Many thanks to Tom from Fierce & Noble for sending us beers to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Hopinions 62 “Are We Coping?”

This week we’re in Deptford, in the Hop Stuff Brewery’s Taproom talking to owner James Yeomans about mental health in the workplace. We also got to sample a few of Hop Stuff’s beers and enjoyed a cracking pizza.

Beers | Hop Stuff ‘Pilsner’, ‘Renegade’, ‘Freudian Slip’ & ‘Woody Barrelson’

Hopinions | Should the drinks industry do more to support the mental health & wellbeing of its workers?

Many thanks to James from Hop Stuff for giving up his time to chat to us. The beers & pizza that we tried were on James but this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Hopinions 20 “Wake Up & Smell The Coffee”

In our third crossover podcast, we’re with Roland from Steve & Roland’s Beer Podcast talking about coffee, beer, coffee and beer and coffee in beer.

Beer | Elusive Brewing/Affinity Brew Co ‘Brimful of Masha’, Põhjala Brewery ‘Must Kuld Colombia’ & Weird Beard ‘Double Pearle (Jim Beam Barrel  Aged)’

Hopinions | Coffee beers… Are they any good and what’s the best you’ve had?

Cheers | To Phil Hardy from Otter’s Tears Beer Co for providing a venue for recording this podcast

 

We are grateful to Roland and Has Bean Coffee for providing the coffees and beers for this podcast for free. This hasn’t influenced our thoughts on the coffees and beers that we featured.

 

 

Hopinions 19 “Decisions, decisions”

This week we return to our ‘second studio’ Brewdog Shoreditch to record a collab within a crossover with a guest! We’re joined by Michael Lalley of Bushcraft Beer and Stu McKinley from Yeastie Boys to discuss the things that influence our buying decisions.

Hopinions | What most influences your beer buying decisions?

 

We’re really grateful to Brewdog Shoreditch for hosting us again and to Stu & Todd for plying us with beer all night. This may or may nor have affect our views on a number of subjects…

Episode 156 – Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

imageOn 26 July 2012, we released the first ever ‘Beer O’clock Show’. Almost 4 years to the date we’re now releasing our last ever ‘studio’ show.

It’s an emotional episode as Mark & Steve are joined by long-term #No1Fan Myles Lambert to reminisce about the past and to enjoy Almasty Brewing Co’s ‘Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout’.

Some big news this week, a final #Hopinions and we award the last-ever Beer O’clock Show great big boxes of nothing in the #prizelessprize and the bonus GIF #prizelessprize

It’s Beer O’clock!

 

Check out Myles post about Almasty Brewing Co here and many thanks to the folks at Almasty for providing us with the beers for this show.

Episode 154 – Summer Smiles American Wheat

Fixed WheelThis week we’re joined by more long suffering listeners as Bob & Sarah Maxfield are with us to review Fixed Wheel Brewery’s ‘Summer Smiles’ American Wheat Beer.

It’s Beer O’clock!

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!

FullSizeRenderMaking his long-overdue Beer O’clock Show appearance, the legendary Sparkyrite joins us to review two beers from Mad Dog Brewing Co. Featuring ‘It’s All Propaganda’ BIPA and ‘All Day Granola Stout’ this week’s show proves to be an experience sensation for the taste buds.

A little bit of news, the newly rebranded #Hopinions section and another #prizelessprize make up the rest of this week’s show.

It’s Beer O’clock!
