Has anybody tried the Obadiah Poundage from Goose Island? I'm going to grab a couple of bottles. If anybody says it's good I might grab a couple more.

I found it a little thin and too many coffee notes for me (I react badly to coffee)

In fairness, I'm supplying 6 mixed crates for xmas. 3 of kernel's one each of bbno, partizan and ansbach and hobday, so maybe you should make the trip in the opposite direction.

A bit of the backstory to that now.

Quote:
I recent contributed White Shield to a ‘beer writers’ selection case’ put together by an online retailer. One unhappy recipient took to Twitter to say, ‘Pete Brown doesn’t know what he’s talking about. This beer isn’t even a proper IPA.

I could have tried to argue or explain. Instead, I imagined what Steve Wellington might do. I laughed out loud, turned off my laptop, and had another beer.


:lol: :lol:

Probably unavailable in Oz though :frown:

Haven't had a marble earl grey ipa for years. What a fantastic beer it is.

(They ran out the other week just as I was about to try it)

I'm a big fan of the Lagonda and the Earl Grey. Some of their other beers I find less interesting.

Hey HH, how much time, money and knowledge would it take to start up your own microbrewery ?
Let’s just say if I miraculously all of a sudden had a spare building and several thousand pounds going spare ..

it can be done quite cheaply and quickly, a lot of breweries are expanding and selling off old kit.

I've highlighted your major problem

It also depends how big you are aiming. A friend owns a brewery that is in his parents garage (OK, A decent sized garage) and he's making a living out of that. I think he has a 7 barrel plant but limited fermentation space.

Alternatively, a brewery I visited recently that's just starting up raised £2.5 million for a 20 hectolitre plant but have a fair bit of space. They reckon that's probably all they will ever need for a sustainable business employing 25 people or so - similar approach to Kernel.

Both of the people running the above businesses were experienced brewers already, one home brewing, one commercially.

Yup. Miranda & Bates are the owners. Now they have their own brewery up and running the national launch is next Thursday. I'm going to the Mikeller bar for it. Bates was the head brewer at BBNo force few years.

Ah yes, I know of him, but don't actually know him.

It'll be interesting to see how they go. A couple of people think they've lost their way a bit, but that could be from upscaling. Let me know what you think. Unfortunately I'm busy Thursday

The launch beer I tried at the brewery last week I really liked. At a minimum I expect quality and consistency to be high due to the experience of the brewer and the quality of the kit.

Shit, they went BrauKon, it'd better be good.

Although there's a brewery in hackney that has that kit and still can't brew a decent beer

Just at my mum's after a fairly traumatic evening. Dad had arranged for an old German colleague of his to bring back some beers from a brewery he heard was pretty good.

Not sure if it's my mood, but fraugruber's green is lord pale is fùcking sensational.

Cheers dad.

A German craft brewery - they are quite thin on the ground. I'll keep an eye out next time I'm over that way. They get good reviews.

Hang in there.

Azlan Roar is officially the best Boardie.

Edit. I also found this: https://www.heritagebrewingcompany.co.uk/shop/ which looks interesting.


Right, an update on this. Firstly, Beers of Europe is a brilliant site.

Secondly, Heritage Brewing don't do delivery. If you order online you get vouchers which you redeem at the shop. In Burton on Trent. Now this isn't quite as obvious on the website as you'd hope, in fact when I rang up to try and arrange delivery of the beers I'd just got my vouchers for, they were slightly astounded that anybody had managed to make the website work... Anyway, they are stupidly helpful, and are trying to sort out online distribution through e-beer (I think) which will hopefully be sorted in the new year. They brew some stuff that looks very good indeed.

Heritage do some interesting stuff, but they are a shambles.

If you get really stuck, get in touch. One of the beer distributors I know picks up from them irregularly, so I'd be able to get it to london for you at least.

Had a beer recently from Beer Baroness called "Drink Pink Darling". A strawberry driven "Rose" beer. Very pleasant and at only 4.5% excellent for a session in the sun.

Only downside is you have to talk in a pouncey accent.

One of the best little presents I got my old man was a sixer of Emerson's a few years ago. He is from Dunedin originally and would never spend $25 on a sixer for himself. Sometimes the smallest gifts are the best.
