I bought quite a few beers when I visited Cromarty Brewing Co. on Scotland’s Black Isle a couple months back. Combined with the mass of beers I already had and have subsequently added I recently enlisted the help of one of my best mates to get through some of the stock! Up first was ‘Not The Foggiest’ a session IPA from the folks at Cromarty. … Continue reading Beer Review: Not The Foggiest – Cromarty Brewing Co.
I’ve still got some of my Wylam birthday brews to try and I thought I’d go for their lightest ABV offering from the batch. ‘Crusaders of the Atom’ is a sesssion pale ale coming in at 3.8% ABV. I’m so used to having bigger, boozier beers at the moment that it’s nice to fall back on something lighter and see if the brewer can still … Continue reading Beer Review: Crusaders of the Atom – Wylam Brewery
Happy New Year folks! Thank you to everyone who has read a post of mine over the last year. It’s been incredibly fun to do and has helped get me through some of these lockdown woes. To ring in 2021 I’ve got a special first post of the year: A Tale of Three Tinnies! A few months back there was some social media banter going … Continue reading Beer Review: ALD IPA // Punk IPA // Anti Establishment – BrewDog & Aldi
Trying to clear the beer review backlog today in time for Christmas as I recently bought a lot of craft beer online while a tad tipsy. Like going to the supermarket when your hungry, it’s never a good combination! So we’ve got a review double bill today and our second is from Siren Craft Brew. I really like Siren and it’s been far too long … Continue reading Beer Review: Lumina – Siren Craft Brew
Today’s review is a beer from Lidl that isn’t part of their new range. It’s a staple in the shops I believe and after some digging I believe it is a contract brew from Eichbaum Brewery in Mannheim, Germany. This is the Session IPA from a series of beers called ‘Steam Brew’. A whole premise and backstory has been created for the six beers in … Continue reading Beer Review: Steam Brew (Session IPA) – Eichbaum
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
Today’s beer is one I’ve had kicking around for a while. This is Toast Ale’s Session IPA that can be picked up from Co-OP, Waitrose or Tesco. On the face of it, it seems like just another standard session IPA but it’s a beer brewed with a twist. Toast Ale beers are brewed with surplus fresh bread to help reduce wastage in the food production … Continue reading Beer Review: Session IPA – Toast Ale
I popped into M & S the other day because I had heard they had a fairly large craft beer range. And the rumours were true! I was out at the time so could only pick up one beer and decided it would not only be a new brewery but a little treat for my Dad as well. This is ‘Bandit’ from London based Gipsy … Continue reading Beer Review: Bandit – Gipsy Hill Brewing Company
Very last of the back log so need to get back to drinking some new beers soon! Thankfully I’ve got a couple days off work to get cracking with that task! So another short review today with a beer I had kicking about for quite a while. This is Fourpure’s core session IPA ‘Hemisphere’ coming in at 4.2% ABV. A fairly clear light gold colour … Continue reading Beer Review: Hemisphere – Fourpure Brewing Co.
Finally getting back to one of the Fourpure Globetrotter beers. Had these for a while now but I wanted to try and review some of those Lidl beers first. Another super interesting one this is ‘Lantern’ an Earl Grey Session IPA brewed with Earl Grey tea, at a light 3.7% ABV. The previous two were really good so expectations are being maintained high for this … Continue reading Beer Review: Lantern – Fourpure Brewing Co.
