We recently came across Tyne Bank Brewery, a Newcastle-based brewery that produces a range of unique beers including everything from a selection of pale ales to a lager and a milk stout. The brewery brews an impressive 20,000 pints a week, which brewers work 12 hours a day to produce. Visitors have the opportunity to go on a tour of the brewery and enjoy tasting sessions every weekend.
If your flavour preference leans towards seriously fruity ciders, then the flavours within this range may be too subtle for your liking, but if you're looking for an interesting new beer that deviates from the usual offerings you can find anywhere, then it's worth giving it a whirl. With the Bank Holiday in full swing, now's the perfect opportunity to try something new.
A selection of beers within the range can be found at Booths supermarkets across the Northwest of England.
We're a big fan of condiments as they have the power to liven up a variety of dishes quickly and easily. So, we were excited to hear about the launch of The Sweet Beet, a range of innovative condiments that are certain to jazz up your recipes! Founded by Lizzy Hodcroft, a Texas-raised chef turned restaurant manager and now food entrepreneur, the range takes its inspiration from the bold flavours of Texan cuisine.
The range includes five scrumptious variants including Texas Beer Jelly, Oak Smoaked Apple Butter, Maple Bacon Jam, Strawberry Chipotle BBQ and our personal favourite, Habanero Lime Jelly (a bit like sweet chilli sauce but thicker) and it tastes amazing on baked salmon, fresh tuna tacos or burgers. The clever cats at The Sweet Beet have even developed a Texas Beer Jelly Margarita, which we can't wait to try during the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend!
The Sweet Beet is available www.thesweetbeet.co.uk (RRP £4.50-£4.95).
