Today’s beer comes from DEYA who are considered one of the UK’s best craft brewers. From what I’ve seen regarding ‘Steady Rolling Man’ it is accepted as one of the quintessential examples of a pale ale. So when the opportunity came to pick it up from Premier Hop I felt obligated to! It comes in at a steady 5.2% ABV in an uncharacteristically large, 500ml … Continue reading Beer Review: Steady Rolling Man – DEYA Brewing Company
Today’s review is a slightly different one as I have actually been sent the beer by the brewery to review! Wainwright contacted me over on my Instagram and gifted me a few of the vegan and gluten free edition of their classic golden ale. Part of the Marston’s family of beer, the original has won a Silver Award at the World Beer Awards in 2019. … Continue reading Beer Review: Wainwright (Vegan & Gluten Free) – Marston’s
My first ever low alcohol stout today from a brewery that specialises in creating Non/Low Alcoholic brews. Big Drop are based up in Ipswich and have been brewing since 2015. I grabbed this from my local bottle shop Arch Rivals on recommendation that it’s very close to coming across like an actual beer. ‘Galactic Milk Stout’ is a Silver winner at the World Beer Awards … Continue reading Beer Review: Galactic Milk Stout – Big Drop Brewing Co.
A gluten free dark beer today from a new brewery! Yorkshire based Wold Top do a few gluten free beers in their line up including this 5% Marmalade Porter. This brew has actually won quite a few awards including the country winner at the 2017 World Beer Awards and a third place in the World Gluten Free Awards 2018. So with that in mind the … Continue reading Beer Review: Marmalade Porter – Wold Top Brwery
Today’s beer is another that I grabbed from Premier Hop. The only other Alpha Delta beer I’ve had was technically a Northern Monk collaboration. However, it was absolutely delicious and I’ve been on the hunt to get an Alpha Delta beer from the source itself! ‘Gelos’ is actually a collaboration as well but brewed by Alpha Delta in partnership with a new brewery for me … Continue reading Beer Review: Gelos – Alpha Delta x Drop Project
The last of the three beers gifted to me by my friend Matty just before Christmas. Another brew from Somerset based Cotleigh who’s Christmas beer I tried over the festive period. This is their Permium Ale ‘Barn Owl’ at 4.5% ABV. The vast majority of their beers feature a bird of prey as the name because the brewery is a big supporter of ‘The Hawk … Continue reading Beer Review: Barn Owl – Cotleigh Brewery
A beer I’ve had for a little while now that I picked up in Tesco. A collaboration between Thornbridge and North Brew Co this beer is conveniently named ‘North Bridge’. This brew is a new style for me and perhaps a newer style for the wider world of beer in the form of a Mountain IPA. Supposedly a cross between the bitterness of a West … Continue reading Beer Review: North Bridge – Thornbridge x North Brew Co.
My search for quality alcohol free craft beer for an ever so slightly drier January than usual continues with today’s beer. ‘YES’ from First Chop is vegan, gluten free and 0.5% ABV which on paper does sound like the most boring combo for a beer. However, it’s always good to have an open mind when it comes to beer as anything can surprise you. A … Continue reading Beer Review: YES – First Chop
It’s a new brewery for today’s Stout Sunday and a gluten free one at that. While there are an ever increasing number of gluten free beers available the majority end up being lagers or IPAs. So when my Dad finds an online store selling a variety of GF stouts and porters for the winter he couldn’t be happier. Bought from Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network … Continue reading Beer Review: Hygge Figgy – Brass Castle Brewery
Been dipping into some of my ‘fancier’ beers the last couple of days and this is another one from the folks at Premier Hop. A new brewery again today in the form of Bang the Elephant from Langley Mill near Nottingham. I know you should never judge a book by the cover but I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t pick it up … Continue reading Beer Review: Odissi – Bang the Elephant
