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
For my birthday earlier this year my Black Country residing friend, Hollie, got me a selection of classic real ales from the region to try. Having visited her previously I can already say that they certainly know how to make proper ales in the midlands! My usual go to brewery while I’m up there is Black Country Ales, which today’s beer from. A pub owning … Continue reading Beer Review: Chain Ale – Black Country Ales
Naturally, being in Scotland, I have of course purchased a few beers from some classic Scottish brewers. This beer is from Inveralmond Brewery, who I haven’t heard of, and who are the sister brewery to the more widely known Innis & Gunn. Long time readers will know that golden ales are my favourite traditional ale style so this was a no brain pick up in … Continue reading Beer Review: Ossian – Inveralmond Brewery
Today’s review is a slightly different one as I have actually been sent the beer by the brewery to review!

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
With the current situation I don’t think I’d honestly be able to keep Dry January going! However, I’ve thought I’d try and cut back a little this month. I picked up a selection of alcohol free beers from my last trip to Morrisons to give them a go and see if there are any readily available low or no alcohol beers that also taste good. … Continue reading Beer Review: Without (Gold) – St Peter’s Brewery
Today’s beer review is my second pick up from my trip to the Peak District. It’s another from Peak Ales but this time a more subdued beer from their core range, rather than the zany ‘Cebula’. It’s their ‘Chatsworth Gold’ a golden ale brewed with honey from the Chatsworth Estate and coming in at 4.6% ABV. Visually the beer pours clear amber in the glass … Continue reading Beer Review: Chatsworth Gold – Peak Ales
After digging through my trove of beers I’ve unearthed one last treat from my good friend Matty. Part of the beers that he gave me, what feels like a decade ago now but is realistically only been a month. This is another new brewery for me in the form of Bristol born Butcombe Brewing Co. This is their flagship ‘Gold’ golden ale at 4.4% ABV … Continue reading Beer Review: Gold – Butcombe Brewery Co.
