Hello there, Patron badass. This week the Bearded Brewer (@beardedbrewer87) guts out an episode with Nick and Matt.
We talk about more beer soon to show up in town. The new trend of breweries having tap-takovers at OTHER breweries. Plus more craft beer culture talk. There is also listener voicemails, what we’ve been caught drinking, bottle releases for you to ‘look out’ for and plenty of beer drinking.
We get to know what Riley’s is all about and its unique beginnings. We talk about the scary aspects of owning a brewery. We learn some of Mike’s ‘Beerhistory’, We finally get to talk about Firestone Walker “teaming up” with Duvel. We dream about buying a local pub that’s currently for sale. We point out some bottle releases to ‘look out’ for. We drink beer and have fun!
It’s so damn tasty. At least that’s my memory of it. Talking about Aroma Coma, seasonal IPA from Drake’s Brewing.
It was released over the weekend so you can certainly get it if you’re in the East Bay. Or maybe you’re lucky enough to be a tour stop.
Yeah, this beer is so damn cool it has its own tour. It also has two opening acts: Aroma Therapy (double IPA version) and Aroma Prieta (pale version). Did you see that? The tour stops in the Perfect Pour’s neck-of-the-woods, Clovis.
Coma 2015 is averaging 4 out of 5 stars on Untappd right now. Looking forward to ‘checking in’ to one on the 31st.
We love to throw around beer-geek verbiage on the show. But because of all the drinking, sometimes we forget the ones we made up. So we setup this page to keep tabs and give newbie listeners some background.
Some are made up by us (denoted with an *). Some are known geek terms that we overuse use on the show. Some of the definitions may not be accurate to the outside beer world, but they are how we use them.
Ticker: That dude that loves to rattle off all the different beers he’s tried. “Oh I’ve had that one. I though it was alright.”
*Do You Even _____, Bro?: What’s better than Bro humor? We did it first, dammit! …alright, not first. But we’ve made it our own.
Shower Beer: Yeah, you guessed it. It’s a beer you’d take in the shower with you. We now have listeners calling from their shower so … we’ve made it?
*I Love GoooOOlld!: Yep. It’s from Austin Power’s “Goldmember”. Yes it’s dorky. Yes it’s funny (to us anyway). We use it every time we open a beer on the show.
*Situational Beer: You’re at a bar, party, wedding, restaurant and they don’t have anything you like to drink. But they have beer. And you really want a beer. The situation calls for one, no matter how bad.
*Hey Guys! Can You Hear Me? I’m Drivin’!: It’s what Scotty B says every time he calls the show as, yes you guessed it, he’s driving. It’s morphed into other callers using it do. We think it’s pretty fucking sweet.
There’s more but … can’t really remember them right now because beer. If you’ve got one we use on the show you think should be included, let us know.
