Fuller’s

For our 2017 Summer Special, Steve visited Fuller’s Brewery and spent the morning with Head Brewer, Georgina Young.

In this special episode, George shares here brewing journey with us, some background to Fullers and we get to sample ‘Oliver’s Island’, ‘Seafarers’, ‘London Pride’, ‘London Pride Unfiltered’ and ‘India Pale Ale’.

Information on the Fuller’s public tours is available here.

 

This visit was arranged through the Fuller’s PR team and neither the tour or the beers cost us anything. This didn’t change our views on anything and we are grateful for the hospitality shown to us by both the PR team and George.

Revisited 04 – Junction

 

Once again we go back to a beer from the early days and taste it with our more refined palate.

This time, it’s the fantastic Sambrook’s Junction, a beer we loved so much the first time round that we were desperate to try again.

It’s the highlight of the season, the homebrew special!

How will be like it now? Well, that’s somewhat the point of these specials…

The UK Top 10 Ales

 

We have our first brewery to win 2 polls, running away with the votes on this one…

1. Marble Pint 3.9% ABV (bitter)
Former guest on the show and Manchester-based blogger Rowan Molyneux has this to say about the winning beer… Marble has been one of my favourite breweries since I started drinking beer, and when I moved to Manchester I was delighted to be able to drink in Marble’s own pubs. Zingy, pale and fresh, Pint is a stalwart of the Marble range. Full-bodied despite its low ABV, the grapefruit and lemon flavours sing from the glass and its clean, refreshing nature leads you towards ordering another, and another…. To drink this by anything less than, well, the pint, would be an injustice! For me, Pint is the perfect session beer.

Winging It

Acton means “oak farm” or “farm by oak trees”, and is derived from the Anglo-Saxon ac (oak) and tun (farm). Originally an ancient village, as London expanded, Acton became absorbed into the city. In days gone by the high street was the main thoroughfare to London from Oxford and as such was adorned with many coaching houses. It is due to this location of one such inn that I find myself with #SomeRandomBlokeOffTwitter Justin Mason of Get Beer Drink Beer in the 17th century George & Dragon on a Thursday evening late in May for the launch of the Dragonfly Brewery that is the latest addition to the London (micro)brewing scene and that is housed in the back of the building.

Put The Needle On The Record

When I was growing up, vinyl was a huge part of my life. I would save up my pocket money, head into London and spend ages just browsing row upon row of records in HMV in Oxford Street until I found the record that would be worthy of my money on that particular day trip. I would scour the pages of Kerrang and NME to look out for the newest, limited edition releases be it on coloured vinyl, 10″ or picture disc and I would absolutely NEED those things. While as an adult my vinyl obsession hasn’t continued, it had been replaced by a new obsession. I now scour my twitter feeds to look out for the newest, limited edition releases and launches and it was because of this that I came to find out that Signature Brew, a brewery who epitomise the music and beer connection, were launching a new range of beers in London this week.
