The Ale Lady |  Said this…

 

Many thanks to the folks at Lagunitas for sending us The Waldos’ Special to try for free, 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.

Hopinions 58 “Sessionable”

This week our focus is on the lower end of the ABV scale as we feature 5 beers ranging from 2.9% to 4.2%.

Beers | The Kernel ‘Table Beer’, Summer Wine ‘Pico Diego’, Gipsy Hill ‘Simcoe’, Track ‘Sonoma’ & Adnams ‘Blackshore Stout’

Hopinions | Are there enough good session beers around or is it just about the big ABV now?

 

Thanks to Liquorice in Shenfield for letting us use their tasting room to record this week.

Hopinions 37 “Influence”

This week we’re chatting with Pete McKerry about disclosure and influence. We’re also joined by Mark Johnson on the telephone to share his views on the subject.

Beers | Jester King/The Kernel ‘Biere de Saison’, Weihenstephaner ‘Hefeweissbier’ & Brewdog/Cloudwater NE IPA V2

Hopinions | Is what you drink influenced by beer reviews?
