Looking forward to baron rating Vedett beers

A "Duvel Vedett care package" arrived some weeks ago and I've been that busy/lazy/remiss that it's only now that I'm actually writing about it (so sorry R&R Teamwork!)

Great branding & a very stylish glass!

  • Vedett Extra Blond - 5% "well-hopped pilsner" premium lager
  • Vedett Extra Ordinary IPA - 5.5% "IPA, but not really from India and not really a pale ale"
  • Vedett Extra White - 4.7% wit beer, bottle conditioned & unfiltered
Look out for 'baron ratings' of these beers soon, and a big thank you to Emanuele from R&R Teamwork for sending these through to me!

Looking forward to baron rating La Virgen ale

Spanish beer? What do I think about Spanish beer? I think I've not tried very much of it! Luckily for me BASCO got in touch with me this week asking if I'd like to try some Spanish beer and snacks - sounds like a great idea! Not only did they send a couple of bottle of La Virgen Jamonera but also a lovely looking pack of Serrano ham!


Beer and cured meats, a match made in heaven!
