Continuing my beer clear out extravaganza with a stout from another new brewery for me! Frisky Bear is based up North in Leeds, which I actually visited the other day. It’s been a little while since I’ve had a dark beer, mostly because almost all the ones I have are heavy hitters in the ABV department. ‘Under Promise, Over Deliver’ is substantially lighter at 4.5% … Continue reading Beer Review: Under Promise, Over Deliver – Frisky Bear Brewing Co.
The supermarket beers that Northern Monk put out are of a consistently high quality so I was very much looking forward to giving this boozy collaboration a go. ‘Eternal Haze’ is a Double dry-hopped Double IPA at 8% ABV and is a twist on Northern Monk’s core range beer ‘Eternal’, which is a, substantially lighter, session IPA. I actually had the original on draft when … Continue reading Beer Review: Eternal Haze – Northern Monk x Stigbergets
Shepherd Neame brewery was established in 1698 which purportedly makes them Britain’s oldest brewer, a rather incredible feat if you ask me. They have a variety of different beer lines now including the Spitfire range and the Whitstable Bay series, however, this IPA is from the their classic collection of beers. I picked it up in Lidl, who currently have a couple Shepherd Neame brews, … Continue reading Beer Review: India Pale Ale (Classic Collection) – Shepherd Neame
I’m desperately trying to get through my beers stock at the moment as I have far too many. The good thing about this problem is I’m getting to try lots of beer from breweries new to me, including this one. Love Lane are based in the heart of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle and I picked up their beer, ‘Baltic Berliner’, in Lidl not too long ago. … Continue reading Beer Review: Baltic Berliner – Love Lane Brewery
It’s been a long old while since I last made an entry into the Pub Spotlight section of my blog. I believe pubs are such an important part of communities and each one is so different, I’ve simply been at work so much I’ve not had a chance to visit quite as many as I’d like. However, while I was up in Scotland a couple … Continue reading Balintore Inn – Balintore, Tain, Scotland
Today’s beer comes from a new brewery for me! Nightjar Brew Co. is based in Hebden Bridge and is in fact a rebrand and continuation of a previous brewery known as Slightly Foxed. When there are so many breweries about at the moment, I particularly enjoy trying one of the many I haven’t heard about. ‘You Had Me At Hazy’ is a Double dry-hopped IPA … Continue reading Beer Review: You Had Me At Hazy – Nightjar Brew Co
I’ve had a few North Brewing beers in the past but they have all been from their supermarket range. Following them on Instagram for almost a year now, they’ve been putting out some amazing looking brews. So when I saw this, in one of local corner shops of all places, I didn’t hesitate to grab it. I originally had this beer, ‘Golden Milk’, on a … Continue reading Beer Review: Golden Milk – North Brewing x Fieldwork
While visiting Cromarty Brewery we’ve grabbed lunch in a little cafe/pizza spot in the town itself that also doubled up as a gift shop. Some of these gifts available in Sutor Creek Cafe happened to be local beers. I had never heard of Dog Falls Brewing, who are based on the outskirts of Inverness, and decided to grab a few of their cans. ‘Colloidoscope’ seemed … Continue reading Beer Review: Colloidoscope – Dog Falls Brewing
