Cocksure Brewing Co. 4 days ago

People are not born to love beer; this is something that develops over time. It’s a nurture thing.
The first experience for many will have been a sip of their dad’s beer. For us this was beer which was stored under the stairs, served warm and containing a plastic widget. Rather un-inspiring to say the least.
We used to think beer was something you drank to get drunk. Nobody ever taught us what good beer was, we had to find that out for ourselves.
We are now at a point in time where craft beer is booming with so many fantastic products available. At cocksure brewing co. We want to help this trend, buck the old status quo, so that the next generation are not brought up in a world where widgets are in cans.
Cocksure brewing co. Will challenge and disrupt the beer world. In our own style we want to make craft beer the right choice. Why can’t there be craft beer in every bar, pub, restaurant, hotel, golf club, super-market? There is no reason. It has to be learnt, the habit needs to change; people need to back themselves. Be brave and try something different… who knows you might like it.
Cocksure team.

The Canonbury Tavern 2 weeks ago

The Canonbury Tavern has been a public house since the early 1700's and boasts a rich and varied history. Having one of the best and largest pub garden spaces in the city, it has long been a destination for pub-goers and diners taking advantage of our urban oasis.

In 1846 The Canonbury Tavern was demolished and rebuilt on the same land. In the early 20th century the top floor was removed following a fire and never replaced. This is why the wonderful staircase leads to nowhere.

George Orwell, who lived in Canonbury Square, wrote part of 1984 whilst sitting under the tree in the garden in the 1940's.

In 2009, after several years of closure, the pub was close to being turned into residential accommodation before Lord Northampton decided that the building should remain a pub, as it has done for almost 300 years. Since its renovation in 2015 it has become a haven of Islington. Attracting everything from intimate Sunday roast gatherings to grand wedding parties there is a little something for everyone.

The Complete Guide to Making Mead: The Ingredients, Equipment, Processes, and Recipes for Crafting Honey Wine 3 weeks ago

Some stories suggest that mead was originally discovered when one of our not-yet-upright forebears stuck their hand in a fermenting bee hive and came away with a honeycomb containing a little more than they bargained for.

Best of all, it has something for everyone, from the stone-cold beginner to the seasoned veteran.

Readers will be treated to discussions of yeast and special ingredients, as well as what equipment is necessary and reccomended and an illustrated and detailed look at the basic process. Readers will also discover advanced techniques, such as oaking, clarifying, aging, spicing, and blending. There are even sections on developing recipes and troubleshooting problems with the brewing process.With more than 100 color photos, The Complete Guide to Making Mead includes dozens of recipes for basic meads (honey only), melomels (honey and fruit), metheglins (honey and spices), and braggots (honey and malt).
