    Yes thanks @Chopsicle. I’m no.10 on the list but my request for a medium in olive got lost at some point. I’ll reply with that to your DM when it comes through though. Ta

    Best of luck! Deya stout is great. Neither maple or pecan jump out as obvious flavours when you taste it but it’s got a nice sweet/nutty/roasty vibe which is spot on in my opinion

    Nearly grabbed a can last week but went for a couple pales from them that I hadn’t seen before. I’ve heard good things though

    Got a can of haze in the fridge for this afternoon, it’s one of my favourites of their output too. I’m all over the stouts at this time of year but enjoy the juicy IPAs all year whatever the weather

    Wallop! Ultimate pub snack. Although “pub salad” aka a packet of crisps with Tabasco all over them will do in a pinch

    Hopefully I didn’t put that idea in your head and you came to that conclusion of your own volition!

    The margins are neither here nor there. My point is that is a wildly over-hyped beer that's no better than any other DIPA that Verdant or anyone else makes. When you compare it to the Deya beer I mentioned it's just not as nice in my opinion, so the fact that it's £2 a can more expensive makes for an underwhelming experience rather than a price scandal. If they're selling out I'm genuinely happy about that as a supporter of independent businesses and a Cornishman myself. I'm just baffled by the hype around what is just another DIPA.
