Today’s beer review is on the second of two beers my wonderful girlfriend brought me back from Other Half while on her trip to New York. This was the one that I was really looking forward to trying from the moment she sent the menu to me at the taproom she was at. ‘Triple Mosaic Daydream’, as implied, is a triple IPA of the oat … Continue reading Beer Review: Triple Mosaic Daydream – Other Half
My incredible girlfriend went to New York this year and brought me back a couple of beers from one of the USA’s, and even the world’s, most hyped and well known breweries in Other Half. They were founded in 2014 in Brooklyn and have quickly grown to add more locations in the state and further. The first of the two beers I tried was ‘Green … Continue reading Beer Review: Green City – Other Half
Just a couple stops on the train for me in Leyton lies Gravity Well brewing company under the railway arches. While they are featuring for the first time on my blog I have visited the taproom itself. I also got fairly drunk as they mostly make punchy ABV beers and I’d forgotten to eat (incredibly rookie error, I know)! I bought ‘Symmetries of Nature’ for … Continue reading Beer Review: Symmetries of Nature – Gravity Well
I bought a selection of beers from a fantastic zero waste and bottle shop in Leytonstone, East London called Stone Mini Mart who have an insane range of craft beers at very reasonable prices compared to others I’ve seen. First up from this selection is another beer review from Cornwall’s premier top of the hops brewery Verdant, based down in Falmouth. ‘Little Mountains We Move’ … Continue reading Beer Review: Little Mountains We Move – Verdant Brewing Co.
Nestled away in Devon, along the coast, is the town of Beer! Naturally when I was there a (fair) while ago I had to buy a ‘Beer from Beer’. Sadly it appears that both beer and the brewery are no longer in existence. The brewery was based in the town of Lyme Regis and it appears were brewing this beer especially for Rock Villa Off-Licence … Continue reading Beer Review: Beer From Beer – Town Mill Brewery
A tipple from Christmas day itself! A recent addition to the craft beer shelves of Lidl, Cold Town Beer, like many that appear on the budget supermarkets shelves, is from Scotland. Edinburgh to be precise. A fairly recent brewery, having started in 2018, they had a couple of weird sounding beers that naturally I had to pick up. First on the roster is their ‘Pornstar … Continue reading Beer Review: Pornstar Martini Ale – Cold Town Beer
And thus the Christmas backlog posts begin! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas with friends, family and beer much like I did. I’ve drank plenty of beers (with lots more still to be drank) and as such have a bunch of beers ready to hit the review chopping block. First up today I thought I’d review some real ale with Three Tuns Brewery’s ‘XXX … Continue reading Beer Review: XXX The Pale Ale – Three Tuns Brewery
Lidl supermarkets are still on fine form when it comes to stocking a fairly wide variety of craft beers, particularly from Scottish breweries. Dundee’s 71 Brewing have been a staple in the Lidl lineup with a variety of styles and varying quality. Today’s review is titled ‘Wee Zesty’ and it is a 4% ‘Slushy’ Sour flavoured with Lemon Verbena. Despite the photo, the beer pours … Continue reading Beer Review: Wee Zesty – 71 Brewing Co.
I’ve actually recently changed jobs but during the last couple of months at my previous site I was stocking quite a few beers from Battersea based Mondo Brewing Company. As a result I got the occasional special thrown my way, one of which is the beer up for review today. ‘Verhext’ is a West Coast IPA brewed with that ever popular Kveik yeast strain. Coming … Continue reading Beer Review: Verhext – Mondo x St Austell
When I saw this beer pop up on the shelves of Morrison’s booze aisle I couldn’t believe it. This Northern Monk collaboration with one of frozen food’s most iconic brands ‘Aunt Bessie’s’ was released around the time I first started this blog, as a one off special. It appears, however, that there has been a re-brew of the beer for the shelves of Morrison’s supermarkets. … Continue reading Beer Review: Jam Roly Poly – Northern Monk x Aunt Bessie’s
