Rhythm and Brews is the craft beer and music pairing podcast. In each episode we match four interesting beers with music as a way of helping to enhance flavours using your years. It's a bit like pairing wine with food, but with a much higher level of audio satisfaction.
Featuring great guests from the UK and international beer scenes, we taste, debate and discover great beer alongside great music.
Andrew and Luke sit down to discuss what will be 'trendy' and 'hip' in beer and music in 2019. But mostly beer, because they are both old and not 'lit'. Topics include alcoholic water, the supremacy of lager tops and Andrew's ability to dad joke.
Disclaimer: Sorry for the audio quality on this one! We had a new audio setup and couldn't figure out how to stop the buzzing, and did what we could in editing. Next month will be better!
Beers matched include:
- North Brewing x Left Handed Giant x 6 degrees north x Track Brewing - Small Stout (Small Vanilla Milk Stout)
- Yeastie Boys x Cigar City - Brewing With Wayne (Lichtenhainer)
- Evil Twin Brewing - Wet Dream (American Brown Ale)
- Pilot Beer - Buzz (Imperial Honey Saison)
Thank you to Mawkin for the use of their song, I Can Hew, for our theme!
Andrew and Luke sit down, match some Christmas beers, talk about depression (serious bit), talk about how shit Winter Warmers are (not serious bit) and match the song chosen by YOU to some beer...
Luke and Andrew look back over 2018 and pick 4 of their favourite beers from the year and discuss what deserves a top rating, how pissed you need to be to rate it and how much of a crime it is that Tom Waits hasn't released anything in 2018.
Andrew and Luke are joined by Paul Wade, from Brutalligators and Wade Bros Productions, to do an on-air pub crawl through the iconic music venues of Camden, London, from Amy Winehouse's watering hole (spoiler: it's every pub apparently) to the fact that Oasis are terrible (sorry Paul)
Andrew and Luke are turning Japanese and proving that everyone was kung-fu fighting, with this special episode dedicated to Japanese beers. Domo Arigato Mr Roboto.

Luke and Andrew are joined by Luke's mum for an evening of weird and wonderful beers, and Andrew teaches two philistines (or one and his mum) how to properly taste beer.
