Well here's an on going list of top UK beers - of course it's down to personal taste and there's plenty not listed here that should be. At Trembling Madness we are striving to get as many of the best beers from the UK onto our shelves for you to try - there's a shortage of our favourite brewer Kernel due to demand and the production is limited whilst the expansion work is going on - hopefully May time should see a greater quantity return. Meanwhile we have a good bottled range of Magic Rock, Thornbridge, Oakham, Buxton, Brewdog and Marble who all appear in this list. Over 600 beers always in stock and always on rotation in the House Pub, we are so lucky!

It's a very special rare treat and may not been seen again for a while, okay it's a little pricey but the beer drinking experience is something that won't be forgotten.
Most Brooklyn beers are made with a blend of hop varietals. As a chef does with spices, they look to get the best qualities of each hop and create a harmony of flavours and aromas. However, a few years ago, their brewmaster ran into a hop unique enough to deserve its own moment in the sun. A large Japanese brewery first developed the hop variety “Sorachi Ace” in 1988. A cross between the British “Brewer’s Gold” and the Czech “Saaz” varieties, it exhibited a quality that was unexpected – it smelled really lemony.
The unique flavor of Sorachi Ace was bypassed by the big brewers, but Brooklyn thought it was pretty cool. So they made a special beer with it, and added the beer to their Brewmaster’s Reserve special draft beer program last year. Most Brewmaster’s Reserve beers are only available for a short time, and then they’re gone. But they liked this one so much, they decided to bring it back and give it the star treatment. Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a classic saison, a cracklingly dry, hoppy unfiltered golden farmhouse ale, but made entirely with now-rare Sorachi Ace hops grown by a single farm in Oregon. They ferment it with their own special Belgian ale strain, and then add more Sorachi Ace hops post-fermentation. After the dry-hopping, the beer emerges with a bright spicy lemongrass / lemon zest aroma backed by a wonderfully clean malt flavor.
It tastes like sunshine in a glass, and that suits us just fine, especially with seafood dishes and fresh cheeses. It’s just the thing on nice summer days and beyond.
