Apologies for the slight issues with the sound/background noise in this episode. We were unaware of the audible hum in the room until the edit.

We are grateful that some of the breweries gave us these beers for free to feature on the show and this did not impact on our thoughts on them.

Featuring two collab brews that we made – ‘Echo Peach’ our salted peach IPA with Northern Monk and ‘Starship Fleet: Wave 2’ with Elusive Brewing. We’re also joined by Andy Parker from Elusive Brewing as we try his collab in a cask vs keg tasting.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our listeners for sticking with us for the last 4 years and for engaging in all of our madness. Thank you also to all of the suppliers, shops, breweries, brewers, event organisers that we’ve worked with over the years, it truly has been our pleasure.

For one last time folks, it’s Beer O’clock!
