Through work I met with a sales manager for a brewery I hadn’t heard of before called By The Horns, based out in South West London. One of the beers they gave me was ‘Cuki’ a Cucumber and Kiwi Saison. I was instantly drawn to it, as saisons are a style I want to try more of and become more familiar with. it comes in … Continue reading Beer Review: Cuki – By The Horns Brewing 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.
I have sadly missed a couple of days of my October goal: to post everyday this month. An early start at work and a late finish did not leave me time to put out a review. That will not deter me however and despite missing one day I see no reason to not try an post on the rest. So take up for this transgression, … Continue reading Beer Review: Joker IPA // Double Joker – Williams Bros. Brewing Co
I’ve been trying quite a few lagers recently which is quite unlike me, as typically I only have lager in the form of a certain Danish pilsner. Maybe I’ve got the Oktoberfest bug which has resulted in tasting the more interesting side of arguably one of the less interesting beers styles. ‘Vienna Lager’ is a beer from Wild Craft Brewery and is brewed with the … Continue reading Beer Review: Vienna Lager – Wild Craft Brewing
Not three days into my challenge of posting everyday in October and I almost fail! Well not to be bested by my inability to commit, I’m posting a rather late review of one of the many Black Isle Brewery beers I bought while up in Scotland. The cleverly named ‘Rhode Runner’ is, of course, a New England Pale Ale and comes in at 5.3% ABV. … Continue reading Beer Review: Rhode Runner – Black Isle Brewery
The month of October, in the beer world, is best associated with the biggest beer festival in the world. Oktoberfest! To celebrate I’m setting myself the challenge to post a review everyday for the duration of the month. And to kick it off I am of course going for an Oktoberfest themed beer called ‘Oktoberwest’. Brewed by Westerham brewery in Kent it is a Marzen … Continue reading Beer Reviews: Oktoberwest – Westerham Brewery
When I first started out this blog, my friend Matty, told me about this brewery near where he lives in Dorset. Gyle 59 is the name of said brewery and what got me intrigued by them, is that they brew a stinging nettle beer! Sadly , that particular beer remains on my bucket list. Instead I picked up ‘Capitalist Hippie’ when I was last down … Continue reading Beer Review: Capitalist Hippie ~ Far Out! – Gyle 59
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
I popped into Asda recently, for the first time since University actually, to have a little nosey at what their craft beer range was and see if they’d been keeping up with the other supermarkets. They have a decent selection of beers from other breweries but also have a range brewed exclusively for them. The folks behind this range are Yorkshire based BAD Co (short … Continue reading Beer Review: West Coast Pale – BAD Co. (Asda)
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.
