Beer Review: Tropical Sour – Vault City Brewing

Tesco recently had some new beers drop into their stores from some rather major UK breweries. There was a bit of a discussion on various craft beer forums about these breweries potentially dropping their high standards to enter the UK supermarkets. As such I thought I’d give them a go to see if they were any good. This beer is from Vault City, a Scottish … Continue reading Beer Review: Tropical Sour – Vault City Brewing

Campfire, Two Tribes Brewery

Today we return to one of my favourite aspects of the blog: Taproom Talk! Courtesy of work I got the opportunity to visit North London base Two Tribes’ very new taproom. Having only just opened when restriction began lifting on April 12th Campfire is situated in the Tileyard, North London in between Camden and Islington and surrounded by various music studios and offices. The taproom … Continue reading Campfire, Two Tribes Brewery

Beer Review: Souropod (Blood Orange, Apricot & Star Anise) – Staggeringly Good Brewery

It’s officially a week to go until my one year anniversary on the blog! Keep your eyes peeled as I am sure I will have something funky going on to mark the occasion. In the meantime we have another beer review. I recently picked up this Staggeringly Good beer from my local bottle shop/bodega Arch Rivals. It’s only my second beer from these folks and … Continue reading Beer Review: Souropod (Blood Orange, Apricot & Star Anise) – Staggeringly Good Brewery

Beer Review: Micki Pop – Northern Monk

My first Northern Monk beer in a decent while but more importantly it’s my first Northern Monk Patrons Project beer. The Patrons Project are collaborative brews but with individuals rather than other breweries. Typically, the collaborator is an artist who subsequently does the design for the can which is really cool I think. There are multiple beers in each series giving a variety of different … Continue reading Beer Review: Micki Pop – Northern Monk

Beer Review: I Know Karate, Voodoo Too – Black Lodge Brewery

I am full steam ahead when it comes to new breweries at the moment, I just keep going to buy beer and finding ones I’ve never heard of, which is fantastic. Black Lodge Brewery was founded in 2015 and is based out of Liverpool Baltic Triangle; the digital and creative Quarter of the city center. ‘I Know Karate, Voodoo Too’ (which appears to be a … Continue reading Beer Review: I Know Karate, Voodoo Too – Black Lodge Brewery

Beer Review: Cosmic Raspberry – BrewDog OverWorks

You may remember, in many posts gone by, my complaining about my local Morrisons not stocking their full craft beer range. Well the one I went to recently doesn’t stock them all either, but it did have a fair few more including this little number from BrewDog’s OverWorks division. The OverWorks side of their company has a more experimental focus when it comes to beers, … Continue reading Beer Review: Cosmic Raspberry – BrewDog OverWorks

Beer Review: The Good Things To Come – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

The lovely summer weather has been blessing us recently and my local brewery Pretty Decent has been pumping out some new beers to enjoy in the sun! This beer is very interesting in that it is the first Pretty Decent beer I’ve seen given an actual name: ‘The Good Things To Come’. It’s the first year the brewery has taken part in the International Women’s … Continue reading Beer Review: The Good Things To Come – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Beer Review: Bakewell Tart – UnBarred Brewery

It’s been a little while since I’ve had an UnBarred beer. The Brighton based outfit have a penchant for incredibly funky sounding beer flavours. Today’s beer is no different. ‘Bakewell Tart’ aims, unsurprisingly, to be a Raspberry Sour with Almond and Vanilla. I love Bakewell Tarts and have been seriously craving sours recently so I was very excited when I saw this in my local … Continue reading Beer Review: Bakewell Tart – UnBarred Brewery

Beer Review: Pizzazz – Brass Castle

My old man recently did a (not so) little purchase from what I consider the most experimental gluten free brewery going. More importantly I have been permitted to occasionally taste and try some of these crazy concoctions or, in the case of today’s beer, he has treated me to the whole thing! This is Brass Castle’s ‘Pizzazz’ a sun-dried tomato and sweet basil gose. Yes … Continue reading Beer Review: Pizzazz – Brass Castle

Beer Review: New Romantic (Mandarin) – Two Tribes

Today’s beer comes from a new brewery for me. Two Tribes is a North London based brewery with a passion for music and the arts. New Romantic is actually a series of beers which appears to revolve around the Berliner Weisse sour beer style with this brew focusing on the mandarin orange. Since heading into the colder months it’s been a long time since I’ve … Continue reading Beer Review: New Romantic (Mandarin) – Two Tribes
