Hazelnuts Rocket by Cervesa Espiga

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a Hazelnuts Rocket by Cervesa Espiga at The House of Doom

Bought this last year but set it aside after seeing a dodgy review. It’s not too bad, really; a little boozy (but then it is 11%), sticky, sweet & nutty. I’ve had a lot worse!

Fabulously aromatic & hoppy all-strata rye pale ale. Great depth of flavour for 4.7%.

Suitable Fruit Mirage by DEYA Brewing Company

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a Suitable Fruit Mirage by DEYA Brewing Company at The House of Doom

Other craft breweries may come & go or be the in-thing, but Deya & Wylam keep on consistently brewing great beers. This may not be the best thing either have done, but it’s still pretty fabulous.

Greyhounds Don't Like Jazz by Wylam

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a Greyhounds Don't Like Jazz by Wylam at The House of Doom

An accomplished, unfruited sour IPA. Greyhounds are obviously eminently sensible dogs, musically speaking.

We Say You, And We Mean Us, And We All Know How by Cloudwater Brew Co.

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a We Say You, And We Mean Us, And We All Know How by Cloudwater Brew Co. at The House of Doom

An explosion of massive hop flavours & booze. Would have preferred a DIPA version as the booze is a little distracting, but TIPAs seem to be the fashion at the moment.

Revenge of the Sticky Bud by Wylam

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a Revenge of the Sticky Bud by Wylam at The House of Doom

Great to get some Wylam action after too long without. This is dank & boozy; relief from another afternoon of the nutters & fruitcakes that come into the GC. If one more twat tells me that “they’re all the same price”, they’re getting a Glasgow kiss.

PATRONS PROJECT 1.06 // TOM JOY // AND BREATHE // BREWDOG // IMPERIAL COFFEE & PLUM STOUT by Northern Monk

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a PATRONS PROJECT 1.06 // TOM JOY // AND BREATHE // BREWDOG // IMPERIAL COFFEE & PLUM STOUT by Northern Monk at The House of Doom

Better than (a) the unintentionally sour beer I just had to drainpour & (b) any Northern Monk beer I’ve had in a while. Coffee with a hint of plum goes surprisingly well.

Oh...looks like I’ve got a dodgy can - I don’t think that this supposed to be sour. Pity.

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a PATRONS SOCIETY EXCLUSIVE 012 // FOR YOUR EYES ONLY // DDH IPA by Northern Monk at The House of Doom

I bought 8 beers from Northern Monk just over a week ago; the whole lot have been extremely disappointing, a complete waste of money. This one turns out to have been brewed in mid-December & is more or less tasteless. Hacked off 🤬🤬🤬🤬

БПАВК: Chocolate Torte by Three Hills Brewing

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a БПАВК: Chocolate Torte by Three Hills Brewing at The House of Doom

11% rather than the usual 10% & that extra 1% seems to make a difference - distinctly more boozy than usual. This one’s good, but still missing the velvety quality of last year’s BPAVKs.

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking a PM Pic At the Pike Trail by Cloudwater Brew Co. at The House of Doom

Very light pale, not a lot going on here...just an easy-going session beer. Probably better on a warm, sunny day rather than the coldest May Day bank holiday on record.

OFS034 // CAIPIFRUTA SOUR // BRAZIL by Northern Monk

Goatee Beard Of Doom is drinking an OFS034 // CAIPIFRUTA SOUR // BRAZIL by Northern Monk at The House of Doom

I have low expectations for most Northern Monk sours but this one’s not unpalatable; it’s basically just pineapple juice with a slight hint of beer. Not sour but very definitely sweet. Possibly a bit sickly sweet...
