Dry January may be over but I’m a little hooked on trying to find some stand out alcohol free beers that can hold their own against their boozy counterparts. After the very successful tasting of Big Drops milk stout last week I thought I’d give them another go. ‘Pine Trail’ is a pale ale and a silver medalist at the World Beer Awards. As with … Continue reading Beer Review: Pine Trail – Big Drop Brewing Co.
Today’s review is a slightly different one as I have actually been sent the beer by the brewery to review! Wainwright contacted me over on my Instagram and gifted me a few of the vegan and gluten free edition of their classic golden ale. Part of the Marston’s family of beer, the original has won a Silver Award at the World Beer Awards in 2019. … Continue reading Beer Review: Wainwright (Vegan & Gluten Free) – Marston’s
My first ever low alcohol stout today from a brewery that specialises in creating Non/Low Alcoholic brews. Big Drop are based up in Ipswich and have been brewing since 2015. I grabbed this from my local bottle shop Arch Rivals on recommendation that it’s very close to coming across like an actual beer. ‘Galactic Milk Stout’ is a Silver winner at the World Beer Awards … Continue reading Beer Review: Galactic Milk Stout – Big Drop Brewing Co.
A gluten free dark beer today from a new brewery! Yorkshire based Wold Top do a few gluten free beers in their line up including this 5% Marmalade Porter. This brew has actually won quite a few awards including the country winner at the 2017 World Beer Awards and a third place in the World Gluten Free Awards 2018. So with that in mind the … Continue reading Beer Review: Marmalade Porter – Wold Top Brwery
My search for quality alcohol free craft beer for an ever so slightly drier January than usual continues with today’s beer. ‘YES’ from First Chop is vegan, gluten free and 0.5% ABV which on paper does sound like the most boring combo for a beer. However, it’s always good to have an open mind when it comes to beer as anything can surprise you. A … Continue reading Beer Review: YES – First Chop
It’s a new brewery for today’s Stout Sunday and a gluten free one at that. While there are an ever increasing number of gluten free beers available the majority end up being lagers or IPAs. So when my Dad finds an online store selling a variety of GF stouts and porters for the winter he couldn’t be happier. Bought from Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network … Continue reading Beer Review: Hygge Figgy – Brass Castle Brewery
Trying to clear the beer review backlog today in time for Christmas as I recently bought a lot of craft beer online while a tad tipsy. Like going to the supermarket when your hungry, it’s never a good combination! So we’ve got a review double bill today and our second is from Siren Craft Brew. I really like Siren and it’s been far too long … Continue reading Beer Review: Lumina – Siren Craft Brew
Been a fan of Thornbridge for a little bit now and of all their core range beers, this is the one I was most looking forward to trying. ‘Satzuma’ is, naturally, a satsuma pale ale but importantly also gluten free. It’s one of the beers from my Dad’s advent calendar but he asked if I wanted to grab a quick snap and a little sip … Continue reading Beer Review: Satzuma – Thornbridge Brewery
Today’s beer is from Manchester gluten free beer OGs First Chop. This beer is actually from an Christmas present I got my Dad. I gifted him a gluten free beer advent calendar with explicit mention that I was not planning on reviewing any. Instead he generously has given me a taste of this one to do a write up. ‘JAM’ is a mango pale ale … Continue reading Beer Review: JAM – First Chop
Another of the beers that my Dad picked up from Ghostfish Brewing Company via Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network (link down below). This is ‘Kick Step’ an IPA brewed in celebration of Washington State hops, where the brewery is based. So this is hopefully going to be a classic West Coast style beer and a little change from the New England IPA heavy reviews I’ve … Continue reading Beer Review: Kick Step – Ghostfish Brewing Company
