BeerMeNow Craft Beer Subscription Box: Review

Website: www.beermenow.co.uk

I decided to put a pause on my Beer52 boxes, and jump over to try BeerMeNow.

I got talking to these guys on Instagram and it sounded like a good one to try, they gave me a little back story and some information on the beers and that night I subscribed.

A few days later a box arrived at my work and I had to open and take a quick peek.

Ok so this was a little different to Beer52, but I am not doing a comparison review so I will stop there.

I liked the handwritten envelope that put a smile on my face, the next thing I noticed was that each can and bottle was individually wrapped which I liked as it showed me they take care of what they deliver.

I also liked that some gifts were included like the beer mats, pen and a welcome/beer description letter.

The Beers…

Obviously, there are many beers so doing an individual review for each would be cray and mega long so I will tell you a quick overview.

The box contained a mix of different beers from UK breweries including; pale ales, browns, ambers, sours, bitters, stouts and porters.

It took me a while to get through the beers, but it was a great experience to my tastebuds and I learned a little about each brewery on the way.

I tried the Mad Squirrel beer first and wow a VERY good beer, I was off to a good start so I continued…well not all in the one night. If I saw this beer for sale here in Glasgow, I would definitely pick up a few cans.

My next favourite was from Calverleys Brewery the Porter, mmmm another really good beer that was very easy to drink.

And also in my top 3 beers was the Cocow Stout beer from Ampersand Brewery. This was sooo good and I loved the chocolate tones in this as I have a sweet tooth and anything chocolatey is a winner.

The above were my top 3 beers from this months subscription box, these are the ones that stood out for me and my taste buds. The other beers were also very good, and from other breweries, I had never heard of which I loved as its always good to try new things.

Overall :

Overall I enjoyed the service from BeerMeNow, I liked the attention to detail in wrapping the individual beers, the little handwritten envelope and the little gifts that came with it. These guys are also very social, and liked and commented on the photos I posted to Instagram or Twitter which is good as everyone likes companies that are very social.

It was great to try beers from breweries that are still unknown to me, and beers that might never be sold up here in Glasgow.

Guys if you like craft beer here is another subscription box that I would recommend, give them a go and see what you think.

Chat to me on here via the comments below, or on my Twitter or Instagram and let me know if you have tried BeerMeNow or have just joined and your thoughts. I want to hear from you so let’s have a wee chat 🙂

Can’t wait to try my second box 🙂

Cheers

Yeah, guys finally getting round to post this as have SOOOO many posts to well post….

Something I don’t do enough is meet up with other bloggers, and today I was meeting Emma (Emma Eats) and Wendy (Weekends with Wendy) for brunch at Singl-end in Glasgow.

I have never been here before which really shocked the girls, but I never visit this back street more the main one….so let’s see what I thought of it.

First thing this place is very cute inside, and if your a dog owner then this is a great place for you as its dog-friendly.

Since it was brunch I didn’t want to eat too much in case I went out for dinner later.

The Food…

Singl-end Smoothie : Sunshine on Glasgow £4.95

This was very thick but very nice, so I would just sip this from start to end of the brunch.

It was packed with great flavours that worked really well, and I would have it again when I visit next.

WOW ok on arrived I never expected it to be this big!!! I knew I had a challenge ahead of me….and dinner might not happen later 🙂

This was AMAZING!!!! every mouthful was great, the flavours overall just perfect and the portion size was really good and excellent value for money.

I finished it all and felt full but not ready to explode full which is always good.

Overall

My first visit here won’t be my last, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food.

I also liked that it was dog-friendly so this is a great help to anyone that owns a dog, as there are not many places that cater to this….well for now

Everyone inside today looked very relaxed, having a nice time with friends or family….and enjoying the food…even the dogs.

This is a new one on my list that I will aim to visit again.

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!!!

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.
