This week we dive into a bottle from the fine London brewery, Five Points Brewing – a red rye ale called Hook Island Red. We also take a few sips of something special that makes Mark’s lips a bit numb, yes folks we tackle Brewdog’s Sink The Bismark.
There’s a news section that makes Steve proud, we look forward to our new ‘Revisited’ spin off, preview season 7 and there’s a first time winner in the #prizelessprize
All this plus an interview with Barry who manages a bar in Dublin’s Temple Bar about the growing Irish beer scene.

We have our first brewery to win 2 polls, running away with the votes on this one…
1. Marble Pint 3.9% ABV (bitter)
Former guest on the show and Manchester-based blogger Rowan Molyneux has this to say about the winning beer… Marble has been one of my favourite breweries since I started drinking beer, and when I moved to Manchester I was delighted to be able to drink in Marble’s own pubs. Zingy, pale and fresh, Pint is a stalwart of the Marble range. Full-bodied despite its low ABV, the grapefruit and lemon flavours sing from the glass and its clean, refreshing nature leads you towards ordering another, and another…. To drink this by anything less than, well, the pint, would be an injustice! For me, Pint is the perfect session beer.
