“Craft beer continues its boom and we’re seeing more and more hit the market. Eureka American Pale Ale and Proper Job IPA from Cornwall are excellent…” – June 2017

“10 best BBQ beers – we picked We picked out the most mouth-watering booze 'n' food pairings for the bibulous barbecue.

“IPAs were designed to serve under a hot Indian sun so will do a great job of helping you deal with the heat of the barbecue. The strong hop flavours and clean, malty base of modern IPAs, such as St Austell’s classic, go well with spicy food and are particularly suited to robust, fatty lamb dishes, with the bitterness helping bring out the unami flavours of the seared meat.”
