Next beer was a Session IPA from De Molen.
Next up, I was starting my hour behind the bar in the glorious, world famous, Free Trade Inn in Byker.
Back with me to review this beer was my good friend Rob!
For a real treat, friend of the show Gary (@TheAleTrail) brought along a double 100 rated beer from the US.
Midday and well into the 24 hours, time for something special.
For this beer, I was joined by Chris from StuBrew and Jamie from Northern Alchemy.
Next up I took a stroll round to The Town Mouse and reviewed a beer with friend of the show and Town Mouse landlord, John.
Post Park Run, I met up with the Brew Stories lads to review Wylam Table Beer.
Its 9am and life awakes around me. I’m off to do the Parkrun in Newcastle but first a beer review.
This time joined by friend of the show, Charlie.
Its 8am, you’ve been up all night, what you need now is a milk stout…
Perhaps Big Drop Milk Stout is the perfect answer!
Here it is folks!
We’ve kept you long enough. What started out as me putting 3 beers forward as a raffle prize, soon developed into a tremendous stash of beers through donations from the following people:
Coppers of Gosforth (@CoppersGosforth)
Autumn Brewery (@AutumnBreweryCo)
Flash House Brewery (@FlashHouseBrew)
Box Social Brewery (@BoxSocialBeer)
Errant Brewery (@ErrantBrewery)
Brinkburn Street Brewery (@BrinkburnStBrew)
A huge thank you to all those who donated. It turned the prize pot into an amazing array of beer. I wouldnt have raised anywhere near as much as we did without those donations.
So what of the winners? Well you could listen to the show (well you should really), but for those in a hurry, here’s the list of winners:
1st Prize: Big Beer stash (made up various donations) – Chris Potts
