Hop Burns & Black presents Rock the Mash Tun; conversations about beer and music and everything in between.

This episode features Paul Jones, co-founder of Cloudwater Brew Co. Over the course of the show (recorded in front of a live beer shop audience), we drink some of Paul's all-time favourite beers, listen to tracks that reflect Paul's beery journey, and hear fascinating insights from the chap heading up one of the most exciting breweries on the planet.

Manchester, So Much To Answer For

We held one of our favourite events yet at the shop on Thursday night - the latest instalment in our No More Heroes series with beer writer Matthew Curtis of Total Ales. This time we were joined by Marble head brewer James Kemp, who made the journey down from Manchester to take part in a tasting session of six of his favourite beers and a live interview for a forthcoming podcast.

The beers were terrific, the craic was strong and the topics of discussion wide and varied, with Matt and the audience grilling James on everything from murky beers ("no") to sexist beer marketing ("no") and Dobber ("I thought you weren't going to mention Dobber").

You'll be able to hear the full podcast soon at Total Ales. In the meantime, here's a photographic taster of the night. Details of the next event coming soon.
