We still are talking about Sierra Nevada’s “Resilience IPA” and what it means to the Craft Beer Community. It’s too damn cool to not keep talking about it! Think of it: we will be able to do side-by-sides of our favorite breweries take on the same beer!
Plus, somehow there is a beer awards show buried in the episode, romantic beers and a lot more beer talk!!
Don’t forget the Show Within’ The Show, aka Listener Voicemails.
WATCH IT! This episode has no doors or windows, you’ll have problems finding a way out.
We triple batched this episode with Nelson Hops and Pliny talk to keep it beer geeky fresh. Speaking of beer geek talk, we reveal what the hottest new beer in the country and give a MAJOR Tap Room Update that relates to a listener of the show.
There is a lot more fun than that, please give us a listen and find out.
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.
Welcome once again to our happy funtime craft beer show!
Matt is back from California Craft Brewers Summit and has a story or two.
Russian River is brewing at their new facility, will we get some more Plinys out of it?
Our first pumpkin beer of the season is opened and Untapped tips are given.
Also, lots of voicemails, beer releases, and many other beer geek things!
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.
