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

Unity ‘Amalgamation’ | Available from Honest Brew*

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.

Hopinions on Films | Raiders of the Lost Ark

Grab your hat and whip, get your adventuring shoes on a join us for another classic film. Beer Merchants have put together this Raiders of the Lost Ark themed box for you to drink along with us.

This time we join Indiana Jones on his first adventure as he travels around the world fighting Nazis and saving the world (and the girl). This time we chose a lottery system for the beers, but once again, feel free to enjoy them in whatever way you want as you cheer Indy on to victory.

Here’s what Beer Merchants said about why they chose these beers…

Hacker-Pschorr ‘Munchner Kellerbier’ | very German

Red Hook ‘IPA’ | Old school American

Flying Dog ‘Snake Dog IPA’ | SNAKES

Kona ‘Fire Rock’ | coz the Staff of Ra was hot

Kees ‘Barrel Project #9’ | Archived away like the ark at the end of the film

Siren ‘Liquid Mistress’ | Because Marion is epic at drinking. And kinda hot.

Lervig ‘Hazy Days’ | Just an amazing film beer

Vibrant Forest ‘Kaleidoscope’ | Amazing new British beer

 

We were sent this box for free by Beer Merchants but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on any of the beers or on just how great Raiders of the Lost Ark is.
