The Beer O'Clock Show

Episode 115 – Mash Tun No 1

 

Happy Birthday to us! We’re 3 years old and in the first of our summer specials for this year we celebrate our birthday with a very special beer, Shepherd Neame’s ‘Mash Tun No 1′.

If that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got serial guest Justin Mason to share the beer with us and we’ve got loads of birthday messages from our legion of fans.

There’s a very special #prizelessprize and we look forward to the other specials we’ve got coming this summer.

It’s Beery Birthday O’Clock!

If you enjoy the show please take some time to complete our listener survey and to nominate us for the UK Podcasters Awards. Cheers, Mark & Steve.

Revisited 04 – Junction

 

Once again we go back to a beer from the early days and taste it with our more refined palate.

This time, it’s the fantastic Sambrook’s Junction, a beer we loved so much the first time round that we were desperate to try again.

It’s Beer O’clock. Revisited.

Episode 114 – AB:18

We’ve reached the end of another season and our 6 nations of beer tour concludes with a beer from the Brewdog Abstrakt range, AB:18, an imperial brown ale.

We look back at the shortest season we’ve ever done and pick out our highlights. Plus there’s a bumper news segment, hop topic and a completely self-indlugent #prizelessprize

We’ll be back on 24 July with the first of three summer specials and then back with season 8 on 11 September plus they’ll be some more ‘revisited’ shows to keep you going until we return.

While we’re away you can still access the amazing discounts from our friends online and we’ll be letting you know what we’ll be drinking for season 8 very soon.

Episode 113 – Homebrew Special #5

 

It’s the highlight of the season, the homebrew special!

This time round we’re joined by what we believe to be Britain’s smallest pico-brewer Oli Watts from Watts & Co Brewing, Ben Vickers and Rich Caller who share with us their bitter, salted pineapple wit, and merlot old ale homebrewed, yes homebrewed beers!

We chat labeling in Hop Topic and there’s a first time winner in the #prizelessprize

It’s Beer O’clock!

Details on the homebrew festival that Ben mentions are available here

Revisited 03 – Duvel Double

 

We delve into our back catalogue again and pull out the first beer that we ever reviewed with a guest, the classic Duvel.

And if that wasn’t enough, we also throw in a review of this year’s Duvel Tripel Hop for good measure.

It’s Beer O’clock. Revisited.

Or… our tour of the 6 nations continues this week with a visit to France and ‘L’Angelus’ from Brasserie D’Annoeulin.

Shocking scenes as Mark loses his palate and in the news it’s all about Brewdog. For a change.

Beer-Day-Britain-LogoRaise a glass and celebrate all that is British as we toast Beer Day Britain with a beer brewed exclusively to celebrate the event, Britannia’s Brew by Brewster’s Brewery.

The brains behind Beer Day Britain and beer sommelier/evangelist Jane Peyton joins us to talk about the beer, history and why we need a Beer Day Britain.

There’s the usual news round up and in this week’s #HopTopic we discuss the recent announcement by Lidl that they will be stocking ‘craft ales’.

Episode 110 – Pamplemousse

This week we head to the green green grass of home for our next 6 nations of beer stop … Wales, where we sample the amazing Pamplemousse from the Waen Brewery.

In the news we chat about award winners, events and round up the latest beery podcasts.
