I thought I’d make the most of the snowy weather to get some cool beer photos! The first beer to brave the cold was from my local brewery Pretty Decent. True to their word they have in fact released another beer this week. It’s part of a new Single Hop Series they’ve cooked up. Their first highlighted hop is Simcoe in an IPA style. It … Continue reading Beer Review: Simcoe IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Continuing my search for quality non-alcoholic craft beer this week. I’ve had to resort to the supermarkets for now as I’ve ran out of my bottle shop NA craft brews. Lucky Saint is a beer I know fairly well on account that we used to sell it at the pub I work in. I only had it the once quite a while and thought it … Continue reading Beer Review: Lucky Saint – Lucky Saint
My local bottle shop owners had just got this beer in last week and successfully convinced me to give it a try. Based on the two breweries involved I was fairly confident it would be great. ‘Up Late’ is a collaboration between Bristol based Left Handed Giant and the particularly brilliant Falmouth based Verdant.

Titled after the Steve Buscemi 30 Rock meme ‘How Do You Do Fellow Kids’ this is an 8% Double IPA from S43 Brewery. This is my first beer from the County Durham based outfit but I’ve heard good things. Honestly, I did pick this … Continue reading Beer Review: How Do You Do Fellow Kids – S43 Brewery

According to Untapped it appears to have been contract brewed with Hog’s Back whose Christmas beer I reviewed last year. It’s a Brut IPA so the expectation is for … Continue reading Beer Review: Brut IPA – 10-4 Brewing (Aldi)
Today’s beer is one of my local breweries newest offerings! Apparently they have a lot of new beers in the pipeline for the next couple months so expect to see plenty of reviews on those brews. Fitting the Pretty Decent naming format the beer is simply named after the style of beer: East Coast IPA. It comes in at 6.5% ABV and is meant to … Continue reading Beer Review: East Coast IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Dry January may be over but I’m a little hooked on trying to find some stand out alcohol free beers that can hold their own against their boozy counterparts. After the very successful tasting of Big Drops milk stout last week I thought I’d give them another go. ‘Pine Trail’ is a pale ale and a silver medalist at the World Beer Awards. As with … Continue reading Beer Review: Pine Trail – Big Drop Brewing Co.
