This beer, gifted to me from a friend at work, is my first (non-lager) beer from Japan! Hitachino Nest Beer is a series brewed by Kiuchi Brewery who typically brew Japanese Sake and have been doing so since 1823. Hitachino is the name of the province where the brewery originates from. This particular beer I tried is the White Ale, so a take on the … Continue reading Beer Review: Hitachino Nest White Ale – Kiuchi Brewery
Padstow Brewing Comapny, based of course in Padstow, was another new brewery I thought I’d try while I was down in Cornwall last month! The reason I decided to go for this beer specifically, is because 10p of each can sold goes towards the National Lobster Hatchery based in Padstow. It’s a charity that helps conserve vunerbale lobster populations which provide vital income for many … Continue reading Beer Review: Lobster Tale – Padstow Brewing Co.
It was the wonderful month of October, so naturally Lidl have a couple of Oktoberfest themed beers out. If you’ve followed my blog for a little bit you’ll also know that I love an own-brand beer review so I couldn’t help but buy both. First up is the Wheat Beer. I was very curious to see how it was executed but being as though Lidl … Continue reading Beer Review: Wheat Beer – Lidl
I have been truly swamped by the pub I work at the moment which has left me less time to drink beer and more importantly less time to write about it! Thankfully, I am now on holiday and will be using some of my downtown productively into to cracking through my review backlog (and of course adding to it too). Dog Falls Brewing is based … Continue reading Beer Review: Chapeau Pierre! – Dog Falls Brewing
It’s my birthday today! And while I would love my body to be a temple I will not be celebrating my lock-down birthday with alcohol free beer. Today’s review is going to be AF but it’s from my more tame Sunday. It’s been a while since I’ve had a wheat beer and the last one I had was low alcohol. It was one of the … Continue reading Beer Review: Hefeweizen (Alcohol Free) – Rothaus
I’ve gone alcohol free today. Felt like I needed a break after a weekend of heavy drinking after finding out Christmas had been cancelled. I’m sure some can relate! Another Lidl own brand beer today as well, with the difference being it’s not marketed under their craft beer brand Hatherwood. It’s part of their imported German range contract brewed by Privatbrauerei Eichbaum. ‘Patronus’ is a … Continue reading Beer Review: Patronus (Alcohol Free) – Privatbrauerei Eichbaum (Lidl)
Another little takeaway beer from the folks at Tracks, one of my local railway arch bars. Almost all the reviews so far have focused on craft beer in the UK but I believe this will be the first beer from the continent, specifically Germany. Quite a popular brand, this is Rothaus, who predominantly produce wheat beers. For this review we’ve got ‘Weizenzäpfle’ at 5.4% ABV. … Continue reading Beer Review: Weizenzäpfle – Rothaus
Returning to Tiny Rebel once again today, but with a first for the blog. Passion Fruit Pool Party is the first wheat beer I have reviewed and not a style I typically have. My main encounters with wheat beer is in the form of the widely available Blue Moon, which I am partial to every now and then. As such I was quite excited to … Continue reading Beer Review: Passion Fruit Pool Party – Tiny Rebel Brewing Co.
