Hopinions 62 “Are We Coping?”

This week we’re in Deptford, in the Hop Stuff Brewery’s Taproom talking to owner James Yeomans about mental health in the workplace. We also got to sample a few of Hop Stuff’s beers and enjoyed a cracking pizza.

Beers | Hop Stuff ‘Pilsner’, ‘Renegade’, ‘Freudian Slip’ & ‘Woody Barrelson’

Hopinions | Should the drinks industry do more to support the mental health & wellbeing of its workers?

Perkbox | Full report can be found here

Episodes | Previous interviews with Hop Stuff can be found on episode 45 & episode 54 of the Beer O’clock Show

 

Many thanks to James from Hop Stuff for giving up his time to chat to us. The beers & pizza that we tried were on James but this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Hopinions 60 “Rewind”

After a recording break, we’re back with a mighty show covering all of the big news stories, four (count em) polls and some beers from Signature Brew.

Beers | Signature Brew ‘Studio Pilsner’, ‘Roadie’, ‘Backstage IPA’, ‘Nightliner’, ‘Treble’ and ‘Anthology’

Hopinions | Should breweries/pubs push St George’s Day like they do St Patrick’s Day?With beer festival season well underway what’s your thoughts on children at beer festivals?Are supermarkets letting things slip in relation to how they look after beer?When you see DIPA what’s your current expectation?

 

Many thanks to the folks from Signature Brew for sending us these beers for free, this didn’t influence our thoughts on the beer. 

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.

Hopinions 45 “Branding”

This week we chat about whether the death knell has been rung for pumpkin beers in the UK market and branding.

Beers | Vocation ‘Yakima Pilsner’, ‘Smash & Grab’ and collab with Chorlton ‘Sour Smash’

Hopinions | Branding. Is it important?

Links | Beavertown to stop producing Stingy Jack

 

Many thanks to Ant from Vocation for sending over a selection of cans for us to try. 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

Episode 80 – My Antonia

We’re back with Season 5, and what better way to start it off than a continuously-hopped Imperial Pils? I know, right! Fresh from Italy courtesy of our friends at Beers from Italy, it’s My Antonia – a collaboration ale from Dogfish Head and Birra del Borgo.

Joining us, and kindly supplying this week’s bottle and others throughout the upcoming season, are Andy and Geremiah from Beers from Italy.

This week’s news is the biggest ever, with the best ever pips and covers most things that we missed while we were off air. The coveted #PrizelessPrize Instagram of the week is back and we look forward to the rest of season 5.

All this plus the normal banter and chatter! It’s Beer O’Clock!

Apologies for some of the sound quality on this weeks show, we think the gremlins are still in the system following the Lock In!
