The Best Beers I Drank In… FEBRUARY 2017

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. – ...

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 ...

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… AUGUST 2016

The Best Beer I Drank In...

I don’t know if I was tired for the whole of August, but I seem to have drank a lot of coffee beers. And five of them have made this list of best beers I drank last month. They’re all very different though, you’d never even guess one of them tasted of coffee by looking at it. There’s a couple of choices that ...

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… 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… 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 ...

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 ...

Mikkeller Julepakkekalender 2015 (Advent Calendar)

Mikkeller Advent Calendar 2015

I decided I wanted a ‘beer advent calendar’ this year. But after being frustrated at the lack of quality in the UK options (a definite gap in the market), I looked further afield. As soon as I saw Mikkeller were doing one, a ‘Julepakkekalender’, I had to get it. It arrived in plenty of time but I was a little disappointed with ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...
