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.
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.

Hopefully this is the dawn of a new part of the blog when we eventually reopen. To me pubs are so important to communities and I think in these … Continue reading Pub Spotlight: The Rookwood Village – Leytonstone, London
Today’s beer is a lovely little treat from my local railway arch bar/restaurant, Tracks. Before I start the review I just want to say in the wake of Lockdown 2.0, if you have the means, support your local businesses. They can all really use the help at the moment! Five Points Brewing Co., based out of Hackney, is making a first appearance on the blog. … Continue reading Beer Review: Brick Field Brown – The Five Points Brewing Co.
