I was recently down in Cornwall and along with my US beer blogging sister Suzanna we made our way through some local beers. These include some small brewers such as Wooden Hand, Harbour Brewing and Keltek Brewery, plus a look at arguably three of the most famous best bitters from the Duchy, St Austell’s Tribute, Sharp’s Doom Bar and Skinners’ Betty Stogs, which are available across the whole country. Apologies to Penpont and Tintagel Brewery – my video review of your beers didn’t make the final cut due to sound issues. I’ll return to them in a follow up video when I’m next down.
The common theme of the beers we feature is that they are all highly sessionable ales with a copper malty colour and malt-based flavour. Fans of St Austell should check out our marathon St Austell beer tasting session video, where we cover pretty much the whole range.
I’d love to hear your suggestions on which Cornish beers you recommend.Tweet
