Anspach & Hobday – Stout Porter

Beware! This is 8.5% abv, the dangerous thing is you absolutely wouldn’t guess it from the taste. This brew hits the pallet with hints of chocolate and a thickness like marmite. Unlike other Stouts and Porters it doesn’t leave a bitter taste in the month and is infact a very delicate taste. I find a lot of dark beers can almost staine the tongue allowing you to taste nothing else for at least half an Read more…

Clarkshaws – Hellhound

I really like most of Clarkshaws beers so it was a given that were going to include one of their beers in our 12 Beers of Christmas pack, but which one. In the end we chose the Hellhound IPA – A fantastic example of a proper, British ale. This is what I imagine London Pride would have been like before mass production. Ian from Clarkshaws Brewery has managed to get a good balanaced ale which Read more…

Partizan Brewing – Lemongrass Saison

Generally speaking if you were to ask me what my favourite beer is this would top the list. There’s many, many different craft beers out there and many different Saisons on offer but, as with many of their beers, Partizan Brewing of South Bermondsey have created a really tasty and unique beer. Chances are if you take a subscription package from us a Partizan beer is going to be one of the first you try. Read more…

Pear Cider – Turners Cider – Marden, Kent

As they’re just down the road from the Love Beer HQ, I thought I’d jump in the van and head down into the heart of Kent to visit the family-run Turners Cidery in Marden. If you’ve read my previous posts on Cyder, you’ll know that my cider drinking career has been based mainly around Scrumpy – the variety brewed in plastic barrels, quite often in a shed by an old boy picking a few apples Read more…

Real Cider, Cyder or Cider?

We’ve got some local Real Cider (AKA Cyder) going out to one of our clients this week so I thought we should quickly explain the differences here: As someone who grew up amongst Kentish apple orchards, I’ve grown up with proper apple juice being readily available and once I came of age, Cyder was really the only thing on offer. It wasn’t until I went to university that I experienced a fizzy cider, and to Read more…

Craft Beer – Why Bother?

The craft beer revolution is underway. In 2015 sales were up 14%, whilst sales of traditional beers fell by a similar amount; but what is all the fuss about? First off, I should preface this by saying that the ‘Craft Beer’ currently available in most supermarkets is not actually craft beer. Brew Dog and Meantime are pretty much the only mass-produced craft beers out there, and with Meantime having been bought by SABMiller (owners of Read more…

#1 – Off the Starting Block with our First Craft Beer Delivery

The first order received is like laying the foundation stone for a building. It has been something to build upon, and something to learn from. Everything has to start somewhere and I’m pleased to say current clients have been more than happy with our services. We kicked things off with one of our favourite brewers, and a fantastically unique beer. Partizan Brewing’s Lemongrass Saison is a beautiful pale ale style beer. ‘Saison’ is taken from Read more…
