The 13th Doctor (or 15th)

It was a very British day yesterday with the Mens final match at Wimbledon followed immediately thereafter with the long awaited announcement via a teaser trailer of who would take the acting reins from Peter Capaldi and be the next Doctor Who.

Congrats to Jodie Whittaker and new showrunner Chris Chibnall. Let’s hope they can bring a steady hand to a series that had some highs and lows the past three years.

Now Game of Thrones has a whole range of beers, and I think it is high time for Doctor Who to get a few themselves.

Here are some suggestions for the BBC to ponder….

Darillium Sparkling Ale – a light fizzy golden ale made with champagne yeast.

Missy’s Extra Special Stab in the Back Bitter – a light cask ale dry hopped with Galaxy

Companion Kolsch – light and refreshing and perfect to spend time with

Souffle Girl – a nitro cream ale that puffs up with a foamy head.

Sonic Screwdriver Session IPA – a loud blast of hops that will open up taste buds but not wooden doors.

The Original, You Might Say – a thoroughly English “tele” porter. Quick and dirty like a vortex manipulator.

The Doctor has Landed (Again)

Tonight Peter Capaldi’s Doctor lands the TARDIS into a new season….

So, what beer will I be drinking as I watch where Clara, The resurrected Mistress and special guests and monsters go to to find Gallifrey?

Other than this mythical beer…

The easy places to start with would be the Ninkasi Space Beer or anything Scottish to match the brogue of Capaldi. Maybe Paradox from BrewDog. Even easier would be Two-Hearted IPA from Bell’s.

Or you could go historical and find your oldest beer in the cellar to make your own brewing time travel trip.

I haven’t decided what I will drink but the whatever the bottle is, it will be exterminated.
