There was much excitement Chez Towers this morning with the arrival of Darrell’s subscription craft beer.
He finally succumbed after seeing all the tantalising boxes that arrive every month at Tom the Scientists.
Now, as you know, we all very much appreciate a well shaken cocktail, but sometimes Darrell and my own good self sometimes fancy something a little hoppy of a Saturday night.
……. but as relative strangers to a craft beer, Darrell thought a subscription of said beers, chosen by others for our delectation, would broaden the horizon of our palates and save on all that time erming and ahhhing in front of the supermarket shelves.
This months choice comes from Amsterdam and promises much, Amsterdam being a very vibrant city.
Our dipping our toes into the world of craft beers will be aided, hopefully, by the “tasting notes” in the accompanying Ferment magazine, so at least we will have an idea of what to look for as we are genteelly supping, and of course, on our journey, we will obviously bring you the odd review or two.
There are also a few recipes in the aforementioned Ferment, however I don’t think anyone will be torching any sea urchins for tea at The Towers, that’s just a little too exotic, even for us and goodness knows where we would get sea urchins in Evesham anyway.
