All We Are Are Just Ales In The End

Another cautionary beer tail this week as one of us doesn’t take his own advice and buys some un-dated IPAs from a certain place; it could only end badly.

Also, will anyone make a beer-flavored seltzer?

Did you know that beer is NOT a good hydrator?  Yeah, well, a listener found out the hard way.

And Sierra Nevada is pulling back production on a classic beer.

This and a lot more when you listen to episode 415!

Just A Hop In The Dark

Do you see the album art for this episode? A shootout complete with a car mowing down a telephone pole and a fire hydrant causes a total blackout at Mikey’s – where all the recording is happening.

The power went out several times during this episode. Sometimes you can tell, sometimes you can’t. Either way, sorry. We pushed through though.

Beer fun is still had, that is all that matters.

Even Craft Beer Can Be Terrible

Mother Earth “Big Mother” TIPA, Sierra Nevada “Torpedo”, Topa Topa Brewing “Level Line”

https://mcdn.podbean.com/mf/web/zm6sie/perfectpour407.mp3

It has been an eye-opening and disturbing week of news in craft beer. What started as a question by @ratmagnet has turned into one of the biggest things to even hit the craft community.

If you haven’t yet, read the story by Beth Demmon to find out what this is all about. A community that we sorta blindly think is the best around can also be the worst for women to work in.

That fact got dragged into the street this week, for all to see. We do not do it justice on the show, we try but, that’s really all.

There is also our normal beer schtick, but whatever. Please stay safe out there and thanks for the listen!

Beer Status Symbol Unlocked: Direct Print Cans

Dust Bowl Brewing Mega IPA "Prone"
Dust Bowl “Mega IPA – Prone”

Welcome to a craft beer drinking community that likes it hazy AND clear! Here are some examples of some phrases that might show up:

  • No More Parking Lot Tents.
  • Disneyland open for drinking?
  • Direct print cans are a status symbol in beer.
  • Breweries should just have dirt floors.
  • Heavy on the haze there, chief.
  • Volkswagen tangentsare back.
  • Opossums.

Those things and also other things will be heard if you listen:

  • Did Bill & Ted really give Rock & Roll to you?
  • Which coast is hazier?
  • Do you REALLY need quarters for Aldi shopping carts?
  • Are four-packs becoming TOO expensive?
