Episode 11 – Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gender Reveal Parties, Life on Venus and Blind Craft Ale Tasting

The 11th episode of the ‘Beer n BS Show’

Gwyneth Paltrow and her completely mental company ‘Goop’ get a hard time in this show. ‘Snake Oil’ healing products and pseudo-science magic potions get discussed whilst Rachel and Geoff go head-to-head on the validity of homeopthy.

We look at the craziness of ‘Gender Reveal Parties’ and touch on the news of possible life found on Venus.

As ever we blind taste a few craft ales and sidetrack down a few rabbit holes during the show.

Aaron’s Beer Suggestion:

  • Tynt MeadowMount Saint Bernard Abbey (English Trappist Ale) – 7.4% ABV
    Trappist beers tend to be named after the place in which the monastery is situated. We’ve called ours ‘Tynt Meadow’, to honour the link with the plot of land on which monastic life was refounded here in the Midlands almost two centuries ago. Being part of the great Trappist tradition, we’ve chosen to produce a strong dark ale, but one with a clearly English character.Tynt Meadow is mahogany-coloured, with a subtle, warm red hue, and a lasting beige head. Its aroma carries hints of dark chocolate, liquorice, and rich fruit flavours. The beer is full-bodied, gently balancing the taste of dark chocolate, pepper, and fig. It leaves a warm and dry finish on the palate.
