Wiper and True – Plum Pudding – A beer that could be a dessert in itself. This reindeer is deep, dark and filled with sweetness. Dried fruits and cinnamon were added resulting in a caramelised sugar and stone fruit flavour, slightly toasted finish and a warming smile
Siren – The Tickle Monster – A Triple IPA! This beer was also spun on Cedar wood, allowing the heavy hop aromas to shin. A rich and sweet tropical IPA with barely any notice of the alcohol.
Siren – Ten Finger Discount – it’s rare that beers are ever spun with wood, so to compliment The Tickle we wanted to show you the lower version as well. Spun on the same wood but with Citra, deep spicy wood characters and dank fruits make this a bit more tropical but much more juicy.
To Ol – Garden of Eden - There was a time when everyone was walking around naked, in harmony with nature and all its animals. People were just sipping IPAs and on several biblical records, Adam and Eve were putting fruits in their IPA to compliment the fruity mosaic hops. Apricot, Guaae, Mango, Passionfruit and Papaya made for a great IPA. Boasting with fruit flavours, this makes an intense IPA, boasting more fruit aromas that you never will come across in any other beer. Cheers!
Evil Twin – Tropical Super Itchy – A passionfruit Berliner Weisse that packs a punch. This was probably the biggest surprise beer I’ve had all year. Big passionfruit sherbet in a can. Encompasses everything I love about session sours and takes me swiftly back to summer.
Almasty – IPA – Almasty have been a corner stone of innovation in the UK brewing scene. IPA’s are always great, but through tweaks and experimentation this one takes the biscuit. Perfectly balanced and still pushes the boundaries.
Beerbliotek – Whoop Ass - Ever feel like life is getting you down? Long, hard days at work, with no thanks from the man?! Well, maybe it’s time to open a can of Whoop Ass!! Another staple refreshing sour, this time from Gothenberg. Dry hopped to give it more bite and rounded off with Orange peel. Perfect for when you are cooking up Christmas dinner and want fun hydration.
Mikkeller – American Dream – One of the greatest pilsners on the market. Mikkeller have stormed the world but still know how to brew classic styles to perfection. A clean and crisp pils with slight hoppy notes. A big can for the lager drinker around who doesn’t feel so adventurous.
Two Roads – Lil’ Heaven - A session IPA in a can. Made with four exotic hops - Azacca, Calypso, Mosaic and Equinox. Taste is of tropical fruits, specifically passion fruit, grapefruit and apricots. Finishes with just enough toasted malt character to balance.
Brooklyn Brewery - Lager - Brooklyn Lager, the Brewery's flagship label, is New York's "hometown" beer, brewed to a pre-Prohibition recipe that dates back to the days when Brooklyn was the brewing capital of the East Coast. Brooklyn Lager has won numerous awards. Wrote Michael Jackson in the Simon & Schuster Pocket Guide to Beer: "The dry-hopped, fresh, flowery, firm, flavourful, Brooklyn Lager started well, in 1988, and has gained in character since."
Basqueland / Lervig – No’rway Jose – A collab between north and south Europe. This phenomenal IPA has crazy amounts going on. Whilst hitting 7.2% it remains a mystery how such a fulfilling beer can mask it all and stay so balance. Incredibly drinkable.
North End – Salt and Wood Oud Bruin - Salt and Wood series. In the East of Flanders there exists a tradition of making brown ales aged in stainless steel tanks until they take on a level of refreshing acidity and a delicious subtle fruitiness. Sometimes they then combine these sour brown ales with beef to make the famous dish flamande carbonnade. We brew our interpretation with a fruity Belgian yeast strain, rich malts, dried cherries, prunes and the addition of a yoghurt culture. Rich yet tart, malty yet fruity, a perfect addition to a hearty dinner table.
