Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have an expanding knowledge of a variety of different beers and whiskies, or have you ever thought how one day you could become a Cask Connoisseur just like me
That’s nearly another week over and done with, it’s honestly been a super busy one for me, but it truly feels absolutely fantastic to being back at work and doing the job I love. How has your week bee
Saturday night, I feel the air is getting hot…
Before I crack on with this post, yes I will admit, it’s Sunday, I know, but the fact is I actually sampled this beer last night and OMG it was absolut
After taking a two-week break just to focus on two beers that were part of my own stash: Spitfire Kentish Ale and Dark Drake! I am now happy to announce that I am returning to my Brews Of The World st
This week has been so amazing, I am actually really happy! It is all thanks to a giveaway I took part in a couple of weeks ago and I was selected as the winner. Firstly, I personally have to send a ma
A very happy Sunday to you all, I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend and celebrating Mother’s Day as best as you can for the second consecutive year. I actually remember quite well from last year’s Mother’s Day (which was later on in March), my workplace was meant to be full of families celebrating Mother’s Day whilst feasting into a three-course meal.
Sadly though, the restaurant was empty, pubs were ordered to close and the national lockdown was starting to take effect for the next four months, it was a horrible atmosphere walking in on an empty building, not being able to see all the fantastic customers enjoying our food and having a tremendous time.
Chapter 2, is what I am going to call it! Over the past month and a half, I have been focusing many of my beer reviews on local treats from my hometown (Burton Upon Trent) and the surrounding area! Well, now I have made the decision to finish with my local area and start to sample some new beers from a variety of different towns and cities across the UK!
At the end of the day, in my mind, I think it’s completely right to try new beers from different breweries and personally some of these breweries either I or you would have never heard.
Well would you believe it, the weekend is here once again! That’s another week done and dusted and certainly another week where we can say we are moving ever closer to coming out of this pandemic.
As I stated in my previous post, I am now ending the first part of my journey of finding some of the most amazing beers from my hometown Burton Upon Trent, the brewing capital, I have now realised its now time to move onto new places!
Yes, I’m going to admit, I’ve decided to focus on two more beers from my hometown, Burton Upon Trent and you’re probably wondering, why?, my answer is simple, I haven’t actually reviewed any beers from this microbrewery based in the town, so I decided now was the time!
To be fair, if it wasn’t for Brews Of The World, I wouldn’t have had the chance to try these two beers from such an awesome microbrewery that has loads of history.
Sour beers, you are probably thinking (Yuck), why the hell would you want to drink a beer that tastes sour. In general, if you went into a bar and purchased a pint of cask ale, then you started drinking it and it tasted sour, more than likely you’ll reappear back up to the bar and say ‘the beers off’.
The fact is, sour beers are never found in Cask Ales, but on the other hand, many craft beers are produced in a sour way, the next question you are probably wondering is why. Well, in the history section you will find out!
