Episode #7 Dan Bejar's on the beer

Two fantastic beers and some great music on ATH in this ep

This week on your favourite beer n' music podcast we discuss how South Americans forego the lisp, very average London coffee with a safety lid, why we'd have to sit down to get through a Bill Callahan gig these days and why this week's beers as good as Bruce Springsteen and Destroyer.

There's a hard baked snack of the week and a game of Beer or Owl or Trowel, which features the excellently named Combat Wombat.

Our two beers are the incredible Verdant Headband and Salt Beer Factory's killer brew Citra Neipa.

Music comes from BITW and The James Clarke Five.

Episode #6 - From Welsh Castles to Wainwright

A local world beater v a divisive classic golden

Episode six asks many questions of you:

Like are Welsh castles good for killing time with children? And is Killing Eve any good? Why don't you see Castlemaine XXXX any more? What is the most gammon-y sport? Would you drink a 5,000 year old beer?

There is Huw's recipe for his own take on Corn Beef Hash.

For our beer match-up a couple of British classics go head to head: it's Wainwright's Golden Ale v Robinson's Old Tom (Ginger variety).

There's a stone cold American classic for our snack of the week.

Music is recent offerings from Wrexham's Eitha Da and Sunderland's Roxy Girls.

Get hold of them both on Bandcamp:

Episode #4 - A Bulbasaur. From the Kanto Region!

Beer match is Oakham Ales v Tiny Rebel

Episode four of At The Hop is, frankly a delight.

That's if you think two middle-aged men barely navigating the world of Pokemon, fart gags and a visit to Newport is delightful. We also decide what is the Ed Sheeran of cheeses and make it very clear that you can't give booze to a baby.

The beer match-up is Oakham Ales' Best Friend Session IPA v Tiny Rebel's Gin & Juice Botanical Pale Ale.

There's also a snack of the week from Ireland and another game of beer or owl?

Music is the latest offerings from Silent Forum and Calexico and Iron & Wine.

Get hold of the new Silent Forum on Bandcamp here: https://silentforum.bandcamp.com/ Calexico and Iron & Wine's 'Midnight Sun' is out on June 14th on City Slang.
