Episode 129 – Yellow Belly

image1 (3)This week we welcome Buxton Brewery head brewer Colin Stronge to the show talk to us about all things Buxton including the Yellow Belly imperial stout with us.

No news this week, just wall-to-wall chat with Colin, plus listener questions, the #prizelessprize and another Twitter-engaging #hoptopic.

All this plus an interview with beer writer and secretary of the British Guild of Beer Writers, Adrian-Tierney Jones.

Revisited 08 – Sierra Nevada Double


To finish our Revisited series, we go back to the first American beer we ever tasted and the one which we feel gave us our ‘beery revelation’, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

If that wasn’t enough, we also take on the pale’s bigger and badder brother, Torpedo IPA to see this series off in style.

It’s Beer O’clock. Revisited.

Episode 128 – Revelation


We’ve all been there. We’ve all had that moment, and this week we enjoy Dark Star Brewing’s ‘Revelation’ in cans. Plus thanks to the guys at Dark Star we’ve giving you a chance to win a six pack in #BeeryRevelations.

In the news we talk about another craft acquisition, the rainbow project, Irish beers taking over the world and some exciting activities that we’ve been up to this week.

We have an interview and some exciting news from We Can Solutions, a fairly lively #HopTopic and this week’s #prizelessprize goes down to the wire.

Episode 127 – Homebrew Special #6 (The Imperial March)


It’s time for our seasonal trip down homebrew lane as we invite 3 homebrewers from the first 3 homebrew specials

back for a slight variation on a theme. This time round, we told the guys what we wanted and laid down the groundrules… the beers had to be black, had to be impy and had to taste of oranges! So Andy Parker (homebrew special #1), Andrew Hobbs (homebrew special #2) and Ady Goodrich (homebrew special #3) return to share their big impy black orange beers with us.

We also chat about what the impending ‘hop crisis’ will mean for homebrewers and we award a suitably themed big box of nothing in the #prizelessprize

All this plus some exclusive news from Magic Rock Brewing.

Episode 126 – Organic Chocolate Stout


We go all out traditional this week with Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout – a beer that we both tried while on one of the Dragon & Flagon Pub Tours in London.

While Mark has been a little poorly (#manup / #poormark), Steve goes a little crazy and in the news we chat about brewing at home using pods, books and the exciting news of the Manchester Beer Week.

This week’s #HopTopic hits a nerve with many of you, there’s a fairly obvious #prizelessprize and a bonus interview with Magic Rock Brewing and Tap Room.
