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 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.

Hopinions on Films | Die Hard

Buckle up, don’t forget your shoes and join us for another classic film. This time we get stuck into the ultimate Christmas movie, Die Hard, with this box of specially selected beer from Beer Merchants which you can order to drink along with us.

We chose what we thought was the best order for the beers, but as always, feel free to enjoy them in whatever way you want as we join John McClane in defeating Hans & his gang.

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

Lost & Grounded ‘Hop-hand Fallacy’ |  Hans Gruber innit

Augustiner ‘Helles’ | Why are the baddies always German?

Tiny Rebel ‘Fubar’ | Has a grenade on it

Northern Monk  ‘Eternal Darkness’ | (spoiler alert) What Hans falls into

Gipsy Hill ‘Superfan’ | The lager that McClane (and anyone that actually listens to this) deserves

Siren ‘Kentucky Tickler’ | Yippee KIPA mother fucker

 

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 Die Hard is.

Hopinions 41 “Canned”

This week we talk about beer in cans, plus the usual beery adventures and news.

Beer | Wiper & True ‘Yorkshire Square’, Northern Monk ‘A Newer World’ & Magic Rock ‘Bearded Lady Dessert Edition’

Hopinions | Is canned beer really better?

Many thanks to the folks at Wiper & True for sending over a couple of bottles of Yorkshire Square for us to try. This didn’t influence our thoughts on the beer.

Flavour of the Month 08 – Double Heathen

double-heathenThis month’s hottest new release is ‘Double Heathen’ from Northern Monk Brew Co.

‘Double Heathen’ follows hot on the heels of the popular ‘Heathen’ and ‘Heathen Mango Lassi’ that NMBC have released this year.

Will this 10% double IPA be too much for Mark to handle?

 

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.

Episode 157 – The End of The Road

IMG_7576It’s our last ever show and we’re live from Hop Burns & Black in what was an emotional evening as we said goodbye.

Featuring two collab brews that we made – ‘Echo Peach’ our salted peach IPA with Northern Monk and ‘Starship Fleet: Wave 2’ with Elusive Brewing. We’re also joined by Andy Parker from Elusive Brewing as we try his collab in a cask vs keg tasting.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our listeners for sticking with us for the last 4 years and for engaging in all of our madness. Thank you also to all of the suppliers, shops, breweries, brewers, event organisers that we’ve worked with over the years, it truly has been our pleasure.

For one last time folks, it’s Beer O’clock!

We head back to our favourite UK beery city this week as we feature Northern Monk’s ‘Northern Star’ mocha porter. To cement this episode’s northerness we have Rob Derbyshire from HopZine joining us for the review and also have an interview with Russell and Tyler from Northern Monk.
