Highly ABNORMAL Craft Beer Drinking: Perfect Pour #137

137

Indie beer people are a small group. Not big. Small. They need your support. If you don’t feel like supporting independent stuff, just at least leave the people that do, alone.

We talk about this and some other craft beer culture news. Plus: What is the best beer bar in your state?

We are then joined by Derek Gallanosa, Head Brewer at Abnormal Beer Company. He’s a pretty awesome guy. We talked about a lot of beer stuff. Some of them this:

  • The amazing craft beer life that a brewer in San Diego can have.
  • Converting people to craft beer.
  • Do brewers look at your Untappd reviews of their beer.
  • Getting hops from Big Beer.
  • Tells some pretty awesome stories. Along with one that involves a prominent Perfect Pour listener.

Lots of IPA related drinking happens as we give you some beers to look out for and talk about beers we drank.

Oh, and there are a lot of voicemails. LOTS of voicemails.

The Chase For 1000 Craft Beers – Perfect Pour #136

pour136

This week we learn we now have to keep our IPAs under 30 days? Crap.

The term “indie” in beer doesn’t sit well with everybody. And by the way, just so you know: Indie Beer + Indie Beer = Indie Beer. IT HAS BEEN DECIDED!

Mikey is four ‘distinct check-ins’ away from 1000. Yes, he may finally be hitting puberty. Does he make it to 1000 before the show is over?

Voicemails? Oh we got listener voicemails, people. Sadly some dumbass (Mikey) forgot to play Cody’s for two weeks straight, but there are still plenty to listen to.

Something for you the listener to take with you: We need a name for Scotty B’s IPA he’s brewing without hops. Name it!

People Are Getting Very Un-Craft Beer About Things: Perfect Pour #135

perfectpour135

Well, #IndieBeer is still causing a ruckus. People don’t seem to understand why a person would want to choose a good independent brewer over a macro or buyout brewer. We don’t understand why people think that’s dumb. The struggle is real.

The show is still getting a strong amount of listener voicemails, it’s damn near taking over things. We are pretty ok with that.

Plus, beers to look out for and beers we were caught drinking in the past week. AND Mikey is tempted buy a Ballast Point can.

You Don’t Get To Have Everything, Macro Beer!: Perfect Pour #134

 

134

This week on the show, we finally tell our side of the Big #IndieBeer Battle of 2016. Sorry, you don’t get to be cool, Big Beer, and we’re going to give you some shit about it.

It’s always fun when we get to sink our teeth into a topic we are passionate about and we are definitely passionate about beer.

There’s some other stuff too.

Did we get tickets to Firestone Walker Invitational? Maybe… but we give some tips for those that want to show up in town but don’t have tickets. What happens when your taproom doesn’t have a permit for guest taps? Beers to look out for and we long for the days of crank calling.

Stay to the end for your Barly cheers… Wait, WHAT!? This episode is over two hours? That’s so indie.
