FInally got some time to edit and upload these 2. Episode 1 was lost due to the issues we’ve been having with the software we’ve been using, but it looks to be sorted now, so heres a short one to whet your appetite for the next ones coming your way.

Chris and Owen review a commercial beer each, it was late on a thursday so just a quick one, it was a school night after all, hopefully this should get you in the mood for the next one coming in about 20 mine time.

Enjoy!

Apologies

Guys, firstly an apology, we’ve not been updating stuff. We have had some issues with recording software, but I’m also having some issues with my software and logons for the website to be able to upload things.

I think I’ve found the issue and I think its been resolved, but we still havent had the time to edit the latest episode of the podcast and get the audio up and online. I should be able to do this on friday evening with a little luck.

Please accept our apologies and we’re trying to get better, trying to find the time to be able to sort all these things with schools having gone back and external pressures on our time.

We’ll be back. Promise.

Owen went on holiday for this one, so we needed someone with as sexy a voice, and as good a knowledge of beer, so we subbed in Chris Harrison-Hawkes AKA Harrybrew for a pod. This one should give you an insight into the world of commercial and homebrew recipe development, and how you can hone a recipe in to give you what you want.

The start of The Hop Addition’s merch line!

So we’re starting small, I have a limited run of Fridge magnets which are available. I’ll be getting some other stuff done soon, but in the interests of checking the waters, I decided fridge magnets would stick to kegerators and keezer alike so I went with them.

If you want a fridge magnet, then you can send a PayPal payment to us Pm me for the address, trying to avoid the spam bots here… Friends and family or please cover the fees. The cost of them is £1.80 and that includes 2nd class postage to the UK. If you’re abroad and would like one, then PM me first and I’ll check the postage rates to wherever you are in the world.

They are rather cool, and the numbers are limited in the first instance, and prices may go up due to Brexit when I do a reorder. Please bear that in mind. Check back for more merch as and when I get it all sorted and on stream.

Love yas, even the shandy drinking southerners…. 😜😜
