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.

Back to the Future

 

The #12BeersofXmas is over for another year and without a doubt it was a massive success. Only in it’s second year, the number of people taking part this year trebled and I really enjoyed following, watching and reading about the beers that were being enjoyed.

The UK Top 10 Ales

 

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.

Still Thinking about… #12BeersofXmas

Still Thinking 1

Blog by Michael McGrorty

An excuse to drink a beer every day for twelve days? I am definitely going to take up that offer. When Steve from The Beer O’Clock Show came up with the idea for this I was a little bit skeptical. “Do I have enough ‘special’ beers to take part?”, I thought. I quickly realised that the beer didn’t matter much, all that mattered was taking part, so I put together a list and prepared myself for 12 straight days of drinking. Well, here goes…
