Say hello to PK IPA

Everyone loves an American IPA – it’s the poster child of the craft beer movement for good reason. But IPAs have now been so craftified (see dipas, wipas, bipas, neipas  etc etc, ad nauseum), we thought it time to remind all you lucky folks what a good, honest American IPA is, why it is the […]

Loaf & Caper

Beer has changed for the better and for good!

The South West has become a hotbed of brewing talent over recent years. From Bristol through Devon and down into the depths of Cornwall, you can now find world-class, locally brewed, contemporary beer almost anywhere.  This explosion in modern local brewing is the best thing that could have happened to us as a nation of beer lovers. We are no longer limited to boring bitters and […]

6ixes & 7evens- Dazed & Infused

This autumn we welcome an old favourite back into the Powderkeg family. “6ixes & 7evens” is a West Coast Amber ale, or at least that’s the closest recognisable description they can offer for this uniquely different beer. The name refers to the precise muddle of six malts and seven hops that go into building the […]
