Beer Trends for 2019

So, after several months of inactivity here (caused by a whole host of activity thanks to a new arrival) I figure I should get back into the swing of things and kickstart the BeerCast for another year. From now on I’ll be concentrating solely on Scottish beer and brewing, trying to bring more of the ... The post Beer Trends for 2019 appea ...

Beer Trends for 2018

It’s been a while but after a couple of months distanced from my fifty-two beer year (although in truth I managed a lot more than 52) it’s back to the grindstone with this, a look ahead into 2018 and a few trends I think will become apparent over the course of the year. As ever ... The post Beer Trends for 2018 appeared first on The ...

Beer of the Week – Swannay Orkney Imperial Stout

So, the series ends here. All throughout 2017 I have been trying to cast a light on some of the beers produced by Scottish breweries that I feel deserve a little more attention. Whether they are under-appreciated, modern classics or just plain flying under the radar, every week I have listed a new entrant that ... The post Beer of the Week &nda ...

Beer of the Week – Williams Bros Nollaig

Not long to go with the year-long journey through the most unsung beers Scotland produces – so with just two left it’s time to roll out the big guns.

Beer of the Week – Stewart Cauld Reekie

Just three more Fridays remain in 2017, so time for the final few selections in my great under-rated Scottish beers feature. It’s been quite a haul, in both senses of the word, but here we are – only three more spaces to fill with unsung heroes of Scottish brewing. To be honest this feature could ...

Beer of the Week – Six Degrees North Hop Classic

Another recommendation from yours truly of a single beer that I believe is currently flying under the radar and deserves a little more recognition. With so many new beers appearing on the Scottish scene ... The post Beer of the Wee ...

Beer of the Week – BrewDog Jack Hammer

The week ending is a sign that you should reach for your beer collection and toast the completion of another five days of hard graft (assuming you work Monday-Friday and actually do some graft, that is). But the question is, what to reach for? With dozens of new Scottish beers hitting the shelves recently it ... The post Beer of the Week &ndash ...

Sours – Big Beer’s Latest Sweetener?

This week has seen a flurry of newly-announced ‘strategic partnerships’ between small independent breweries and larger corporations. Two days ago, Colorado’s Avery Brewing Company sold 30% to Mahou San Miguel, yesterday Heineken UK took a minority stake in the Brixton Brewery – and overnight news appeared that Pirate ...

Beer of the Week – Cross Borders Porter

Friday is with us once again and that can mean only one thing. It’s time to hit the town. But if you’re saving yourself and that extra-special Christmas jumper for the host of December parties, maybe just hit the town and pick up a single beer to drink at home. Yes it’s another unsung beer ... The post Beer of the Week – ...

Caveat Emptor – Don’t Grab and Go…

Recently in the last couple of weeks something has happened to me – twice – that has never happened before. Maybe it’s a sign of my advancing years, I don’t know, but it certainly was something I never remotely considered back in the day. I guess it happens to every beer fan as they get ...
