#CraftBeerHour

Thanks to James @gammonbaron for the use of this image

On Tuesday 13 June, Martin & Steve will be bringing Hopinions to #CraftBeerHour. The theme of the evening will be ‘Supermarket Sweep’ so we’re encouraging everyone to go to your local supermarket* of choosing and grab whichever beers take your fancy and then drink along with us while getting involved.

We’ll be running live #Hopinions polls during the evening for you to get involved in and if that wasn’t enough, we’re going to be recording the whole thing and releasing it as that week’s podcast.

 

*We’re not advocating to only ever buy from supermarkets folks, make sure to support your local independent and online beer emporiums too. To help with that, we’ve discounts with a number of online suppliers that you can use to make your future #CraftBeerHour beery purchases.
