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
Today’s review is from my cracking local brewery Pretty Decent Beer Co based out of Forest Gate. ‘The Even Greater Love Story’ is a Double IPA version of the their core range beer ‘Greatest Love Story’, a beer I regularly stock in my own pub . It is single hopped with one of the most popular hops going, Simcoe, and comes in at 8% ABV. … Continue reading Beer Review: The Even Greater Love Story – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed a beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent. I’ve been drinking plenty in their taproom but haven’t got around to writing about any of them. Well I’ve picked up a few cans to start documenting the first being this one; 5ft 9 In Cuban Heels. This Double IPA, from a month or so back to be … Continue reading Beer Review: 5ft 9 in Cuban Heels – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
London Beer Factory’s ‘Jungle Trip’ is another beer from my supermarket backlog that I have taken far to long to getting around and drinking/reviewing! You can tell I have had this a while as since then the brewery have re-branded with new artwork and logo (although interestingly on their website ‘Jungle Trip’ has maintained the original look). This beer is a New England Pale Ale … Continue reading Beer Review: Jungle Trip – London Beer Factory
My local brewery, Pretty Decent, have got an amazing sounding release schedule for the next couple of weeks which kicked off with this beer I’m reviewing today. ‘Oui Chef!’ is an Oat Cream IPA that I was told is just shy of the ABV threshold to make it a double. It’s got added oats and and lactose to aim for that creamy, soft body that … Continue reading Beer Review: Oui Chef! – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
I am up in gorgeous sunny Scotland this week for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary and I thought I’d take some beer with me up north. The first beer on the tour is from my local brewery Pretty Decent and their latest single hop series beer. ‘Cryo Pop’ is the newest hop strain to come out of hop giants Yakima Chief (owners of Mosaic and … Continue reading Beer Review: Cryo Pop – Pretty Decent IPA
Today I’m returning back to my local brewery with their other latest release. It’s an IPA featuring Mosaic, once again, but with the headlining hop being Strata this time, rather than Sabro. This is one of Pretty Decent Beer Co’s strongest beers of late, coming in at 6.5%. When I spoke to them about this beer the other the day they were very happy with … Continue reading Beer Review: Strata & Mosaic – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Your eyes do not deceive you, this is not a beer review but a Taproom Talk entry on my blog! It has been far too many months since we’ve been able to have a drink at a taproom and since I’ve been stuck at the pub most days, since the country has reopened slightly, I’ve only recently made it out to have a drink! A … Continue reading Mother Kelly’s (Stratford)
Today’s beer is a rather wacky sounding one from the folks over at London based brewery Exale. ‘Krankie’, named after the famous Scottish comedy act, is of course an Iron Brew flavoured sour beer. For those that have never heard of Irn-Bru it is the iconic drink from Scotland (just after whisky of course)! It’s a fizzy drink that has an almost indescribable flavour but … Continue reading Beer Review: Krankie – Exale Brewing
Following up from their Single Hop Series my local brewery Pretty Decent are looking to get a little funkier with some of their upcoming brews. Their latest offering is a Milkshake IPA with heavy amounts of pineapple and passion fruit added in. I’ve never had a milkshake IPA before but I have had plenty of beers that have added lactose. The distinction is the combination … Continue reading Beer Review: Milkshake IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
