Episode 15: who are you, Archimedes?

It’s song writing business as usual at 2 Songs 2 Beers Towers

Beer talk, song writing talk (including a new song which Mike has brought to the band), and Spotify recommendations fill this episode to the frothy brim.

This episode also features the second only time the hallowed 5 frothy picks were awarded to an exceptional beer!

Episode 14: Highway to Hellyer

The 2 songs 2 beers posse hit the road

We head to Sussex for a retrospective roadtrip to meet the man that inspired this podcast, Mike’s Dad, Tony Hellyer. So that’s why we called this episode: Highway to Hellyer! We load up the van with our gear and some recording equipment and head down to have a day of jamming and recording at Mike’s parent’s place.

Episode 13: Music and Beer Chat with Signature Brew’s Tom Bott

They like beer and music, we like music and beer. Its no wonder we got on like a house on fire with Signature Brew Director, Tom Bott.

In this awesome episode we got to meet and chat with Signature brew Director, Siba board of trustees member and all round very nice guy and best friend of the podcast (he hasn’t agreed to that yet), Tom Bott.  

Episode 12: Song writing with Grapefruit Fran

The band get back together after the Christmas break to talk about Scottish beers.

In this episode the guys talk through the song writing process for their first ever song, titled “Half the Devil”.

Episode 11: The Family Christmas Special

Christmas is a time for family and friends…and beer!

We all met up in Colin’s house to have a little shindig with good food, good beer and good company.

Proper Christmas traditions of playing games, singing and allowing the little ones to stay up late were all observed!

Episode 10: Beer tasting & music chat with New Zealand Beer Collective

The guys get in an expert to teach them and you, the listener, how to taste beer properly.

Joseph Hurst is the Head of Beer for New Zealand Beer Collective. As well being a beer aficianado he also has a fervent love of music.

Episode 9: He’s a bit of a Barley Wine

We get out of the rehearsal studios and go to the pub.

No Barley wine was drunk during the recording of this episode. We go to the pub to chat about the beers we’ve ordered, the music they’re listening to at the moment and also try to come up with a band name.

Episode 8: I like Genesis

DeWolff at Shoreditch Blues Kitchen

The band go on an outing to Blues Kitchen Shoreditch to see Dutch psychedelic blues rock outfit, DeWolff.

We talk about the time Colin became the unexpected third wheel on a date, Paul Simon renditions in the middle of Shoreditch and we catch up on the names you suggested for our latest Twitter poll.

The super awesome bonus episode

Welcome to the cutting room floor…

This is a super awesome bonus episode featuring most of the covers we’ve done so far along with some original riffs, unheard beer reviews and a rant on the North American pronunciation of aluminium.

We have to cut so much from episodes, Mostly Mike saying ‘um’ 30 to 40 times in a sentence, or Colin’s ear-splitting laugh, so here is the stuff that was good but we jus didn’t have time to put in to any episodes. 

Episode 7: Howling in the Key of Mango

Band practice takes on a distinctly Icelandic beer theme when Conor brings back some ÚLFRÚN from Iceland’s  Borg Brugghús.

It’s a face off between two beers, so, a beer off. England Vs Iceland. What will the outcome be? Will it mirror the humiliating knock out of Euro 2016?

We also discuss the names of our previous bands and start throwing out ridiculous name ideas for the 2 songs 2 beers band.
