Episode 86 – Nazionale

 

We’re back with another of our beers from our Italian selection this season with Birra Baladin’s ‘Nazionale’ in a huge-ass bottle!

In the news we look at the launch of Brewhouse & Kitchen Islington and the Coming of IHL.

We take a look at beer subscription services from Craft Rebellion, Desk Beers, Beers From Italy, Ales By Mail and Beer 52.

Plus we launch THREE Beer 52 competitions

 

Winners will be announced on the show that we’ll record on Monday 17 November and via Twitter. In addition to all this there’s this week’s amazing #PrizelessPrize, and interview with the current Beer Writer of the Year Will Hawkes AND we have our usual beery chatter!

UK Top 10 Porters/Stouts (7.4% or less)

 

This one was close, really close. In the end  only 4 votes separated the top 2 beers…

1. Kernel India Export Porter 5.9% ABV
Boak and Bailey are currently running their own series of porter tastings here and they have kindly taken some time out to write these words about the winning beer… If we had to pick a single beer to represent what has happened to London’s beer scene in the last decade, The Kernel’s Export India Porter might be the one. First brewed in 2011, and much-imitated since, it is a playful acknowledgement of the fact that hoppy dark beers didn’t arrive with the recent invention of black IPA, but back in the 19th century when porter was shipped to supply British troops in India. Brewed at various strengths and with various hops over the years, KEIP can vary widely from batch to batch — for some, a key part of its appeal. It is a beer that perhaps does more to explain what ‘craft beer’ means in the UK than any amount of wordy philosophising — bold, raw-edged, boozy, bitter, and bursting with character, as fruity hops pile up against intense roasted malt flavours. Honestly, we’re not fans, but this poll shows that a LOT of people are, and no-one could ever call it bland.

Episode 84 – Isaac

 

It’s our Indy Man Beer Con special! Featuring an exclusive interview with Jonny Heyes the founder of Indy Man plus a host of assorted bloggers help Steve review some special beers…

With all that, there’s just about room for the Indy Man themed #PrizelessPrize.

Episode 83 – Halcyon

 

The poorest-kept secret in beer podcasting… this week, the boys review Thornbridge’s Halcyon (cue HALCYON KLAXON) with guest host, beer blogger and all-round hop monster Rowan Molyneux.

Also a round up of what is going to happen at the Indy Man Beer Con (hint: carnage), the #prizelessprize and all the news.

Oh Vienna

A while back a chap by the name of Graham Nelson won a little competition run by Thornbridge and Waitrose. Graham’s ‘Vienna IPA’ (award winning) homebrew was to be brewed by Thornbridge and distributed in Waitrose.

Episode 82 – ReAle

 

It’s the second Italian beer of the season, again courtesy of the lovely blokes at Beers From Italy, this time a 6.4% American pale ale called ReAle. How will it fair when under the scrutiny of the hop-monster Steve?

To celebrate Podcast Day, we round up the best beercasts around, including 11pm Somewhere, The Irish Beer Snob and Steve & Roland’s Beer Podcast. Plus there’s some bonus footage from our little collab with the AhhGee Podcast, the previously unheard Team AhhGee vs Team Beer O’clock.

All this plus the beery news and this week’s #PrizelessPrize
