[Review] Wallbanger

Details Country: UK Brewer: Pressure Drop Style: Witbier ABV: 4.7% Volume: 330ml Price: £2.39 (from Honest Brew) Pressure Drop are one of the best craft breweries in the UK and have recently relocated from Hackney to Tottenham.

[Review] Black Perle

Details Country: UK Brewer: Weird Beard Style: Coffee Milk Stout ABV: 3.8% Volume: 330ml Price: £2.79 (from Beer Hawk) I’ve already reviewed a Coffee-based beer from Weird Beard earlier this week and, while perfectly drinkable, didn’t really set my beer-drinking world on fire.
