A shiny new brewery from Cockenzie has been sighted! Eyeball Brewing Ltd. has started off specialising in Lager style beers and we have their first two fresh off the bottling line. “Yellowball” is the pale Lager and “Blackball” is their dark Lager. Don’t be put off by the term Lager – these beers are true to the original style and are nothing like the mass produced fizz that passes for Lager these days. The emphasis is more on the Malt side of the ingredients rather than the hops although these are well hopped too. Biscuity, crisp flavours abound in both, proper lagers that have a well balanced depth of flavour about them. Give them a try – betcha won’t be disappointed!
More new beers! This time from the great City of York. From Brew York brewery we have, in no particular order: Little Eagle, Big Eagle, Viking DNA, Maris the Otter, Tonkoko, Jarsa, and, so good they named it twice, Brew York Brew York. (See what they did there? Clever!) Click on the link to go to the website for more mouth watering details on all of them and then sling one of each in your trolley – we’ve still got our sale on so you’d be silly not to really
As regular customers will know, we like to try and carve out our own niche here at AleselA. We don’t like to follow the herd. We’ve been busy since the start of the year scouring the beer landscape for the brightest and best new breweries. We’ve found quite a few and we’ve secured some very interesting new brews to bring to you over the next few weeks, so watch this space! Also, bucking the trend, we don’t do a January sale. We’re awkward and do one in February instead 😉 So our SALE STARTS TOMORROW! Running until the 28th of Feb, there’s 10% off EVERYTHING on the website except for the bucket list items (which are already reduced)
This is your chance to pick up some bargains – maybe a Cromarty Anniversary bottle or a growler of Nollaig? Everything is 10% off.
No code needed, the reduced prices wil be shown beside the items.
Fill yer boots!

Over on FaceBook we’re having a competition with a difference folks. You know how you get those “like, share & comment” competitions on FB for holidays or spa experiences etc, that are quickly populated by THE most transparently false sob stories as to why the entrant should win? Like the sob stories on X-Factor: “Torquill hasn’t had it easy since he had a blow-out in his left flip flop….” *cut to video of Torquill slowly walking in circles with a bit of a limp* Well, here at AleselA we want to positively encourage that sort of nonsense! 😀 All you have to do to WIN 12 UTTERLY DELICIOUS CANS (pictured) is LIKE, SHARE & COMMENT ON THIS POST. We want your most heart-rending, made up sob stories as to why you deserve to win. Have at it folks! 🙂
*Obviously the winner will HAVE to be 18 or over. We WILL age verify the winner through our website before awarding and despatching the prize. This competition is in no way endorsed by FaceBook. Competition closes 22nd January 2017. The results will be posted on this page once the winner has been decided, age verified and notified of their win. Good luck!

….And yet more cans, this time from Verdant Brewing Co all the way down in Falmouth. The word ‘Verdant’ means lush, green with grass or other rich vegetation. Like hops maybe? 🙂 We have two of their beers. “Light Bulb” Extra Pale Ale, 4.5%abv. As pale as a 100W light bulb but as juicy as an IPA. Session-able, quenching and totally addictive. Biscuity malt base with a hint of sweetness all drenched in fruity/dank hops. And then there’s “Headband” Pale Ale, 5.5%abv. We’ll let the brewery describe this one as we’ve never dealt with tasting notes with ‘stinky cheese’ in them before 🙂 : “Glowing orange colour. A beautifully balanced beer where the pale, crystal and Munich malts really help amplify the hops juicy qualities. Layers of flavour: tropical fruit, citrus fruit, stinky cheese, caramel – all working together. Bitter and sweet. Lush.”
So…there you go then!
