Beers CAMPERVAN BREWERY – WHEAT REVENGE 2.70

5

As the name implies, Campervan started as a travelling brewery. Founder Paul Gibson started brewing in his garage and his beers proved popular. This is a hidden gem in the Scottish Beer world – it shows perfectly what a wheat beer should be. It will attack your senses with Japanese Sorachi Ace hop flavours, then hit your mind with a hint of coconut coated with some sweetness. It can be enjoyed all year round and it’s delicious during the warmer months.

UERIGE – ALTBIER 3.39

4.7

Produced at Uerige Obergarige Hausbrauerei since 1862, this beer is brewed today following the same 19th century recipe. It is fermented at regular temperatures and conditioned at cooler temperatures for a clean palate. Uerige Alt is Germany’s richest bitter beer and also one of the finest German beers I’ve tried (there have been more than a few). It represents all the qualities that one should expect from a good German beer. It always earns top awards at beer competitions worldwide.

EXILED INOLVIDABLE STOUT 2.95

6.8

This brewery was founded by four partners from different parts of the world. Their beers are permeated by a passion for brewing and fine beer. They focus on using German and British malts to get the best of both worlds. This is my definition of a great stout. It has a palate of dark chocolate, dusty cocoa, dark fruits and a lingering coffee and caramel aftertaste. The beer has a silky palate and a long finish. Perfect for the cooler months.
