Beer Review: The Future is Uncertain – Verdant Brewing Co.

One of my lovely friends and colleagues at work got me some beer for Christmas, one of which included my favourite South West brewery, the Falmouth based Verdant! ‘The Future is Uncertain’ is an 8% DIPA featuring a triple drop of New Zealand’s finest hops; Motueka, Nelson Sauvin and (a new one for me) Waimea. Visually, the beer looks absolutely insane. Pure mango juice looking … Continue reading Beer Review: The Future is Uncertain – Verdant Brewing Co.

Beer Review: Headband – Verdant Brewing Co.

I’ve got quite a few Verdant Beers in my fridge at the moment, which is a great problem to have as their beers are consistently fantastic. I like to grab their beers when I can simply because they are based in the same town I went to University in: the wonderful Falmouth in Cornwall! ‘Headband’ is one of their more recognizable beers and is regularly … Continue reading Beer Review: Headband – Verdant Brewing Co.

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. 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

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
