Below are the reviews of various homebrews that have been tried and tested! Check them out and see if any of them are worthy of being brewed by you!
Jack Porter - Head BrewerySmooth And Punchy!

We've been talking a lot with the master brewer over over Head Brewery, trying to figure out how he continues to pump out such great beers on a regular basis - with such a wide variety of styles done so well. He has been kind enough to keep us up late drinking more of his delicious brew and Jack Porter leaves us with the same impression that we got from their Janahead IPA; quality comes first - everything else will fall into place.

Byte Brewery Smoked Porter Image Where there is smoke, there is... more smoke?

We wanted to brew up a porter, and we wanted to try something smokey. Those were the two original ideas behind creating our Byte Brewery Smoked Porter. Having tasted some 'smoked' beers in the past we wanted something that would have a big hit of smokey flavor as well as all the other makings of a good porter style beer. Well, we got close...
