Unpretentious beer talk from the Steel City.
Join hosts Adam and James and friends as they discover and try new beers, meet local breweries and look at the beer scene across Sheffield
Beer Cocktails 2.0
It's a return to the virtual Hopcast and a return to a theme we've done before: Beer Cocktails.
Each of the crew come up with own variation on the theme.
Our guest is regular listener Paul who quizzes the team on their real Sheffield beer credentials (spoiler alert: it doesn't go well).
If you don't want to ruin the surprise of just how amazing Paul's beer cocktail creations are, stop reading now.
Here are his recipes:
"For Crying Out Loud" (breakfast stout cocktail)
Add a shot of espresso (Tiamo from Pollards is my choice), shot of Bourbon, (Knob Creek is my choice) tablespoon of Chocolate ice cream (Our Cow Molly is my choice) to !/3 pt of Thornbridge Necessary Evil Imperial stout, and mix.
Whip 100ml of double cream with a shot of Coffee Baileys, and float on top of stout mix.
Top with Coco pops if you are Adam!
Freeze a can of Tiny rebel Clwb Tropicana for 90 mins (so it turns to a slush)
Put a shot of Pineapple gin, shot of orange juice, and 1/2 shot of sugar syrup in a glass and top up with beer slushie
Back at the pub!
For the first time in 14 months, three quarters of the team got together for beer at an actual pub! So that was the perfect opportunity to record a little bonus episode.
We chat a bit about what we've been up to since the pubs have reopened in April.
Beats and beers
We're joined by Luke from the awesome Rhythm and Brews podcasts for a bit of a music special.
Except, there's no actual music. But we talk about it a lot.
St Patrick's Day so it is
It's a few days afterwards but this episode is a bit of a St Patrick's Day special.
We all pick a beer roughly along those lines and stake our claims for Irish heritage. Our guest Declan definitely wins that one!
Brewery Tap Fan Club
As the reopening of pubs and bars moves closer, we focus on our favourite Brewery Taps.
Adam, Laura, Sean and James are joined by guest Frank, who came up with the idea for the theme.
We each pick out a beer from a brewery with a taproom that we love.
Well... apart from Sean who has to be a bit different, of course!
Wish We Were There
The panel are joined by Robin Baker from Abbeydale Brewery as they each pick a beer that represents somewhere they'd reeeeeaaaally like to be right now.
There's a real mix of locations and Sean's completely catches James out!
Beer beer beer
Fantastic podcast loving all the contributors. Everyone has really good points to make🍺
Beer, beer and more beer!
My favourite beer podcast, love the structure of the show and all the people involved. Keep up the good work!
Great New podcast!
Great listening, relaxed, not over the top ‘beer nerdery’. Easy listening even if you are from outside the city region, as the beer reviews and brewery discussion are interesting!
