Yes. We already know Ballast Point sold their soul to Big Beer. It’s beer geek freakout time, bro! Really, it’s just sad.
Not sad for the owners of Ballast Point. Not sad for the employees of Ballast Point. But maybe sad for craft beer. Or what we and Three B Zine are now calling craft beer: Indie Beer.
So yeah, we’re going to tackle the whole Ballast Point thing. And maybe explore the notion that the Craft Beer Bubble everyone talks about? Yeah it’s not craft beer’s popularity ending but Big Beer buying up so much craft that we don’t know where the lines are anymore and everyone just says “Fuck it!” “Beer is beer!”
Somebody named their brewery “Lickinghole” Brewing. Licking. Hole. We talk about that. PLUS! Dave is Back with tacos and beer and we have a new friend, Gabe, bringing stories of Smog City, Beachwood Brewing and Eastside Johnson (among other things).
Lots of fun stuff, lots of craft beer drinking, lots of podcast. Let’s get to it!:
There was a huge blind taste test by Paste Magazine to determine the best IPA and your dang skippy we are going to talk about that! What’s with that new/old Ballast Point? There is magic growler drinking and the story on how we got it. There may or may not be some Fresno and Space Ghost tangents within’ episode, so, sorry? There is more more more craft beer nerding! Watch our for Tiguns and check it out:
How did Bells (Dorktown Podcast) get back on the show again? He brought a Citra. A Kern River Citra IPA. That’s how you get back on the Perfect Pour so fast. We enjoy that and plenty of other craft beers. We of course talk about the now infamous Budweiser commercial. More beer drinking, Sally Fields experiments, is Modern Times coming or not? Listener voicemail, Been Caught Drinkin’ and Lookin’ Out! Frankly, there is all kinds of beer talk, just how we like it.
