What Is Your Beer Surface Area Like? [Perfect Pour Episode 281]

Midnight Lightning cans

The biggest Beer Geek Day of the year for Fresno is here!

Rush Day from Tigoa Sequoia meets the opening listeners of the Perfect Pour have been waiting years for… Zack’s Brewing! It’s finally here (Saturday) and it’s going to be fun.

A couple of the beer questions we tackle this week:
Have you ever seen a Beer Geek shade is beer from the sun at a Beer Garden?
What are the five biggest cities for breweries?

We have many other craft beer things we must cover as well and many listener voicemail podcasts to listen to. So let’s get to it!

Zack’s Brewing Company in studio with Linefest Beer! [Perfect Pour EP280]

Zack's Brewing in studio

Zack’s Brewing opens their doors for the first time on December 15th in Fresno. The same day at the same time, across the street, Tioga Sequoia Brewing has its Rush Day bottle release event!

It will be a rush of a day for us and Fresno and we have Gail & Steven Zack in the studio to talk about it.

Opening a new brewery comes with many joys and frustrations and we’ll hear about some in this episode – even about working with Untappd and kids & dogs in taprooms.

We don’t forget to do our normal brand of beer geek talk. Like:

  • Are we, in the Craft Beer Community, okay with paying $20 plus for 16oz 4-packs? It’s life now.
  • How do you like your taprooms? Size wise I mean.
  • Why does Budweiser’s BCBS still a Linefest Beer?
  • Lister podcasts, aka Voicemails.

All this and more on this 32oz sized megasode. Enjoy!

Have We Reached Peak Hazy?

This is what we talk about this week on the show, among a lot of other beer geeking:

What is your go-to Mix Pack (or is it variety pack?) to bring on Thanksgiving?

What beer are you most Thankful for?

Hazy beer names and the band “Kansas” somehow come together, look out for that and a lot more indie beer fun!

Listen, yo!

Hop Bullets & Hazy Days! The Perfect Pour #276

Grinder episode. This is a grinder episode: Show up. Drink beer. Podcast. Wait for next week.

The thing to takeaway from this episode is that nobody wants to change the term “Bottle Share” to “Can Share”.  Nobody.

Also, Mikey’s performance was terrible this episode. Just warning you. I blame the cider.

We will explore this and many other beer geek questions on the show this week.

Look out for a new style of playing your voicemails, maybe it’s better, maybe it’s worse, I dunno, you decide.

A Place To Wait Out Craft Beer Trends – The Perfect Pour Beer Geek Show #271

We are entering another Dark Time for craft beer. Brewery closures and cutbacks are the trend, so it’s time to hunker down and wait it out until the next surge.

At least there is a lot of equipment out there to be had for the new breweries that are brave enough to open. And we have a lot more local taprooms than we did before the latest craft beer expansion, so there are places to wait things out.

This episode also has…

Nick went to Seattle and Portland and checked out their beer scenes. It seems nobody has told Seattle that we are in the middle of a Haze Craze and Nick wants everyone to leave them alone.

Taproom hoping with people that are not beer geeks can be fun… until about the third room.

Our 4th and final crowler in our Fieldwork Brewing series is cracked.

There was a Podcast Rep GETIT at Monkish Brewing.

Don’t forget, the Mr. Beer Kit is a system!

  • OKC is coming up in the beer world.
  • A follow up on ChewYourBeer’s story.
