Hopinions 55 “Changes”

In this week’s epic show, we chat about great beers we’ve had recently, put things on lists, revisit the Ten Untappd Commandments and go back to some breweries and beers that we’ve featured before.

Beers | Renegade Brewery ‘Snake Oil’, Elusive Brewing ‘Invisible Wall’, Siren ‘Acid Jam’ & White Hag ‘Black Boar’

Hopinions | Has your use of Untappd changed since you first started using it?

Other polls | Pete McKerry | Greg Avola (Untappd) | Beernomicon

Links | Shortlist article | Bradley Cummings Manifesto | Cheshire Brewhouse crowdfunder

 

Many thanks to Matt from Renegade Brewery, Andy from Elusive Brew and the folks at White Hag for sending us these beers for free, this didn’t influence our thoughts. 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 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.

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.
