The Vobes Show 1833

May 05

Well, it is another beer show and Jimmy Hastel and Richard Vobes  are back in the the legendary Beach Hut recording another podcast for all our lovely listeners. In our quest to find the perfect real ale we sample another three. This time they were purchased from the Worthing Waitrose store, which I note seem to more expensive that most unfortunately. Maybe that is something to do with the government’s increased tax they ave imposed on us all.

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.
