Thanks,The Beer Hawk Team.
Beer Hawk has only gone and sponsored GBBF!
Well this is exciting! It’s less than a week now until the annual beery shindig at London Olympia that is CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival. It’s the largest festival in Britain with over 50,000 beer-lovers expected to rock up and sample some of the 800 beers on offer.
What makes this year even more special for me is that Beer Hawk is one of the event sponsors and have even been asked to be a judge in this year’s Champion Beer of Britain awards. We’ll be there all week and will stand out nicely in our BeerHawk merchandise, so if you plan to come along too and spot one of the team then do come and say hello!
When we get back and have duly recovered from the intensity of 5 days beer sampling, we’re going to turn our attention to putting together what will be the finest collection of beer assembled under one box-lid in the whole of 2013. It’s a very special case indeed as it will contain the beers that fought all the way through to become finalists in the Champion bottled beer category. This will be exclusively available from Beer Hawk and after such stringent taste testing will surely be magic. Meh, who are we kidding we’ve seen the shortlist. IT IS MAGIC! Watch this space…
Sponsoring an event devoted to real ale may seem like an odd thing for us to do given that Beer Hawk is a home for great beer from across the world and not just British Real Ale, but GBBF is so much than a celebration of beer of a certain type. It’s a meeting of minds, a spiritual Mecca, a cultural homage to that most worthy deity that is a bloody good pint.
I go knowing that all the beer I try will be good, most will be great and a fine few will be outstanding. I know i’ll find some new ones that mean I can spend some time haranguing head brewers to pipe into bottles for us, but more than that I know I will come away knowing more about beer than I knew before. I’ll have had countless conversations with other beer lovers who’ve made me think harder about beer itself and also as no one is ever short of an opinion after a few days at GBBF, I’ll have had a ton of advice on how to make Beer Hawk even better.
If you are one of those conversations, I’m already looking forward to it so like I said do come and say hi and I’ll buy you a pint!
Pairing beer and food together isn’t all rules and science. That would make for a terribly boring dinner party! Instead, it’s the art of taking a good beer, some good food and partnering them together to make something even better. It’s the adventure of discovering what works, what doesn’t and what you like. It’s you taking a bite, taking a sip and then declaring your undying love for that imperial stout and chocolate cake.
Barrel-ageing beers is not a new thing, but it is getting more and more popular, and has probably never been as inventive. Adrian Tierney-Jones explores the new wave of ageing beer in wood
While some so-called off-flavours can be appropriate in certain styles others are not and may kill a little bit of your soul. Here's a quick guide to the most common off-flavours.
Father’s Day, 20th June 2021, is the special date in the calendar when we celebrate and give a nod to the Dads in our lives.

Another can spins off the line at Stone Brewing’s new brewery in Berlin. The speed of the whole process is astonishing, a matter of seconds from empty can to filled and sealed. Those amazing hop aromas that Stone Brewing’s IPA is known for are locked in, only to escape as you release the swirling lemon, pine, grapefruit aromas in one of the world’s best IPAs. Cans are the perfect container for this beer. And here’s why.
