When I first started out this blog, my friend Matty, told me about this brewery near where he lives in Dorset. Gyle 59 is the name of said brewery and what got me intrigued by them, is that they brew a stinging nettle beer! Sadly , that particular beer remains on my bucket list. Instead I picked up ‘Capitalist Hippie’ when I was last down … Continue reading Beer Review: Capitalist Hippie ~ Far Out! – Gyle 59
It’s far too long since I’ve reviewed a beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent! It’s not for lack of buying but more a case of still having way too many beers to get through. It’s also my first review since the can rebrand, which has allowed their artist to really go wild with the can wraps. ‘I Can’t Dance Like That’ is a 6% … Continue reading Beer Review: I Can’t Dance Like That – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
My penultimate review from the beers I tried up in Scotland. This one is from Dundee based 71 Brewing from who I’ve tried a few beers previously. ‘Luminous Lights’ is a Limited Edition beer that I picked up from Lidl and it’s a 5.2% New England IPA. I’ve previously tasted, but not reviewed, 71 Brewing’s ‘Luminous Nights’ which was a boozy DIPA. It wasn’t too … Continue reading Beer Review: Luminous Lights – 71 Brewing Co.
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
