Hopinions 155 “40 Years”

In this special release, Martin & Steve are joined by beer hoarder Jezza to drink their way through a selection of beers that were brewed to commemorate the Royal Wedding in 1981

Were they any good and were they even drinkable?

We also investigate what’s happened to the breweries who brewed these beers, reminisce about the Royal Wedding and look back at some of the other key events from 1981
