Curious Brew is a range of beers created using a combination brewing and wine-making techniques.
The beer is fantastic - and different
Haven't seen this before when it was offered to me by a good friend on a trip to see him in Kent. I've never heard someone bang on about how good something is for quite so long or so passionately. Although I don't think he's having an affair with anyone at the winery, it sounded like it! Might be the start of something, but I notice some other comments are a couple of years old. I have to say, the beer is fantastic - and different - and the story sounds pretty engaging and cool. I had heard of Chapel Down, which my friend said he might nominate when I told him about Lovemarks anyway. They have a very neat winery/shop/restaurant in Kent. Wine maker makes beer sounds credible to me. Brewer makes wine doesn't work. Why is that then? Winemakers can do pretty much anything. They need to roll this out fast!

This was just gorgeous
I had this same beer at a Chophouse Restaurant in London over the Valentines Weekend. I have to say that I was reticent because I usually hate lagers that always seem to have a 'tinny' aftertaste but I was persuaded and this was just gorgeous - really soft finish and not a metallic twang in site. Plus I noticed the bubbles were much finer as the restaurant staff mentioned and so the beer is far less gassy. Didn't know they made other beers though, I'll have to search them out!!

I've made sure that 2 more cases were ordered
First tried this beer during the Chelsea vs Barcelona game the other week to go with our obligatory pizza. Not sure exactly what the wine making technique used for the beer is, but it's a great tasting beer. I've made sure that 2 more cases were ordered off their website in time for the return. And they turned up next day!!!

Love at first sip
I'm not really into my beer that much. More of a wine guy. At a Hotel du Vin, I was encouraged to try a new beer by a ridiculously enthusiastic French barman. Love at first sip. I'd never heard of it. It seems no one else has either. But its divine. And it does what it says on the label - Curious Brew Brut. The company who make it are a wine company in deepest Kent and they do it as a sideline. I went to visit the vineyard/winery and found all the folks there passionate and just as enthusiastic as I was. There's now three different beers and I think I'm converted. Maybe the moment she becomes popular I'll cease to love her, but for now she feels like mine alone.
