Welcome to the Drink in the Sights best beer of March 2021 award page. Hopefully when we all look back on March 2021 in a few years time it'll be viewed as our last ever full month in lockdown and for me it's been a month of some very good beers. Before I start I want to give a special mention to Original Stormtrooper's S.N.I.P.A (Situation Normal Indian Pale Ale) which is perhaps the single most vile beer I've ever drank. If you see it run away, and run away fast. Despite that March has been a good month for beers as I've tried selections from Tiny Rebel Brewery, B&M, Home Bargains and the local Lincolnshire Co-op as well as a Flavourly delivery. There's been a good mixture and plenty to choose from.
That's right March's runner up is Newport's favourite sons Tiny Rebel's Stay Puft Imperial Eggnog Marshmallow White Porter. Clocking in at 9% alcohol this bizarre beer is as potent as it is crazy and unique. From the thick yellow cloudy body to the creamy aroma this beer is nothing like any porter you'll have had before. Sure it really just appeals to my sweet tooth and sense of whimsy, but what's wrong with that? I'd best describe this beer as a pint of White Russian, honestly the texture is so thick and creamy you can feel it roll down your throat and the taste is truly exceptional. Tiny Rebel say they have one rule 'we don't make vanilla ice cream' and Stay Puft Imperial Eggnog White Porter well and truly lives up to that moto.
The March 2021 Drink in the Sights Beer of the Month is Lincolnshire Craft Beers Bomber County
That's right the winner is the truly exceptional Bomber County from Lincolnshire Craft Beers. Previously known as Tom Woods Brewery Lincolnshire Craft Beers have been brewing away in my home county for about 20 years now and this is in my humble opinion their best offering. Clocking in at 4.8% alcohol this beer has none of the quirky randomness of the runner up, but it's a proper beer. The thick headed, full bodied dark red offering really looks the part while the aroma of fruity hops and roasted malts are enough to lure any classic beer drinker in.
When it comes to deep red ales you wont find many better than Bomber County with its proper smoky bitterness which is perfectly balanced by the rich fruit flavours, and as a bit of a treat there's just a hint of caramel that comes through later to help out those of us with a sweet tooth. Genuinely this is a seriously good beer and I have no problem crowning it the Drink in the Sights Beer of the Month for March 2021.
