The old man really enjoyed Bellfield Brewery’s ‘Lawless Village IPA’ so when he saw they had an offer for a mixed case of their gluten free beers he did not hesitate. Perhaps the most anticipated brew of the bunch was ‘Daft Days’ a 5.5% ABV porter. Dark beers seem to be in short supply in the gluten free beer sector and despite all his attempts … Continue reading Beer Review: Daft Days – Bellfield Brewery
Been having a lot of gluten free beers lately so be prepared for a slightly GF focus in the near future. However, for now, I’ve still got a few Lidl beers kicking around including today’s beer ‘Tarocco’s Modern Life’ by 71 Brewing. A brilliant pun between the 90s kid show Rocco’s Modern Life and a variety of blood orange this is a sour IPA at … Continue reading Beer Review: Tarocco’s Modern Life – 71 Brewing
After a trip across the pond with yesterday’s review, we return to some of the Lidl range. Sadly it’s my last Loch Lomond brewery beer. They’ve been some of the most consistently quality beers I’ve had the pleasure of trying since setting up the blog. This is their ‘Southern Summit’ an American Pale Ale at a sessionable 4% ABV. And, as always with Lidl beers, … Continue reading Beer Review: Southern Summit – Loch Lomond Brewery
My Dad was recently reminiscing about the last time he was in the US of A when he’d had a lovely gluten free beer in Seattle. After a bit of digging the brewery in question of said beer was Ghostfish. Distributed exclusively in the UK by Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network (https://taylorsgfbeers.co.uk/) at a very reasonable price, he bought himself a mixed case to reminisce. … Continue reading Beer Review: Ghost Pepper Saison – Ghostfish Brewing Company
It’s Stout Sunday today, hope everyone has had a good weekend so far! Although we’ve technically got a porter and not a stout. Been a little bit since I’ve had a beer from one of my personal favourite breweries, Northern Monk. I think this has been out for a while now but I picked up ‘Stars & Stripes’ from Tesco when I went to grab … Continue reading Beer Review: Stars & Stripes – Northern Monk
I had completely forgotten I had this beer. I bought the Fourpure Brewing Co ‘Globetrotter’ bundle over 3 months ago, which in Covid time is essentially an eternity. The bundle was full of very zany beers and I saved this for last as it sounded like the weirdest of the lot. ‘Cosmic Cafe’ is coffee-sour. I love a nice sour beer and I can get … Continue reading Beer Review: Cosmic Cafe – Fourpure Brewing Co.
As I mentioned in my previous North Brew Co review, Tesco have a few of their beers in at the moment. Today’s beer is called ‘Lost Cosmonaut’. It’s a double dry hopped IPA at 6.0% ABV. The North beers I’ve had so far have been solid and certainly tasty but not incredibly stand out. Here’s to hoping a bit of dry hopping will change that … Continue reading Beer Review: Lost Cosmonauts – North Brewing Co.
In the same way Lidl have the Hatherwood Craft Beer Company, the good folks at Aldi have 10-4 Brewing. It’s their own-brand disguised as an independent brewer. I thought I’d pop into Aldi for the first time in ages to try and grab the much talked about BrewDog collaboration. While I sadly did not get that, I did pick up a selection of other beers. … Continue reading Beer Review: Indian Pale Lager – 10-4 Brewing (Aldi)
Sadly winter is coming thick and fast and the number of indoor photos is only going up! Magic Rock have a couple of new brews in the latest Tesco release. Today’s beer is the brilliantly named ‘Murk-Life Balance’ and as you’d expect it is a hazy pale ale. It comes in at 5% ABV. Although the image doesn’t do it justice, the beer pours a … Continue reading Beer Review: Murk-Life Balance – Magic Rock Brewing
We return to the Lidl range for today’s review. As far as I know they are still available, so dip into the world of craft beer with some great bargains. Another beer from Scottish brewers Drygate, this is a White IPA a style I’m quickly becoming a massive fan of. Coming in at a fairly hefty 6.7% this is ‘Hoppi Polla’. Visually there is a … Continue reading Beer Review: Hoppi Polla – Drygate Brewing Co.
