In this episode, we have a taste of Carlsberg : Rebrew after attending a Dublin event back in August, we were given a couple of bottles to take home.
You can also read Pete McKerry's take on it all here
We also talk about this episodes #Hopical section about our favourite Tap Rooms. Some great places mentioned.
We also catch up on our beery adventures over the last couple of weeks.
Yes a blatant rip off of a recent Brewdog post, but hey, I like it.
In this podcast episode we taste a new seasonal offering from Stone Berlin in the form of Xocoveza, a spiced mocha stout. Brought in by Fourcorners. We also dip into the Beer Snob cellar and bring out Buxton's Living End, a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout.
We look back over the last couple of weeks, and the Irish version of #BigBeeryNight16, and we have left the giving page open until Friday 18th November, and you can find it here
It's a happy coincidence that most folk in the Irish micro brewing industry are of the sound sort. Many are happy to chat away, and talk about their love of all things beer.
We're delighted to have been able to sit down with Alex Lawes, the Head Brewer of Rye River Brewing, brewers of The McGargles range. Not only has Alex overseen the stabilisation of the recipes of the McGargles beers, he's also delivered the coup de grace of Francis Big Bangin IPA, which has quite frankly, made a number of people eat their words.
He's also overseeing a range of brands for Dunne's Stores (Grafters) and Lidl (The Crafty Brewing Co) and these beers have been punching well above their weight, none so much as the Pale Wheat Ale which I wrote about here
In this interview we cover a wide range of subjects but most importantly, an exclusive reveal of the next Whiplash Beer. After Alex teased us all with this a couple of weeks ago.
We hope you enjoy the interview, and keep an eye out from Next Week when this new beer drops, we had it out of the tanks, and it was tasting sawwweeettt!
Thanks for listening
