A while ago on Oz and James Drink Britain, I saw 2 guys from a little scottish brewery drinking Ale in a park with Oz Clark and James May.  It sounded interesting, but I swiftly forgot about it.

Punk IPA

Then I went to the Southwick Brewhouse and found Brewdog’s Trashy Blonde there.  The 4.1% IPA is a great drink, but looking on their website there were a lot more that I wanted to try.  One of the things they say on their bottles is that its not mass produced or mass marketed, so I didn’t hold out much hope of finding it in a supermarket.

Then I went to Tesco and found that they had Trashy Blond in there.  The next day I went to Sainsburys, and found that they had Trashy Blond(4.1%), Punk IPA (6%) Dogma (7.8% Lavender Honey flavoured) and Hardcore IPA (9%) and Chaos Theory (7.1%), even better its on 4 for the price of 3.  Even better its much cooler than drinking Wizards Tipple or Old Speckeld Granny or whatever they are called.


So this might be my first blog into a journey of discovery of real ales.  Or alternatively I could try some of the Tokyo stout at 18% and fall over.

So why is it ‘much cooler’?

Because it isn’t brewed by people with beards and cord trousers, out of bits of mud and twigs. Also it is unlike Whistler’s Revenge that has live yeast that creates a gas in your stomach…and well, you can guess the rest.

That’s ok then, for a second I thought you might have been being a bit shallow!
