Many thanks to Hawkshead, #No1Fan Paul and Brewdog for sending us beer to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Hopinions on Films | Avengers Infinity War

If you thought we talked a lot during last year’s Avengers Assemble podcast, then strap yourselves in. We’re about to talk a whole load more! Here’s what we enjoyed during this show…

Hop Hooligans ‘Collision Course’*

Stone Berlin ‘IPA’

Brewdog ‘Declassified Demi-God’**

Vocation ‘Heart & Soul’

Roosters ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’

Brewdog ‘ Paradox Uncle Duke’s’**

Half Acre ‘Gone Away’

Northern Monk ‘Death’

 

*This was given to us by Simply Hops as part of the Underdog Brewing Competition 2019 / **These were part of the 2018 Advent Calendar that Brewdog sent to us but none of this influenced our thoughts on Avengers Infinity War being the greatest cinematic event of all time. Until Endgame that is.

 

Hopinions 80 “Flavours”

More experiments this week as Martin & Steve tuck into a load of adjunct-filled beers and try their food counterparts to see if they actually taste like the things they are supposed to taste like.

Beers | Vocation & Yeastie Boys ‘Breakfast Club’, Thornbridge & Fourpure ‘Fresa’, Wild Beer ‘Millionaire’, Tiny Rebel & Flavourly ‘Pango’ and Brewdog & Amundsen ‘Mallow Mafia’

Hopinions | Do the adjuncts added to some beers really make the beer taste like the thing that has been added?

Many thanks to Wild Beer Co and Brewdog for sending us beers to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

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.

Many thanks to Brandon from Inkling for sending us the New Era to try on this show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Who’s Punking Who?

With thanks to Matt Curtis for the use of his image

Our latest podblast features deleted content from Hopinions 37 where we were discussing Burning Sky removing their beers from Brewdog bars with Pete McKerry.

It also features a chat with Matt Curtis, who first broke the story to get the background to the decision.
