#12beersofxmas 2016

It’s that time of year again, when Steve over at The Beer O’Clock Show podcasts gets the beer drinking community together with #12beersofxmas. I’ve contributed to the last two years, updating the blog with a daily review of a beer specifically picked out for the 12 beers run, and its always coincided with my work […]

#12beersofxmas – Days 11 & 12

I’ll admit to being a bit tardy with my blog posts for this year’s series but I’ve got a legit excuse for not posting yesterday; Day 11 and 12 are a double act and so it seemed right to finish with a double post.Β The beers are Bourgogne des Flandres, Brune and Blonde from the Martin […]

#12beersofxmas – Day 10

Is it Tuesday today? Is it really Day 10 of this year’s 12 beer series? I’ve completely lost track. It’s been a fantastic run though, on a personal note I’ve tried some incredible beers (some of the best of the year for me) and I’ve really enjoyed reading what everyone else has been supping. Needless […]

#12beersofxmas – Day 9

So I’m still a day behind on blogging. Definitely getting tardy. I am a day ahead on drinking the beer though, handy, today feels like a double blog post kinda day. So yesterday’s beer was Heavy Water from Beavertown, a brewery who are pretty much a benchmark for me in terms of quality and style […]

#12beersofxmas – Day 8

I’m a day behind with my my posts, I’m getting tardy, it’s all this endless food and beer making me sluggish! I did drink an exceptional beer yesterday though and whilst I was hosting a dinner for the fam, I thought I’d save the blogging for today. Dinner was a homemade lentil, chickpea and sweet […]

#12beersofxmas – Days 5, 6 & 7

Triple hit this time around as I fell off of the bog post radar over the past three days, but as Nirvana say; nevermind. These three beers are all mighty, beautiful and inspired and so I think they’ll sit together well on this page. Christmas Eve Dark Island Reserve from Orkney Brewery, a Limited Edition […]

#12beersofxmas – Day 4

I’ve spent the day cooking, baking, cleaning, wrapping and cursing. I stole a few moments under a bright blue sky for lunch, surrounded by bird song and accompanied by some Japanese Pale Ale from Niigata, but that lunch break was it for the day’s serenity…until now. The canned Niigata would’ve made a great addition to […]

#12beersofxmas – Day 3

It’s officially Midwinter today, the marking of the shortest day, looking ahead to the renewed light and the hopes of what a new year will bring whilst looking back on the days that have passed. It’s been my second full year of blogging as ‘Look at Brew’ and it has been filled with many beer […]

#12beersofxmas – Day 2

I figured a suitably seasonal brew should be acquired for this 12 bottle run, so with that in mind I chucked a bottle of Santa’s Private Reserve by Rogue in my basket. After a day of sprucing up the house and faffing about making decorations out of pine cones, twine and soddingΒ delightful little jingle bells, […]
