What’s more interesting for this all female brewery is that their beers were at one point available to buy from none other than Aldi as part of a Summer Beer Festival range back in 2015. With […]

Baltic Beer Company – Viru

My Next beer originates from Estonia and was brewed by Le Coq Brewery. The beer itself comes bottled in a pretty fancy bottle which is based on a 100 year old Imperial Russian Design, based on the medieval turrets found in Estonia.

Mittenwalder – Berg Pils

Sticking with Mittenwalder, I’m going to try something lighter and a little more on the refreshing side. Berg Pils is their take on a pilsner which clocks in at a 4.7% ABV. Through a rough translation, I was able to get this official notation on the beer. The translation however was a little flawed. This […]
