I’ve never been a big beer drinker, I’ve always thought beer was just, well, beer?
Recently I have been shown the error of my ways and introduced to some pretty amazing brewery’s.
I’m pretty late to the whole craft beer hype but here’s my top four favourite brewery’s and some of their offerings.
Easily taking my top spot, I haven’t actually disliked any of their offerings and the packaging is insanely cool!
With 44 bars nation wide it’s hard not to have noticed these guys and their ethos is spot on.
If your quick you can still become a share holder with Equity for Punks but you’ll have to be quick as they only release a small amount of shares each time.
Punk IPA is my current fave from these lot.
I’m lucky enough to live close to two of the pubs these guys own so I get to taste a lot of their offerings.
A family run micro brewery who are clearly getting it all right.
I havent tried much from this particular brewery but I recently got to try un-human cannonball and have been blown away.
Made with fresh hops and a short shelf life that carries a warning to drink as quickly as possible.
Next thing I’m trying is a milk stout which I won’t lie I still have my reservations on but with all the weird and wonderful things I now know about beer nothing’s too far fetched.
With burger places on every street corner now doing every topping you could think of it’s getting hard to stand out in the burger crowd.
It was just the second night of the new menu launch when we went, a simple menu but all of it very tempting.
Both came with rosemary fries but we did order a side of onion rings to share. Be warned, the onion rings are HUGE!
Our food came out quickly but not so fast that I worried it had been microwaved. My burger was full to bursting with meat as was my partners and silence descended on our table for a good ten minutes whilst we wolfed them down.
The onion rings had been deep fried but stayed on the right side of greasy AND they stayed together when bit in too.
We washed everything down with good beer from two of our favourite breweries and rolled ourselves outta there with massive smiles on our faces.
If your fed up of chains, burgers being served on donuts, more toppings you could shake a stick at then literally “follow the herd” down to hide.
Visited Rescue Rooms in Nottingham last night for the album launch of HECK, The Instructions tour.
I’m not a metal head but these guys are awesome. Their stage presence is phenomenal, they spent a large portion of the gig in the crowd with the fans, crawling up on too the balcony and pretty much giving who ever does the health and safety for the venue a heart attack.
Big shout out to Raketkanon too.
This Belgian punk noise-rock foursome are completely mesmerising to watch and sing half of their stuff in a language they’ve made up.
I drank Beavertown beer and danced like no one was watching.
HECKs tour kicks off tomorrow and there’s still tickets available.
