BeerCast #60 – Purity Showcase. The award-winning Purity Brewing Company from Warwickshire sent us some review samples for a podcast – so we turn the airwaves over to another Brewery Showcase. As they make only three beers (which is fairly unusual for a modern producer these days), we throw in a bonus fourth beer from London’s Kernel Brewery – their monumental Imperial Stout. On the panel today – Richard, Grooben and Shovels. Big thanks to Kirsten at Purity for sending the review samples through!

1. Purity Pure Gold (4.3%)
2. Purity Mad Goose (4.2%)
3. Purity Pure UBU (4.5%)
4. Kernel Imperial Stout (12.5%) @thebeercast

BeerCast #59 – IPA is Dead

Mar 29, 2011

BeerCast #59 – IPA is Dead. Last month Fraserburgh’s BrewDog released a series of four India Pale Ales to showcase the wonderful versatility of hops. Our panel sample each of the 7.5% beers – the only difference between them being the variety of hop used – and discuss whether is really means the end for IPA, or just another beginning. To test things a bit further, we throw in another singe hop IPA for good measure – well, why not? On the panel today – Richard, Shovels, Grooben and Stu. Stand by for big scores, big discussions, and the best way of cleaning a lion’s cage…

1. BrewDog IPA is Dead Bramling X (7.5%)
2. BrewDog IPA is Dead Nelson Sauvin (7.5%)
3. BrewDog IPA is Dead Sorachi Ace (7.5%)
4. BrewDog IPA is Dead Citra (7.5%)
5. Kernel IPA Citra (7.2%) @thebeercast

Feb 15, 2011

BeerCast #58 – The Long Americans. Our panel get to grips with some exceedingly lengthily titled American craft beers. Shovels went on a pre-Christmas jaunt to Florida and managed to take a taxi to a notable St Petersburg area beer shop. $130 and a bulging suitcase later – he returned to the UK laden with beery goodness. Sharing the spoils with him on this episode are Richard, Grooben and MrB…

2. Rogue Dry Hopped St. Rogue Red Ale (5.2%)
3. Hoppin’ Frog Hoppin’ to Heaven IPA (6.8%)
