Peakender (at home)Peakender (at home)Yep this coming Friday *should* be the start of Peakender 2020, the three-day beer and music festival at Bakewell Showground organised by Thornbridge Brewery. Of course, it isn't happening, so instead we have our own petit Peakender art home. Indoors of course (it was raining heavily!) We're joined by Alice Batham from the Thornbridge brewing team as we reminisce about previous years and find out how things have been at the brewery over lockdown. Not forgetting sharing a beer each as well, themed around Peakender. You can have your very own Peakender at Home with Thornbridge's rather nifty box here: https://shop.thornbridgebrewery.co.uk/products/peakender-case (https://shop.thornbridgebrewery.co.uk/products/peakender-case) Yep this coming Friday *should* be the start of Peakender 2020, the three-day beer and music festival at Bakewell Showground organised by Thornbridge Brewery.

Hopcast x Gluten Free PintHopcast x Gluten Free PintWe've been talking about it for ages - now we have finally gotten round to a gluten-free episode of the Hopcast. We're joined by Matt, who runs Gluten Free Pint, to talk about the range of choice available nowadays - and of course we all crack open a GF beer. Plus there's plenty to talk about it, with pubs now open again - and one of the Hopcasters actually made their way to one on the day they reopened. We reflect on the sad news that the Devonshire Cat won't be reopening, and we discuss the ill-thought-out Sheffield Council tweet warning people 'Coronavirus will be waiting for them' in pubs.

And this week we all crack open the same beer despite the miles between us - a real classic too: Timothy Taylor's Landlord. Sean possibly enjoyed it in 1952 when it was first brewed while James is drinking it for the first time (which is a bit criminal, really). We're joined by fellow podcaster Nick Law (check out http://hopforward.beer/ (http://hopforward.beer/)) to hear how he's getting on during lockdown. Stay safe, and safe home.

And this week we all crack open the same beer despite the miles between us - a real classic too: Timothy Taylor's Landlord. Sean possibly enjoyed it in 1952 when it was first brewed while James is drinking it for the first time (which is a bit criminal, really). We're joined by fellow podcaster Nick Law (check out http://hopforward.beer/ (http://hopforward.beer/)) to hear how he's getting on during lockdown. Stay safe, and safe home. Sheffield Hopcast
Hopcast Lockdown Week 3Hopcast Lockdown Week 3We reach the end of the third week of lockdown, and indeed the end of the Easter weekend. So there's only possible theme for this week's beers: Easter, of course! Unless you're Sean, that is... We're also joined by the super lovely James Buxton of Thornbridge Brewery fame to see how he's coping with lockdown (and to sink a cool 12.5% imperial stout too, obvs). We hope you're doing alright in these challenging times and that we're able to provide a little bit of company once a week - please let us have any feedback and if you have any ideas or potential themes we could do let us know. And we're always looking for guests to join us too. We reach the end of the third week of lockdown, and indeed the end of the Easter weekend.

And which will be overall winner?<br /> We also talk about the takeover of Magic Rock Brewery and the extended beer range in Tesco.<br /> **To make the beer cocktails yourself, here are Laura&#8217;s amazing recipes**<br /> Grand MargarIPA<br /> 25ml tequila<br /> 15ml Grand Marnier<br /> Half can of IPA &#8211; we used Cannonball but Punk also works well, basically any straightforward (non-adjuncted) IPA<br /> Wedge of lime<br /> &#8211; Stir down the spirits with ice and squeeze of lime juice. Strain into a glass and top up with the beer.<br /> &#8220;Evening Sunset&#8221;<br /> 25ml gin<br /> 75ml pink grapefruit juice<br /> Dash of grapefruit bitters<br /> 100ml beer &#8211; we used Abbeydale Unbeliever Guava Gose. You could use any light/fruity sour, or an IPA also works well, I&#8217;ve made it with NM New World IPA before<br /> &#8211; Add all the liquids to a glass over ice. Garnish with a wedge of ruby grapefruit.<br /> <br /> Stouty Mary<br /> 50ml vodka<br /> 100ml tomato juice<br /> 50ml strong stout &#8211; we used Kernel Imperial Brown. A chilli stout would work well too.<br /> Henderson&#8217;s Relish<br /> Tabasco<br /> Optional: other chilli! Depending on the stout you could also add a dash of something acid, lemon juice/pickle juice, but we didn&#8217;t do this as it could have clashed with the strong stout we selected.<br /> &#8211; Stir all ingredients apart from the stout over ice. Carefully float the stout on top using the back of a spoon. Garnish with freshly ground black pepper. Drink with caution!<br /> <br /> Tonkoko White Russian &#8211; idea and most of the recipe from Brew York (their version is a bit fancier and massively recommended)<br /> 25ml vodka<br /> 25ml Kahlua/Tia Maria<br /> Dash of cocoa bitters<br /> 50ml Brew York Tonkoko (Brew York use the imperial version. Any sweet stout would work!)<br /> 100ml milk<br /> &#8211; Simply stir all the ingredients over ice and enjoy as an indulgent treat!<br />Sheffield HopcastnoHalf Pint: March 2019Half Pint: March 2019Adam and James try a cracking line up of beers – from a DDH Pale, to a Strawberry Daiquiri sour, to a New England IPA.

For the first time we do the Hopcast in a live pub environment, at the Devonshire Cat for the Beer Week launch event. It is a bit noisy in the background this month which we’re aware of… we wanted to give it a try in the middle of a pub but we’ll make sure we’re in quieter environments for future episodes. Adam, James, Sean, Laura and our new recruit Russ try four Sheffield beers: Kelham’s Pride; Sheffield Brewery’s Don; Lost Industry’s Emmeline sour and Abbeydale’s Salvation Rocky Road stout. Plus we meet Jack from the Dev Cat and have a special report from the first Indie Beer Feast.
