Hopinions on Films | Raiders of the Lost Ark

Grab your hat and whip, get your adventuring shoes on a join us for another classic film. Beer Merchants have put together this Raiders of the Lost Ark themed box for you to drink along with us.

This time we join Indiana Jones on his first adventure as he travels around the world fighting Nazis and saving the world (and the girl). This time we chose a lottery system for the beers, but once again, feel free to enjoy them in whatever way you want as you cheer Indy on to victory.

Here’s what Beer Merchants said about why they chose these beers…

Hacker-Pschorr ‘Munchner Kellerbier’ | very German

Red Hook ‘IPA’ | Old school American

Flying Dog ‘Snake Dog IPA’ | SNAKES

Kona ‘Fire Rock’ | coz the Staff of Ra was hot

Kees ‘Barrel Project #9’ | Archived away like the ark at the end of the film

Siren ‘Liquid Mistress’ | Because Marion is epic at drinking. And kinda hot.

Lervig ‘Hazy Days’ | Just an amazing film beer

Vibrant Forest ‘Kaleidoscope’ | Amazing new British beer

 

We were sent this box for free by Beer Merchants but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on any of the beers or on just how great Raiders of the Lost Ark is.

In this bonus episode we look back at the first year of Hopinions, chat through our first Summer Summit and look forward to what’s coming next on the show.

Cheers to everyone who continues to support what we do.

Martin & Steve

 

Many thanks to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use the room to record this show

Hopinions 39 “Whales”

It’s the end of another season and we’re cracking open the big boys and chatting about those one-off beers that you might never get to drink again.

Beers | Thornbridge ‘Heather Honey Imperial Stout’, ‘Imperial Oatmeal Stout’ and Brooklyn ‘Cloaking Device’

Hopinions | Have you ever had a one off/discontinued beer that you wish you could have again?

We were sent Cloaking Device by the folks from Brooklyn but this didn’t influence on our thoughts of just how good it was. 

Hopinions 38 “ABV”

We’re back in the studio this week chatting about if the ABV of a beer impacts on your decision to buy it and drinking one of our beers of the year so far.

Beers | Time and Tide & Weird Beard collab series ‘White Cell’, ‘Call Your Friends’ and ‘Crossing Over’

Hopinions | Does the trend of high ABV modern beers influence your buying choices?

Podblasts | London Beer City | Brasserie De La Senne

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

 

The track at the end of this week’s show is ‘Call Your Friends’ by Zebrahead and was the song that inspired Drew & Bryan to use the same name for one of these beers.

Brasserie De La Senne

As this podblast is all about Belgium, Steve is nowhere to be seen.

Martin takes the helm, chatting to Yvan De Baets, the owner of Brasserie De La Senne.

 

Who’s Punking Who?

With thanks to Matt Curtis for the use of his image

Our latest podblast features deleted content from Hopinions 37 where we were discussing Burning Sky removing their beers from Brewdog bars with Pete McKerry.

It also features a chat with Matt Curtis, who first broke the story to get the background to the decision.

Hopinions 37 “Influence”

This week we’re chatting with Pete McKerry about disclosure and influence. We’re also joined by Mark Johnson on the telephone to share his views on the subject.

Beers | Jester King/The Kernel ‘Biere de Saison’, Weihenstephaner ‘Hefeweissbier’ & Brewdog/Cloudwater NE IPA V2

Hopinions | Is what you drink influenced by beer reviews?

#PrizelessPrize | Finally, the great big box of nothing comes home and is in the hands of our very own Steve with this amazing piece of photographic excellence.

Hopinions 36 “Tapping Out”

This week we question some of the attitudes of CAMRA volunteers, get deep into the news and talk about whether taprooms will ever replace pubs.

Beers | Emmanuales ‘Sister Citra’, ‘Saint Centennial’ and ‘The Monastic Order of Mosaic’

Hopinions | Are Taprooms the new pub?

We were given these beers for free by Emmanuales but this hasn’t impacted on our thoughts of them. 

Hopinions 35 “Go To”

This week we’re out on the road again, recording from The Hoop & Grapes in Farringdon and we’re joined by guest John West from the I’ll Explain Later podcast.

Beers | Whitstable Bay ‘Pale’, Shepherd Neame ‘Brilliant Ale’, ‘India Pale Ale’ & ‘Double Stout’

Hopinions | Are ‘go to’ beers a part of your drinking regime?
