Just back from a quick lunchtime pint at my local Wetherspoons, over the road. Now I’m not discussing whether Wetherspoon is a good or bad chain of pubs, all I know is that they usually have some superb guest ales, at amazingly low prices. And one of these was my tipple today, and it was brilliant.
It’s Brewster’s Hophead. 3.6% alcohol and pale in colour, but with bags of dry, complex, bitter, herby hoppy flavours. Fresh, food-friendly and deliciously edgy, this is one of my favourite styles of beer. Brewster’s website is here.
