The Ale Lady |  Said this…

 

Many thanks to the folks at Lagunitas for sending us The Waldos’ Special to try for free, this didn’t influence our thoughts on the beer. Thanks also to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

Hopinions on Films | Avengers Assemble

Suit up, grab a beer and join us for one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. This time we get stuck into Marvel’s Avengers Assemble as we work our way through a selection of beers that we’ve put together for this episode.

We tried to drink the beers in the most sensible(?!?) order, potentially linking them to the film at points…

Summer Wine ‘Diablo’ | Available from all good bottle shops/online stores

Rodenbach ‘Grand Gru’ | Available from Beer Merchants

Hopinions 59 “The Pub”

This week we are back at the Victoria Inn in Colchester where we are joined by landlord and landlady Andy & Sheena and their bar manager Richard. We talk all things pub and almost forget about the beer that we’re drinking.

Beers | East London Brewery ‘Cowcatcher’ (cask)

Hopinions | What do you look for in a pub?

Sparklers | Episode can be found here

 

Thanks to Andy, Sheena & Richard for letting us use their pub to record this week. We didn’t have to pay for the space and the beers were on the house but this didn’t influence our thoughts on what a great pub the Victoria Inn is or just how sessionable the Cowcatcher was. Even if it was on cask. If you’re ever in Colchester, make sure to visit the Victoria Inn and follow them on Faceboook for up to date news and events.

Hopinions 58 “Sessionable”

This week our focus is on the lower end of the ABV scale as we feature 5 beers ranging from 2.9% to 4.2%.

Beers | The Kernel ‘Table Beer’, Summer Wine ‘Pico Diego’, Gipsy Hill ‘Simcoe’, Track ‘Sonoma’ & Adnams ‘Blackshore Stout’

Hopinions | Are there enough good session beers around or is it just about the big ABV now?

 

Thanks to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

Hopinions 57 “Ones To Watch”

This week we’ve teamed up with Beerbods to bring you the ‘Ones to Watch 2018’ box. However, 12 beers in one night is too much for even us to get through so we drafted in some help from Justin Mason & Matt Chinnery to help us get through the box.

Beers | Velvet Owl Brewing Co ‘Old Sport’, 71 Brewing ‘Rhuby Weiss’, Burnt Mill ‘Pintle Pale Ale’, Good Things Brewing Co ‘Hazy Pale’, Tap Social Movement ‘Grebe’s Procession’, Northern Whisper ‘Yammerhouse’, Boat Lane Brewery ‘Phantom Falls’, The Kiln Brewery ‘Breakout’, Lithic Brewery ‘Pilsner’, Unbarred ‘IPA’, West By Three ‘Grisette’ & Ampersand ‘Middle Road’

Hopinions | Do you have a beer subscription?

 

Many thanks to the folks at Beerbods for sending us this box for free, this didn’t influence our thoughts on the beers. Thanks also to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

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.

In the first half of our Midlands Special, we’re talking to the folks behind the Midlands Beer Blog and Carl from Twisted Barrel about Carl’s poll/post asking if the Midlands has been overlooked.

Beers | Twisted Barrel ‘Lokai’, Glasshouse ‘Me Julie’ & Green Duck ‘Ricochet’

Hopinions | (Courtesy of Carl Marshall) Do you think the beer scene in the West Midlands is overlooked?

Many thanks to the Midlands Beer Blog for arranging the venue for this podcast and to all of the breweries involved who gave their beers for free. As always this didn’t impact on our views of the beers we tried.

Hopinions on Films | Raiders of the Lost Ark

Grab your hat and whip, get your adventuring shoes on a join us for another classic film. Beer Merchants have put together this Raiders of the Lost Ark themed box for you to drink along with us.

This time we join Indiana Jones on his first adventure as he travels around the world fighting Nazis and saving the world (and the girl). This time we chose a lottery system for the beers, but once again, feel free to enjoy them in whatever way you want as you cheer Indy on to victory.

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

Hacker-Pschorr ‘Munchner Kellerbier’ | very German

Red Hook ‘IPA’ | Old school American

Flying Dog ‘Snake Dog IPA’ | SNAKES

Kona ‘Fire Rock’ | coz the Staff of Ra was hot

Kees ‘Barrel Project #9’ | Archived away like the ark at the end of the film

Siren ‘Liquid Mistress’ | Because Marion is epic at drinking. And kinda hot.

Lervig ‘Hazy Days’ | Just an amazing film beer

Vibrant Forest ‘Kaleidoscope’ | Amazing new British beer

 

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 Raiders of the Lost Ark is.
