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.
The kings of celebrity name puns, Brew York, have a few of their classic, core range beers dotted around the supermarkets these days. I haven’t had the chance to try many of their beers, but the ones I’ve had, have been delicious. ‘Goose Willis’ is a gooseberry sour that was originally brewed with BrewDog in York as part of their annual Collabfest back in 2017. … Continue reading Beer Review: Goose Willis – Brew York
The other day my Dad said he saw a Lemon Cheesecake Sour IPA in Morrisons and asked if I wanted it. I instantly said yes because the only brewery it could have been from was Siren. Now, the reason I was so excited for it was because it was the first sour beer I ever tried. Peter, a sales manager who works for Siren, came … Continue reading Beer Review: Castillian Lemon & Honey Cheesecake – Siren Craft Brew
Lidl have been really keeping the craft beers stocked up with back to back drops of new beers in the last couple of months. As always Scottish brewers 71 Brewing Co are frequent appearance makers on the supermarket shelves. ‘Pink Lemon Loca’ is perhaps one the more interesting sounding beers from 71 Brewing to make their way into Lidl. It’s a 4.5% ABV Lemon and … Continue reading Beer Review: Pink Lemon Loca – 71 Brewing Co.
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
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.
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.
The supermarket beers that Northern Monk put out are of a consistently high quality so I was very much looking forward to giving this boozy collaboration a go. ‘Eternal Haze’ is a Double dry-hopped Double IPA at 8% ABV and is a twist on Northern Monk’s core range beer ‘Eternal’, which is a, substantially lighter, session IPA. I actually had the original on draft when … Continue reading Beer Review: Eternal Haze – Northern Monk x Stigbergets
Shepherd Neame brewery was established in 1698 which purportedly makes them Britain’s oldest brewer, a rather incredible feat if you ask me. They have a variety of different beer lines now including the Spitfire range and the Whitstable Bay series, however, this IPA is from the their classic collection of beers. I picked it up in Lidl, who currently have a couple Shepherd Neame brews, … Continue reading Beer Review: India Pale Ale (Classic Collection) – Shepherd Neame
I’m desperately trying to get through my beers stock at the moment as I have far too many. The good thing about this problem is I’m getting to try lots of beer from breweries new to me, including this one. Love Lane are based in the heart of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle and I picked up their beer, ‘Baltic Berliner’, in Lidl not too long ago. … Continue reading Beer Review: Baltic Berliner – Love Lane Brewery
