Episode 4: The Lion, The Jim and The Holy Pale


Spring has nearly sprung so welcome to our Pale Ale edition – reviewing four beers which might just be the perfect first ‘outside’ drink of the year!

Our venue is the White Lion on London Road and we meet Jon and his team.

Adam, James, Sean, Rich and Laura-substitute Jim try Cloudwater’s Small Loral Pale, The Kernel’s Sticklebract Pale, High Wire from Magic Rock and O/O’s Pretty.

We hear about final orders for a Sheffield brewery and discuss the saturation of the craft beer market.

Plus we catch up with Neepsend Brew Co for this month’s Meet The Brewer.

We’d love your feedback – follow @SheffHopcast, search us on Facebook, or email beer@sheffieldhopcast.co.uk
