Welcome to episode 399. You are cool if ya listen.
Don’t forget this episode. Yes, episode 400 is next which would make it so easy to let this one die. But no, ’cause we talk about places we are going to drink at once it’s safe, dream brewery colabs, beer pairings, loosening restrictions and info on what we are doing for Episode 400!
Listeners share some details about their Tavour and other online beer subscriptions. We talk Zappa, Tioga expanding its reach, wonder is Boston Beer Company should still be Indie, begin Celebration Batch Watch, and a bunch more beer geeky things!
Bumping beers off the shelf and having fun. That’s what we try to do all the weeks. This one is no different.
Thankfully, Stone Brewing is giving us more things to talk about, and there are definitely things. Mikey enters the ‘stout layer’, a listener gets a porch bomb for his good show deeds, Who is the Shout Out of the week, and MANY other fun beer things.
We get higher than an airplane, one more time tonight!:
Dave Ramsey is not going to like this movement. It seems that some taprooms are becoming ‘card only’, meaning they are not handling any cash. Are you okay with this?
Some other things that happen this week: One of us has their first Pliny The Younger experience, Modern Times & Mumford battle for a reco, Paul goes back to the bumper music studio, we try to figure out where you listen to the show and much more beer geek fun-times!
For some reason this year, I guess, somebody thought Fresno is part of SF Beer Week and dropped off some Heady Topper. So we decided to pit it against a local Hazy DIPA, Tioga Sequoia’s Tecumseh Of Rivia! How does it hold up? Listen in.
We fit in some more fun stuff, including, one of our Show Reps has noticed an odd and slightly hilarious thing happening on Untappd lately. And we have more options for games to play while drinking.
This beer battle station is fully operational this week!
How can Tree House Brewing be the #1 most checked-in brewery on Untappd this Summer? Do their fans go through an Untappd training course or something? Are they just that damn good? We’ll try to figure out this and more beer things.
I don’t think we drank any Russian River beer this week. Huh. Well, that’s fine, we’re still going to drink plenty of good beer. And talk. Talk about beer geeky things. And talk about someone getting drunk in a Target fitting room. Oh, and one of the interesting things that happens is, Matt makes us drink some things we would not like to drink. What a jerk. He does advise us of the most affordable places (with a good beer scene) to be.
