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 Beers I Drank In… NOVEMBER 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

You can tell it’s nearly winter as you read down this list. Nine of the 13 beers I’ve selected are dark, many big winter warmers. I don’t only drink dark beers in winter, of course, and there are some amazing hoppy and sour beers on the list too. But there’s just something about a dark malty beer whilst sat in front of a ...

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’, ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… SEPTEMBER 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

Summer may be over now but it definitely wasn’t in September. Even in Scotland! Last months best beers mostly came from visits to Leeds Beer Festival, the 2016 Rainbow Project launch at Magic Rock Tap and a week in Scotland (Edinburgh and Aberdeen). All three trips featured amazing super sunny weather to match the beers. Almanac Beer Company – Farmer’s Reserve Citrus ...

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 ...

Beer Geek Supper Club With The Drunken Butcher

Beer Geek Supper Club with The Drunken Butcher

I like to eat out, a lot. Usually, in restaurants but a few years ago I started attending supper clubs too. I love them because most are BYOB (bring your own booze). People generally go with a bottle of wine or two but I like to take a variety of beers to pair with each course. Some of the best supper clubs in Manchester are undoubtedly ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… MARCH 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

Another month, another struggle to reduce 100’s of quality beers down to a concise list. Next month promises to be an even bigger challenge with my birthday weekend, Magic Rock’s UnHuman Cannonball launch, BrewDog’s annual AGM and a boozy trip to London on the cards. But that’s for next time, here are the best beers I drank in March. Buxton ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… FEBRUARY 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

I hosted a supper club in February where I matched beers to a seven-course tasting menu. Most of the beers were pretty special (click here to see them all) and could’ve easily dominated this list. But as I’m going to be writing the event up separately I decided not to include most of them here. There were a couple I ...

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… 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. ...

Omnipollo Takeover @ Buxton Brewery Tap House

Omnipollo Takeover at Buxton Brewery Tap House

I try not to drink too heavily during the week; it does nothing for my productivity the next day. But when I heard about Swedish brewery Omnipollo taking over Buxton Brewery’s Tap House for the day I just had to be there, despite the fact it was a Thursday. I don’t have a single favourite brewery but Omnipollo are always around my top 5 ...

The Best Beers I Drank In… AUGUST 2015

The Best Beer I Drank In...

It’s not been easy coming up with a shortlist for this regular ‘best beers’ post in previous months but this time has been particularly difficult. With another trip to Magic Rock Tap and the fabulous Grove pub in Huddersfield as well as a takeover by Swedish brewery Omnipollo at the equally excellent Buxton Tap House and finding an amazing craft beer bar whilst ...

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 ...
