This week we’re drinking beers from Siren Craft Brew, chatting about clandestine purchases for the purpose of data mining and having fun with the monthly CAMRA letters page.

Beers | Siren ‘Yulu’, ‘White Tips’, ‘American Oak Brown’, ‘Broken Dream’ and ‘Acid Jam’

Hopinions | This week we’ve heard that ABinBev purchased a % of Ratebeer last year. What do you think?

Prizeless Prize | This cracker of a shot from Gregor J takes home the great big box of nothing this week

Links | Beer Nouveau’s Crowd Funding Campaign | Good Beer Hunting article on ABinBev’s investment into RateBeer | Mark Johnson’s post on the discussion we were denied | #CraftBeerHour Supermarket Sweep details | Dogfish Head RateBeer statement

Listener Survey | We’d really appreciate 10 minutes of your time to complete our listener survey. This will help us continue to tailor the podcast so that it’s exactly what you want to hear


We were given these beers for free from the folks at Siren Craft Brew but this hasn’t impacted on our thoughts of them.
