Beer Review: We’re Jamming – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

The pubs are back open!!! Which means I’ve been flat out the last couple of days at work and the reviews are coming a bit slower. As such I thought I’d revisit a simpler beer from Aldi’s Hop Foundry range. I recently tried their ‘Sharp Tongue‘ Grapefruit Pale Ale. Disappointing would be the polite way to describe that beer. ‘One of the worst beers I’ve … Continue reading Beer Review: We’re Jamming – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

Beer Review: Sharp Tongue – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

If you’ve followed the blog for a bit now you’ll know that while I love trying and reviewing the fancier side of craft beer I also enjoy testing out some of the supermarket own-brand concoctions. I recently found out that Aldi’s craft beer brand ‘The Hop Foundry’ added some new beers to their range. Today’s brew is ‘Sharp Tongue’, it’s a Grapefruit Pale Ale at … Continue reading Beer Review: Sharp Tongue – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

Beer Review: Low Profile – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

I’m running unfortunately low on No/Low Alcoholic craft beer at the moment but I’m still determined to test out what is available. As such today I’ve gone for an own brand low alcohol brew. From The Hop Foundry (a.k.a another of ALDI’s plethora of craft beer brands) this is ‘Low Profile’ a 0.5% ABV IPA. The beer pours a clear gold with a very quickly … Continue reading Beer Review: Low Profile – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

Beer Review: Brut IPA – 10-4 Brewing (Aldi)

It has been a while since I’ve reviewed an own brand brew and I’ve decided to go with ALDI once more. This is from 10-4 Brewing one of a couple craft beer facades that they use. 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)

Beer Review: ALD IPA // Punk IPA // Anti Establishment – BrewDog & Aldi

Happy New Year folks! Thank you to everyone who has read a post of mine over the last year. It’s been incredibly fun to do and has helped get me through some of these lockdown woes. To ring in 2021 I’ve got a special first post of the year: A Tale of Three Tinnies! A few months back there was some social media banter going … Continue reading Beer Review: ALD IPA // Punk IPA // Anti Establishment – BrewDog & Aldi

Beer Review: Stateside IPA – The Buckthorn Brewery (Aldi)

Where as Lidl seem to only have the Hatherwood Craft Beer Co. for their own range of contract brew beer, Aldi appears to have a couple. Today’s beer is from The Buckthorn Brewery, although it is just another own brand and has been brewed especially for Aldi stores. That said there’s nothing wrong with the own brand brews and they are often effective and a … Continue reading Beer Review: Stateside IPA – The Buckthorn Brewery (Aldi)

Beer Review: Indian Pale Lager – 10-4 Brewing (Aldi)

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)
