Fantastic artwork on the can and a great name.
Little Arms Big Ambition IPA is a lovely little beer. With a fruity taste, it is a great session beer. Sitting at 5%, this can was bought at @twobrewscolchester.

When I found out that the hip Denver distillery Leopold Bros. made a natural Campari alternative, I knew I had to try it. Their aperitivo is less sweet and more bitter than Campari, and is made with real cochineal. While Campari once derived its red hue from cochineal (a crushed beetle), the company switched over to chemical coloring agents back in 2006. Leopold Bros. also keeps glycol and glycerin (ingredients which can create viscous or cloying liquors) out of its spirits, instead going for a lighter mouthfeel. You can taste the intense aromas of artemisia pontica (an herb used in the production of absinthe and vermouth), gentian root, coriander and grapefruit peels.
However, I have to say that I was rather underwhelmed by their gin.The flavors are pretty soft and subdued. It tasted like a bland diluted gin to me. Maybe their navy-strength would be more interesting, especially to stand against their aperitivo in a Negroni.
Just another Negroni
1 ½ oz Leopold Bros Gin
1 oz sweet Vermouth
¾ oz Leopold Bros Aperitivo
Expressed Orange peel
Stir with ice, strain over fresh ice in OF glass. Express orange peel over drink and drop into glass.

If there is anything we love it is a good pun.
Much Ado About Muffin, brewed by @sirencraftbrew, is a lovely little pale ale. The twist offered here is the in the ingredents. A sweet flavour put forth by the blueberry and vanilla adds a fun twist. Sitting at 5.5%, this lovely bottle was bought at @twobrewscolchester.
Do you have any reccomendations? Send us a DM and we will check it out.
