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 | Highlander

There can be only one. Or in our case a few. We’re into classic 80’s cult viewing this time as we travel through the ages with Highlander, working our way through a series of beers from the Highlands(ish).

Fallen Brewing ‘Local Motive’ & ‘Platform C’*

Innis & Gunn ‘Mangoes on the run’ & ‘Kindred Spirit’*

Brewdog ‘Mr President’

Tennent’s ‘Super’

Tullamore Dew Irish Whisky*

(Despite being pictured we sadly didn’t get round to drinking the Harviestoun)

 

*These were sent to us by Fallen Brewing and Innis & Gunn but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on them or on just how much Highlander hasn’t aged well.
