Beer Import

One of the things that makes it hard running a blog on British beer is that I am so far from the action. Often the beers that are discussed and debated are not available to me. So when Rumbles brought an import of 40 plus beers in recently including both Meantime and Brewdog beers I was excited to say the least.

Here’s what I bought:

- Meantime IPA

- Meantime Porter

- Meantime Pilsner

- Meantime Chocolate

- Meantime Coffee

- Meantime Wheat Grand Cru

- Brewdog Punk IPA

- Brewdog Hardcore IPA

- Brewdog Hoprocker

- Brewdpg Riptide

- Brain SA

- Bradfield Farmer Brown Cow

- Cropton Balmy Mild

- Coniston Old Man Ale

The bank balance groans, but I am happy, tastings to come.

Looks like a fine selection! Which one have you cracked open first..?

I started gently with Brains SA , Meantime Pils, and Bradfield Brown Cow. I have a cold now so that's put a pause on doing tastings.

Aah, brutal! Hope it clears up!

Tell em to send a few bottles up North, matey!

Very excited to see what you think of the Meantime haul, particularly their more exotic stuff. Can't remember being excited by the pils, but everything else on that list is fab, and I come back to them time and time again.

What do you mean by "IPA" in Brewdog Hardcore IPA?

IPA means India Pale Ale
