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!

Plus, there’s a special announcement from the guys which you can read more about here.

It’s Flavour of the Month!

The End of the Road

When we started the Beer O’clock Show in 2012 the ambition was for Steve to take Mark on a journey through beer.

150+ main shows, spin offs & minisodes later, we’ve achieved the original aim. Golden ales, lagers, bitters, stouts, powl owls, sours, saisons and of course, IPAs have all fallen in our wake as we’ve continued on our beery journey.
