  • Wonderful Whites For Summer!

    The June bank holiday this weekend kicks off the Summer season for most of us (even though the weather may not play along!), and what this means in terms of wine selection is a marked shift from red to white as we look for wines which will work well with the salads, seafood and lighter dishes gracing our tables.

    It isn’t always as simple as that though, some whites are better...

    India Pale Ale continues to be a the most popular style amongst craft beer drinkers and brewers are constantly looking for new takes on the style. For the last few years the trend in IPAs has been towards more and more hops with bigger, bolder flavours and in turn increasing the bitterness. The West Coast style IPA epitomizes this bigger bolder ethos. However in the ever evolving wo...

  • Darker Beer for Brighter Days

    So summer begins, or it will in another months’ time, depending on who you ask of course. We certainly have enjoyed some fine weather recently and with this I imagine people will turn to lighter styles of beer but that need not be the case.
