2nd London Hop Shoot Festival: 17 May 2013

2nd London Hop Shoot Festival: 17 May 2013

Last year I went harvesting Hop Shoots for the first London Hop Shoot Festival and I had a brilliant time. You can read my blog post about my hop shoot picking last April on the blog post I did for Great British Chefs. This year, the weather hasn’t been kind to the intrepid hop shoots, … Continue reading

Pub #38: The Cock Tavern, Mare Street

Pub #38: The Cock Tavern, Mare Street

The newest pub on the rarely-updated 100 Pubs Project (whose page needs updating) is The Cock Tavern on Mare Street. Full disclosure: I love this damn pub. I was there on its opening night last July (in fact, I was its second customer after the marvellous Elsie) when Twee8 decided to hold its monthly meet-up … Continue reading

Christmas Cheers and Winter Beers

Christmas Cheers and Winter Beers

I might be a bit belated with this post, considering Christmas has passed and New Year’s Eve is around the corner, but ah well. It’ll still be winter in the UK for a good little while now, so here it goes. Not only have the holidays given us an excuse to eat with abandon, but … Continue reading

Brewery Spotlight: Magic Rock Brewing

Brewery Spotlight: Magic Rock Brewing

Right, here we are with a new series on Tasty Fever, the Brewery Spotlight, in which I will write about a brewery and their beer I’ve been enjoying lately. I’ve sort of already done this in the past with my post on The Kernel Brewery, but now I’ll try and make this a regular feature … Continue reading

To My Valentine’s Day Sweetheart: Beer

To My Valentine’s Day Sweetheart: Beer

After reading Wes Janisen’s amazing article, Let Vodka Be Your Valentine, on Thought Catalog, I was inspired to write my own alcoholic homage. So, a very Happy Valentine’s Day to a love I celebrate as much as I can: beer. Beer and I go way back. It’s been a subject of photographs I’ve taken since … Continue reading

Camden Town Brewery Tour

Camden Town Brewery Tour

So earlier this week I was lucky enough to be on a tour of Camden Town Brewery, a small brewery located right here in London and, due to the wonders of the Overground, is only about fifteen or twenty minutes away from where I live. Located in a handful of railway archways, Camden Town Brewery … Continue reading

Beer #6: Lagunitas Pils

I don’t often drink pilsner beers. Normally I opt for a pale ale or a wheat beer if I want something lighter, but in the name of beer sampling, I thought I’d try something that’s a little different from what I normally go for. The Lagunitas Brewing Company is out of Petaluma, California, making this … Continue reading

Beer #2: Red Brick Brown

My second beer for the 50 American Beers Project comes from the neighbouring state of Georgia. Ah, Georgia. It brought us the B-52s and was the setting for Designing Women, and the subject of a Ray Charles song. It also brings us the Red Brick Brewing Company, a brewery located in Atlanta (aka Hotlanta) that, … Continue reading

Introducing the 50 American Beers Project

Ta-da! ….dah. Since my 100 Pubs Project is on hold indefinitely until I return back to London, I am launching another project to keep me occupied while I am in the New World: The 50 American Beers Project. It’s simple enough: I’m going to try 50 different American beers, with preference towards offerings from regional … Continue reading

Brew Masters, aka I’m Watching Too Much TV

So, my arrival into the bosom of America was not only greeted by American portions and sizes, but by American television.  Shortly after taking over my parents’ guest room, a new show premiered on the Discovery Channel: Brew Masters. “I’ve got the greatest job in the world: I make beer.” Awesome. If you’ve been keeping … Continue reading
