Bond. James Bond. We take on an absolute cult classic from the 70’s with Martin taking geekery to a new level and talking facts throughout the entire film. The beers that we enjoyed for this show were…

Thornbridge / Cigar City ‘Jai Jai’

Arundel ‘Clockwork NEIPA (Mosaic & Idaho7)’

Innis & Gunn ’15 Barrel Aged DIPA’*

Brasserie Dupont ‘Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopping (2017)’

Weird Beard ‘Heavy Fuel’

Ampersand ‘Experiments in Evil (Whisky BA 2018)’

Northern Monk / Legitmate Industries ‘Raspberry & Pinot Noir Barrel Aged Quad’

 

*This was sent to us by Innis & Gunn but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on it or how much Bond’s cheesy one liners get much worse with age.
