The supermarket beers that Northern Monk put out are of a consistently high quality so I was very much looking forward to giving this boozy collaboration a go. ‘Eternal Haze’ is a Double dry-hopped Double IPA at 8% ABV and is a twist on Northern Monk’s core range beer ‘Eternal’, which is a, substantially lighter, session IPA. I actually had the original on draft when … Continue reading Beer Review: Eternal Haze – Northern Monk x Stigbergets
Today’s beer comes from a new brewery for me! Nightjar Brew Co. is based in Hebden Bridge and is in fact a rebrand and continuation of a previous brewery known as Slightly Foxed. When there are so many breweries about at the moment, I particularly enjoy trying one of the many I haven’t heard about. ‘You Had Me At Hazy’ is a Double dry-hopped IPA … Continue reading Beer Review: You Had Me At Hazy – Nightjar Brew Co
While visiting Cromarty Brewery we’ve grabbed lunch in a little cafe/pizza spot in the town itself that also doubled up as a gift shop. Some of these gifts available in Sutor Creek Cafe happened to be local beers. I had never heard of Dog Falls Brewing, who are based on the outskirts of Inverness, and decided to grab a few of their cans. ‘Colloidoscope’ seemed … Continue reading Beer Review: Colloidoscope – Dog Falls Brewing
The moment have finally come. This is the last of the Wylam beers that I own. I’ve saved what Wylam are known best for until last; hoppy IPAs. ‘You Can’t Download The Future’ is a 7.4% ABV IPA featuring Citra Leaf, Strata and Galaxy. I’m going to miss these Geordie brewed beers so I made sure to savour this one till the last drop! Visually … Continue reading Beer Review: You Can’t Download the Future – Wylam Brewery
Today’s review is another beer that I took up with me to bonnie Scotland last week! I’ve always liked Northern Monk and they dropped a few new beers into the supermarkets a couple of months back. This one is called ‘Faith in Futures’ and it is as double dry-hopped IPA at 6.5% ABV. It’s a collaboration with artist Insa but the beer is also a … Continue reading Beer Review: Faith in Futures – Northern Monk
I was recently in Southampton seeing some friends, so naturally the first thing I check is what the local breweries are! I saw Dancing Man pop up on Google Maps and my mate said it was really popular. While we were there, I sunk about four different pints of which ‘Did You See The Size Of That Chicken?’ was my absolute favourite. I decided to … Continue reading Beer Review: Did You See The Size Of That Chicken? – Dancing Man Brewery
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.
My local brewery have taken a recent departure from their single-hop series to create some multi-hopped beers. The first one I’m trying is this pale ale hopped with Sabro, Mosaic and Idaho-7. I’m told it’s the first time they’ve used Sabro and that they were excited to brew with it. It comes in at a light and sessionable 4.5% ABV. The beer pours a gorgeous, … Continue reading Beer Review: Sabro Mosaic & Idaho-7 Pale Ale – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Today’s beer review is a little treat from my manager at work. Yeastie Boys are originally from New Zealand but have expanded their brewing operation into Australia and of course here in the UK. In the UK they use Utopian Brewing as their brewers to help make their recipes come to life for us here. I’ve had a couple of their beers before and you … Continue reading Beer Review: Devil May Care – Yeastie Boys
I found another railway arch bottle shop and bar, near where I live, recently and I thought I’d pay them a visit and grab some beers. I went for some new breweries including this one from Hemel Hempstead based Mad Squirrel. ‘Hopfest’ is their gluten free option in the form of a pale ale at 3.8% ABV. Visually the beer pours a slightly hazy-gold straw … Continue reading Beer Review: Hopfest – Mad Squirrel Brewery
