#TwubQuiz World Championship

Morning all!

The big day has finally arrived.  At 9pm tonight we will be live on youtube at the following link:

The format of the #TwubQuiz will be very much like that of the usual Tuesday night quiz.  10 Questions, one posted every 5 minutes between 10:15 and 11:00.  However, while you answer the polls on Twitter, a panel of the greatest beery minds will be live on YouTube attempting to answer the very same questions.  I will be monitoring the answers and from within this elite group, a champion will emerge!

Who are the contestants?

One half of the #Hopinions team  @BeerOClockShow

The UK’s No1 beer blogger @MarkNJohnson

The right honourable @TheAleLady


Leeds finest, Gareth @barrelagedleeds

And finally, our international contestant, all the way from Ireland, Wayne @IrishBeerSnob

It’ll be a lot of fun folks, be sure to tune in!

24 beer reviews in 24 hours – Itinerary

With just a week to go, the sense of anticipation is growing.  This started out as abit of a laugh, I never thought it would actually be possible! Ha ha!  But here we are and yeah, its about to get real!

9pm: Official launch.  We will be live on our newly founded YouTube channel to chat through what lies ahead.

10pm: The Inaugral #TwubQuiz World Championships will be held with a selection of our keenest contestants battling it out live before the nation, again on our youtube channel

12pm: Once the fun of the #TwubQuiz settles down I will firing up our hot liquor tank to start brewing.  This may go on for many hours, so I would welcome anyone who fancies keeping me company would be most welcome! I’ll probably jump on Periscope aswell as the YouTube stream so you can chat.

Also in this time I will be preparing various beery foodstuff to sustain me through the rest of the challenge!

9am: Parkrun – Newcastle town moor.  I’ve never done the run before but will have loyal listener Charlie helping me round!  He’ll also be reviewing a beer with me before we set off.

1pm: I’m reviewing a beer with Gary, better known to you all as @TheAleTrail on Twitter.

2pm: I’ll be pulling pints behind the bar in the Free Trade Inn , come along and test my pouring skills!

3pm: I’m off to meet my good friend Ruari to review a beer in an amazing location.  This one is truly amazing!

5pm: I’ll be in The Bridge Tavern reviewing a beer with Bearded bar chief, Jack!

7pm: I will be heading to Coppers for the final few beer reviews.  Come down and join me and help me through the final stages of my challenge!

Naturally it goes without saying that I have a few surprises up my sleeves, but all will be revealed on the day.  Keep your eyes peeled for our various social media channels for updates throughout the challenge. Plan is to have as much as possible broadcast throughout the day via one medium or another so you can check up on my progress!

Also, come and find us! We’ll be selling raffle tickets for the chance to win an incredible selection of beer kindly donated by various people, all in aid of Cancer Research UK.  A worthy cause and you could walk away with an incredible stash of beer!

First thoughts

Hello and welcome.  We are very excited about the podcast.  Its a whole new step of exploration for each of us.

To give you all abit of background, Myles has been a beer geek for a good few years and has been blogging under Drinking got me thinking…

In contrast Rob is relatively new to good beer.  After 12 months of bugging Myles about beer geek facts, this podcast developed as a way for recording the journey the two lads make together.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the level of support and best wishes we’ve received, and as a result a lot of potential fun has opened up as possibilities for the show.  Expect to see some really interesting features in future shows!  But for now, while we get used to the technology, we’re keeping the first show simple.  Just two lads having a good chat about good beer!

Hope you enjoy the show!
