Here we go then, my Golden Pints for 2017…
It’s that time of year again folks. Time to dig into the back of the
cupboard cellar to see what wonders you have to enjoy over the festive period.
This year we’re bring the Crimbo Crawl to Sheffield on Saturday 2 December.
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.
We’ve teamed up with the folks from Hippo Beers to bring you a unique beer podcast experience.
Hopinions on Films will see us work our way through the latest Behemoth Box from Hippo Beers while combining this with another passion that we have – classic films from the 80’s/90’s.
First up will be May’s Behemoth Box matched with Back to The Future. Thanks to the folks at Hippo Beers you’ll be able to buy the same box and drink/watch along with us, just click here and use the code ‘BEEROCLOCK’ at checkout.
The first Hopinions on Films will be released on Thursday 1 June
Due to licensing issues we won’t be streaming the audio from the film, this will be playing in the back ground while we enjoy and chat about the beers and the film.
A while back, I made the decision that I wanted our content to be ‘exclusively audio’, after all as a podcast, that’s what we’re most known for. There are many good writers and bloggers out there and me adding to that didn’t seem necessary, not when we already had an outlet for communicating. So this year, we made our Golden Pints awards across the last three Hopinions shows of the year.
New from the Beer O’clock Show is Hopinions, our new fortnightly podcast that will be launching on 2 September.
When we started the Beer O’clock Show in 2012 the ambition was for Steve to take Mark on a journey through beer.
150+ main shows, spin offs & minisodes later, we’ve achieved the original aim. Golden ales, lagers, bitters, stouts, powl owls, sours, saisons and of course, IPAs have all fallen in our wake as we’ve continued on our beery journey.
