This week we’re looking back at some great beers we’ve had recently and chatting about what it means for a beer to be “on trend”.

Beer | Six Degrees North/Magic Rock ‘Magic Six’, Chorlton/Vocation ‘Sour & Death’ & Lervig/Hoppin Frog ‘Sippin Into Darkness’

Hopinions | Should beers in a brewery’s core range change to stay on trend?

Blogs | Pub Curmudgeon’s ‘Love of a lifetime‘ & Matt Chinnery’s review of Stokey Beer Fest

Prizeless Prize | The big box of nothing returns to the North this week as Cowboy Drinks Craft takes the honours


We’re grateful to Matt at Six Degrees North for sending us ‘Magic Six’ . The fact that we were given this beer for free did not influence our thoughts on it.
