Our headline for this month is the return of Anspach and Hobday. A Bermondsey beer mile mainstay and a brewery that are really hitting the right notes with their core range as well as specials.
We took the whole range on so you can try as many as possible. The Porter is their flagship and first beer and extremely well executed. For more summer drinking the Citrus Sour and the Noble Saison are real thirst quenchers….along with a Session Porter which goes down a treat well chilled.
Second up we have some of the best beers in London this year. BBNo – as you probably already know – are a firm fav of ours but these beers blew us away. Of the three I was expecting to love the Session IPA and like the others but the Blueberry and Lime Berliner Weiss and even more so the Triple Fruited Gose were out of this world. Highly highly recommending both of these or I will drink them all quite happily!
Next up are a few old favourites. We have restocked on some classic core from Weird Beard. The hoppy trio of Trench, Little Things and Shadow are some of the beers that started the craft beer adventure for me. All well worth a stock up or revisit if it’s been a while. We’ve also added their new hopped pale ale Gravelands too.
OK, an absolute treat for you next. Not only have we stocked up on one of our favourite beers from Hammerton (Crunch Peanut Butter Milk Stout) we’ve grabbed some Fudge Cake too! Wow, talk about indulgence in a glass! Fancy something lighter? We have their 440ml cans of their NEPA and Concrete Jungle. The latter is our pick of the brews – it’s criminally easy to drink.
Last but not least we have added another brewery that’s been away from our shelves since last year in the shape of Bianca Road. They have so many summery beers brewed at the moment it was hard not to. The stand out brews for me are the LA Bloods orange zest and the new table beer Costa Mesa.
If you are on a 2 or 3 month deal don’t miss our new Outsider brewery Wild Beer and their eclectic range. A long-time favourite of mine it’s a pleasure to welcome them to the site with their brilliant mix of experimental ingredients and well rounded core beers.
We also had loads of new stuff from Weird Beard, Redemption and Seven Sisters to name a few.
I hope you enjoy picking these beers as much as I enjoyed hunting them out and trying them for you/me!
Cheers and keep smiling in the sun!
