Episode 103 – Blacks of Kinsale Black IPA

 

This week we feature another beer from our line-up of Irish craft, and we’re joined by another of our Irish friends, Sarah Finney of 5 Minutes of Finney to review the Black IPA from Blacks of Kinsale.

We talk about the most non-craft beer drinking week ever, Mark tells us how he got completely Moosefanged, the countdown begins for Unhuman Cannonball 2015 and there’s a holy theme to this week’s #prizelessprize

Steve shows his culinary skills in the new ‘Craft Baker’ segment and if you’d like to have a go at baking your own double chocolate porter brownies, the recipe can be found here (cheers Bibliocook for permission to share the recipe)

Wee Beastie 02 – Bitter & Twisted / Thistley Cross Cider

 

We’re back for another instalment of our Beastie O’Clock series, with another round of special beers from our friends at Harviestoun.

This time we have 4 beers – the original Bitter & Twisted, and then 3 variations of B&T aged in Thistley Cross cider barrels with various fruits.

We also have an interview with Amy, head brewer at Harviestoun, on their approach to these beers.

Don’t forget to check out Justin Mason’s blogs on the Wee Beastie beers on Get Beer. Drink Beer.

It’s Beastie O’clock!

Details for the next Wee Beastie event on 19 March can be found here.

Wee Beastie 01 – Barley Wine & Engineer’s Reserve

 

It’s Wee Beastie time! In a fun little collaboration with Harviestoun, we’re really bloody pleased to bring you a spin-off series of the Beer O’clock Show (but all still on the same feed) featuring a line of one-off beers from Harviestoun, brewed under the Wee Beastie moniker.

In this episode, we have Shaun from Harviestoun on to explain just exactly what the whole Wee Beastie thing is about, and we tuck into the first of two beers from the lineup – a barley wine, and a very special bottle-conditioned version of Old Engine Oil Engineer’s Reserve. Did we mention it’s special?

We’re also working with Justin Mason on this project to bring you his thoughts on the beers over on Get Beer. Drink Beer.

The UK Top 10 Ales

 

We have our first brewery to win 2 polls, running away with the votes on this one…

1. Marble Pint 3.9% ABV (bitter)
Former guest on the show and Manchester-based blogger Rowan Molyneux has this to say about the winning beer… Marble has been one of my favourite breweries since I started drinking beer, and when I moved to Manchester I was delighted to be able to drink in Marble’s own pubs. Zingy, pale and fresh, Pint is a stalwart of the Marble range. Full-bodied despite its low ABV, the grapefruit and lemon flavours sing from the glass and its clean, refreshing nature leads you towards ordering another, and another…. To drink this by anything less than, well, the pint, would be an injustice! For me, Pint is the perfect session beer.

So we got there in the end! Following the success of the UK Top 10 IPAs and then the disappointment of the ‘vote rigging’ scandal the first time we ran this poll, we now have a result in the Top 10 Lagers.

Episode 55 – The Ridge and Broken Dial

It’s a Scottish triple-header this week as not only are we joined by #1 fan, and actual Scottish person, DOODY (aka Michael), but we have TWO (count ’em!) beers from favoured Scottish brewery Harviestoun: The Ridge and Broken Dial. What do our trio of beer reviewers think?

That, plus we catch up with how the Sheffield Crawl went (someone had a belly-full of Canonball, we hear…) and more! It’s Beer O’Clock!

Golden Pints 2013

Golden Pints LogoThis is my first time with the Golden Pints – I thought it would be quite easy but when you start thinking, and I mean REALLY thinking about each of the categories, it becomes quite tough and a real challenge. So after much thought and deliberation  and more than one or two checks of Untappd, here are my entries for the Golden Pints 2013…

Episode 44 – M&S Citra IPA

It’s Beer O’Clock, and the boys are joined once again by #3 (formerly #1) fan, Stath AKA Cricket Geoff. Eh?

They drink an easy-to-get Marks & Spencers Citra IPA, and along with the usual beery chat and banter, we also have some clips from the Harviestoun  brewery tap takeover recently held in some pub in London… yes, Mark types these notes up.

Enjoy!

Episode 41 – Harvistoun Schiehallion

Mark & Steve take a trip north of the border – if only via the wonders of internet communication – to catch up with #2 Fan, DOODY, as they all taste that Scottish Craft Lager – Schiehallion by Harvistoun.

Includes bonus real Scottish accent!

Plus your usual beery news, facts, and opinions.
