It's ok then..
Vocation brewery pride & joy APA vegan. 5.3%. Reminds of some ales I had in North America.
You can still get 8 cans for £9 in Tesco which is a fab price for such a good beer
Not bad for a macro beer.
Totes yumtus, even?
Yellow Belly Sundae is lush.
Had one of the current Yellow Bellies on launch day and for a beer that blew me away a couple of years ago it seemed pretty ordinary now.
This beauty is Cloudwater - "To Me"
Dark wine barrel aged sour with chuckleberries (there's another beer called "To You")
And those clever people at Pomona Brewery have released some sharers of barrel aged impy stout; a marsala wine one and two whisky ones.
At a bottle share we had the wine one but it was the last bottle of the evening and the best. It was ace.
"If I Only Had The Guts"
Pomona Gaz was in the boozer last night and told us to look out for the release of a white wine barrel aged saison anytime soon.
Northern Monk (plus Wylam, Verdant, Deya et al) Hop City DDH IPA-take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the hops are pretty Totes yumtus, also on the Imp Stout front, Tempest Old Fashioned reminded me of the power of the Dark Side. Another cracker from Tempest!
We had a keg of Hop City the other week; it's very good.
One for the "nice but disappointing" section.
Nice enough, just not very Jaffa Cakey.
A first mis-fire from Neonrapter.
It's a good one, isn't it!
I've moved so I'm no longer a near neighbour of the Taproom SE8. However, on the good news front, there's a local pub that sells a good range of craft beers and even has its own Cellar Boys micro-brewery downstairs. This beer is not quite as local, coming from The Kernel, which must be over a mile away. It's a pale, pleasantly grapefruity, little number.
Whitstable Bay in the Tom Cribb, Leicester Square. 5.30pm, three pints in. Could be messy
Little Creatures pale just 50 yards from home. It's an Aussie beer. Nicely done.
