Tried the two on the left. Not seen the ones on the right yet.
I've had all before except Sint Amatus. Going to sit on them for a while.
Not yet. They're in my 'cellar'. :)
Ha! I went to Kris Wines in London for the first time today and he recommended the Pannepot and a Jopen
Good place that, they've got a sister shop in Cambridge near the station too.
Update, that Pannepot was grim
I'm going to admit it, I haven't enjoyed any De Struise beers yet except the Imperialist Pils and that was a collaboration.
That Rye Quad was fucking rank.
I wasn't overly impressed with two of their Tsjeese series, 2015 and 2013 I think.
Aestatis and St. Amatus were nice, Black Albert and Cuvée Delphine verged on outstanding.
best leave that 2015 for a few years and get the 2012. that's lovely.
The mistake you're all making here is drinking Belgian beer instead of Yorkshire beer.
Black Albert is incredible but I haven't been a huge fan of any of the other De Struise beers I've had. Just had a look and I've got a 2012 bourbon barrel aged Reserva Rye Triple (their spelling) in the cupboard. There was also a bottle of Beavertown Heavy Water which must have been from around the same time in there that I'd forgotten about
Mmmmm Heavy Water, crack that baby open
I have both Pannepot 2012 and Blue Monk. Both superb. Brought several back.
Weird Beard have just released a wee heavy ale. Fingers crossed it's up to their usual standard and they haven't done anything silly like making it hoppy.
Making a rare trip to East London this weekend to check out Howling Hops and Mason & Co. Got dinner booked at Duke's Brew and Que, mmm ribs.
Im not sure what changed, but I actually rate Crate beer now. Might be worth dropping in as you'll be next door
Yeah I never rated them but have heard good things lately
I thought Mason and Co. was rubbish, it was dead when I went (a Thursday in a large group), lacked atmosphere, smelt a bit weird and the selection of beer was unexciting. Hopefully will be better on a weekend!
Mason and Co have a Wylam tap takeover tonight so I'm hoping they'll be some beers leftover from that on Saturday
Get the mixed plate that has the beef rib, pork rib and brisket. It's nuts. Don't eat for a day before you go.
Oh yeah already eyed that bad boy up
M&S on TCR still have a load of Sierra Nevada Nooner pilsners for £1.29 in their fridge which seems a bargain if you are in the area.
Was skeptical about Thornbridge's sours and thought they were priced too high (seen them from £11 - £18 for 375ml bottle) but Simon got me Love Among the Ruins for Christmas and it is delicious. It's a sour red aged in burgundy barrels with cherries.
