I’ve always wanted to start up a food blog but never really found the time. I love eating more or less anything so it made perfect sense to share that love with other people and give myself a new hobby. Unfortunately with the current situation this is probably the wrong time to start up a food blog. Thankfully I have another passion: beer! So I’ve … Continue reading Welcome to My Beer Blog
Returning today with a beer from Abingdon on Thames based brewers Loose Cannon. This is another one of the beers my Mum got me thanks to her expiring air-miles. It’s a Blonde beer, although it doesn’t have that information on the label at all, and rocks up at a sessionable 4.2% ABV. It’s been a little while since I last had a proper real ale. … Continue reading Beer Review: Bombshell – Loose Cannon Brewery
Boris has just announced that hugs are back on the menu so naturally this beer by New Zealand brewers Yeastie Boys seemed the most appropriate. ‘Cuddle Party’ is described as a Nourishing Ale, which isn’t exactly a specific style of beer but does conjure a certain mental image. Brewed originally as a warming beer to help get through the last stretches of lockdown it comes … Continue reading Beer Review: Cuddle Party – Yeastie Boys
Your eyes do not deceive you, this is not a beer review but a Taproom Talk entry on my blog! It has been far too many months since we’ve been able to have a drink at a taproom and since I’ve been stuck at the pub most days, since the country has reopened slightly, I’ve only recently made it out to have a drink! A … Continue reading Mother Kelly’s (Stratford)
Today’s beer is a rather wacky sounding one from the folks over at London based brewery Exale. ‘Krankie’, named after the famous Scottish comedy act, is of course an Iron Brew flavoured sour beer. For those that have never heard of Irn-Bru it is the iconic drink from Scotland (just after whisky of course)! It’s a fizzy drink that has an almost indescribable flavour but … Continue reading Beer Review: Krankie – Exale Brewing
Since pubs have reopened I’ve only just managed to make it down to my awesome local brewery Pretty Decent. They’ve been knocking out the beers at their usual weekly rate so I had a few to catch up on. This brew saw them return to their Single Hop Series with the featured hop being the ever reliable Mosaic. This beer actually sold out in record … Continue reading Beer Review: Mosaic IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
My first Northern Monk beer in a decent while but more importantly it’s my first Northern Monk Patrons Project beer. The Patrons Project are collaborative brews but with individuals rather than other breweries. Typically, the collaborator is an artist who subsequently does the design for the can which is really cool I think. There are multiple beers in each series giving a variety of different … Continue reading Beer Review: Micki Pop – Northern Monk
It’s Wednesday everybody and as such I’ve gone for an appropriately named beer. ‘Big Wednesday’ is an IPA from Harbour Brewing who are another new brewery for me! They are based out of Bodmin in Cornwall. Those who know me, know that simply being based in Cornwall increases the chance that I will love the beer! It comes in at 5.6% ABV and I picked … Continue reading Beer Review: Big Wednesday – Harbour Brewing Co.
Work has been non-stop at the moment. Unsurprisingly, it seems everyone is very keen to get into a pub garden with friends and have a pint. So as it stands I’ve been stealing away little moments to try a beer and review it. This beer was gifted to me as a late birthday present by my cracking friend Ryan! Fierce Beer is a brewery based … Continue reading Beer Review: Fierce Rhubarb – Fierce Beer
It’s been far too long since I last had a beer from the trusty folks over at Siren Craft Brew. They had their eight anniversary not too long ago and while I would’ve have loved to have taken part I already own far too much beer to justify buying more. Instead I’ve gone for ‘Midnight Stack’ a Maple Pancake Milk Stout that has been Nitro … Continue reading Beer Review: Midnight Stack – Siren Craft Brew
I am full steam ahead when it comes to new breweries at the moment, I just keep going to buy beer and finding ones I’ve never heard of, which is fantastic. Black Lodge Brewery was founded in 2015 and is based out of Liverpool Baltic Triangle; the digital and creative Quarter of the city center. ‘I Know Karate, Voodoo Too’ (which appears to be a … Continue reading Beer Review: I Know Karate, Voodoo Too – Black Lodge Brewery
