Peanut Butter Prophecy is one of the last beers I bought from a local bottle shop before it closed down earlier this year. I had always wanted to try a beer from Spanish based brewers Basqueland and it just so happened to be a collaboration with well-known American brewers, Great Notion. As the name implies, it is a Peanut Butter based Imperial Pastry Stout with … Continue reading Beer Review: Peanut Butter Prophecy -Basqueland x Great Notion
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know about my guilty pleasure for trying ownbrand beers from the supermarkets. Particularly ALDI and Lidl who also create their own fake craft beer brand names like this one, The Hop Foundry from the former. Previous beers I have had from this range have genuinely been some of the worst brews I’ve ever had. … Continue reading Beer Review: Stout About It – The Hop Foundry (ALDI)
One of the best ever stouts I’ve had was from Bristol based Left Handed Giant so the bar has now been set fairly high for them when it comes to the dark side of the beer world. One of my lovely friends from work got me a couple of beers for Christmas, one of which was ‘Breaker, Breaker’ from the LHG. It’s a 7% Export … Continue reading Beer Review: Breaker, Breaker – Left Handed Giant
As winter draws in the indoor photography is definitely going to see a sharp increase! I’ll have exchange garden foliage in favour of potted plants for my background scenery. However, the beer remains the star of the show and Wilde Child is the brewery in question today. They are a new brewery to me and I’ve just seen a couple of the beers crop up … Continue reading Beer Review: Brownie Huntress – Wilde Child Brewing Co.
I’ve had this beer kicking around for ages and kept meaning to try it, but with a Imperial Stout I feel like you need to resign yourself to having nothing else on the rest of the day! Norse Star II is the second version of a collaborative brew (which I have tried) between British craft brewing stalwarts Northern Monk and Norway’s Lervig. From what I … Continue reading Beer Review: Norse Star II – Northern Monk x Lervig
Through work, I recently got the opportunity to go to Brew London, my first beer festival since Covid. Based in the Printworks in London, Brew London hosted a massive variety of different breweries from across the country and I had an absolutely cracking time. I only ended up buying one can of beer to takeaway, mainly because the lady behind the bar at Vocation is … Continue reading Beer Review: Imperial Kirsch – Vocation
Hammerton Brewery is a first time feature on the blog but not new for me personally. As a London based brewery I’ve had some of their core range on draft a few times, particularly their N1 pale ale. We’ve also had their flagship beer ‘Crunch’, a peanut butter stout, on draft at work before! This beer, ‘City of Cake’ is a Chocolate Fudge Cake Stout, … Continue reading Beer Review: City of Cake – Hammerton Brewery
Continuing my beer clear out extravaganza with a stout from another new brewery for me! Frisky Bear is based up North in Leeds, which I actually visited the other day. It’s been a little while since I’ve had a dark beer, mostly because almost all the ones I have are heavy hitters in the ABV department. ‘Under Promise, Over Deliver’ is substantially lighter at 4.5% … Continue reading Beer Review: Under Promise, Over Deliver – Frisky Bear Brewing Co.
A long time ago, back when I was first starting this blog, I reviewed the majority of Black Isle Brewery’s, readily available core range. Their specials are rather hard to find online and in bottle shops so it was only fair to pay them a visit while I was up in Scotland a couple weeks back. I picked up a whole host of brews that … Continue reading Beer Review: The Big Sleep – Black Isle Brewery
I’ve taken my newly discovered south coast brewery, Dancing Man, up North with me as well this week. One of the two beers I bought to takeaway when I was down in Southampton, ‘Big Bad Stout’ is exactly what it says on the tin. Rocking up at a hefty 6.8% ABV it’s just a classic stout based on a recipe from 1890! No adjuncts, no … Continue reading Beer Review: Big Bad Stout – Dancing Man Brewery
