Gruit Beer: better beer brewed with botanicals

Surely you can’t brew beer without hops, right? If you thought that was true, you’d be wrong! Before adding hops to beer became a thing, beers were made bitter with a blend of herbs and spices like wormwood – that’s absinthe to you and me – heather, spruce tips and a whole pharmacopeia of botanicals in a style known as gruit, grut or gruyt. Can... Read more

I'm still standing... Our guide to Session IPA

So you've never tried a Session IPA… Awesomely flavoursome Session IPAs are a lighter alternative to regular IPAs that often top out at over 6% ABV. These diminutive beers are like Oompa-Loompas – they might be small in stature, but they’re no less powerful. And they’re kind of orange coloured.

Chilli & Beer – Spice up your life

Chilli and beer have definite a thing going on. The traditional antidote to a fiery chile con carne or fearsome vindaloo curry is beer. Or lots and lots of beers. Preferably lager. But when you’ve just gone off-the-scale in Scoville units, is industrial utility beer the only thing worth drinking, or is there still a place for Craft Beer? "Of course: Lager! The only... Read more

Yes, we CAN! - Craft Beer's bright, shiny future...

Picture the scene: a rugged guy wearing 501s and two days’ stubble walks into a Texas dive bar and orders a beer. The barman pulls out a bottle of ice-cold industrial utility beer, glistening with condensation (the beer, not the barman), pops the cap, and hands it to the stranger, who drinks it STRAIGHT FROM THE BOTTLE! It’s a movie trope we’ve all seen a... Read more

What is a Lager?

When you think about Lager, you probably think about pale fizzy blonde beer with not much taste. Great for barbecues and refreshment on scorching hot days but not much else. But there's much more to Lager than bubbles! So what’s the difference between lager and beer? It comes down to two things: temperature and yeast.
