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.

Hopinions 56 “The Dark Side”

This week, we’re joined by Mark, Ashley and Tom from the Men Beerhaving podcast to take a walk on the dark side of beer.

Beers | Beavertown ‘Black Betty’, Magic Rock ‘Dark Arts’, Guinness ‘1798’, Innis & Gunn ‘Vanishing Point 01’ and Brewdog ‘Death or Glory’

Hopinions | Dark beers | Does barrel ageing make a beer better?

Men Beerhaving Badly | Episode 20 featuring our appearance on ‘Guest Ales’ can be found here and make sure to subscribe/follow the chaps on your podcast/social media platform of choice

 

Many thanks to the folks from Innis & Gunn for sending us the Vanishing Point 01 for free, this didn’t influence our thoughts on the beer. 

Hopinions 38 “ABV”

We’re back in the studio this week chatting about if the ABV of a beer impacts on your decision to buy it and drinking one of our beers of the year so far.

Beers | Time and Tide & Weird Beard collab series ‘White Cell’, ‘Call Your Friends’ and ‘Crossing Over’

Hopinions | Does the trend of high ABV modern beers influence your buying choices?

#PrizelessPrize | Returns to the North this week with another cracker from Gammon Baron

Podblasts | London Beer City | Brasserie De La Senne

Listener Survey | We’d really appreciate 10 minutes of your time to complete our listener survey. This will help us continue to tailor the podcast so that it’s exactly what you want to hear

 

The track at the end of this week’s show is ‘Call Your Friends’ by Zebrahead and was the song that inspired Drew & Bryan to use the same name for one of these beers.

Revisited 01 – Wild Raven Black IPA

 

It’s the first in our Revisited series, where we go back to beers we reviewed way back when we started, and experience them with more seasoned taste buds.

This episode we go back to Thornbridge’s fine black IPA, Wild Raven (once called simply ‘Raven’).

The Seventh Beer of Christmas

 

Today takes us over the half way line. Six beers in, six to go as we build toward New Years Eve and the end of 2014. Tonight’s beer is an interesting one. Meantime Brewing’s Black Russian was not originally part of my #12BeersofXmas and a beer that I found in my possession due to being tagged in a competition that was entered by fellow craft wanker beer nut Greg from Twitter. You can read his blog today for the full details rather than me repeat it here.

Episode 67 – Homebrew Special #2

It’s time for another Homebrew Special – and this time we have a trio of amazing beers from Daz Oakley, Connor Murphy and Andrew Hobbs: an american pale ale, a black IPA and a chocolate orange imperial stout (yes, you read that right!).

We discuss all manner of homebrewy things with the lads, and hopefully collect some tips for all of you thinking of putting a bucket in your shed or spare wardrobe in case you’re thinking of entering the Thornbridge / Waitrose Great British Homebrew Challenge 2014 www.gbhomebrew.co.uk

We also look back at the 25 Taps of Magic, look forward to the Bermondsey Beer Mile and Summer Brew Fest plus there’s also a bonus interview with the guys from Brewdog’s latest venture, Bottledog Kings X.
