Many thanks to Moor for letting us use their taproom space before opening to record this show. Thanks Also to Annie and Alex from Lost & Grounded, Moor Beer and Brett from Wild Beer for making this year’s Crimbo Crawl a little special.

Hopinions 65 “Refreshes The Parts”

Beers | Heineken ‘lager’, Beavertown ‘Neck Oil’, ‘Gamma Roy’, ‘Smog Rocket’ & ‘Lord Smog Almighty’

Hopinions |  We’re all still going to drink Beavertown beer right?Do you think Heineken’s investment in Beavertown is bad for the independent sector?

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 24 “Blown Away”

This week we’re back in the studio and chatting about beers that have blown us away. We also get around to finally reviewing the Alltech Craft Brews & Food Festival that we attended a few weeks ago.

Beers | Pirate Life ‘Throwback IPA’, ‘IPA’ & ‘IIPA’

Hopinions | When was the last time you had a beer that blew you away & what was it?

Prizeless Prize | Stewards enquiry is ongoing for this week’s winner from Sparkyrite

Blogs | Mark Johnson responds to last week’s show with a great piece of writing about his passion for the pub

Interview | We talk to Sean from Pirate Life about bringing great Australian beer to the UK

*Apologies for the slight overlap at the end of this show, some technical gremlins interfered with our normally perfect production

 

We were given these beers for free from the folks at Pirate Life but this hasn’t impacted on our views of just how great they bloodywell are.

Hopinions 23 “Choices”

This week we’re joined by guest and beer sommelier Ruth Mitchell to talk about the choices we make about drinking.

Beer | Edinburgh Beer Factory ‘Paolozzi’ & Flying Dog ‘Easy IPA’

Gin | Wayfarer & Renegade Brewery ‘Ukko’

Hopinions | With off trade sales overtaking on trade why do you choose to drink at home instead of the pub?

Prizeless Prize | For the second show in a row, Cowboy Drinks Craft takes the honours

Blogs | Connor Murphy/MCR Beer Week, Pete McKerry, Pub Curmudgeon and Boak & Bailey

Facebook | Check out our round up of our beers of February exclusively on our Facebook page

 

Many thanks to Fuller’s Counting House for providing us with a room to record this podcast. All of our beers were paid for although Ruth did provide the gin for free, but none of this influenced our thoughts.
