Many thanks to the folks at Lagunitas for sending us The Waldos’ Special to try for free, this didn’t influence our thoughts on the beer. Thanks also to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

Episode 152 – Double DIPA

DIPAOnce in a while the planets align and everything comes together, this week’s show was one of those times. When we first asked Rob Derbyshire from Hopzine to come on the season his first response was “only if we do something big and hoppy”. This week Cloudwater released V4 & V4 of their DIPA series and thanks to a series of interventions and the great folk at Little Leeds Beer House, we had the beers, Mark, Steve AND Rob all in the same room at the same time.

There’s barely room for the news, #Hopinions and the #prizelessprize but we managed to squeeze them in somewhere.

It’s Beer O’Clock!

Episode 122 – NZ Hopfen Weisse

 

This week we feature not one, but two beers from the Manchester-based Cloudwater Brew Co. Our feature beer is the NZ Hopfen Weisse from their Autumn range plus we also crack a US Hopfen Weisse from their Summer Range for comparison purposes. If that wasn’t enough Cloudwater for you, there’s also an epic interview with co-founder Paul Jones.

We also discuss exactly what a Hopfen Weisse is, the constant innovation of beer styles and in #HopTopic we ask what the term ‘IPA’ actually means now.

All this plus the usual news and the most epic #prizelessprize we’ll ever award.

It’s Beer O’Clock!
