E-Cigarettes and Beer: Guide to the Best Vaping and Craft Beer Pairings
If you like your blu and a beer, you can find the perfect match at this summer’s We are Beer festivals in London and Manchester.
Minty, fruity or menthol, there’s a variety of blu 2.0 flavours with a choice of strengths from 9mg/ml to 18mg/ml of nicotine. Here’s our guide to blu and beer pairings for this summer.
GOLDEN TOBACCO BLU
Needless to say, it’s going to be difficult to find a beer that doesn’t go with our popular Golden Tobacco blu, but if we had to pick the best, it would be the very intense Ola Dubh 12yr old whisky-aged craft beer (8%) by Harviestoun Brewery in Scotland.
If you prefer something a little more fruity like our Fresh Mango, try Jaipur by Thornbridge Brewery in Derbyshire, one of the best new IPAs noted for its refreshing citrus, grapefruit and tropical fruit flavours.
ALCOHOL-FREE CRAFT BEER
For an indulgent taste with none of the alcohol, try Lazer Crush by Beavertown Brewery in North London, a crisp and mild alcohol-free IPA with fruity undertones and a hint of peach, created with Azacca hops for a subtle ripe mango kick.
BLUEBERRY ICE / BERRY MIX BLU
If you enjoy our Blueberry Ice or Berry Mix, try Pride & Joy American Pale (5.3%) by Vocation Brewery in Yorkshire with its crisp, hoppy, fruity flavour reminiscent of ripe summer blueberries.
GREEN APPLE FLAVOUR BLU
Enjoy the tangy sweetness of our Green Apple with American Red (4.8%), a spicy rich ale by the Lakedown Brewing Co. in East Sussex or the crisp and dry Salcombe Pilsner (5.4%) by Salcombe Brewery Co. in Devon.
STRAWBERRY MINT / FRESH MINT /POLAR MENTHOL
For the most refreshing combinations, try pairing our Fresh Mint, Polar Menthol or Strawberry Mint with the contrasting flavours of the amazing Welsh red ale Cwtch (4.6%) by Tiny Rebel in Newport which boasts subtle malty flavours with citrus and toffee tones to leave you feeling invigorated.
