It’s the Beer O’Clock Show’s second birthday, and what a beer to celebrate with – Harvistoun’s Orach Slie. See what the lads think of a beer they’ve been holding on to for months just for this show.

Thanks to everyone for their support over the last two years – here’s to a couple more, eh?

It’s Beer O’Clock!

It’s Beer O’Clock!

This is a little bit cheeky. The Beer O’Clock Show were approached by Natural Brewing to ask if we wanted to be part of a Twitter tasting of their latest beer. Always happy to accommodate this sort of request, I said ‘yes’ only to be told that the tasting would be on a Monday evening. Regular followers will know why this is a problem. Therefore, in a beer sleight of hand, I’ve already drunk and reviewed the beer and am now posting this blog and the appropriate Twitter-time.

PrintIn anticipation of the arrival of new stock, our friends at Ales By Mail held a tasting event at their Craft Beer Shop to preview some of the beers that are incoming from new suppliers in the US. Chatting to the owner Paul before the serious drinking started he explained that “we have someone working on our behalf in California who, over the last few months has sourced some amazing US beers and arranged for their export into the UK for the first time”.

Refrigerated from brewery collection then from warehousing to container and then into the UK, this beer is FRESH. It arrived by road the day before being offered to the awaiting thirsty punters as a preview of things to come when the full shipment is launched in September.
