Today’s beer is one of my local breweries newest offerings! Apparently they have a lot of new beers in the pipeline for the next couple months so expect to see plenty of reviews on those brews. Fitting the Pretty Decent naming format the beer is simply named after the style of beer: East Coast IPA. It comes in at 6.5% ABV and is meant to … Continue reading Beer Review: East Coast IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Been a couple of days since my last review. The pubs are opening back up in London today so I’ve been slightly swamped at work. Today’s review is going to be from the fantastically consistent Leeds based Northern Monk. ‘Scafell’ is a NEIPA and a twist on one of their core beers ‘Striding Edge’ (which I am yet to try). Apparently a slight issue arose … Continue reading Beer Review: Scafell – Northen Monk
A incredibly generous friend has meant that I’ve been able to sample one of the UK’s most talked about 2020 beers! BrewDog produced ‘Barnard Castle Eye Test’ after a certain high profile quarantine breach during the first Lockdown. The beer was so popular it sold out very quickly. They’ve done one more release recently during which my friend bought a case. This brilliantly political beer … Continue reading Beer Review: Barnard Castle Eye Test – BrewDog
A slightly momentous review today as it is my 100th! Since starting this little blog I have now reviewed over 100 craft beers which is quite incredible to think. Writing the reviews (as well as drinking the beers) has become a really fun and creative hobby. I haven’t really planned for anything special but to mark the occasion I thought I’d try one of the … Continue reading Beer Review: Shoop – Salt Beer Factory x Pomona Island
Lidl have a new range of beers back in right now! They’ve gone for an all Scottish line up again at incredibly good value, with an average price of just £1.79 a beer. I thought I’d kick off the new range reviewing a beer from my favourite brewery from the last release, Loch Lomond, and their new beer, appropriately named ‘Zoom Time’. It’s a rarely … Continue reading Beer Review: Zoom Time – Loch Lomond Brewery
It’s been a while since I’ve had a Thornbridge beer and I picked this up a while ago after James from @jamesproclaims (do check him out if you like witty posts about clickbait among other things!) affirmed my suspicions that it could be a good beer. However, I’m only drinking it now as I left it at my friend’s house in Portsmouth and only recently … Continue reading Beer Review: Jamestown – Thornbridge
I have a big backlog of beers at the moment and I’ve bumped this one up the review queue for two main reasons. Firstly, it’s another Lidl Beer Fest brew. Secondly, check out that glass! I am so lucky to be surrounded by some amazing friends, two of which sent me this incredible engraved stem glass under my Instagram handle. I couldn’t wait for the … Continue reading Beer Review: NEIPA (Galaxy/Amarillo) – Stewart Brewing
Apologies for the brief hiatus on a stunning holiday in Cornwall at the moment! The time has come however for the last Tiny Rebel review for the foreseeable future as I have finally drank the entire haul I bought well over a month ago. Ending it with another double bill this time as much like the previous one the main difference between the two beers … Continue reading Beer Review: Kiss Kiss // Bang Bang – Tiny Rebel Brewing Co.
This is officially the penultimate post of the Tiny Rebel batch of beers. I technically have two beers left to review but they will be done much in the way of the jam doughnut beers as a double review special. This beer is ‘Shake Down’. It is a Mango Vermont IPA, so those NEIPA flavours should be coming through. Brewed with additional mango it comes … Continue reading Beer Review: Shake Down – Tiny Rebel Brew Co.
Today’s beer is from the dwindling remains of my Tiny Rebel beers. I’ve still got a few to go but I’m on the look out now for a new bulk buy to supplement my supermarket pick-ups. So if anyone has any recommendations from their favourite craft breweries drop a comment below! Anyway, this is ‘Dutty’ (but hopefully in the good way) a Vermont session IPA. … Continue reading Beer Review: Dutty – Tiny Rebel Brew Co.
