Hopinions on Films

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.

Hopinions 27 “Keep It Clean”

We’re back from a few weeks off with a mammoth show  where we chat about what we got up to during our break and have a look at the latest news.

Beers | Fyne Ales ‘Nice’, ‘Naughty’, ‘Ragnarok’ and ‘Mills & Hills’

Hopinions | Following Sam Smiths ban this week, what do you think to swearing in pubs?

Prizeless Prize | Back with a first time winner with this picture from The Beer Beard Guy

Blogs | Read about Martin’s trip to Beerz in Cherbourg here

 

We were given these beers for free from the folks at Fyne Ales but this hasn’t impacted on our thoughts of them. Check out information and ticket details for Fyne Fest here.

Thornbridge

In this special episode, Steve & Myles Lambert are joined by The Ale Lady at Thornbridge Brewery for a tasting of ‘Lukas’, ‘Raindrops on Roses’, ‘Kipling’, ‘Am:Pm’ and ‘Mango Halcyon’ with Ben from the brewing team.

This was part of the Big Beery Night 16 auction lot that Myles & Steve won an included a tour of Thornbridge Hall and the Riverside Brewery.

Information on public tours of the Riverside Brewery are available here.

 

Although the beers and visit were part of the lot that we won, Simon and the team at Thornbridge showed us an amazing level of hospitality for which we are very grateful. None of this impacted on our thoughts of the experience, although the pint of cask Jaipur in the Riverside Bar was possibly one of the best beers ever poured.

Hopinions 26 “Geekery”

It’s our season finale… Martin recaps a recent trip to Coventry and Steve gets a bit angry about Brewdog. Again.

We also get our geek on and spend a LOT of time talking about Marvel & DC’s cinematic/television universes

Beer | Deya ‘Steady Rolling Man’, Burning Soul ‘Oct IPA’ & Adnams ‘Both Barrels’

Hopinions | Geekery – Is yours just limited to beer?

Prizeless Prize | A first time winner for the last big box of nothing of the season, congrats to The Ale Lady

Blogs | Good Beer Hunting looking at the Yeastie Boys contract brewing issuesMidlands Beer Blog original post about The Wolf in Birmingham & Martin’s thoughts on his trip to Coventry

Hopinions 25 “Ratings”

This week we’re chatting about using ratings to guide our choices while also dipping into the Hop City 2017 line up and asking if Brewdog’s equity scheme is really equitable.

Beer | The White Hag/Kinnegar ‘Irish Coffee Nitro Stout’, Vliegende Paard Brouwers ‘Prearis Quadrupel’ and ‘Prearis Quadrocinno’

Hopinions | Has an Untappd rating/score ever impacted on your decision to buy a beer?

Blogs | More about Brewdog’s recent investment announcement from Glynn Davis at Beer Insider

Hopinions 24 “Blown Away”

This week we’re back in the studio and chatting about beers that have blown us away. We also get around to finally reviewing the Alltech Craft Brews & Food Festival that we attended a few weeks ago.

Beers | Pirate Life ‘Throwback IPA’, ‘IPA’ & ‘IIPA’

Hopinions | When was the last time you had a beer that blew you away & what was it?

Prizeless Prize | Stewards enquiry is ongoing for this week’s winner from Sparkyrite

Blogs | Mark Johnson responds to last week’s show with a great piece of writing about his passion for the pub

Interview | We talk to Sean from Pirate Life about bringing great Australian beer to the UK

*Apologies for the slight overlap at the end of this show, some technical gremlins interfered with our normally perfect production

 

We were given these beers for free from the folks at Pirate Life but this hasn’t impacted on our views of just how great they bloodywell are.

Irish Beer Report 04 – Metalman

In the latest Irish Beer Report we enjoy a couple of beers from Metalman Brewing from Waterford

| Pale Ale American style pale ale

| Sgt. Pepper sage & pepper saison

We also look forward to where you can try some of the best Irish beer in the UK this St Patrick’s Day.

 

We’ve been sent these beers for free by the folk at Metalman Brewing but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on the beers that we featured.

 

Hopinions 23 “Choices”

This week we’re joined by guest and beer sommelier Ruth Mitchell to talk about the choices we make about drinking.

Beer | Edinburgh Beer Factory ‘Paolozzi’ & Flying Dog ‘Easy IPA’

Gin | Wayfarer & Renegade Brewery ‘Ukko’

Hopinions | With off trade sales overtaking on trade why do you choose to drink at home instead of the pub?

Prizeless Prize | For the second show in a row, Cowboy Drinks Craft takes the honours

Blogs | Connor Murphy/MCR Beer Week, Pete McKerry, Pub Curmudgeon and Boak & Bailey

Facebook | Check out our round up of our beers of February exclusively on our Facebook page

 

Many thanks to Fuller’s Counting House for providing us with a room to record this podcast. All of our beers were paid for although Ruth did provide the gin for free, but none of this influenced our thoughts.

Flavour of the Month 11 – High Planes Drifter

For March’s Flavour of the Month with Little Leeds Beer House, our listeners chose the Deya Brewing Company & Verdant Brewing Co ‘High Planes Drifter’ DIPA.

We’re joined by our first ever guest on Flavour of the Month as beer sommelier Ruth Mitchell joins us to chat about the beer and to give a run down of the other beers that you may have come across this month.

We also look forward to Hop City at Easter where you’ll be able to get your hands on some of the hoppiest beers ever assembled in one place in the UK.

If you’ve had any of the beers we mention, let us know your thoughts on Twitter.

 

This show is supported by Richard & Bryony from the Little Leeds Beer House. They’re great folk and they give us this beer for free, but that doesn’t affect our opinions the shop or the beer. If you’re ever in Leeds make sure to pop in, say hi and enjoy a beer in the wonderful surroundings of the Corn Exchange.

Hopinions 22 “10 Things You Never Knew You Wanted To Know About Beer Festivals (Part I)”

In our final crossover podcast of the series, we sit down with Wayne & Janice Dunne (AKA The Irish Beer Snobs) to talk about 10 things you never knew you wanted to know about beer festivals.

Beer | Station Works ‘The Foxes Rock IPA’

Hopinions | The best thing about beer festivals / The worst thing about beer festivals

We attended the Alltech Craft Beer & Food Fair on media passes that gave us free access to the event and some beer tokens. We were looked after incredibly well and provided access to the media lounge and rooms for recording. None of this has influenced our views on the event or beers we try and we are exceptionally grateful to Tracey & Aoife for looking after us.
