The Twelve Beers Of Christmas 2016 (#12BeersofXmas)

12 Beers Of Xmas 2016

I know, Christmas is long forgotten. And good bloggers published their ’12 Beers Of Christmas’ post well before the decorations came down. Well, not me. I was too busy having fun and enjoying drinking the beers to write about them. At least I remembered to post them daily on Twitter and Instagram this year! As well as Untappd of course. Better late ...

Cantillon Zwanze Day 2016 @ North Bar, Leeds

Cantillon Zwanze Day 2016 @ North Bar Leeds

My love for Cantillon knows no bounds. Their Quintessence event in May remains one of my highlights of the year. Another huge occasion on the Cantillon calendar is Zwanze Day. An annual event where the legendary Belgian brewery releases a specially produced new beer in only a handful of venues around the world. I’d only ever tried 2012’s offering, a rhubarb lambic which was a recreation ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… OCTOBER 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

Stoptober was originally a campaign to encourage people to quit smoking during October. In recent years though – this one in particular – it seems to be trying to stop people drinking as well. I can’t say I was tempted. Instead I visited Indy Man Beer Fest (on three of its four days), tried 26 out of the 27 collaborations at BrewDog’s ‘CollabFest’, ...

Cantillon Quintessence 2016, Brussels

Cantillon Quintessence 2016

I’ve been to a lot of breweries over the last few years. Most are on big out of town industrial estates or previously disused arches under railways tracks. But not Cantillon. Their brewery is on a normal street, in a normal part of Brussels. Which is odd really, as the beer they brew is far from normal. Inside is a ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… MAY 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

I know I say this every month but never has it been truer. This post was almost impossible to write. May was just crazy for beer. I drank several hundred, many simply world class. The majority came from Cantillon’s legendary Quintessence event in Brussels. Where amongst other things I was drinking 20-year-old gueuze. And then the best four days of ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… NOVEMBER 2015

The Best Beer I Drank In...

After a ridiculous beer filled October I planned on taking it easy in November, expecting a quiet month before the Christmas madness began. But it didn’t quite turn out that way; with several visits to the likes of BrewDog, Port Street and Magic Rock Tap along with some stunning bottles, both at home and at a bottle share with a bunch ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… June 2015

The Best Beer I Drank In...

I know I promised not to review every beer I drink, and I stand by that. But I did want some sort of reference to the best of them. There’s Untappd of course but it’s not so easy to refer back to. So I decided to make a regular feature, cleverly named ‘The Best Beers I Drank In… <insert month>’. It’ll ...
