Blueball Brewery Open Day


Of course it’s under a railway arch. Where else would it be?     I’ve had the pleasure of drinking my bodyweight in beer in the original Kash, Kash 22 which eventually followed and now I can add Kash 33 on that list as well.     What’s Kash 33? Well, it’s what it all was always about. This is…

More beer than you can handle: CraftBeerCo Covent Garden


If I didn’t live in Cheshire where arguably the best breweries lie, I’d be totally envious of London. On a quick day trip there for work, hubby and I popped in the CraftBeerCo in Covent Garden and kinda just never wanted to leave.     Opened in May 2014, the Covent Garden venue is the sixth pub in the CraftBeerCo…

Beer and beats at the April BrewBarn festival


So Saturday the sun was a-shining, the beer was a-flowing and the music was a-playing. The conditions were pretty good for the Spitting Feathers BrewBarn day at the brewery, and they certainly rose to the occasion. And how!     What’s a “BrewBarn” then, I hear you ask.

This Ale Lover Extraordinaire got to put her money where her mouth was and actually get her hands (and clothes, doh) dirty.     International Women’s Day celebrates the social,…

Beer Without Fear March


Beer Without Fear is a clever concept. It’s a monthly beer tasting  in the Cellar Bar which aims to serve you the most bonkers, insane and intense beers from around the world in 6 tries. Two judges go head to head presenting 3 beer each and in the end the beer tasters vote for their favourite. Simple? Yes, unless you’re…

Chester Beer Awards 2017


  The top of the hops in the Chester beer scene were given recognition this Saturday in the second annual Chester Beer Awards, my favourite event of the year. Okay, I am a little biased on this and it’s purely because it’s my very own creation.   When hubby and I last year envisaged an award event to really recognize…

Wildly Different – Wild Beer at Wapping Wharf


  If you’re a beer geek, just the name Wild Beer will get you at least a little excited. And a place where you can drink all the Wild Beer you can handle will probably make you pop. And the thought of Wild Beer, 22 draft beers, and a bucket load of bottles and cans in one place might just…

About beer and why more women should drink it


   “Hi, my name is Kat, and I like beer.”   No, I’m not a member of the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or even of the AB (Anonymous Beerlovers), this is how I usually introduce myself when I meet new people. Why? Not because I think beer drinkers are an identifiable group like Lambrini Girls, but because beer is what I…
