Beer No Evil

It’s been faaaar too long since I’ve added to this page, especially when I’ve been drinking lots of great beer.

I moved to Worthing and fell in love with Beer No Evil – beer shop and tap room.  Fridges filled with delicious beers and lots of focus on local.

After a few ‘tipsy’ evenings, the owners, Gemma and Gareth, tipped me off about getting 2/3 glasses rather than pints as they’d discovered I really like my meaty IPAs or DIPAs. Me and many 7% pints ain’t pretty.

Lockdown happened and they’ve created a super safe hand-picked to our tastes beer box order (and delivery service with Gareth’s trusty steed/bike).

Here’s tonight’s treats:

// Happiness Runs. Brewed by: Duration with Double Barrelled and Simply Hops. 3.5%
– light with a digestivey after taste

// Shaka. Brewed by Hand Brew Co. 4%

– nice and local (Brighton). Have had this before and enjoyed. Really like the art work by Hello Marine. Easy to quaff. Little light on flavour, but a solid pale.

// A Better Party. Brewed by Howling Hops. 4.8%

Firstly, if you’re in East London, make time to while away some time at Howling Hops – it’s a great tankroom in Hackney Wick with excellent little food pop ups.

Secondly, this is tasty. Hoppy but still quite light.

// Tomorrow. Brewed by Burning Sky. 5%

Great, local brewer. This was really nice. Casky vibes and a good level of hoppiness.

// Never Dug Disco. Brewed by Cloak and Dagger. 5%

Note made last night: fruity, punchy, tasty (a little thicker and that’s a good thing!) ….I agree with my last night’s self.

// DDH Idaho 7. Brewed by Brick Brewery. 6%

Tropical and delicious. Probably my favourite.

// Looper. Brewed by Full Circle Brew Co. 6.4%

Note last night: thick and tasty. I was clearly just enjoying the 6%ers. That’s my vibe.

// Yakima Valley. Brewed by Arbor ales. 7%

Smooth, hoppy, bursting with flavour – ruddy lovely AND pint sized can 👌

// Sky High. 8%

This is one David stole from me as he was ahead with the sampling. He graced me with a sip and it was hoppy with a lovely aftertaste. Really fun can.

Unbarred

Helloooo, new favourite brewer!

The aforementioned, Bison Beer‘s beer advent calendar is going down a treat and – quite frankly – I’m not sure what I’m going to do when it’s gone. So far I’ve had many treats, but my top three thus far all come from the same brewery: Unbarred. Why? I hear you ask. Well, read on:

1// The packaging is something to behold. Either simple and gorgeous colours (PA and RIPA) or just ruddy awesome design (Honeycomb Milkshake Pale)

2// What’s inside – don’t judge a beer by its cover. Oh wait, do because the beer on the inside of these cans is just as marvellous as the packaging. Really tasty and very different. Apparently, they have even made some adjustments to the Honeycomb Pale while responding to feedback (they’d be highly praised for this attitude in my lessons!)

1b// So, I’m not obsessed or anything, but the feel of the paper they’ve used on the packaging gives me the feels. You know there’s quality behind it!

Anyway, highly recommend and am hoping for these cans to turn up in Bison’s Hove Actually soon – so pretty (and tasty, I’m sure!)

Decembeer

****It’s the most wonderful time of the year (hope you sang that too!)****

I was bought the most magical birthday present this year: a Beer Advent Calendar (thanks, David!)

Best things about it:

> It’s very pretty

> It’s filled with local beers with beautiful labels

> I get to punch through a box each night

> I don’t have my advent treat before work (and accidentally have 5 days….)

Worst things about it:

> My giant hands feel even bigger as they struggle to extract the yeasty, hoppy goodness from their caverns.

Thank you Bison Beer!

PTEREDACTALE

I’m a sucker for word play.

But this Pompey-based and humble brewery ‘Staggeringly Good’ has also brewed me a delicious red ale.

// Yummy strawberry-esq hoppy taste

// Roasty after taste

// CAMRA say it’s a real ale

// Did I mention the dinosaur?

Dry January

So, I’m doing dry January um…no. Not again.

I am @leahmoo on Untappd and will more frequently post there, so until my next delicious beer that deserves a post of its own below are two lists.

Here’s a list of my top rated thus far:

(7Fjell brewery should be on here, but internet was as expensive as the beer in Norway and I prioritised!)

And of course, a list of stats:
