Hopinions | Are alcohol free beers getting better?Is it ok for pubs/bars restrict the measures that you can buy beer in?

Many thanks to Fergus from Adnams and Simon from Thornbridge for sending us their beers to try for free on the show, this didn’t influence our thoughts.

We were sent Cloaking Device by the folks from Brooklyn but this didn’t influence on our thoughts of just how good it was. 

Thornbridge

In this special episode, Steve & Myles Lambert are joined by The Ale Lady at Thornbridge Brewery for a tasting of ‘Lukas’, ‘Raindrops on Roses’, ‘Kipling’, ‘Am:Pm’ and ‘Mango Halcyon’ with Ben from the brewing team.

This was part of the Big Beery Night 16 auction lot that Myles & Steve won an included a tour of Thornbridge Hall and the Riverside Brewery.

Information on public tours of the Riverside Brewery are available here.

 

Although the beers and visit were part of the lot that we won, Simon and the team at Thornbridge showed us an amazing level of hospitality for which we are very grateful. None of this impacted on our thoughts of the experience, although the pint of cask Jaipur in the Riverside Bar was possibly one of the best beers ever poured.

Revisited 01 – Wild Raven Black IPA

 

It’s the first in our Revisited series, where we go back to beers we reviewed way back when we started, and experience them with more seasoned taste buds.

This episode we go back to Thornbridge’s fine black IPA, Wild Raven (once called simply ‘Raven’).

The UK Top 10 Ales

 

We have our first brewery to win 2 polls, running away with the votes on this one…

1. Marble Pint 3.9% ABV (bitter)
Former guest on the show and Manchester-based blogger Rowan Molyneux has this to say about the winning beer… Marble has been one of my favourite breweries since I started drinking beer, and when I moved to Manchester I was delighted to be able to drink in Marble’s own pubs. Zingy, pale and fresh, Pint is a stalwart of the Marble range. Full-bodied despite its low ABV, the grapefruit and lemon flavours sing from the glass and its clean, refreshing nature leads you towards ordering another, and another…. To drink this by anything less than, well, the pint, would be an injustice! For me, Pint is the perfect session beer.
