Good afternoon, L’Ders! What a fantastic weekend it was with the celebration of two kindred souls unifying to become one and Chelsea winning the FA Cup (I’m still bitter that Arsenal couldn’t even reach the 4th round, let alone, reach the final).
Anyway, enough about me and my woes for my team, I have got some good news for you eager readers!
I am pleased to announce the arrival of two new beverages: We Made Drinks Still Lemonade Stevia; Raspberry and Lemon Stevia, and a craft lager (3% ABV) brewed by Genius Brewing. So before summer officially begins, why not check these two out - or everything else if you have the time to browse - and see which one could be perfect for you to keep cool under the blazing sun.
Now for my choice of drink, I have picked another one - and their newest - from Big Drop Brewing Co. called Sour.
The ingredients used are: Water, Barley, Lactose, Wheat, Hops, Acidity Regulators (lactic acid, citric acid, tartaric acid) & Yeast. This has an alcohol content of 0.5% which makes this beverage a non-alcoholic beer.
This beer comes in a 330ml bottle with a beautiful illustration of the Saxstead Mill in Suffolk, coloured in an array of soft purples, pinks and greens (credit to Helen Mayfield for the illustration).
As you pour this beer in a glass, you get a citric aroma that wafts upwards, teasing and delighting the nostrils of, what could well be, your first ever sour beer (well for me it’s mine).
Its got a pale yellow complexion, a continuous flow of carbonation that whizzes up the side of the glass and a light, white frothy head. The body on this beer is light, very crisp and has a wheaty taste with a subtle sour finish.
This is the perfect drink for those hot summer days that we long for (fingers crossed they do come!) and should definitely be served chilled to fully experience this great non-alcoholic beer.
