Hopinions on Films | Avengers Infinity War

If you thought we talked a lot during last year’s Avengers Assemble podcast, then strap yourselves in. We’re about to talk a whole load more! Here’s what we enjoyed during this show…

Hop Hooligans ‘Collision Course’*

Stone Berlin ‘IPA’

Brewdog ‘Declassified Demi-God’**

Vocation ‘Heart & Soul’

Roosters ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’

Brewdog ‘ Paradox Uncle Duke’s’**

Half Acre ‘Gone Away’

Northern Monk ‘Death’

 

*This was given to us by Simply Hops as part of the Underdog Brewing Competition 2019 / **These were part of the 2018 Advent Calendar that Brewdog sent to us but none of this influenced our thoughts on Avengers Infinity War being the greatest cinematic event of all time. Until Endgame that is.

 

Hopinions 80 “Flavours”

More experiments this week as Martin & Steve tuck into a load of adjunct-filled beers and try their food counterparts to see if they actually taste like the things they are supposed to taste like.

Beers | Vocation & Yeastie Boys ‘Breakfast Club’, Thornbridge & Fourpure ‘Fresa’, Wild Beer ‘Millionaire’, Tiny Rebel & Flavourly ‘Pango’ and Brewdog & Amundsen ‘Mallow Mafia’

Hopinions | Do the adjuncts added to some beers really make the beer taste like the thing that has been added?

Many thanks to Wild Beer Co and Brewdog for sending us beers to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

Hopinions 45 “Branding”

This week we chat about whether the death knell has been rung for pumpkin beers in the UK market and branding.

Beers | Vocation ‘Yakima Pilsner’, ‘Smash & Grab’ and collab with Chorlton ‘Sour Smash’

Hopinions | Branding. Is it important?

Many thanks to Ant from Vocation for sending over a selection of cans for us to try. 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 21 “On Trend”

This week we’re looking back at some great beers we’ve had recently and chatting about what it means for a beer to be “on trend”.

Beer | Six Degrees North/Magic Rock ‘Magic Six’, Chorlton/Vocation ‘Sour & Death’ & Lervig/Hoppin Frog ‘Sippin Into Darkness’

Hopinions | Should beers in a brewery’s core range change to stay on trend?

Blogs | Pub Curmudgeon’s ‘Love of a lifetime‘ & Matt Chinnery’s review of Stokey Beer Fest

Prizeless Prize | The big box of nothing returns to the North this week as Cowboy Drinks Craft takes the honours

 

We’re grateful to Matt at Six Degrees North for sending us ‘Magic Six’ . The fact that we were given this beer for free did not influence our thoughts on it.
