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.
