Magic Rock
Magic Rock are one of the best breweries in the UK. Fact. Their Cannonball, an IPA is a special beer that some might say is the best readily available IPA produced on these shores. I waxed lyrically about the beer very recently. High Wire, their pale ale is also, you guessed it, one of the best in the UK. How would a grapefruit inspired pale fare?

A few weeks ago I visited the Beavertown Brewery for the first time and fell in love with some new beers by the brewery founded by Logan Plant. These beers were completely out of my norm for beers. When it comes to Beavertown I stay safe and stick with Gamma Ray or 8 Ball. But this time I was feeling like experiment and went with a couple of sour beers. A beer type I’m not completely sold on. Yet.

Siren
Magic RockWhat do you get when you mix three ridiculously great breweries and their three IPAs? Rule of Thirds IPA is what. A collaborative brew that spreads the breadth of the country. The idea of mixing three IPAs from three of the best brewing companies in the UK is a beautiful thing.

It is a close call between Pressure Drop and Beavertown for the best brewery in London in my opinion. However with the recent arrivals of Beavertown’s cans plus Bloody ‘Ell IPA I’m leaning towards the Tottenham based brewery.

Back in summer Beavertown, formerly based in Hackney moved to Tottenham to a larger unit to increase their output. They’ve also started distributing more cans of their beers around London and further afield. I’ve reviewed the Smog Rocket and Black Betty in can form recently on here. Let’s not forget that I called the 8 Ball Rye IPA one of the best beers ever created, or something too. So to say I’m a fan of Beavertown would be an understatement.

I’ve almost reviewed ALL of the Beavertown range now and if you care to see what I think of Gamma Ray, 8 Ball and Black Betty then tab away. If you can’t be arsed to look then let’s just say I fucking loved them (scores were 4, 5, 5). I decided to do something different with the Smog Rocket. As I mentioned in my review of Black Betty Beavertown have recently smashed their production of canned beers and now they’re everywhere.

A lot has changed since the last time I wrote about Beavertown, for one we’re in the midst of a heatwave in the UK but more importantly Beavertown have upped their craft beer game. Moving from the Hackney unit the brewery founded by Logan Plant (yes, son of Robert) to a bigger place in Tottenham Beavertown have opened up a tap room (go visit it) and rolled out their beers in cans.

Beavertown 8-Ball

Founded in 2011 in Hackney, it’s named Beavertown because centuries ago Hackney was apparently called Beavertown. I previously gave Gamma Ray a glowing review here, with an overall of 5, probably one of the highest reviews thus far. How would the Rye IPA compare? Pretty fucking well.

A relatively new brewery, Beavertown has exploded into the scene in London with some of the finest beers in the country. Founded in 2011 in Hackney, it’s named Beavertown because centuries ago Hackney was apparently called Beavertown. There are five ‘core’ beers and Gamma Ray is one of the most famous of the five.
