Beer from The Beer Town (Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at The Beer Town contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their delivery service and some beers.

They recently launched a craft beer and craft cider home delivery service, and I accepted and checked it out.

About The Beer Town

Dunns Food and Drinks are a family run business based in Glasgow. Pre-covid, they supplied food and drink to many of Scotland’s restaurants, bars and hotels. However, due to the current situation, they have opened up their food and drink portfolio to the public via a home delivery, and click and collect service.

They have recently set up a retail shop online.

They decided it was probably too much for beer lovers to go through our 6,500 products online through the Dunns site. Therefore, they launched a brand new home delivery specialist craft beer and cider site –

The Delivery

What a massive delivery from them, they really spoiled me.

I have only tried two of the ones here, so it was going to be fun trying the other ones and learning a little about them and how they taste.

  • 4 x Hop House Cans
  • 4 x Brewgooder Cans
  • 4 x Williams Joker Cans
  • 4 x Offshore Pilsner Cans
  • 4 x Blue Moon Cans
  • 4 x West St Mungos

Hop House

I decided to start with this one, no particular reason. This was my first time trying this beer, so I would looking forward to how it tasted.

This was a very nice lagger it was 4.1% ABV and no IBU.

This was very easy lager to drink, and one that I would easily have again.

Williams Joker IPA

This was my second choice, and I think I have had this one before but it would have been ages ago.

It has an ABV of 5% and IBU of 30.

This was a really nice beer to drink, I sat sipping this while watching Netflix and really enjoyed it.

It has a good overall malt/hop balance and very easy to drink.⠀

Offshore Pilsner

I have never heard of this one before, or tried any beers from Sharps brewery so I was looking forward to trying something new.

It has a 4.8% ABV and has no IBU which sounded perfect to me.

wow this was a really nice beer, I really enjoyed this. It was very light, easy to drink and had a really nice taste….this is definitely one I would have again.

WEST St mungo’s

I have had this beer before, I used to do before lockdown local Glasgow brewery tasting tours and WEST was one of the stops on the tour.

This is a really nice beer, just like others very easy to drink and a nice taste.

Brewgooder Clean Water

A very light tasting beer, but surprisingly really good and easy to drink.⠀

Brewed by BrewDog at zero-margin with 100% of the profits are used to fund clean water projects in the developing world, Clean Water Lager allows you to drink beer and give water.

Bluemoon belgian white

I couldnt wait to try this one as it was a wheat ale and I had heard a few good things about this beer in the past.

This was such a nice tasting beer for me, and even my dad loved this so much he had two of my cans.

This is another one I would have again.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the delivery, service and beers.

Firstly a big thanks to The Beer Town for sending me these amazing beers.

Their service was perfect, the communication was very good and the guys who emailed me were very pleasant and nice to deal with. The delivery was great and so was the beers.

I have no hesitation to recommend The Beer Town, everything from start to finish was perfect.

UNLTD Alcohol Free Premium Craft Beer : Review

GIFTED


A good while ago on Instagram, I was scrolling on Instagram and I started seeing this dark image with shiny silver text. This post grabbed my attention, and I clicked through.

I was taken to UNLTD’s instagram page, well bravo guys the marketing worked as you caught my attention.

I love trying all types of beers, and more recently started to try alcohol free beer and found this is a very hit or miss area….plus it has the added health benefits over normal beer.

How was this beer?…..keep reading.

The Branding

How nice does this look, black bottle, black label and shiny silver text that just instantly jumps out and catches your eye.

The beer, The Taste

Style : Lager
Notes : Malty, hints of honey
ABV% : 0.5%⠀
IBU: 0⠀

Now its was time to taste.

So as I said at the start of this review, I have recently tried a lot of non alcoholic beers. For me this is either a hit or miss well mega miss.

I have had a few that just taste so so, and had a few that just tasted like water with very little flavour.

UNLTD is the game changer! its a light lager but with a good taste! I felt like I was actually drinking a beer and not flavoured water, and I enjoyed every mouthful.

I tried this beer with some crisps, and other nibbles and it worked really well.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the beer.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at The Alcohol Free Brewing Co. for sending me some bottles of UNLTD.

UNLTD is a new beer, and one that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend either if your looking to try something different or if your into your alcoholic free beers.

I am going to be ordering more, so keep watching for more pics on my instagram.

Cheers
