What James Smith will be drinking at Beer InCider

Aug 31 2018

We asked James Smith, founder of The Crafty Pint, what he thinks about the Brew List, including the Exclu-Brews, at this year's Beer InCider. Here's what he had to say...

"It's getting ever harder for brewers to come up with something new these days, but it looks like plenty have given it a bloody good shot.

"As a Scot, I'm intrigued by Macleod's Irn Bru NEIPA and I've recently rediscovered my passion for Tom Yum soup so I'll be keen to give Aether's gose a try even if, like their Miso and Honey Pilsner, it sounds like all kinds of wrong!

"I've also had some great experiences of cask conditioned big IPAs in the past, where the hops are softened by the beer's innate texture, so it will be fun to see how Hawkers' nitro spin on its West Coast IPA turns out too."
