Many thanks to the folks from Honest Brew, Ireland Craft Beers, Cheshire Brewhouse and Fyne Ales for sending us these beers to try for free, this didn’t influence our thoughts on the beers. Thanks also to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

Back in October Steve visited Stone Brewing Berlin for the day and between pouring IPAs into his face all day long, he sat down with Stone Berlin’s Master Brewer, Thomas Tyrell for a quick chat.

Thank You | To all of our listeners that continue to support what we do. Merry Christmas!

 

Many thanks the folks from Goose Island for giving us the bottle of Bourbon County, this didn’t influence our thoughts on the beer. Thanks also to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

Hopinions on Films | Die Hard

Buckle up, don’t forget your shoes and join us for another classic film. This time we get stuck into the ultimate Christmas movie, Die Hard, with this box of specially selected beer from Beer Merchants which you can order to drink along with us.

We chose what we thought was the best order for the beers, but as always, feel free to enjoy them in whatever way you want as we join John McClane in defeating Hans & his gang.

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

Lost & Grounded ‘Hop-hand Fallacy’ |  Hans Gruber innit

Augustiner ‘Helles’ | Why are the baddies always German?

Tiny Rebel ‘Fubar’ | Has a grenade on it

Northern Monk  ‘Eternal Darkness’ | (spoiler alert) What Hans falls into

Gipsy Hill ‘Superfan’ | The lager that McClane (and anyone that actually listens to this) deserves

Siren ‘Kentucky Tickler’ | Yippee KIPA mother fucker

 

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 Die Hard is.

In this post-Crimbo Crawl episode we try to cover everything from the busiest week of news as well as take a look back at our day out in Sheffield.

No beers to talk about, no polls to cover, just three blokes chatting in a pub…

#12BeersofXmas 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.

Hopinions 51 “In The Game”

This week we’re rocked by the fact that we recorded a show under a hour!

Beers | Wild Weather Ales ‘First Person Fruiter’, ‘Peach of a Weekend’, ‘Breakfast at Sciliy’s’ and ‘Skadoosh’

Hopinions | In the modern UK beer market do breweries need their beers in cans to stay in the game?

Many thanks the folks from Wild Weather Ales for sending over a selection of beers for us to try for free. This didn’t influence our thoughts on the beer. Thanks also to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

Hopinions 50 “Friends”

This week we dive into the Fullers & Friends box of beers, get stuck into loads of news and take a look back at our first 50 shows.

Hopinions | As it’s that time of year where we find ourselves in venues not serving drinks of our choosing, what do you drink when there’s no decent beer on?
