You may find that there is a portion of this episode that has too many Star Wars sound effects. But don’t let the hate flow through you, there are plenty of beer things to talk about as we get ready for Tioga’s “Rush Day” and Linefest AND the 1st Anniversary of Zack’s Brewing.
Plus, we review Untappd’s new update, rant about beer things, listen to lots of great listener voicemails and we celebrate the end of the Brew 4 Chew Strike!
This beer battle station is fully operational this week!
How can Tree House Brewing be the #1 most checked-in brewery on Untappd this Summer? Do their fans go through an Untappd training course or something? Are they just that damn good? We’ll try to figure out this and more beer things.
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.
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!
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.
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.
