Beer52 Craft Beer Subscription: Review

Website: www.Beer52.com

I have always enjoyed drinking a beer when I am out, though normally it would be a cocktail or rum.

Around mid last year, I started doing a Craft Beer tour in my home city Glasgow, where I take a group of people around 3 breweries and they get to try some craft beer.

Craft Beer? hmm I had heard of this term but I never really looked into it much or tried many or any craft beers. Due to me being the guide I started to look into it more, and wow it’s a massive area and growing every single day.

At each of these stops, I tried the breweries own Craft Beer, and more recently one off the menu just at random to see what other ones were like.

I use an app when I am out doing these tours, and also when I go out and have a craft beer called UnTapped. Its basically like Facebook but for beer checking in. It’s a great app to use, firstly it’s free and also if you tried a beer ages ago at a place and couldn’t remember what it was just open the app and have a look…plus many more features so take a look.

While using this app I got an offer for Beer52, they are a subscription service for Craft Beers. With a promo code, I got my first box for £6.95, that was 12 beers, snack and a magazine…I couldn’t say no to this and thought let’s try it. (NOTE you are auto-enrolled into a subscription and after that first payment it’s around £25 a month unless you change the option or cancel)

My first box arrived and I had many beers to try…

Sorry guys no photos of this one, but don’t worry I continued my subscription and got a second box.

To drink all the beers from my first box, it took me a while as I am now driving more so I can’t drink and drive…

Next Months Delivery…the beers magazine and snack arrived. I won’t go into detail about all the beers, but these ones were my favourites.

The above pic of the three craft beers were my top 3 from this months box, I have found I like a dark beer that has coffee or chocolate notes to it. This is strange as my normal pub beer is a light beer, so my taste is expanding and enjoying more.

The far left beer Ninkasi Blanche WOW this was a REALLY REALLY good beer!!!!! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for this one in the shops.

Overall

This is a good service and highly recommended, you can even have it every 2 months etc they will cater the subscription to your needs. The added magazine is a really great feature, as its a good read and you will learn more about beers etc.

What I have learned about my taste is, I like a dark sweet craft beer rather than a sour one but its good to try many styles.

This for me is a hard review, to be honest, I have never had there on my list to visit as I am not a big meat person or steak person….but tonight I visited to see what it was like.

Inside it was a lot bigger than it looked, and very open which I liked so I knew I wouldn’t be too close to the table next to me.

Tonight one of us had an ItIsOn, and I just went off the menu. I opted for the Rodizio Especial £18.95 (as was after 5pm)IMG_0997.jpg

So basically the idea is, from start to finish a waiter comes round the table and gives you a slice of something…..that something depends on what menu you opt to choose so it could be steak, lamb, chicken etc…

I didn’t take any photos as the presentation is not something you look for here, as its just slices of meat etc on your plate.

What meats etc I did try were nice, but I left with the same thought as I went in with…its a good restaurant for someone who is a big meat eater but for me….this style is not for me.

Don’t let my review put you off going, as I said this is my opinion and you could go and love it…so do please give them a shot and see if its something you like.

Brunch at MAYZE Coffees & Food (West End, Glasgow) : Review

974 Argyle Street
Glasgow G3 8LU

V: 17th February 2019.    W: facebook.com/mayzefinnieston


Today I was very undecided where to go for brunch, so I walked along Argyle Street and passed many places. There was a few that I wanted to go into but, I decided to try here as I saw a woman having something to eat and it looked very good.

Looking Around

Inside is an ok size, but it’s very popular so a few people who looked in passed by which is a shame…hopefully they returned.

Inside for me was ok, a little plane and just needed some more colour to give it more of a warmer feel.

The Food…

So looking at the menu it was all very healthy and more importantly for some people Vegan-friendly.

I asked opted for the French Toast, which is what that lady was having.

French Toast £7.50

homemade cinnamon brioche, stewed apples, custard and crumble

Now as you can see from the above photo, this is why I had to try this today look how good it looks!!!!

I asked before ordering what the crumble was and if it contained nuts, as I can’t do nuts but it didn’t which I was very happy about as I could order this the way it should be.

First bite….and the other bits were very very good!!!

Presentation : 5
Portion Size : 5

Overall

Overall my first visit was good, I do have two issues but due to the food being good I can easily forgive them.

First I did have to wait a while for the order to arrive, but they were making the custard fresh so I can forgive the wait.

The second one, looking at the table tops mine and around me they could do with either a good clean or a fresh coat of paint….or both….

I am planning on going back as I want to try the Eggs Benedict as that also looked very good.
