Beer Review: King Slayer – Buxton Brewery

It’s been far too long since I enjoyed a beer from Buxton Brewery (no guesses where they’re from)! However, they continue to have a presence on the supermarket shelves, particularly those of Tesco by the looks. I picked up King Slayer a little while back and have only just got around to give this big boozy double IPA a go. It comes in at a … Continue reading Beer Review: King Slayer – Buxton Brewery

Beer Review: Eternal Haze – Northern Monk x Stigbergets

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

Beer Review: You Had Me At Hazy – Nightjar Brew Co

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.

Beer Review: Colloidoscope – Dog Falls Brewing

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

Beer Review: You Can’t Download the Future – Wylam Brewery

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

Beer Review: Faith in Futures – Northern Monk

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
