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.
Sorry. We have been talking a lot of Russian River Brewing lately but you have to understand, we have waited a long time to be able to get Pliny and the rest of the core RR beers. As we stand at the edge of greatness, we take it in – that said, we had a Happy Hops IPA and not a Pliny…go figure.
We don’t just talk about Fresno becoming a Russian River town. There are plenty of other beer geeky things to talk about, and we have our first Urban Roots CROWLER on the show. Will it live up to our urban dreams?
I know. I know, Boston Beer Company bought Dogfish Head. But we’re not about that because it has not happened yet. We are about what we are about this week and we are all about it.
Anywaysss. We didn’t pour any beer over ice but we have a nice enough show for you. We do a little discussing of what went wrong with the Untappd Beer festival and a whole lotta other nerdyass beer geek stuff.
Bend the knee, other beer podcasts. We have hit 300 episodes and that means we have become the rightful heir to the Podcast Throne. But instead of a throne made of the swords of our conquered enemies, it’s a throne made of all the cans of beer we’ve drank over the years.
YOU HEARD ME! Bend the knee or die in open combat on the bloody podcast fields.
After you do that, please join us as we take LIVE calls from listeners and enjoy an Imperial Stout sized voicemail segment as we reflect on 300 shows while still doing our normal brand of indie beer podcasting.
We are hoppy [sorry] to have back, Roger from Pine & Palm Brewing. He’s going to give us all some advice about starting a brewery and let us in on what’s going down during the brewery’s three-year anniversary party [LINEFEST ALERT!].
Plus, all our usual hijinks of being beer idiots. It’ll be fun, trust me.
Sorry about this week’s crap audio. Let’s call it “hazy audio” and maybe it will go down better.
Yeah, a couple of things to Look Out for, Untappd disappointed with some news, everyone is going to start counting beer calories, Beer Instagram is not perfect, we welcome the rest of the world to the fact that Craft Beer has been making Cereal Beer for quite some time AND a whole lot more things.
Please try to enjoy the hazy audio. We promise to do better.
Your listenership is awesome and you should feel pretty damn good about yourself.
