Beer Review: Mangolicious – Laine Brew Co.

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.

Beer Review: TR-HOP-ICAL – Vocation

Hebden Bridge based Vocation Brewery have fast become a supermarket staple with a good chunk of their core range and even a selection of specials available on the shelves. One of those specials is ‘TR-HOP-ICAL’, a double dry-hopped pale at 5.7% ABV. It’s been brewed with a brand new, and yet to be named, hop HBC 630 which apparently should be bringing hints of cherry … Continue reading Beer Review: TR-HOP-ICAL – Vocation

Beer Review: People, Money, Space Time – Verdant Brewing Co.

I recently went on holiday to beautiful Cornwall, and more specifically, my old university stomping ground of Falmouth. Falmouth, has recently got a lot more craft beer heavy with a couple of new bottle shops opening up. It is also the home of the wonderful Verdant Brewing Company so of course I had to grab a can or four of their new releases and old … Continue reading Beer Review: People, Money, Space Time – Verdant Brewing Co.

Beer Review: Rhode Runner – Black Isle Brewery

Not three days into my challenge of posting everyday in October and I almost fail! Well not to be bested by my inability to commit, I’m posting a rather late review of one of the many Black Isle Brewery beers I bought while up in Scotland. The cleverly named ‘Rhode Runner’ is, of course, a New England Pale Ale and comes in at 5.3% ABV. … Continue reading Beer Review: Rhode Runner – Black Isle Brewery

Beer Review: West Coast Pale – BAD Co. (Asda)

I popped into Asda recently, for the first time since University actually, to have a little nosey at what their craft beer range was and see if they’d been keeping up with the other supermarkets. They have a decent selection of beers from other breweries but also have a range brewed exclusively for them. The folks behind this range are Yorkshire based BAD Co (short … Continue reading Beer Review: West Coast Pale – BAD Co. (Asda)

Beer Review: Colloidoscope – Dog Falls Brewing

While visiting Cromarty Brewery we’ve grabbed lunch in a little cafe/pizza spot in the town itself that also doubled up as a gift shop. Some of these gifts available in Sutor Creek Cafe happened to be local beers. I had never heard of Dog Falls Brewing, who are based on the outskirts of Inverness, and decided to grab a few of their cans. ‘Colloidoscope’ seemed … Continue reading Beer Review: Colloidoscope – Dog Falls Brewing

Beer Review: Intuition – Wold Top Brewery

After a very long and stressful weekend at work I’ve actually not drunk very much alcohol at all! And wanting to keep posting no/low alcohol beers on a Monday I gave another one a try. My Dad is a big fan of Wold Top Brewery, for their gluten free selection, and bought me their low alcohol pale ale to try. ‘Intuition’ is under 0.5% ABV … Continue reading Beer Review: Intuition – Wold Top Brewery

Beer Review: Mangoes on with Faith – Northern Monk

Over the last couple months, Northern Monk have released several new beers into both Morrisons and Tesco. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of their beers so naturally I’ve picked them all up. Today’s beer is called ‘Mangoes on with Faith’ and it is a mango pale ale. It’s a twist on the recipe of their core range beer ‘Faith’ which I reviewed many … Continue reading Beer Review: Mangoes on with Faith – Northern Monk

Beer Review: Sabro Mosaic & Idaho-7 Pale Ale – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

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.

Beer Review: Bubble Trouble – Boss Brewing

I’ve been patiently awaiting the return of Lidl’s craft beer festival, and it is finally back in action this week. The lineup this time around sees the return of some amazing value brews such as Loch Lomond’s Zoom Time while also bringing in some new faces. One of the latest arrivals is this odd sounding beer from Wales based Boss Brewing. ‘Bubble Trouble’ is a … Continue reading Beer Review: Bubble Trouble – Boss Brewing
