The new kid on the block - Savour Brewery - commandeered our deliveries last Friday and championed three of their finest brews, with a Blond Ale, a Saison and a Dubbel. Only slightly older than DeskBeers itself, we believe Savour will go from beery strength to beery strength, so what better time to bring them to the masses?
Arguably the best thing to come out of Clapham Junction since JK Rowling, Sandy Kirkpatrick - Savour’s Founder & Creator - originally fell in love with brewing by drinking Belgian beer and decided to bring it back to London. Each beer a nod to this style and to the explosive learning curve Sandy went through (we’re meant to Savour every drop, geddit?) and to Belgian brewing, Savour makes for a fantastic brew.
Whilst a little far out of London (it’d probably be Zone 10,000), Paul Smith’s College in Upstate NY is offering a Minor in Craft Beer, essentially a fast-track ticket for any alumni to become a Craft Beer Wizard; an affable title no doubt. Doubtless too is the relentless search for endless listicles about great craft beer, so here’s The Londonist’s 10 Best Craft Beer Pubs; inclusive of two of our favourites: The Craft Beer Co. and The Earl of Essex.
Turning their attention away from an imminent global economic meltdown, The International Business Times decided to take a peek at "London’s Booming Craft Brewing Sector". Perfect to ease you into your Monday.
As always, thanks for being part of DeskBeers and we can’t wait to show you all what’s going to come next; needless to say we’re damn excited.
