Beer O'Clock Show

Tag: Golden Ale


For our 2017 Summer Special, Steve visited Fuller’s Brewery and spent the morning with Head Brewer, Georgina Young.

In this special episode, George shares here brewing journey with us, some background to Fullers and we get to sample ‘Oliver’s Island’, ‘Seafarers’, ‘London Pride’, ‘London Pride Unfiltered’ and ‘India Pale Ale’.

Information on the Fuller’s public tours is available here.


This visit was arranged through the Fuller’s PR team and neither the tour or the beers cost us anything. This didn’t change our views on anything and we are grateful for the hospitality shown to us by both the PR team and George.

Episode 125 – Essex Brewery Showcase

This week is something new for us as we focus on a single county in our Essex County Showcase jointly hosted by Justin Mason.

We tackle four beers that have been carefuly selected for us by Justin to highlight where the Essex Brewery scene is right now. Starting with Crouch Vale’s ‘Brewers Gold’ we then move onto Wibbler’s ‘Hop Black’ and Maldon Brewery’s ‘Xylonite’ before tackling the very special Brentwood Brewing Co’s ‘Van Kannor’.

In the news, all you need to know is that Thornbridge’s (KLAXON) ‘Halcyon’ has been voted the best beer in Europe, while the #prizelesspize this week goes to a suitably seasonal holiday themed montage.

Keep up to date with what’s going on in the Essex Brewery scene by following Beer In Essex and also make sure to read Justin’s excellent posts on the beer that is cuurretly available in his home county.

Put The Needle On The Record

When I was growing up, vinyl was a huge part of my life. I would save up my pocket money, head into London and spend ages just browsing row upon row of records in HMV in Oxford Street until I found the record that would be worthy of my money on that particular day trip. I would scour the pages of Kerrang and NME to look out for the newest, limited edition releases be it on coloured vinyl, 10″ or picture disc and I would absolutely NEED those things. While as an adult my vinyl obsession hasn’t continued, it had been replaced by a new obsession. I now scour my twitter feeds to look out for the newest, limited edition releases and launches and it was because of this that I came to find out that Signature Brew, a brewery who epitomise the music and beer connection, were launching a new range of beers in London this week.
