The Beer O'Clock Show

Hopinions 00 “Pilot”

Hopinions.2Welcome to Hopinions, the new podcast from the Beer O’clock Show.

In this pilot episode, Steve & Martin get to grips with presenting a new show, play around with some sour beers and talk about the latest Hopinions.

Beer | Petrus Aged Pale, Petrus Oud Bruin & Petrus Aged Red

Hopinions | Should GBBF feature exclusively British Beer?

Blogs | Pete McKerry & Matt Chinnery

Groovy tune | Thanks to Duncan Vaughan, a musician from Sheffield for producing our new theme music. Find out more about Duncan’s work here.

 

Many thanks to the folks at Boutique Bar Brands for sending over the Petrus beers for us to try. We were gifted these beers this but that didn’t influence our thoughts. These are now available from Ales By Mail.

Episode 157 – The End of The Road

IMG_7576It’s our last ever show and we’re live from Hop Burns & Black in what was an emotional evening as we said goodbye.

Featuring two collab brews that we made – ‘Echo Peach’ our salted peach IPA with Northern Monk and ‘Starship Fleet: Wave 2’ with Elusive Brewing. We’re also joined by Andy Parker from Elusive Brewing as we try his collab in a cask vs keg tasting.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our listeners for sticking with us for the last 4 years and for engaging in all of our madness. Thank you also to all of the suppliers, shops, breweries, brewers, event organisers that we’ve worked with over the years, it truly has been our pleasure.

For one last time folks, it’s Beer O’clock!

Episode 153 – Homebrew Special #8

HB8This week it’s all about those homebrewers again! In what will now be our last ever Hombrew Special we are joined by Rob Woodland, Paul Hadfield and Rich Caller as they share their beers with us.

Rob gives us ‘Prime’ an American IPA with no bittering hops, from Paul we have single hopped saison ‘Springtime in Amarillo’ and Rich gives us ‘Dim and Peckish’, a barrel aged extra stout with added brett.

Plus we get the guys thoughts on the new Brewdog homebrew competition and there’s another #Hopinions.

Steve refuses to issue a #prizelessprize this week as he believes his picture should have won it so eventually settles on this one.

It’s Beer O’clock!

Episode 152 – Double DIPA

DIPAOnce in a while the planets align and everything comes together, this week’s show was one of those times. When we first asked Rob Derbyshire from Hopzine to come on the season his first response was “only if we do something big and hoppy”. This week Cloudwater released V4 & V4 of their DIPA series and thanks to a series of interventions and the great folk at Little Leeds Beer House, we had the beers, Mark, Steve AND Rob all in the same room at the same time.

There’s barely room for the news, #Hopinions and the #prizelessprize but we managed to squeeze them in somewhere.

It’s Beer O’Clock!
