Luke Nicholas, brewer-owner at Epic Beer, tells us what's in his beer fridge this summer
What are you most looking forward to about summer?
Getting outside, eating and drinking great flavours under the sunny skies. Trying new beers with new food combinations, with great company. Summer is such a fun time to drink beer with friends outside.
What style/styles do you see yourself drinking a lot of this summer?
At the beginning of the summer I always find myself drinking Epic Lager. It is our least talked about beer, but so satisfying. It’s also one I hardly drink during winter, and then as soon as the weather warms up I can’t seem to get enough of it.
It’s the hottest day of the year and you’ve just mown the lawns. What beer would you most hope to find in your fridge?
It’s strange to most people, but around Christmas time or on the first really hot day I like drinking a cold stout. The cold, creamy, rich malt flavours are so satisfying. Then maybe a couple of lagers to follow.
