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!

Post GABF 2018 Report | The Perfect Pour Episode 270

As much as we love gold, we did not win any at GABF. But we had “people” there. People like “Jake From State Farm”. He (along with some other listeners) was actually there and gives us a post GABF report as he fills in for the vacationing, Nick.

Stout Season Begins [Yep, we said “Season”]: The Perfect Pour #267

It’s NIck’s favorite beer time of the year: Narwhal Season.

That’s right, this week we go hunting for elusive imperial stouts because it is that time of year.

Also we discuss these beer things

Are you “pretzel necklace guy” at beer festivals? None of us are.

A big topic that is not getting talked about enough in the craft beer world: We have lost the restaurant game. It seems to only be getting tougher and tougher to find craft beer when going out to restaurants and it sucks.

Also this week, Untappd did an update to the app that added a new feature that is going to piss off some breweries.

Time to listen to all the beer things

That and more on this week’s Perfect Pour!!

It’s The Haze Craze Show! Also Known As The Perfect Pour 266

Perfect Pour 266 album art

We are here for beer stories as we start with one and move into the two hours of beer geeking from there. Including a bad Total Wine service story.

Hope you are ready to have fun with us and listen.

Oh yeah, Lagers all day on this episode too. Just kidding, there is only one lager. It’s not a weak lager but we do hear about weak ones from Paul. This is a roundabout way of saying a new Paul song might have broken the show.

Hey, look! A new show-notes feature!: Voicemails start at 30:15 mark and they end at the 1:35:40 mark. Wow. That’s a lot of voicemail time. Do with this information as you see fit.
