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 we return to one of my favourite aspects of the blog: Taproom Talk! Courtesy of work I got the opportunity to visit North London base Two Tribes’ very new taproom. Having only just opened when restriction began lifting on April 12th Campfire is situated in the Tileyard, North London in between Camden and Islington and surrounded by various music studios and offices. The taproom … Continue reading Campfire, Two Tribes 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.
It’s Lorenzo Beer Reviews’ one year anniversary today! I’ve had an absolute blast writing on this blog for the past year so thank you to everyone who has read one of my posts. Here’s to another year of drinking far too much beer! Instead of going for a big, expensive hype beer I thought I’d stick to my roots and try one from Lidl’s ongoing … Continue reading Beer Review: Gear Shifter – 71 Brewing Co.
Since pubs have reopened I’ve only just managed to make it down to my awesome local brewery Pretty Decent. They’ve been knocking out the beers at their usual weekly rate so I had a few to catch up on. This brew saw them return to their Single Hop Series with the featured hop being the ever reliable Mosaic. This beer actually sold out in record … Continue reading Beer Review: Mosaic IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
It’s Wednesday everybody and as such I’ve gone for an appropriately named beer. ‘Big Wednesday’ is an IPA from Harbour Brewing who are another new brewery for me! They are based out of Bodmin in Cornwall. Those who know me, know that simply being based in Cornwall increases the chance that I will love the beer! It comes in at 5.6% ABV and I picked … Continue reading Beer Review: Big Wednesday – Harbour Brewing Co.
As I previously mentioned, my lovely parents got me some Wylam beers to go alongside my By The River ones! The Newcastle based brewery have been going for 15 years now and I have had one of the beers previously. Before I got into the rest of the brews I thought I’d try what is considered their flagship: ‘Jakehead’. It’s a described as a Supercharged … Continue reading Beer Review: Jakehead – Wylam Brewery
It’s been a long while since I’ve had a Buxton Brewery beer! ‘LupulusX’ is their Single Hop Series where the recipe for the beers stay the same except for the hop variety used, which changes each time. In this case it is of course Citra. I picked this beer up from Tesco which recently released a new line up of craft beer. With a Club … Continue reading Beer Review: LupulusX (Citra) – Buxton Brewery
Following up from their Single Hop Series my local brewery Pretty Decent are looking to get a little funkier with some of their upcoming brews. Their latest offering is a Milkshake IPA with heavy amounts of pineapple and passion fruit added in. I’ve never had a milkshake IPA before but I have had plenty of beers that have added lactose. The distinction is the combination … Continue reading Beer Review: Milkshake IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
My wonderful family got a variety of incredible sounding beers for my birthday from two Newcastle based brewers: Wylam and By The River. Today’s beer is from the latter. By The River are of course based along the River Tyne. They brew out of a container settlement under the Tyne Bridge on the Gateshead side of the river. ‘Doubleheeder’ is a big Double IPA at … Continue reading Beer Review: Doubleheeder – By The River Brew Co.
