Intertwit.com has been busy drinking beer in July and this month was a very tough call for us to choose our favourite beer of the month.
Why? Well, we’ve been drinking fabulous Vocation beers! The Hebden Bridge Brewery really produces some very special product and we bought them in a Tesco of all places. Amazingly they’re in cans! Check these two out if you don’t believe us:
We’ve also been on a Beer Tour round London’s uber trendy Bermondsey Beer Mile. Look what we drunk there:
Brew By Numbers Belgian White Ale
and a whole stack of stuff from Fourpure:
However, as Intertwit.com will have a full feature on the Bermondsey Beano trip shortly we decided that our July Beer of the Month is Church End Brewery’s Arthur’s Wit 6.0%. Well done lads!
We’ve been drinking Church End stuff when ever we see them over the past few years and in particular we much admire the lovely Fallen Angel and the fabulous Vanilla Porter.
Arthur’s Wit is an example of what Church End brew so well – a strong beer, full of flavour that gently caresses your pallete before slipping down ever so smoothly. Unlike many strong beers it’s not sweet or cloying but it is 6% so treat it with respect. We were only drinking halves so we could walk home in a straight line.
The Church End brewery is based near Nuneaton in Warwickshire so if you’re in the vicinity pay it a visit. And they’ve got their own tap. Sound good to us.
Intertwit Tasting Notes:
Beer Colour: Deceptively pale.
Strength: Strong. Careful now. Wear elbow and knee pads.
Best time to drink it: After a few standard strength ales, get 3 halves of this down you.
If you must eat food with this: Scotch eggs and/or apple pie
Overall Rating: 8.2 (out of 10).
