Hopinions 21 “On Trend”

This week we’re looking back at some great beers we’ve had recently and chatting about what it means for a beer to be “on trend”.

Beer | Six Degrees North/Magic Rock ‘Magic Six’, Chorlton/Vocation ‘Sour & Death’ & Lervig/Hoppin Frog ‘Sippin Into Darkness’

Hopinions | Should beers in a brewery’s core range change to stay on trend?

Blogs | Pub Curmudgeon’s ‘Love of a lifetime‘ & Matt Chinnery’s review of Stokey Beer Fest

Prizeless Prize | The big box of nothing returns to the North this week as Cowboy Drinks Craft takes the honours

 

We’re grateful to Matt at Six Degrees North for sending us ‘Magic Six’ . The fact that we were given this beer for free did not influence our thoughts on it.

Hopinions 20 “Wake Up & Smell The Coffee”

In our third crossover podcast, we’re with Roland from Steve & Roland’s Beer Podcast talking about coffee, beer, coffee and beer and coffee in beer.

Beer | Elusive Brewing/Affinity Brew Co ‘Brimful of Masha’, Põhjala Brewery ‘Must Kuld Colombia’ & Weird Beard ‘Double Pearle (Jim Beam Barrel  Aged)’

Hopinions | Coffee beers… Are they any good and what’s the best you’ve had?

Cheers | To Phil Hardy from Otter’s Tears Beer Co for providing a venue for recording this podcast

 

We are grateful to Roland and Has Bean Coffee for providing the coffees and beers for this podcast for free. This hasn’t influenced our thoughts on the coffees and beers that we featured.

 

 

Hopinions 19 “Decisions, decisions”

This week we return to our ‘second studio’ Brewdog Shoreditch to record a collab within a crossover with a guest! We’re joined by Michael Lalley of Bushcraft Beer and Stu McKinley from Yeastie Boys to discuss the things that influence our buying decisions.

Blog | Michael’s ‘Three Bullet Tuesday’ that was the catalyst for this week’s show

Beer | Brewdog ‘Small Batch 90 Shilling’

Hopinions | What most influences your beer buying decisions?

 

We’re really grateful to Brewdog Shoreditch for hosting us again and to Stu & Todd for plying us with beer all night. This may or may nor have affect our views on a number of subjects…

Hopinions 18 “Revitalisation”

This week we’re straight from a British Guild of Beer Writers event with the CAMRA Revitalisation Committee to talk about what’s next for CAMRA.

Beers | Bude Brewery ‘Haven’ amber ale, ‘Porthbud’ pale ale & ‘Black Rock’ porter

Hopinions | In today’s beer world, is CAMRA still needed?

Blogs | Myles talks FOMO, Beer Manchester considers his ‘local’ and Martin reviews ‘Around The Tube in 80 Pubs’

Prizeless Prize | The best picture ever from Steve, who finally wins his first big box of nothing

 

We’ve been sent these beers for free by the folk at Bude Brewery but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on them.
