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.
We’re all searching for the latest haze, a break in this routine.
Talking some new hops, ones like you ain’t never seen.
This is home.
This is Haze Street.
-David Lee Roth (probably)
Ever had a double Brut IPA? We have one on this episode. We have a lot more too. And we talk about the beer things. And hear from listening listeners talk about their beer things. All of this and more will happen if you listen.
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.
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.
