My wonderful family got a variety of incredible sounding beers for my birthday from two Newcastle based brewers: Wylam and By The River. Today’s beer is from the latter. By The River are of course based along the River Tyne. They brew out of a container settlement under the Tyne Bridge on the Gateshead side of the river. ‘Doubleheeder’ is a big Double IPA at … Continue reading Beer Review: Doubleheeder – By The River Brew Co.
Tesco are going to have a fresh drop of new craft beer hitting their shelves sometime next week. In celebration I thought I’d finally get around to reviewing this beer from the previous release. ’15 Mile Round Trip’ is a double IPA brewed in collaboration between Vocation and soon-to-be brewery Sure Shot. The name of the beer actually has it’s own origin story too. It … Continue reading Beer Review: 15 Mile Round Trip – Vocation x Sure Shot
I unfortunately don’t have a stout to review for this Sunday! Instead I’ve got a collaborative beer between the New Zealand Beer Collective and Aberdeen based Fierce Beer. The NZBC appears to be primarily a stockist for New Zealand beers, bringing them to the UK market. However, they also collaborate with some UK breweries and together with Fierce Beer they’ve brewed a few beers, including … Continue reading Beer Review: The Main Event – New Zealand Beer Collective x Fierce Beer
Memes have become increasingly more widespread over the years and have now reached a point where beers are named after them.

This is my first beer from the County Durham based outfit but I’ve heard good things. Honestly, I did pick this … Continue reading Beer Review: How Do You Do Fellow Kids – S43 Brewery

They’ve started a new winter double IPA series and this is number 2. ‘Southern DIPA’ was apparently brewed on the shortest day of the year and of course comes in at a hefty 7.7% ABV. The last DIPA was absolutely gorgeous so I’ve been looking forward to the next edition in this series eagerly. Visually … Continue reading Beer Review: Southern DIPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Pretty Decent Beer Co. are my local brewery and they make cracking beer, which is why I stuck them in my Instagram giveaway! When I went to pick up my choice of prizes I saw they’d also released a new beer. A Double IPA brewed over Lockdown 2 and apparently the first in a series of winter DIPAs from the guys under the arches. According … Continue reading Beer Review: Double IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Today’s review is another heavy hitter ABV wise. I’ve returned to another of the Fourpure ‘Globetrotter’ which have been simply amazing in my opinion. Very creative beer ideas that have been executed well. This one is ‘Castaway’ a Mai Tai Double IPA coming in at a massive 8% ABV. I like the idea of cocktail inspired beers and I think the orange citrus of Mai … Continue reading Beer Review: Castaway – Fourpure Brewing Co.
