Hook Norton Brewery

Drinkers For Ukraine

Screen Shot 2022 03 22 at 11.06.46

Hook Norton Brewery has become involved in the #DrinkersForUkraine campaign to help raise funds for the Red Cross humanitarian relief efforts.

To show solidarity with them, Drinkers For Ukraine have asked breweries around the world to brew the Ukrainian Anti-Imperial Stout RESIST, developed by Ukrainian brewers.

Hook Norton Brewery are keen to support in whatever way they can and so have brewed their version of the solidarity brew – RESIST Anti Imperial Stout 6%, infused with Beetroot; a first for them! After a request for help on the Hook Norton village Facebook page, the required amount of beetroot was delivered cooked and ready to go into the brew – a real community effort. The resulting brew is now ready to go and will be available at the brewery and in selected Hook Norton pubs with money raised going directly to the Red Cross Disasters Emergency Committee.

RESIST – Anti-Imperial Stout.

A very dark beer, with a brown head tinged with pinkness. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and caramel. The taste starts with a crisp bitterness from both the hops and the roasted malts, then the earthiness from the beetroot comes through, before being displaced by the roast malt character. A long finish, with an echo of the beetroot present. At 6%, a beer to savour, and proceeds are going to the Red Cross DEC Fund.

Review: Balance Box

Saving Me from The Slump

I have to admit, I was a little reluctant to try this pre-packaged ‘ready meal’ service having had a bad experience with something similar before. Back then I ended up stuck with unappealing boxes of food and felt guilty for opting for beans on toast instead. However, Balance Box went way above and beyond my expectations, providing varied and healthy options which had me looking forward to every meal.
