Keeping it real … Real Ale
Tiny Rebel are one of my favourite brewers and have been since I was instantly blown up by a hop bomb when I knocked back my first sip of Hadouken. It was my first introduction to the new wave of brewing. Since then I have worked my way through their range of beers, bought a few T-Shirts, made the trip to Newport to pick up some bottles from the brewery and sunk a few pints of Cwtch at their pub the Urban Taphouse in Cardiff. It is safe to say I am a huge fan, which is why I am really excited to take part in the latest #BeeryBits Twitter tasting.
Those who have not taken part in any of the #BeeryBits Twitter tastings before the basic set up is that at 8pm Ales By Mail, Charlie from The Crafty Beeress, myself and the whole gang who are taking part using the hashtag will drink, review and chat about certain beers on Twitter for an hour. Usually the brewery will check in as well to chat with those drinking the beers. You can buy your Tiny Rebel beers from Ales By Mail, the two bottles we are going to be enjoying are Cwtch and Cali American Pale Ale.
Cwtch came close to being my 2015 cask beer of the year, it rightly so won Champion Beer of Britain at the Great British Beer Festival last summer. I have no doubt that it will go down well on the evening too. I haven’t tried the Cali American Pale Ale yet so I am really looking forward to sharing that moment with everyone involved.
I’m really excited to be also hosting it with the lovely Charlie Rosina aka The Crafty Beeress and if you haven’t already you should go check out her blog here. Remember to use the hashtag #BeeryBits on the evening and come join us for two great beers.
