch Lomond Brewery
Another lovely little gift from a friend at work this is another not to distant brewery based out of Dalston, in London in the form of 40FT Brewery. Named after the fact that when they started, they began brewing out of two 20ft shipping containers, this is a can of ‘Dalston Sunrise’ part of their core range. It’s a Hazy Pale Ale at 4.4% ABV … Continue reading Beer Review: Dalston Sunrise – 40ft Brewery
I was in the Peak District very recently with one of my dear friends and while I tried to put beer on the back burner I couldn’t help but pick up a couple from local brewers Peak Ales. The first beer is their classic Golden Ale but this review today is something a little funkier. ‘Cebula’ is part of the breweries experimental ‘Off Peak’ series … Continue reading Beer Review: Cebula – Peak Ales
Treated myself to another beer from my local bottle shop with a completely new brewery for me. This brew is from UnBarred Brewery based out of Brighton and is part of their Single Hop Single Fruit (SHSF) series and is a NEIPA featuring Citra and passion fruit as the stars of the show. I quite like the idea of focusing down on one of each … Continue reading Beer Review: SHSF Citra & Passionfruit – UnBarred Brewery
Today’s beer was a lovely gift from a very generous friend! It’s actually a new brewery for me in the form of London Fields based out of Hackney in East London. This is ‘3 Weiss Monkeys’ which in my opinion is a great play on words considering the style used is a White IPA. The only other White IPA I’ve had was from Loch Lomond … Continue reading Beer Review: 3 Weiss Monkeys – London Fields Brewery
Finally getting around to trying this beer I picked up from my local brewery, Pretty Decent Beer Company. Was actually meant to review this with a friend but I accidentally gave him a can of their Pilsner so unfortunately I will have to wait on doing that review! This is a recently new brew for them and is a can of their ‘Citra Sour’ coming … Continue reading Beer Review: Citra Sour – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Today’s beer review sees us return to something I’ve not done in a while. Well two things actually: a low alcohol beer and a beer from Thornbridge! Always a bit apprehensive picking up AF beers not because I have an inherent dislike to them but more because they often aren’t that great. This is ‘Zero Five’, a low alcohol pale ale named as such because … Continue reading Beer Review: Zero Five -Thornbridge Brewery
It’s been a while since a beer review and they’ve been a bit sporadic this week as a result of me being on holiday. Can’t have everything revolving around beer now can we (although I did pick pick up a couple of brews while I was in the Peak District)! Today’s beer is from acclaimed brewers Neon Raptor based out of Nottingham. Another pick up … Continue reading Beer Review: All Signs Point To Fort Lauderdale – Neon Raptor Brewing Co.
Another BrewDog beer for an even more belated stout Sunday today, another from Morrisons new craft beer range and another nitro twist on a previously released beer. This is ‘Choco Libre’ an 8.2% Mexican Hot Chocolate Stout. The name is likely a pun on Mexican wrestling Lucha Libre but I like to think it’s also a nod to one of my family’s favourite movies the … Continue reading Beer Review: Choco Libre (Nitro Edition) – BrewDog
