The Vobes Show 1841
Andrew and I met up the other day and decided to have a stroll around a wonderful country mansion close to Doncaster called Cusworth Hall. To make the event a little more memorable we decided to record a podcast in which we discuss our love of walking, history, film making and more. If you have an hour, why not join us and find out all about Andrew and his walking videos and the elegant Georgian mansion and it’s three lakes sculpted by the infamous Lancelot Capability Brown.
Check out the Walks Around Britain website.
Anyway, on to the beers. In this show we sampled the very lovely Thornbridge Brewery’s Jaipur which I was thrilled to discover was a very hoppy beer, similar to Hop Wallop by the Victory Brewing Company in the USA we had when we were over there. I do like a nice kick in the hop department.
Next up was the Hogs Back Brewery, a celebratory ales for the Queens 60th year as monarch. This was called Majestea. It was in fact a spruced up version of their T.E.A ale with an increased in alcoholic content of 10% to a lovely 5.2%. It was rich, deep and malty and I did enjoy that.
Finally we had the Meantime Brewery’s London Stout and after a little debate between the difference of a stout and a porter, we found this pretty good, although Jimmy wasn’t as delighted with it as I was.
Enjoy the show, we also discuss car parking, the merits and complications of WordPress websites and the joy of researching the old historic directories for the Bald Explorer episode I am working on.
