The Beer O'Clock Show

Episode 101 – Rua

 

This week we once again turn our tastebuds towards Ireland, with the latest installment of our Irish craft scene coverage.

We try Bru Brewery’s Rua along with Wayne & Janice from the Irish Beer Snob.

Despite a bout of manflu #PoorMark survives a show where we discuss Can Gate, we give our co-hosts news that they didn’t know and Wayne does a live blend.

Unable to separate them we award two winners in this week’s #prizelessprize which can be seen here & here.

Don’t forget to grab your Irish beer o’clock show box from Drinkstore so you can experience the great beers we’re sampling this season.

Episode 100 – Beer Geek Daydream

 

It’s episode 100! No, we can’t believe it either. And we celebrate by reviewing the rare Mikkeller/Siren Beer Geek Daydream white stout.

There’s some news, some messages from our listeners and a new contributor takes the coveted show 100 #prizelessprize

A huge thanks to everyone who has been a part of the show over the last 100 episodes, and has supported us – old friends and new. We wouldn’t be doing this without you!

Episode 99 – Season 6 Homebrew Special

 

It’s time again for another of our Homebrew Specials, wherein Steve and Mark are both schooled in the arts of homebrew chemistry, while also getting to taste some frankly amazing beers.

We’re joined by Steve Dawson from Learn to Brew UK, David Bishop and Chris Russell.

There’s a return to form in the #prizelessprize and we start getting excited about the live broadcast of the impending 100th show.

Wee Beastie 02 – Bitter & Twisted / Thistley Cross Cider

 

We’re back for another instalment of our Beastie O’Clock series, with another round of special beers from our friends at Harviestoun.

This time we have 4 beers – the original Bitter & Twisted, and then 3 variations of B&T aged in Thistley Cross cider barrels with various fruits.

We also have an interview with Amy, head brewer at Harviestoun, on their approach to these beers.

Don’t forget to check out Justin Mason’s blogs on the Wee Beastie beers on Get Beer. Drink Beer.

Details for the next Wee Beastie event on 19 March can be found here.

Episode 98 – Jarl

 

This week we’re joined by one of the original British beer casters – Richard Taylor from the esteemed BeerCast. Together we review Jarl, a hoppy blond ale from Scottish brewer Fyne Ales.

We preview the next Wee Beastie tasting event from Harviestoun and look forward to the Sheffield Beer Week and our appearance at the Hop Hideout.

There’s a stunning #prizelessprize and we chat to Fergus Fitzgerald from Adnams about the booming Irish beer scene.

Plus, in case you didn’t notice, Steve got an upgrade and we’re sounding better than ever! Just one of a few changes we’ll be making to the show over the coming months.

It’s most definitely Beer O’Clock!

Episode 97 – Bo Bristle Amber

 

It’s time for another beer in our series of Irish ales, and this week we have Bo Bristle’s Amber. Joining us are Mrs Beer Snob Janice Dunn and Sarah Finney from 5 Mins of Finney.

We have a look back at our beery week including a trip to Adnams, Craft Beer Rising and the release of the Wee Beastie!

News comes from our Irish Field Office and includes details of Janice (and Wayne’s) recent appearance on Irish national radio (listen here).

There’s all the usual beery banter and not one but two #prizelessprizes.

Wee Beastie 01 – Barley Wine & Engineer’s Reserve

 

It’s Wee Beastie time! In a fun little collaboration with Harviestoun, we’re really bloody pleased to bring you a spin-off series of the Beer O’clock Show (but all still on the same feed) featuring a line of one-off beers from Harviestoun, brewed under the Wee Beastie moniker.

In this episode, we have Shaun from Harviestoun on to explain just exactly what the whole Wee Beastie thing is about, and we tuck into the first of two beers from the lineup – a barley wine, and a very special bottle-conditioned version of Old Engine Oil Engineer’s Reserve. Did we mention it’s special?

We’re also working with Justin Mason on this project to bring you his thoughts on the beers over on Get Beer. Drink Beer.

It’s Beastie O’clock!

Episode 96 – Ticketybrew Dubbel

 

This week we’re joined by beer blogger and homebrewer Connor Murphy (@likethemurphys) to review Ticketybrew’s Dubbel.

Plus there’s guest pips and Steve gets bored half way through the news.

The wee beastie approaches and there is a dubbel with the Instagram #prizelessprize
