Beer Box #15August 2021
This month's box features 2 Scottish-brewed beers, and 3 other highly-rated beers, spanning a few styles. The first Scottish beer is Local Motive from Stirling-based Fallen Brewing - an easy-drinking Session IPA (3.9% ABV). Second, is Gladeye IPA from Glasgow's Drygate Brewing Co - if you're in Glasgow the Drygate Brewery is a great place for a meal and beer tasting.
Then we have 3 beers from the acclaimed Full Circle Brew Co out of Newcastle. Looper is smooth but bold and citrusy IPA made with Citra, Mosaic, and Cashmere hops coming in at 6.2% ABV. Next up is Rotator - a double dry-hopped Pale Ale with Citra and Idaho 7 hops. And finally something a bit different - Summer of '86 is a Saison (the first we've included in a Birks Beer Box) made with apricot and peach fruit puree - so expect refreshing and fruity - perfect for if we get a few more days of high-temps.

Looper by Full Circle Brew Co
Our flagship beer and core IPA, Looper is our pride and joy. Soft and juice with zesty sweet lemon and lime. Hugely drinkable. Hopped up to the eyes, bitterness takes a back seat to gentle grapefruit.

Rotator by Full Circle Brew Co
We've transformed Beta into the newest addition to our core range - Rotator. An all-day drinker, Idaho-7 and Citra combine beautifully to pack a juicy tropical and citrus punch that will have you picking a new flavour with each sip. You’ll be testing this one more than once.
