Flavour of the Month 07 – Lupuloid IPA

lupuloidHe’s back! Mark returns to the airwaves to bring you the latest Flavour of the Month from Little Leeds Beer House.

This month we’re drinking the beer that everyone is talking about, the latest addition to Beavertown’s core range, ‘Lupuloid IPA’

 

This show is supported by Richard & Bryony from the Little Leeds Beer House. They’re great folk and they give us this beer for free, but that doesn’t affect our opinions the shop or the beer.
