I’ve taken my newly discovered south coast brewery, Dancing Man, up North with me as well this week. One of the two beers I bought to takeaway when I was down in Southampton, ‘Big Bad Stout’ is exactly what it says on the tin.

The bundle was full of very zany beers and I saved this for last as it sounded like the weirdest of the lot. ‘Cosmic Cafe’ is coffee-sour. I love a nice sour beer and I can get … Continue reading Beer Review: Cosmic Cafe – Fourpure Brewing Co.
