BEER O'CLOCK PODCAST - EPISODE 7

Episode 7 - Show Notes 

It's been longer than we'd hoped, life & Good Beer Week may have gotten in the way, but Episode 7 is now live! Good Beer Week proved as hectic as ever and I didn't get any of the proposed Year of Local posts done in time... The recovery week has seen it take the best part of a week to get this podcast episode up! We'll be following up with a post Good Beer Week episode in a few weeks time. In the meantime I hope you enjoy this months episode.

We're going to rotate some segments in and out, especially early on while we get into the swing of things - so if there is anything you love or hate, please let us know! The idea at the moment is that the podcast will be (roughly) monthly, and we'll try and keep that pretty regular - at least more so than I've kept the blog up to date recently... Basically every month we'll discuss some of the latest news from the beer world, we'll talk about some beers that we've been enjoying over the last month & we'll crack something interesting from my cellar.

This month we're launching a new segment alongside the usual segments; News, What We're Drinking, Scouting Report & Noz's Cellar. The new segment is basically a live version of the Macro Lager section on the blog. Each time we do it we'll drink 3 lagers and try and slot them into a master ranking - it should be fun! Anyway, enjoy this episode!
