Brew Toon Microbrewery & Cafe Bar

With just 3 weeks to go til the Final Fling, prep for #NorthHopAbz is well underway. I wrote about what I'll be drinking at the festival, and just the other week I had the chance to pop down & check out the Brew Toon brewery ahead of their North Hop debut. 

Brew Toon launched their range of craft beers just last year, from my hometown Peterhead (also known as the "Blue Toon", get it?) I love that you can see into the working brewery when you nip into the bar for a pint, but it was even better to get behind the scenes & learn a little about the brewing & bottling process. Each beer is brewed, bottled, capped and labelled by hand on site!

I'm a bit of a regular at the microbrewery & café bar - it's dog friendly and within walking distance of my house!

Brew Toon's café space is fresh and modern, with copper tables and stylish pendant lights, it's bringing Peterhead up to date and offering something unique in the town. A diverse drinks menu features their full range of beers, with beer flights available, as well as wines, spirits, soft drinks, Eteaket teas and their own unique blend coffee.

Food is served throughout the day (the nachos are epic!) and events are proving to be popular with the locals with everything from Untapped live music to pop up street food collabs. We're big fans of the Sunday night pub quiz!  

On the day of our brewery visit, new up and coming street food vendors Smoke & Soul were in town and cooking up a storm. Slow smoked meats are Smoke & Soul's speciality and we devoured brioche buns packed with delicious pulled pork, slaw and South Carolina BBQ sauce from the Sauce Shop. A few beers later and the brisket topped mac & cheese was exactly what we needed!

L-R: Weekend Hooker, Raspberry Carronade, Northern Sinner

While I'm not a huge fan of traditional beers, Brew Toon has something for everyone. My personal favourite is the fruity Raspberry Carronade, followed by the newly launched tropical IPA known as M'ango Unchained. Gordon prefers the Northern Sinner black IPA, while my Dad enjoys a Weekend Hooker - that's a lager, guys! 

If you can't make it to the MicroBrewery & Café Bar in Peterhead you'll be pleased to hear that Brew Toon will be at this month's North Hop festival in Aberdeen! You'll have the chance to meet the brewers and sample the full line up of these awesome beers at the AECC from Friday 30th - Saturday 31st March.
