This week we launch the range of Salt Beer Factory beers on the site and what better way to introduce a new brewery to our beer hunters than to have a good 'ole fashioned interview with Nadir Zairi, Director of the Yorkshire based brewery in Saltaire.
There are signs that Non-Alcoholic beer is hitting the mainstream and is poised to hit the big time, but just how popular will it become? In this article I’ll look at some of the signs that show ‘NOLO’ (non or low alcoholic) beer is becoming a serious player in our industry, and how its development might progress in the UK.
After trying out our very own World Beers mixed case for a beer tasting party, Christie Day, Brand Expert at money-saving website Savoo shares her tips for hosting a top beer tasting night on a budget.
Ask someone down the pub for the reasons behind Britain’s recent Beer revival, and you’re guaranteed all sorts of different explanations. In 2017 the number of UK breweries passed the 2000 mark, which puts us well ahead of European neighbours. Most will have a reasonable argument for why, but you can bet your double-dry hopped DIPA that very few of them would mention Gordon Brown, ex-PM and former Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Picture this: the sun is shining, the grill is hot and your friends are telling you what an amazing person you are. The only thing that could make things better would be to have a keg of beer at your disposal. This doesn't have to exist only in your wildest daydreams (well, perhaps the sun actually shining when you want it to) because we can make the keg of beer part happen.
Perfect Draft is, well, the perfect accompaniment to any gathering: birthday parties, team-building events and, of course, BBQs. Keeping the kegs of Leffe Blond, Ruby, Royale and Rituel, as well as the lovely Frankziskaner Weissbier and Hoegaarden Wit at a chilly 3?C , each pour will be at a fantastically consistent temperature ensuring a fresh, crisp beer.
Each of the beers that we have available for the Perfect Draft system are all easily drinkable and appealing to many taste preferences. These refreshing beers are also a wonderful partner for food. Here are some of my BBQ pairing suggestions so that you can fire up that grill, call your friends and have a great day in the sun:
Try this with: Grilled sausages/hot dogs, grilled seafood, salads
Try this with: Grilled seafood/chicken, asparagus
Try this with: Cheeseburgers, jerk chicken
Try this with: Grilled salmon, grilled game burgers
Try this with: Charcuterie, smoked pulled pork
Try this with: Summer fruit Pavlova, Summer Berry Crumble
Obviously, this is just a start to get your Bank Holiday weekend BBQ going. As versatile as these beers are you can take this any direction you want, just remember some simple rules: you don't want the beer to overwhelm your food, try to find a complementary flavor and playing with contrasts can be fun. Have fun experimenting! Yet, no matter your plans we hope the sun shines on your this weekend. And that you receive much adoring praise from your grateful friends.
