Boring Brown Beer

This post was originally published in November 2013 as to support the release of our first homebrew special. As we have the author of this piece, Andrew Hobbs on our second homebrew special we thought it fitting to re-post it. It’s quite interesting when you listen to this week’s show how far Andrew has progressed since he wrote this back in November. You can check out the original post with additional contributions here.

I suppose I’ve always been interested in beer; right from the 70s when my dad used to boil wort and hops after I went to bed (it smelled awful – the taste wasn’t much better), through my teenage years exploring real ale pubs of Hampshire and West Sussex. But it was experiences travelling after sixth form and university when I began to sit up and really take notice. I’m talking about beers like Redback or Dogbolter by Maltilda Bay in Western Australia in the late 80s or tasting brews in California in the 90s that just weren’t anything like the Home Counties ale I knew. These were an entirely different drink from outfits like Sierra Nevada, Pete’s Brewing Company, Anchor from San Francisco, Redhook etc. They were much more interesting and dare I say it edgy – as if those making them had torn up the rule book. If there was one. What did I know?

Episode 67 – Homebrew Special #2

It’s time for another Homebrew Special – and this time we have a trio of amazing beers from Daz Oakley, Connor Murphy and Andrew Hobbs: an american pale ale, a black IPA and a chocolate orange imperial stout (yes, you read that right!).

We discuss all manner of homebrewy things with the lads, and hopefully collect some tips for all of you thinking of putting a bucket in your shed or spare wardrobe in case you’re thinking of entering the Thornbridge / Waitrose Great British Homebrew Challenge 2014

We also look back at the 25 Taps of Magic, look forward to the Bermondsey Beer Mile and Summer Brew Fest plus there’s also a bonus interview with the guys from Brewdog’s latest venture, Bottledog Kings X.

It’s Beer O’Clock!

Wallowing In a Month’s Worth of Ale – May 2014

While the show was off the air during May I needed to occupy my time with something. I had already planned to release a series of blogs in place of the normal Friday night show release, the only thing was, what to write about? Turns out that was easier than I expected…
