Beer Review: Oui Chef! – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

My local brewery, Pretty Decent, have got an amazing sounding release schedule for the next couple of weeks which kicked off with this beer I’m reviewing today. ‘Oui Chef!’ is an Oat Cream IPA that I was told is just shy of the ABV threshold to make it a double. It’s got added oats and and lactose to aim for that creamy, soft body that … Continue reading Beer Review: Oui Chef! – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Beer Review: I Can’t Dance Like That – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

It’s far too long since I’ve reviewed a beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent! It’s not for lack of buying but more a case of still having way too many beers to get through. It’s also my first review since the can rebrand, which has allowed their artist to really go wild with the can wraps. ‘I Can’t Dance Like That’ is a 6% … Continue reading Beer Review: I Can’t Dance Like That – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Balintore Inn – Balintore, Tain, Scotland

It’s been a long old while since I last made an entry into the Pub Spotlight section of my blog. I believe pubs are such an important part of communities and each one is so different, I’ve simply been at work so much I’ve not had a chance to visit quite as many as I’d like. However, while I was up in Scotland a couple … Continue reading Balintore Inn – Balintore, Tain, Scotland

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.

A beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent Beer Co! They’ve started a new winter double IPA series and this is number 2. ‘Southern DIPA’ was apparently brewed on the shortest day of the year and of course comes in at a hefty 7.7% ABV. The last DIPA was absolutely gorgeous so I’ve been looking forward to the next edition in this series eagerly. Visually … Continue reading Beer Review: Southern DIPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Pub Spotlight: Farr’s School of Dancing – Dalston, London

You might be surprised this series has another entry on my blog considering the recent Tier 4 clamp down in London. However, despite my hectic work schedule prior to that event, I managed to get out and visit one of Dalston’s pub offerings and enjoy a couple of pints (and a substantial meal of course). In a prime location opposite Dalston Junction Overground station it … Continue reading Pub Spotlight: Farr’s School of Dancing – Dalston, London
