Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed a beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent. I’ve been drinking plenty in their taproom but haven’t got around to writing about any of them. Well I’ve picked up a few cans to start documenting the first being this one; 5ft 9 In Cuban Heels. This Double IPA, from a month or so back to be … Continue reading Beer Review: 5ft 9 in Cuban Heels – Pretty Decent Beer 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.
Brew number two from Oldham based Donkeystone is ‘The Notorious NEIPA’; no guesses on where they got the name from. It is of course a New England IPA, coming in at 5.5% ABV. It uses Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe hops so it could be on to a winner if brewed well! This beer poured very lively with far too much head. It also had a … Continue reading Beer Review: The Notorious NEIPA – Donkeystone Brewing Co.
Lidl supermarkets have added a new brewery to their craft beer repertoire in the form of Oldham based Donkeystone Brewing Co. A new brewery for me I picked up a couple of their offerings to give them a whirl. First up is ‘Cotton Clouds’ a craft lager at 4% ABV. Perhaps one of the hardest styles to blow someone away with it is also serves … Continue reading Beer Review: Cotton Clouds – Donkeystone Brewing Co.
Today’s review is another from the ASDA exclusive brewery BAD (Brewing & Distilling) Co. Their Off-Tempo range appears to be the staple line of beers that the stock in the supermarket giant. The range is meant to be a more experimental and unusual selection of beers. I have previously reviewed their Milkshake IPA and this time around I’ve got their DIPA 3 a double IPA … Continue reading Beer Review: 01 19 Off-Tempo DIPA 3 – BAD Co.
Loch Lomond Brewery has become a bit of a staple in Lidl’s craft beer shelves. It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed one of theirs but I’ve had some surprisingly amazing quality beers from the Lidl offerings. ‘Odin’s Beard’ is one the latest to grace the shelves and is a Citra IPA using Kviek Yeast and coming in at 5% ABV. The beer pours a … Continue reading Beer Review: Odin’s Beard – Loch Lomond Brewery
One of the best ever stouts I’ve had was from Bristol based Left Handed Giant so the bar has now been set fairly high for them when it comes to the dark side of the beer world. One of my lovely friends from work got me a couple of beers for Christmas, one of which was ‘Breaker, Breaker’ from the LHG. It’s a 7% Export … Continue reading Beer Review: Breaker, Breaker – Left Handed Giant
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.
London Beer Factory’s ‘Jungle Trip’ is another beer from my supermarket backlog that I have taken far to long to getting around and drinking/reviewing! You can tell I have had this a while as since then the brewery have re-branded with new artwork and logo (although interestingly on their website ‘Jungle Trip’ has maintained the original look). This beer is a New England Pale Ale … Continue reading Beer Review: Jungle Trip – London Beer Factory
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Apologies for the absence of beer reviews in the last couple of weeks. I thought heading into January would mean more time for myself. Who could have guessed that running a pub is a full time gig!! While it has prevented me from writing reviews it certainly hasn’t stopped me from drinking beer. One of my lovely friends from work gave me … Continue reading Beer Review: Mangolicious – Laine Brew Co.
