Flavour of the Month 12 – Half Cut

For May’s Flavour of the Month with Little Leeds Beer House, we’re featuring the Magic Rock & Other Half collab ‘Half Cut’.

We also give a run down of the other beers that you may have come across this month.

If you’ve had any of the beers we mention, let us know your thoughts on Twitter.

 

This show is supported by Richard & Bryony from the Little Leeds Beer House. They’re great folk and they give us this beer for free, but that doesn’t affect our opinions the shop or the beer. If you’re ever in Leeds make sure to pop in, say hi and enjoy a beer in the wonderful surroundings of the Corn Exchange.

Hopinions 21 “On Trend”

This week we’re looking back at some great beers we’ve had recently and chatting about what it means for a beer to be “on trend”.

Beer | Six Degrees North/Magic Rock ‘Magic Six’, Chorlton/Vocation ‘Sour & Death’ & Lervig/Hoppin Frog ‘Sippin Into Darkness’

Hopinions | Should beers in a brewery’s core range change to stay on trend?

Blogs | Pub Curmudgeon’s ‘Love of a lifetime‘ & Matt Chinnery’s review of Stokey Beer Fest

Prizeless Prize | The big box of nothing returns to the North this week as Cowboy Drinks Craft takes the honours

 

We’re grateful to Matt at Six Degrees North for sending us ‘Magic Six’ . The fact that we were given this beer for free did not influence our thoughts on it.

Revisited 09 – Un-Human Cannonball

IMG_6815Only one beer could resurrect the revisited series and it had to be something Unhuman…

We go back to one of our most memorable beers from the early days as we enjoy the 2016 release of Magic Rock’s Un-human Cannonball TIPA.

It’s Beer O’clock. Revisited.

Minisode 02 – It’s A Kind Of Magic

image2This had to happen one day.  But it needed it’s own space, it’s own show, it simply couldn’t be part of a normal season…

In this one-off special we take a taste of Magic Rock Brewing‘s recent High Wire canned released and also Steve’s all time favourite beer, Cannonball.

It’s a kind of magic!

Beer Nation 2015

Beer NationBeer Nation brings together the UK beer podcasting community for a collaboration broadcast and takes a look at the state of the beer nation in 2015.

Hosted by our very own Mark and Sophie from The Beertalkers, we also welcome to the table Roland from Steve & Roland’s Beer Podcast, Daniel from the Original Gravity podcast, Sam from The Beertalkers and Steve from the Beer O’clock Show.

In this special show we look back at the highs and lows of the beer nation over the past 12 months and discuss our favourite beers, breweries and events.

For good measure, we also manage to squeeze in a cheeky little review of Magic Rock’s ‘Salty Kiss’.

It’s Beer (Nation) O’clock!

Episode 126 – Organic Chocolate Stout

 

We go all out traditional this week with Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout – a beer that we both tried while on one of the Dragon & Flagon Pub Tours in London.

While Mark has been a little poorly (#manup / #poormark), Steve goes a little crazy and in the news we chat about brewing at home using pods, books and the exciting news of the Manchester Beer Week.

This week’s #HopTopic hits a nerve with many of you, there’s a fairly obvious #prizelessprize and a bonus interview with Magic Rock Brewing and Tap Room.

It’s Beer O’clock!

UK Top Beer

Top Beer

10 months, 7 polls and over 3500 votes later one beer has emerged as being the UK Top Beer…

Beavertown’s ‘Gamma Ray’ wins the final poll of our series by an absolute landslide, taking around 40% of the votes cast, proving that this is indeed a beer that the craft wankers UK beer drinkers will go to again and again.

Episode 93 – Mystery Beer Live Episode

To cap off Season 5 the Beer O’Clock Show went live to the YouTubes to record the grand unveiling of the end-of-season Mystery Beer that only Steve knew about.

Listen to the polished version show via the usual means, or watch our little faces from the YouTube recording below as we break open and enjoy Magic Rock’s Bourbon Barrel Bearded Lady Imperial Brown Stout.

There’s a preview of the forthcoming Lock In with Sharona from Left Hand Brewing telling us all about the beers we’ll be drinking. Plus the final #PrizelessPrize was the closest one we’ve had all season. Check out the winning entry here and the runners up here.

We recount the season past, and all the beers and company we enjoyed, and Mark gets a bit emotional.

It’s Beer O’Clock!
