One of my lovely friends and colleagues at work got me some beer for Christmas, one of which included my favourite South West brewery, the Falmouth based Verdant! ‘The Future is Uncertain’ is an 8% DIPA featuring a triple drop of New Zealand’s finest hops; Motueka, Nelson Sauvin and (a new one for me) Waimea.

This is it! I’ve finally got around to picking up a Verdant Brewing Company beer. What is crazy is that despite going to university in Falmouth and Penryn, Cornwall (where these guys are based) I’ve never tried one of their beers!
