I’ve just opened the first bottle of my Xmas beer pressie, thanks to my good wife Nic. It’s a box of Brewdog beers – a young Scottish brewery who really know how to make great beer.
The box contained two “Trashy Blondes” , “77 Lager”, “Punk IPA”, and 4 bottles of “Hardcore IPA (9%)”
The 77 lager is fantastic, if only pub lager was anywhere near as good. It’s full of fresh hops – it still feels like there’s some lager hops in there, but it’s mouthfuls of the stuff, with a loooong after taste. Mmmm. I’ve had the punk IPA before (it’s fantastic, 6% and full of flavour), and I’m yet to open the Hardcore IPA – at 9% I need to warm up!
All topped off nicely with a Brewdog glass – “Beer for Punks” emblazened on its side.
Xmas is here!
