This week we’re focusing on a question from one of our listeners about whether revered and rare beers live up to their hype. Thanks to Roland Glew for suggesting this topic.

Beers | Jester King ‘Enigmatic Taxa’, JW Lees ‘Harvest Ale (2015)’, Thornbridge ‘Days of Creation’, Brewdog ‘Hinterland (EFP BA version)’, Fuller’s ‘Brewers Reserve No 5’ and Old Chimneys ‘Good King Henry Special Reserve (2013)’

Hopinions | Do you care about the temperature of your beer?

 

 

Hopinions on Films | Avengers Assemble

Suit up, grab a beer and join us for one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. This time we get stuck into Marvel’s Avengers Assemble as we work our way through a selection of beers that we’ve put together for this episode.

We tried to drink the beers in the most sensible(?!?) order, potentially linking them to the film at points…

Yellowbelly ‘Citra Pale Ale’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Summer Wine ‘Diablo’ | Available from all good bottle shops/online stores

Rodenbach ‘Grand Gru’ | Available from Beer Merchants

Weird Beard ‘Collabageddon 17’ | Limited release, probably not available any more

Unity ‘Amalgamation’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Tring ‘Death or Glory’ | Available from Tring Brewery

Weird Beard/Time & Tide | Limited release, probably not available any more

Signature Brew ‘Anthology’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Carlsberg ‘Special Brew’ | Available from all good corner shops, offies and park benches

 

*These beers were sent to us for free by Honest Brew but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on them or on just how amazing Avengers Assemble and the entire Marvel Universe is.

Episode 145 – Sussex Brewery Showcase

PopAGraphPhotoSussexIn our second county showcase, we’re joined by Rachel Smith from Look At Brew to take us through the best that Sussex has to offer.

We tackle four beers selected for us by Rachel to highlight where the Sussex brewing scene is right now. Embracing modern beer packaging , we have cans from Gun Brewery with their ‘Scaramanga’ and Hastings Beer Co’s ‘Four Cees’. We also cover a modern take on a barley wine with ‘Freudian Slip’ from the Naked Beer Co and an absolute classic from Dark Star in their ‘Espresso’.

In addition to all this, we also squeeze in the news, another #hoptopic and one more big box of nothing is awarded in the #prizelessprize.

Keep up to date with what’s going on in the Sussex Brewery scene by following Look At Brew where Rachel frequently includes features from Sussex, including some incredible folklore stories!

It’s Beer O’clock!

Episode 141 – Homebrew Special #7

Homebrew 2016.1It’s that time again…

The highlight of every season, where we’re lucky enough to get to sample some amazing beers that are being produced in people’s homes. This time around we’re drinking a porter from Will Millard, a sweet brown from our first international homebrewer, Sarah Finney and finally a barley wine from Richard Harrall.

There’s also an interview with the UK’s premium homebrew supplier, Robert Neale, also know as the Malt Miller.

Plus, we just about remember to award this week’s #prizelessprize

It’s Beer O’Clock

 

Wee Beastie 01 – Barley Wine & Engineer’s Reserve

 

It’s Wee Beastie time! In a fun little collaboration with Harviestoun, we’re really bloody pleased to bring you a spin-off series of the Beer O’clock Show (but all still on the same feed) featuring a line of one-off beers from Harviestoun, brewed under the Wee Beastie moniker.

In this episode, we have Shaun from Harviestoun on to explain just exactly what the whole Wee Beastie thing is about, and we tuck into the first of two beers from the lineup – a barley wine, and a very special bottle-conditioned version of Old Engine Oil Engineer’s Reserve. Did we mention it’s special?

We’re also working with Justin Mason on this project to bring you his thoughts on the beers over on Get Beer. Drink Beer.

It’s Beastie O’clock!

The Ninth Beer of Christmas

 

Nearly there. Into the last quarter of the #12beersofxmas now and only 4 beers to go. Although there is the biggest ABV of the lot to come, the finish line is in sight. Today’s beer was sent to me MONTHS ago by Shepherd Neame. It’s an English Barleywine collaboration with Sigtuna Brygghus in Sweden that came about as a result of master brewers from the two breweries coming together at a trade show.

Still Thinking about… #12BeersofXmas

Still Thinking 1

Blog by Michael McGrorty

An excuse to drink a beer every day for twelve days? I am definitely going to take up that offer. When Steve from The Beer O’Clock Show came up with the idea for this I was a little bit skeptical. “Do I have enough ‘special’ beers to take part?”, I thought. I quickly realised that the beer didn’t matter much, all that mattered was taking part, so I put together a list and prepared myself for 12 straight days of drinking. Well, here goes…

#12BeersofXmas – A look back

coollogo_com-213273683

So the #12BeersofXmas is over and what started off as one man’s challenge to take on 12 beers during the festive period turned into a gargantuan team effort of epic proportions. We lost people along the way, some stayed with us for the duration, but I raise a glass in a toast to you all – Cheers!

I was truly blown away by the response that this idea got and the way that you all got involved, and in an effort to recognize everyone’s efforts, I have summarised the roll of honour into four categories below.
