Sophie Atherton / News / Thu 22nd Sep 2011 Vote for Devon beer
There is more than one brewery in Devon - nearer 30 in fact - but one not too far from Torbay is competing in the Sainsbury's Great British Beer Hunt. You have till 27th Sept to give your support to Hunter's Brewery in Ipplepen by trying out their very strong Full Bore ale and giving it a fighting chance in the grand final.
My latest blog post* explains all about the Great British Beer Hunt and some of the beers I'd tried so far - but exclusively on Creative Torbay I will share my thoughts on Full Bore.
If you like strong, Belgian style ales this could be one for you. Just be aware that it's 8% though. It is flavoured with honey and golden syrup, which you can smell as you drink, but although these lend a sweet flavour to the ale it isn't overpowering and is balanced by a nice, dry finish. Nice beer, but not for the faint hearted.
