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 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.

Episode 133 – All Black

IMG_5575In our first ever Winter Special, we’re broadcasting live from Hop Burns & Black again, and this time it’s all about New Zealand.

We feature and taste 5 beers with a live audience and we chat to Todd from the NZ Collective and Stu from the Yeastie Boys.

On the menu for tonight’s special was ‘Pot Kettle Black’ & ‘PBK Remix 2015 Dark Matta’ from the Yeastie Boys, ‘Oyster Stout’ from Three Boys, ‘Fresh Hopped Black the RIPA’ from Renaissance and the indulgent ‘iStout’ from 8 Wired.

In our live #hoptopic we decide once and for all which city is the best beery city in the UK.

Massive thanks to the guys at Hop Burns & Black for hosting us again to Todd & Stu for giving up their time and to the live audience who we’re pretty sure half of them had no idea what was going on!

It’s Beer O’clock!
