Episode 125 – Essex Brewery Showcase

This week is something new for us as we focus on a single county in our Essex County Showcase jointly hosted by Justin Mason.

We tackle four beers that have been carefuly selected for us by Justin to highlight where the Essex Brewery scene is right now. Starting with Crouch Vale’s ‘Brewers Gold’ we then move onto Wibbler’s ‘Hop Black’ and Maldon Brewery’s ‘Xylonite’ before tackling the very special Brentwood Brewing Co’s ‘Van Kannor’.

In the news, all you need to know is that Thornbridge’s (KLAXON) ‘Halcyon’ has been voted the best beer in Europe, while the #prizelesspize this week goes to a suitably seasonal holiday themed montage.

Keep up to date with what’s going on in the Essex Brewery scene by following Beer In Essex and also make sure to read Justin’s excellent posts on the beer that is cuurretly available in his home county.

It’s Beer O’clock!

Episode 124 – N7

This week we dive head first back into the big smoke with Hammerton Brewery’s N7 and the author of Total Ales, Matt Curtis.

We have news of our next live event ‘All Black’ to be held at Hop Burns and Black plus we discuss the recent takeover of SAB Miller by ABinBev.

The #prizelessprize goes back overseas and in #HopTopic we ask if pumpkin beers are really any good.

All this plus an interview with Lee Hammerton from, err, Hammerton Brewery!

It’s Beer O’clock!



Revisited 07 – Bengal Lancer


For this revisited we head back to a beer we tackled in one of our early shows, Fuller’s Bengal Lancer IPA.

The first time round we struggled to identify some flavours, how will we get on this time?

It’s Beer O’clock. Revisited.

Episode 123 – Snowball (and Indy Man)


This week’s show has loads of great reviews from the UK’s greatest beer gathering, Indy Man. We look back at the convention and talk to Myles Lambert, Paul Grant, Bob Maxfield, Carl Marshall, Roland Glew, Beer Farts and Claudia from Indy Man about the beers and their thoughts on the event.

Plus, we do actually review a beer this week – the chocolate, vanilla & coconut stout ‘snowball’ from The Waen Brewery.

There’s news and as you would expect, an Indy Man themed great big box of nothing in the #prizelessprize

It’s Indy Man O’clock!

Episode 122 – NZ Hopfen Weisse


This week we feature not one, but two beers from the Manchester-based Cloudwater Brew Co. Our feature beer is the NZ Hopfen Weisse from their Autumn range plus we also crack a US Hopfen Weisse from their Summer Range for comparison purposes. If that wasn’t enough Cloudwater for you, there’s also an epic interview with co-founder Paul Jones.

We also discuss exactly what a Hopfen Weisse is, the constant innovation of beer styles and in #HopTopic we ask what the term ‘IPA’ actually means now.

All this plus the usual news and the most epic #prizelessprize we’ll ever award.

Episode 121 – Espresso Stout


This week we features Manchester blogger, Twitter pest and friend of the show Connor Murphy reviewing Squawk Brewing Company’s Espresso Stout with us. Plus there’s our first interview not hosted by Steve as Connor chats to Oli from Squawk.

In the news we look back at what the #BigBeeryNight achieved, chat about reports and awards and reveal new beers, websites and discount codes.

We look forward to Indy Man with Connor and we give away another great big box of nothing in the #prizelessprize

All this plus another #HopTopic where we discuss picture tagging on Twitter.
