This week we are joined by Golden Beer God, Tony Bagz, and owner of Libertine Brewing, Tyler Clark. These two love great great beer and know how to talk about it in a way we’ve never heard on the Perfect Pour before.
We’re going to learn about working in the industry, brewing, getting beer on grocery shelves and hear the story of how you open a small, bold, eclectic, unique brewery. Tyler and Tony put it out there and don’t hold back.
PLUS our boy Tony Bagz! It’s so freaking awesome to have Tony finally in the studio!!
And let’s not forget, Ballast Point has a big shakeup and it fuels several discussions about Buyout Beer and what it is doing to the industry of craft beer. This gets very real.
Please excuse the length and give this one a listen!
Tonight, on a very special episode of Blossom, Blossom reveals that she has never drank a Pliny…WAIT no, this is the Perfect Pour, a craft beer show. Not a spunky early 90s sitcom.
But this is a very special episode. Our guests this week are none other than listeners and experienced beer enthusiasts: Fontana Jim and Paul In Fairfax. THATS RIGHT! Jim and Paul are live and in the studio! Not only that, the Footon 55 has a couple of guests too!
It’s pretty damn rad to be able to talk and share some good beer with good folks. Thanks for sticking with the show and having fun with us.
Welp. We have a lot of beer to drink so let’s get to it!:
Sit back and have an old Modern Times with us as we catch up with the world of craft beer as we drink a nice mix of beer. One of those beers might be the most interesting we’ve had in some time.
The feedback continues! Feedback of what we’ve been doing wrong on the show and what we’ve been doing wrong. PLUS, drinking straight from a can AND what’s the deal with Clown Shoes? Something weird is going on there.
Also: Why don’t beer geeks get crazy about grain bills like they do about hops? What’s the deal with Clown Shoes? Something weird is going on there.
This week we dial back our podcast silly and get back to basics: talking about and drinking, craft beer. Yep, we candidly discuss why listeners are complaining of bad batches of podcast. Plus plenty of bottle and can openings in the middle of our classic beer segments and a thorough break-down of how a “pour your own beer” system works.
If you have dumped us lately, maybe try us this week and see if we’re tweaking the podcast recipe just right.
There is a new wave of self-pour beer places happening. Sounds kinda awesome to be able to pour your own beer. Hasn’t that always been the dream? To be able to jump behind the bar and pour all the beer you want?
Well it’s a reality now and maybe it’s not such a great thing. We bring back Rad Stacey from New Belgium (plus the awesome Shana Shamalamadingdong of GoldStein’s) to help us break down that topic.
They also help us drink a lot of beer! Namely New Belg’s Fat Tire & Friends 12-pack. Plus they teach us what a “clam jam” is and we listen to a new song from Paul In Fairfax (that is pretty RAD), press Stacey for New Belgium buyout news, and lots of voicemail!
*Editor’s note: Sorry in advance for all the “talking over each other” you will have to endure this week. It’s the price you pay when you party and podcast. And yes, there will be crotch references.
