Transforming my day from a mere Thursday into a glorious landmark occasion is this second batch from Windsor & Eton Brewery.
I've made no secret of my admiration from this mighty micro, and I stand by my prediction that this will go down in history as one of the most successful small breweries of its generation.
My previous reviews of their beers can be found here, but these latest arrivals could well outdo their stable-mates if all the considerable recent hype is true.
The beers are (from left to right...)
Conqueror 1075 - (Black IPA) 7.4% ABV
Republika - (Pilsner Lager) 4.8% ABV
Windsor Knot - ('Royal Wedding' commemorative beer) 4.5% ABV
Geographically speaking, it seems only fair that this brewery should step up to the plate with a beer to mark a certain recent royal event, but it's really those other two beers that are going to keep me up all night with excitement for the next couple of weeks or so.
Stay tuned for the reviews.
