We were given these beers for free from the folks at St Austell but this hasn’t impacted on our thoughts of them. Many thanks also to Ginger Wildheart for giving us permission to use part of “If You Want To Live In London Town” in this week’s show.

Flavour of the Month 12 – Half Cut

For May’s Flavour of the Month with Little Leeds Beer House, we’re featuring the Magic Rock & Other Half collab ‘Half Cut’.

We also give a run down of the other beers that you may have come across this month.

If you’ve had any of the beers we mention, let us know your thoughts on Twitter.

 

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. If you’re ever in Leeds make sure to pop in, say hi and enjoy a beer in the wonderful surroundings of the Corn Exchange.

Hopinions 28 “Berkshire”

Apologies for the slight issues with the sound/background noise in this episode. We were unaware of the audible hum in the room until the edit.

We are grateful that some of the breweries gave us these beers for free to feature on the show and this did not impact on our thoughts on them.

Irish Beer Report 05 – Boundary

In the latest Irish Beer Report we enjoy a couple of beers from Boundary Brewing in Belfast.

We’ve been sent these beers for free by the folks at Boundary Brewing but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on the beers that we featured.

Hopinions on Films

We’ve teamed up with the folks from Hippo Beers to bring you a unique beer podcast experience.

Hopinions on Films will see us work our way through the latest Behemoth Box from Hippo Beers while combining this with another passion that we have – classic films from the 80’s/90’s.

Thornbridge

In this special episode, Steve & Myles Lambert are joined by The Ale Lady at Thornbridge Brewery for a tasting of ‘Lukas’, ‘Raindrops on Roses’, ‘Kipling’, ‘Am:Pm’ and ‘Mango Halcyon’ with Ben from the brewing team.

This was part of the Big Beery Night 16 auction lot that Myles & Steve won an included a tour of Thornbridge Hall and the Riverside Brewery.

Information on public tours of the Riverside Brewery are available here.

 

Although the beers and visit were part of the lot that we won, Simon and the team at Thornbridge showed us an amazing level of hospitality for which we are very grateful. None of this impacted on our thoughts of the experience, although the pint of cask Jaipur in the Riverside Bar was possibly one of the best beers ever poured.
