The Beer O'Clock Show

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.

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

UK Top Beer

Top Beer

10 months, 7 polls and over 3500 votes later one beer has emerged as being the UK Top Beer…

Beavertown’s ‘Gamma Ray’ wins the final poll of our series by an absolute landslide, taking around 40% of the votes cast, proving that this is indeed a beer that the craft wankers UK beer drinkers will go to again and again.

Season 6 Preview

 

We’re back on the 6th of February for an action-packed Season 6, but we both wanted to record a little something to let you all know what treats you’re in for!

Back to the Future

 

The #12BeersofXmas is over for another year and without a doubt it was a massive success. Only in it’s second year, the number of people taking part this year trebled and I really enjoyed following, watching and reading about the beers that were being enjoyed.

The Twelfth Beer of Christmas

 

Unless you’ve had your head buried in the sand during 2014, you can’t ¬†have helped to notice the incredible rise of Camden Town Brewery. 2014 was the year where they have redefined what lager is and what it can be. Alex Troncoso, Director of Brewing has appeared on the show more times than any other brewer, firstly talking about their Adnams collab ‘South Town‘, then in an interview as part of season 4’s ‘breweries of London’ series talking about Camden Hells and the brewery, and finally at the launch of the game-changing IHL. They have redefined their lager trinity and even won one of our UK Top 10 polls with Camden Hells. I could only ever finish the #12beersofxmas and 2014 with a beer by Camden Town.
