Hopinions 87 “Smokin”

We’re joined by smoked beer fan, blogger and all round nice guy Mark Johnson for this weeks show as we explore what smoked beers can offer.

Beers | Torrside ‘Sto Lat’, ‘Rauchwine’ & ‘Dogs of War: Battalion Bull Terrier (2019.1)’, Runaway Brewery ‘Smoked Porter’, Cloudwater/Against The Grain ‘#www.oooooo.ddd’, Marble ‘Imperial Smoked Grodziskie’ and Elusive Brewing/Emperor’s Brewing ‘Obi Wan Shinobi’

Hopinions | What would you say is the most important ingredient in beer when it comes to the personal taste preferences you look for? | What’s your preference? | Smoked beers…

Hopinions 86 “Marble Brewery”

This week we’re at 57 Thomas Street in Manchester and we’re joined by Marble Brewery Director Jan Rogers and Head Brewer Joe Ince to talk about the development of the brewery and the importance of cask beer.

Hopinions | Is cask ale really in danger of dying or has it been saved by modern interpretation?

Beers | There were many of Marble’s beers consumed

 

Many thanks to Joe for giving up his time to show us around the new brewery in Salford, take us to the Marble Arch for a pint and walk with us to 57 Thomas Street. Thanks also to Jan for giving up her time to chat to us for the podcast. Marble Brewery fed us and gave us beer all day for free but this didn’t influence our thoughts on just how great Marble Brewery and the folk that work there are.

Hopinions on Films | Back to the Future

Here we go then folks… strap yourselves in, crack open your Hippo Beers Behemoth Box and floor the accelerator until you hit 88.8mph.

In our first Hopinions on Films special we ‘pair’ the following beers with Back to the Future, a timeless classic about the time travelling adventures of Marty Mcfly. We chose to drink the beers along with certain scenes to see if that made any difference to the beer or the film, we’ve included our selection and reasoning below, but feel free to enjoy in any way.

Marble ‘Ember City’ | intro scene & Marty goes to school / a beer from the Marble Metal series seemed to make sense here. You know why.

Drakes ‘IPA’ | after school / here we get to see more of Hill Valley which is quintessentially American. Made sense to drink with an American IPA.

Yeastie Boys ‘Pot Kettle Black’ | Twin Pines Mall / this is a night time scene, which felt right for a dark porter

Basqueland Brewing Project ‘Arraun’ | 1955 / there’s a lot going on in the time when Marty first makes it back to 1955, so we thought a beer that describes itself a complex red ale would make perfect sense

Omnipollo ‘Mazarin’ | Marty meets Lorraine / some of the best time travel paradoxing goes on during this scene, so we thought an easy drinking beer would work perfectly

Cromarty ‘Kool Runnings’ | the skateboard chase / the name of this beer lends itself perfectly to one of the most memorable scenes from the film

Jolly Pumpkin ‘ Calabaza Blanca’ | going to the ball / arguably one of the most uncomfortable sequences in the film, matched perfectly with a wild saison with orange zest & coriander

Weird Beard ‘Sadako’ | the end of the ball and back to 1985 / the film has a big memorable finish, and what better way to see it out than with a big impy stout?

 

We were sent this box for free by Hippo Beers but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on any of the beers or on just how great Back to the Future is.

Episode 68 – Marble Dobber

This week the boys tuck into the beer that won the Beer O’Clock Show’s “UK’s Top IPA” poll, Dobber IPA from Marble Brewery. Will they appreciate its award-winning hoppage?

Also! An interview with Marble Brewery and your very own chance to win a bottle of Dobber – listen to find out how!

In this week’s news Brewdog, Summer Brew Fest & Beers East Anglia plus loads of chatter and opinions – oh my! It’s Beer O’Clock!

UK Top Ten IPAs

IPA

The list came about due to the inspiration found in Andy Parker’s recent blog ‘Rule Britannia’ where Andy talks about “coveting beers from the US”. The task itself, was simple wasn’t it? Take to the Twittersphere to gain opinion as to a favoured ten or so beers and put them into the list. Only it wasn’t that simple. WIthin a couple of hours the list has reached 50-odd suggestions and things were running away with me, so I once again took to the Twittersphere to ask for advice and was offered the following suggestions…
