Cloudwater Brew Co – IPA Simcoe Ekuanot

IPA • 6.0 % ABV • Manchester, England My next beer comes from another heavy weight in the brewing industry and no stranger to the IPA market with a huge, seasonal variety of special and delicious beers. Cloudwater have done it well for so long, producing ranges of beers that sell out pretty damned quickly. Particularly…

Maple Stout • 7.5 % ABV • Ellen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland My Hoppilot.com reviews are finally back and with the recent delivery of two fairly packed Brewdog cases, it would seem appropriate to choose one of their “Wild Cards” from the case that comes hot on the heels of Pump Action Poet, Nine to Five Wizard and…

Magic Rock / J. Wakefield / Slim Pickens – Cherry Cola Vice

Berliner Weisse • 5.5 % ABV • Huddersfield, England Following in the vein of Pina Mojito Vice, Cherry Cola Vice takes another refreshing, Summer beverage favourite and turns it on its head.

Tiny Rebel – Sugar Rush

Imperial Stout • 8.0 % ABV • Rogerstone, Newport, Wales Years of tasting beers, visiting festivals, judging homebrew attempts and generally getting my name out there in the beery world has finally paid off.

Brouwerij Rodenbach – Rodenbach Caractère Rouge 2013

Sour • 7.0 % ABV • Roeselare, Belgium Would you believe it? It’s been a long time coming, but we have finally moved into our new pad in Barry. Although I don’t yet have an official workspace setup for laptap as yet, I can begin prepping my space for photo shoots. More on this coming real…
