BrewDog – AGM 2017, Aberdeen #PunkAGM2017

BrewDog AGM2017

Another year, another BrewDog AGM. This write up will be slightly less detailed than usual. Initially, I was going to pretend it’s because I’ve covered the previous two AGMs in depth here and here and they are fairly similar. This is true. But the real reason is that I seem to have slipped out of good blogger mode recently. I ...

The Best Beer I Drank In...

After taking a break in December and January this regular series is back for a new year – albeit a couple of months late. March’s selection will follow shortly like a London bus. And it won’t be too long before April’s makes an appearance too! But for now here are the best beers I drank in February 2017… Cloudwater Brew Co. – ...

BrewDog Advent Calendar 2016 [1/3]

BrewDog Advent Calendar

Remember how last year I couldn’t choose between Mikkeller and To Øl advent calendars? So I ended up with both? Well, it happened again. In fact, this year I was even more undecided. There were five that I wanted. Yes, five! Including both of the above. In the In the end I managed to talk myself out of the Mikkeller ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… JULY 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

Browsing this months shortlist you’d think I didn’t go out much in July. That wasn’t the case though. There were big trips to Liverpool and London as well as plenty of nights in Manchester. It just so happens that I drank some amazing beers at home and at a bottle share with friends. Omnipollo – Bianca Raspberry Lassi Gose (3.5% ...

Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2016 | CBC2016

Copenhagen Beer Celebration | CBC2016

Imagine paying £200 for a ticket to a beer festival and not wanting to go. Okay, I’m exaggerating slightly. But I did have to force myself to get out of bed for the first session of this years Copenhagen Beer Celebration. To be honest, I was never massively looking forward to the morning sessions. As much as I love beer, usually ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… APRIL 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

Partly because I had so many beers to sort through. April was a particularly hectic month and involved a lot of amazing beer. My birthday weekend, Magic Rock’s Un-Human Cannonball launch event and trips to London and Aberdeen for BrewDog’s AGM. But also because I’ve been busy so drinking even more beer in May. First at Cantillon in Belgium and then CBC in Copenhagen, but more ...

BrewDog – AGM 2016, Aberdeen #PunkAGM2016

BrewDog - PunkAGM 2016

It doesn’t feel like a year since the last BrewDog AGM, that’s because it wasn’t. I did have to check, though, just in case I’d been having too much fun over the past 12 months. Last year’s ‘meeting’ was held in June while this time it was brought forward to April, presumably to gain maximum exposure before their share offering ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… JANUARY 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

I decided to take a short break from blogging last month so didn’t add to this ongoing series. Most of the ‘Best Beers I Drank In DECEMBER 2015‘ were covered in these three posts though: Mikkeller Julepakkekalender 2015 (Advent Calendar), To Øl – To Ølekalender 2015 (Advent Calendar), The Twelve Beers Of Christmas (#12BeersofXmas). I haven’t gone in for any ...

The Twelve Beers Of Christmas 2015 (#12BeersofXmas)

12 Beers Of Xmas

For my first Christmas as a beer blogger,q I wanted to showcase some of the special beers that I’d saved for the festive period. After spending ages thinking about how to go about it, I realised that just like when I found out that ‘Golden Pints’ already exist, there’s also an established format in the beer blogging community. ‘Twelve Beers ...

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… OCTOBER 2015

The Best Beer I Drank In...

I’ve not counted but I almost certainly drank more beers in October 2015 than any other month of my life. Mainly because it was festival season; the month started with three days at Indy Man Beer Con and ended with two days at Salford Independent Beer Festival. There was also Bolton beer festival in between along with BrewDog’s CollabFest, and somehow lots ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… SEPTEMBER 2015

The Best Beer I Drank In...

It was a particular challenge not to let this list be dominated by two fantastic events I attended in September: Leeds International Beer Festival and The Rainbow Project Northern Launch at Magic Rock Tap. They were both so good but I drank plenty of other great beer too, so I’ve limited them to just a few places each on this list. ...

BrewDog – Punk AGM 2015, Aberdeen

BrewDog Punk AGM 2015

* Read about the 2016 BrewDog AGM here. * Q: What do you get if you cross a beer festival with a street food event and a rock/pop concert? A: BrewDog’s annual Punk AGM.  Okay, there was about 45 minutes of an actual business presentation too, but in typical BrewDog style they’ve turned what for most companies is a boring corporate event ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… JULY 2015

The Best Beer I Drank In...

Following on from last months inaugural ‘The Best Beers I Drank In… JUNE 2015‘ here’s the next in the ongoing series. July was another great month with trips to Huddersfield to the new Magic Rock Tap and Leeds, including new BrewDog venture ShuffleDog and my second visit to Northern Monk Refectory. I also got through a lot of fantastic bottles ...

BrewDog Brewery Tour & DogTap, Ellon, Aberdeen

BrewDog Brewery Tour & DogTap, Ellon

It’s no secret that I’m a pretty big BrewDog fan, they were the first brewery to make me take notice of proper beer so I’ll always have a soft spot for them. Unlike many of their fans, I don’t think they’re the be all and end all of beer. But they do brew some very interesting and good quality beers. Not just the ...
