This week we’re focusing on a question from one of our listeners about whether revered and rare beers live up to their hype. Thanks to Roland Glew for suggesting this topic.

Beers | Jester King ‘Enigmatic Taxa’, JW Lees ‘Harvest Ale (2015)’, Thornbridge ‘Days of Creation’, Brewdog ‘Hinterland (EFP BA version)’, Fuller’s ‘Brewers Reserve No 5’ and Old Chimneys ‘Good King Henry Special Reserve (2013)’

Hopinions | Do you care about the temperature of your beer?

 

 

Hopinions 50 “Friends”

This week we dive into the Fullers & Friends box of beers, get stuck into loads of news and take a look back at our first 50 shows.

Hopinions | As it’s that time of year where we find ourselves in venues not serving drinks of our choosing, what do you drink when there’s no decent beer on?

Episode 132 – Vintage Ale 2014

IMG_5277It’s the end of another season and we say goodbye with a beer that’s becoming our staple end of year finisher, the Fuller’s Vintage Ale (2014 edition).

We take a look back over what has been our biggest season ever and chat about our highlights of the season. We also talk Golden Pints for which we’re very grateful to all of you who have nominated us in your posts.

The last of the coveted 2015 big boxes of nothing is awarded not once but twice in the #prizelessprize and we take a look forward to season 9.

As always, a massive thank you to all of the breweries who have supported us this season, all of the guests (both live and interviewed) and to you all, the listeners for sticking with us.

It’s  Beer O’clock!

Episode 50 – Fullers 2012 Vintage Ale

We’re 50! Well, 50 episodes old at least, and it’s a very special episode with a very special beer: Fuller’s 2012 Vintage Ale.

How will Steve and Mark enjoy a beer they’ve been holding on to for over a year? Will they drift off into hours of reminiscing? How have they last this long, anyway?

All this and the usual beery chatter – it’s beer o’clock!
