If Andechs Weiss is as good as their Dopplebock, that has to be an amazing beer. I’m also happy to see Rochefort 8, in my view one of the best trappists.

Happy new year!

I like this list a lot; If I did something like this it might help me organise my ramblings during end of year reviews. I love the Motueka IPA from Acorn, and It’s always nice to see Adnam’s Broadside getting props. Also, im quite impressed by the balance of your list – very nationwide – might sounds patronising but a lot blogs (mine included) just don’t get out of thier comfort zone a lot. Hope you had a good new year, too!

Hugo — Andechs Weiss is pretty much ordinary (good, better than Erdinger, but nothing super-special). It was definitely the best beer we had in that week, though, and we really enjoyed it.

Leigh — yeah, it has come out pretty well balanced. We try to be completely honest when deciding on beer of the week, which is why some of those on this list are far from being the best beers in the world, although there’s nothing we wouldn’t gladly drink again. And we do try to get about!
