… and none of this influenced our thoughts on the beers or The Lost Boys being an absolute cult classic

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 85 “Art”

This week, we’re joined by Beavertown’s Creative Director Nick Dwyer to talk all things art and beer.

Beer | Beavertown ‘Gamma Ray’, ‘Bloody ‘Ell’, ‘Brett Pils’ and ‘Heavy Lord’, Left Handed Giant/Duration ‘Minority Stake’, Northern Monk ‘Patrons 1.01’, Magic Rock/Bagby ‘Californishire’ and Wander Beyond ‘Nautiloid’

Hopinions | Does artwork influence your purchasing / rating of beer?

Belgium | Poechenellekelder | Oldest Pub in Bruges – Vlissinghe

Tate | Events can be found here

 

Many thanks to Nick for giving up his time record with us, the Beavertown beers we had on this show were free but this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Hopinions 84 “Innovation vs Core”

We’re back from a mini-break and diving straight into some delicious beers

Beers | Sean O’Reilly / Uncruliar Brews ‘Sean’s Dark Ruby Mild’ and ‘Not So Pale Fire’, Unbarred ‘Mango Pale’, ‘Honeycomb Milkshake Pale’ and ‘Tropic Soda’ and Lagunitas ‘The Waldos Special Ale’

Hopinions | Is constant innovation of beer styles/flavours essential to the survival of breweries or is it a solid core range?

Many thanks to Sean (@uncruliar), Brett from Unbarred and Tom from Lagunitas for sending us beer to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

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’

Brewdog ‘ Paradox Uncle Duke’s’**

Half Acre ‘Gone Away’

Northern Monk ‘Death’

 

*This was given to us by Simply Hops as part of the Underdog Brewing Competition 2019 / **These were part of the 2018 Advent Calendar that Brewdog sent to us but none of this influenced our thoughts on Avengers Infinity War being the greatest cinematic event of all time. Until Endgame that is.

 

Hopinions 81 “Perfect”

This week we’re joined by author and comedian James Dowdeswell to talk about growing up in a pub, great bar service and writing a book.

Beers | Fierce & Noble ‘Session IPA’, ‘APA’ & ‘West Coast IPA’

Hopinions | You’re faced with unknowledgable bar staff. Do you…? | What’s the most important skill for bar staff?

Hopinions 80 “Flavours”

More experiments this week as Martin & Steve tuck into a load of adjunct-filled beers and try their food counterparts to see if they actually taste like the things they are supposed to taste like.

Beers | Vocation & Yeastie Boys ‘Breakfast Club’, Thornbridge & Fourpure ‘Fresa’, Wild Beer ‘Millionaire’, Tiny Rebel & Flavourly ‘Pango’ and Brewdog & Amundsen ‘Mallow Mafia’

Hopinions | Do the adjuncts added to some beers really make the beer taste like the thing that has been added?

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 70 “Marmite”

We’re back from our summer break and celebrating our 2nd birthday as we tuck into a numbers of beers that we’ve been gifted over the summer.

Beers | Northern Monk ‘Don’t Mess With Yorkshire IPA’, Sixpoint ‘Alpenflo’, Budvar ‘Dark Lager’, Wild Beer ‘Sleeping Limes’, Saltaire Brewing ‘Polairty’, Manual Brew Co ‘Tickets, Please’ and Sixpoint ‘Righteous Ale’

Hopinions | A guest hopinions this week from Myles Lambert – What’s your marmite beer?

 

Many thanks to James @gammonbaron, Heathwick UK, Budvar, Wild Beer, Saltaire and Manual Brew Co for sending us beers to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.
