Episode 6 - Hops

Welcome to the sixth episode of The Beertalkers. It's been a while but we are back and this episode we are talking about hops.

Some hoppy links for you. 

A list of British hops from Charles Faram.

The British Hop association

In the show we taste two classic beers which show off British and American hops.

Adnams Broadside made with British First Gold hops

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale made with American Cascade Hops



Palais De La Biere is a haven for beer lovers in Lyon

A French IPA from L'Agrivoise.

"A great French take of a highly hopped IPA, Magnifique!"








The gooseberry sour from Redwillow Brewery that Soph tasted in Craft Beer Co. 

"Beer poured a hazy, autumnal gold colour and had a funky, farmyardy aroma and then a tart, but earthy flavour with the gooseberry bursting through tangily in the finish."

We taste beer live from the Kent Green Hop Beer Fortnight. (Apologies for the sound quality of the live recording). Sam tasted Tonbridge Brewery Capel Pale (4.5%) and Wantsum Brewery Green Hop Bramling Cross (4.5%). 

The Buxton sour porter was called Wolfscote and you can read Soph's review of it on her blog post about Indy Man Beer Con: http://afemaleview.net/2013/10/26/indy-manbeer-con/

Sam's been to The Brussels Beer weekend again! Read about his experiences last year.


Sophie has been tasting Harvey's Imperial Stout at the Great British Beer Festival
