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.

Hopinions on Films | Avengers Assemble

Suit up, grab a beer and join us for one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. This time we get stuck into Marvel’s Avengers Assemble as we work our way through a selection of beers that we’ve put together for this episode.

We tried to drink the beers in the most sensible(?!?) order, potentially linking them to the film at points…

Yellowbelly ‘Citra Pale Ale’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Summer Wine ‘Diablo’ | Available from all good bottle shops/online stores

Rodenbach ‘Grand Gru’ | Available from Beer Merchants

Weird Beard ‘Collabageddon 17’ | Limited release, probably not available any more

Unity ‘Amalgamation’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Tring ‘Death or Glory’ | Available from Tring Brewery

Weird Beard/Time & Tide | Limited release, probably not available any more

Signature Brew ‘Anthology’ | Available from Honest Brew*

Carlsberg ‘Special Brew’ | Available from all good corner shops, offies and park benches

 

*These beers were sent to us for free by Honest Brew but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on them or on just how amazing Avengers Assemble and the entire Marvel Universe is.

Hopinions 38 “ABV”

We’re back in the studio this week chatting about if the ABV of a beer impacts on your decision to buy it and drinking one of our beers of the year so far.

Beers | Time and Tide & Weird Beard collab series ‘White Cell’, ‘Call Your Friends’ and ‘Crossing Over’

Hopinions | Does the trend of high ABV modern beers influence your buying choices?

#PrizelessPrize | Returns to the North this week with another cracker from Gammon Baron

Podblasts | London Beer City | Brasserie De La Senne

Listener Survey | We’d really appreciate 10 minutes of your time to complete our listener survey. This will help us continue to tailor the podcast so that it’s exactly what you want to hear

 

The track at the end of this week’s show is ‘Call Your Friends’ by Zebrahead and was the song that inspired Drew & Bryan to use the same name for one of these beers.

Hopinions on Films | Back to the Future

Here we go then folks… strap yourselves in, crack open your Hippo Beers Behemoth Box and floor the accelerator until you hit 88.8mph.

In our first Hopinions on Films special we ‘pair’ the following beers with Back to the Future, a timeless classic about the time travelling adventures of Marty Mcfly. We chose to drink the beers along with certain scenes to see if that made any difference to the beer or the film, we’ve included our selection and reasoning below, but feel free to enjoy in any way.

Marble ‘Ember City’ | intro scene & Marty goes to school / a beer from the Marble Metal series seemed to make sense here. You know why.

Drakes ‘IPA’ | after school / here we get to see more of Hill Valley which is quintessentially American. Made sense to drink with an American IPA.

Yeastie Boys ‘Pot Kettle Black’ | Twin Pines Mall / this is a night time scene, which felt right for a dark porter

Basqueland Brewing Project ‘Arraun’ | 1955 / there’s a lot going on in the time when Marty first makes it back to 1955, so we thought a beer that describes itself a complex red ale would make perfect sense

Omnipollo ‘Mazarin’ | Marty meets Lorraine / some of the best time travel paradoxing goes on during this scene, so we thought an easy drinking beer would work perfectly

Cromarty ‘Kool Runnings’ | the skateboard chase / the name of this beer lends itself perfectly to one of the most memorable scenes from the film

Jolly Pumpkin ‘ Calabaza Blanca’ | going to the ball / arguably one of the most uncomfortable sequences in the film, matched perfectly with a wild saison with orange zest & coriander

Weird Beard ‘Sadako’ | the end of the ball and back to 1985 / the film has a big memorable finish, and what better way to see it out than with a big impy stout?

 

We were sent this box for free by Hippo Beers but this hasn’t influenced our thoughts on any of the beers or on just how great Back to the Future is.

Hopinions 28 “Berkshire”

This week we’re joined once again by Ruth Mitchell to guide us through the beery delights that Berkshire has to offer. We also place our bets on who we think will be the next UK buy out as well as covering two polls. It’s a long one folks…

Beers | Renegade ‘Craft Lager’, Elusive Brewing ‘Plan B’ & ‘Level Up (Level 6)’, Wild Weather/Weird Beard ‘Kwantum State’ and Binghams ‘Vanilla Stout’

Hopinions | When you say “dank” what are you referring to? & Do you overlook your local breweries?

Prizeless Prize | For the first time in a while, the big box of nothing leaves UK shores and heads to Son0vagun in Ireland

Apologies for the slight issues with the sound/background noise in this episode. We were unaware of the audible hum in the room until the edit.

We are grateful that some of the breweries gave us these beers for free to feature on the show and this did not impact on our thoughts on them.

UK Top Beer

Top Beer

10 months, 7 polls and over 3500 votes later one beer has emerged as being the UK Top Beer…

Beavertown’s ‘Gamma Ray’ wins the final poll of our series by an absolute landslide, taking around 40% of the votes cast, proving that this is indeed a beer that the craft wankers UK beer drinkers will go to again and again.

UK Top Ten IPAs

IPA

The list came about due to the inspiration found in Andy Parker’s recent blog ‘Rule Britannia’ where Andy talks about “coveting beers from the US”. The task itself, was simple wasn’t it? Take to the Twittersphere to gain opinion as to a favoured ten or so beers and put them into the list. Only it wasn’t that simple. WIthin a couple of hours the list has reached 50-odd suggestions and things were running away with me, so I once again took to the Twittersphere to ask for advice and was offered the following suggestions…
