This week we’ve teamed up with Beerbods to bring you the ‘Ones to Watch 2018’ box. However, 12 beers in one night is too much for even us to get through so we drafted in some help from Justin Mason & Matt Chinnery to help us get through the box.

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.
