When I first started out this blog, my friend Matty, told me about this brewery near where he lives in Dorset. Gyle 59 is the name of said brewery and what got me intrigued by them, is that they brew a stinging nettle beer! Sadly , that particular beer remains on my bucket list. Instead I picked up ‘Capitalist Hippie’ when I was last down … Continue reading Beer Review: Capitalist Hippie ~ Far Out! – Gyle 59
Through work, I recently got the opportunity to go to Brew London, my first beer festival since Covid. Based in the Printworks in London, Brew London hosted a massive variety of different breweries from across the country and I had an absolutely cracking time. I only ended up buying one can of beer to takeaway, mainly because the lady behind the bar at Vocation is … Continue reading Beer Review: Imperial Kirsch – Vocation
I popped into Asda recently, for the first time since University actually, to have a little nosey at what their craft beer range was and see if they’d been keeping up with the other supermarkets. They have a decent selection of beers from other breweries but also have a range brewed exclusively for them. The folks behind this range are Yorkshire based BAD Co (short … Continue reading Beer Review: West Coast Pale – BAD Co. (Asda)
It’s far too long since I’ve reviewed a beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent! It’s not for lack of buying but more a case of still having way too many beers to get through. It’s also my first review since the can rebrand, which has allowed their artist to really go wild with the can wraps. ‘I Can’t Dance Like That’ is a 6% … Continue reading Beer Review: I Can’t Dance Like That – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
The kings of celebrity name puns, Brew York, have a few of their classic, core range beers dotted around the supermarkets these days. I haven’t had the chance to try many of their beers, but the ones I’ve had, have been delicious. ‘Goose Willis’ is a gooseberry sour that was originally brewed with BrewDog in York as part of their annual Collabfest back in 2017. … Continue reading Beer Review: Goose Willis – Brew York
The other day my Dad said he saw a Lemon Cheesecake Sour IPA in Morrisons and asked if I wanted it. I instantly said yes because the only brewery it could have been from was Siren. Now, the reason I was so excited for it was because it was the first sour beer I ever tried. Peter, a sales manager who works for Siren, came … Continue reading Beer Review: Castillian Lemon & Honey Cheesecake – Siren Craft Brew
Lidl have been really keeping the craft beers stocked up with back to back drops of new beers in the last couple of months. As always Scottish brewers 71 Brewing Co are frequent appearance makers on the supermarket shelves. ‘Pink Lemon Loca’ is perhaps one the more interesting sounding beers from 71 Brewing to make their way into Lidl. It’s a 4.5% ABV Lemon and … Continue reading Beer Review: Pink Lemon Loca – 71 Brewing Co.
Hammerton Brewery is a first time feature on the blog but not new for me personally. As a London based brewery I’ve had some of their core range on draft a few times, particularly their N1 pale ale. We’ve also had their flagship beer ‘Crunch’, a peanut butter stout, on draft at work before! This beer, ‘City of Cake’ is a Chocolate Fudge Cake Stout, … Continue reading Beer Review: City of Cake – Hammerton Brewery
I was wandering around Lidl doing the weekly shop recently when out of the corner of my eye I spot something nostalgic. Something very nostalgic indeed. I was instantly drawn to the holy grail of cartoon beer much like how Homer Simpson is. Duff Beer! I would say I was shocked to see such a thing in Lidl, but realistically we’ve all seen far more … Continue reading Beer Review: Duff Beer – Fizz Beverage
I bought quite a few beers when I visited Cromarty Brewing Co. on Scotland’s Black Isle a couple months back. Combined with the mass of beers I already had and have subsequently added I recently enlisted the help of one of my best mates to get through some of the stock! Up first was ‘Not The Foggiest’ a session IPA from the folks at Cromarty. … Continue reading Beer Review: Not The Foggiest – Cromarty Brewing Co.
