Beer Review: Krankie – Exale Brewing

Today’s beer is a rather wacky sounding one from the folks over at London based brewery Exale. ‘Krankie’, named after the famous Scottish comedy act, is of course an Iron Brew flavoured sour beer. For those that have never heard of Irn-Bru it is the iconic drink from Scotland (just after whisky of course)! It’s a fizzy drink that has an almost indescribable flavour but … Continue reading Beer Review: Krankie – Exale Brewing

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

Beer Review: Souropod (Mango. Raspberry & Vanilla) – Staggeringly Good Brewery

Today’s review is going to be an interesting one. Triple fruited sour beers are becoming popular at the moment and this will be my first! Portsmouth based Staggeringly Good Brewery has a series called ‘Souropod’ showcasing a variety of their sours. This beer is their Imperial Triple Fruited Gose style sour featuring raspberry and mango as the fruits. I’ve seen there are often arguments that … Continue reading Beer Review: Souropod (Mango. Raspberry & Vanilla) – Staggeringly Good Brewery

Beer Review: Greyhounds Don’t Like Jazz – Wylam Brewery

A new brewery for today’s review on recommendation from one of my local delis/bottle shops: Arch Rivals. Wylam Brewery is actually based out of Palace of Arts in Exhibition Park, Newcastle. I’m a bit of a fan of weird beer names and this one might take the title for me so far. ‘Greyhounds Don’t Like Jazz’ is Sour IPA at 7.1% ABV that is apparently … Continue reading Beer Review: Greyhounds Don’t Like Jazz – Wylam Brewery
