The Beer O'Clock Show

Revisited 05 – Punk IPA

 

Our original Punk IPA episode is our most notorious for many reasons. Maybe it was that we suggested Brewdog were from Edinburgh. Maybe it was our lack of appreciation for the marketing at the time. Maybe it was Mark’s Scottish accent. Maybe it was that we just weren’t ready to drink the beer.

For whatever reason, this is a beer that is well overdue a revisit and that needed doing properly. So we packed up our recording gear, headed off to Brewdog Shoreditch, bought a couple of pints of fresh Punk and gave it another go…

Episode 117 – Tastes Like Beer

Our final summer special comes to you live from Hop Burns & Black (well, recorded there at least).

In our first ever live show in front of a group of beery friends we work our way through three beers – our very own white stout ‘Tastes Like Beer’, Gipsy Hill’s ‘Beatnik’ and Gosnell’s ‘London Mead’.

We were also joined by Charlie from Gipsy Hill, Tom from Gosnell’s and Jen & Glenn from Hop Burns & Black.

Massive thanks to all of those who joined us for the evening and to Jen & Glenn for letting us take over their store and for providing us with some great technical support on the evening.

Normal service resumes on Friday 11 September when we return with season 8.

Episode 116 – UBrew

 

The second of our trio of summer specials documents our recent brewday at UBrew where we brewed our very first beer, the aptly named ‘Tastes Like Beer’.

This show looks at the brewing process from beginning to end with recorded clips from the team at UBrew.

Many thanks to the UBrew team for inviting us down to brew with them, and a special mention for Nick who took us through the process.

Look our for our third summer special to hear what we (and others) thought of our beer.

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.

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.

Episode 112 – L’Angelus

 

Notre visite des 6 nations se poursuit cette semaine avec une visite à la France et ‘L’Angelus’ de Brasserie D’ Annoeulin.

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.

We talk German style beer gardens in #HoptTopic and there’s another return to form in the #prizelessprize

All this plus we get very excited about next week’s homebrew special.

Episode 111 – Britannia’s Brew

 

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’.

Thanks to everyone for contributing to the #HopTopic discussions and for helping us top 5k followers on Twitter!

All this plus an old favourite returns to claim the biggest box of nothing in the #prizelessprize
