Cheshire Craft Beer Review: Wreckless from Redwillow

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Cheshire craft beer review is for Wreckless from Redwillow.

Share It!

Wreckless was a cloudy gold bitter. Yummy hoppy green herbal hops, savoury basil, cilantro, bit of chives and lemon peel, gin and tonic but not so astringent, peppery with a sweet finish.

So if you go to the Redwillow website, the proprietor is rather, in the English fashion, self-deprecating about his beer and his endeavour. He is making beer because that is what he loves to do. Not necessarily because he wants to sell you any. Or expects to sell you any simply because you visited the web page.

It is a strange message. If it were me I would want my potential customers to be as excited about my beer and my story as I am. I mean the dood has won two SIBA awards within two years of opening his brewery. That is pretty exciting.

I definitely look up beers before I try them. Not always, but sometimes it does make the difference at the bar between one beer and another. I also like looking up breweries after trying one or more of their beers to find out where they might be distributing them.

Take heart Redwillow man. Someone is reading and it can make a difference!

It was cool to see a beer from Macc on. That area has a special place in my heart. Don't know if there has been a Macc microbrew on the blog before. There have been a couple more breweries from that area recently. More than I was aware of before we were in Manchester at Easter.
