Beer O'Clock Show

Tag: Imperial Stout (page 1 of 4)

Black Friday

It’s Black Friday and in what has become an annual tradition, the annual Goose Island Bourbon County Stout is now available.

We were lucky enough to get invited to the preview tasting and Steve had a chat with Goose Island’s Shoreditch Brewpub Head Brewer Andrew Walton about this year’s release.

 

We were invited to the preview launch by Goose Island’s PR company Zeitgeist and got to try the beers for free. This hasn’t influenced our thoughts.

… and none of this influenced our thoughts on the beers or the masterful turn of Rowan Atkinson in this film

This week we take a trip to the Essex coast and visit Leigh-on-Sea Brewery

Many thanks to Ian for inviting us down to the brewery and for providing the beers for us all evening free, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

 

Hopinions 90 “Fantasy Pub Crawl”

This week we head out on a world-wide fantasy pub crawl, exploring places that we’d really like to enjoy a pint or two at.

Beers | Brew York ‘Kaijuice’, ‘Cereal Killa’, ‘Barghest’, ‘Imperial Tonkoko’, ‘Medjuicia’ and ‘Mocha Man Randy Savage’

Hopinions | Can you name your top 3 pubs/bars/taprooms that would be in your fantasy pub crawl?

 

Many thanks to Lee from Brew York for sending us beer to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Hopinions 89 “Size Matters”

This week we’re getting stuck in to some amazing beers that were sent to us by listener of the show Will Watkins. We also discuss if size matters and talk about the latest acquisitions by Beer Hawk / ZX Ventures / ABIn Bev.

Hopinions on Films | Avengers Infinity War

If you thought we talked a lot during last year’s Avengers Assemble podcast, then strap yourselves in. We’re about to talk a whole load more! Here’s what we enjoyed during this show…

Hop Hooligans ‘Collision Course’*

Stone Berlin ‘IPA’

Brewdog ‘Declassified Demi-God’**

Vocation ‘Heart & Soul’

Roosters ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’

Bond. James Bond. We take on an absolute cult classic from the 70’s with Martin taking geekery to a new level and talking facts throughout the entire film. The beers that we enjoyed for this show were…

Thornbridge / Cigar City ‘Jai Jai’

Arundel ‘Clockwork NEIPA (Mosaic & Idaho7)’

Innis & Gunn ’15 Barrel Aged DIPA’*

Brasserie Dupont ‘Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopping (2017)’

Weird Beard ‘Heavy Fuel’

Ampersand ‘Experiments in Evil (Whisky BA 2018)’

Northern Monk / Legitmate Industries ‘Raspberry & Pinot Noir Barrel Aged Quad’

 

*This was sent to us by Innis & Gunn but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on it or how much Bond’s cheesy one liners get much worse with age.

Hopinions 74 “Stout, stout, let it all out”

A slightly different show for us this week as we bring you a series of discussions that we had while we were at the Open Gate Brewery in Dublin.

First up, you’ll hear from Erin Peters, founder of Stout Day, followed by a discussion with Eibhlin Colgan from the Guinness Archives before a final conversation with Padraig Fox, Manager of the Open Gate Brewery and Jens van Stee, Brewmaster at Brouwerij Emelisse from the Netherlands.

Hopinions | Is the mobile phone an unwelcome distraction with modern day drinking culture?

Beers | Open Gate Brewery ‘Citra IPA’, Guinness & Brouwerij Timmermans ‘Lambic & Stout’, Brouwerij Emelisse ‘Barrel Finished #1’ & ‘Barrel Finished #2’

 

Our entire trip to Dublin was paid for by Diageo/Guinness/The Open Gate Brewery for which we are incredibly grateful for but this didn’t influence the content within this podcast or our thoughts on the beers discussed. The beers from Brouwerij Emelisse were also provided for free by Jens and once again did not influence our thoughts on these beers.

 

 

Hopinions 73 “Temperature”

This week we’re focusing on a question from one of our listeners about whether revered and rare beers live up to their hype. Thanks to Roland Glew for suggesting this topic.

Beers | Jester King ‘Enigmatic Taxa’, JW Lees ‘Harvest Ale (2015)’, Thornbridge ‘Days of Creation’, Brewdog ‘Hinterland (EFP BA version)’, Fuller’s ‘Brewers Reserve No 5’ and Old Chimneys ‘Good King Henry Special Reserve (2013)’

Hopinions | Do you care about the temperature of your beer?

 

 

Hopinions on Films | Avengers Assemble

Suit up, grab a beer and join us for one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. This time we get stuck into Marvel’s Avengers Assemble as we work our way through a selection of beers that we’ve put together for this episode.

We tried to drink the beers in the most sensible(?!?) order, potentially linking them to the film at points…

Yellowbelly ‘Citra Pale Ale’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Summer Wine ‘Diablo’ | Available from all good bottle shops/online stores

Rodenbach ‘Grand Gru’ | Available from Beer Merchants

Weird Beard ‘Collabageddon 17’ | Limited release, probably not available any more

Weird Beard/Time & Tide | Limited release, probably not available any more

Signature Brew ‘Anthology’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Carlsberg ‘Special Brew’ | Available from all good corner shops, offies and park benches

 

*These beers were sent to us for free by Honest Brew but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on them or on just how amazing Avengers Assemble and the entire Marvel Universe is.
