Chris (Boozer), a teacher and fine appreciator of a good brew, is under the tutelage of Matthew (The Brain), a man who works in 'the business' and is working his way towards the high rank of 'Beer Sommelier'. We hope you enjoy our rambles through some great beers from the UK and beyond!

    Episode 15 - North Brewing DIPAs

    Episode 15 - North Brewing DIPAs

    Right. Best behaviour. Definitely no lazy stereotyping this time, definitely. Today, children, we’ll be sampling a couple of double delights from our good friends North Brewing. We’ll be looking for a DIPA understanding of North’s beers, and hoping that Watching Light Move can lead us beyond our Fading Frontiers. In other news, I will once again be consulting with my legal team to make sure the Geneva Convention doesn’t cover puns. Chuffin’ grand beers though, like. Oh, damn and blast!

    Episode 14 - Big Drop

    Episode 14 - Big Drop

    What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a monster special? Is it a monsteeeeer special? Yes, it is! We have no fewer than - wait for it - EIGHT beers on the menu today, a Boozer and the Brain record, because… well, any guesses? No, actually: it’s our first ever non-alcoholic beer episode! Take five, Boozer. Today we’ll be showcasing a range from non-alc specialists Big Drop, taking in - deep breath - Double Strike Sour, Uptime Craft Lager, Pine Trail Pale Ale, Paradiso Citra IPA, Fieldhopper Golden Ale, Woodcutter Brown Ale, Galactic Milk Stout and Off-Piste Hazelnut Porter! While I hyperventilate from saying that all in one go, why don’t you crack on and have a listen? Go on, you can even listen to this one while driving! Wow, even I think that gag was bad…

    Episode 13 - Funky Fluid

    Episode 13 - Funky Fluid

    We’re back, baby! Yes, our hiatus is over, and your favourite beer-swilling pillocks – sorry, I completely misspelled ‘beer-appreciating connoisseurs’ there, didn’t I! – make their magnificent and eagerly awaited return to the airwaves as the Brain re-joins the waking world (sort of) and Boozer re-joins the drinking world. No, I don’t mean ‘re-joins’, do I? Anyway, we’re back with a bang and some Funky Fluid (dear God, please don’t read too much into that sentence). Today there’s a Modern Polish IPA and some Brown Sugar on the menu, so we’re going to polish them off and ask how come they taste so good… ah, it’s good to be back!

    Episode 12 - Goodh Brewing

    Episode 12 - Goodh Brewing

    Uh oh. It’s a brewery with a pun-friendly name. Well, might as well bow before the inevitable Brain outpouring of terribleness. Apologies in advance… right then, what a Goodh time to discover a very Goodh new brewery, wouldn’t you say, Goodh folk? Have you guessed their name yet? Yes, today we intend to have a Pretty F**kin Goodh time with a Strawberry Milkshake, then perhaps follow that up with a cuppa Joe, and round off our heroes’ breakfast by polishing off every last crumb of a Cinnamon Swirl. So, um. Those are the beers. They were made by Cornish brewery Goodh Brewing. Did I bring that across…?

    Episode 11 - Sussex Small Batch

    Ooh, you’re in for a treat today, friends, in every sense: it’s Sussex Small Batch, part three! Yes, our favourite dessert stout specialists return with three decadent delights in the form of their Zucotto, Bountiful and Salted Caramel Chocolate Stouts. This episode includes some quite recent new releases from SSB, which is rather exciting, so come and explore with us. And if you manage to get hold of any of these to drink along (which we of course always recommend for maximum listening pleasure), make sure you set your sweet tooth to the full ‘Sugar Coma’ setting while I issue a Code Yum tastiness warning. What on Earth am I on about…
