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.

Ballast Point Sells and the Bubble Bursts: Perfect Pour #123

123

 

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!”

I don’t know much about much but I do know that drinking good beer with friends is fun. This is what we do this week and all the weeks.

Let’s get Back To The Future in the past and move forward to talk about Ballast Point going public. Plus all the ticking whale hunting drinking (Carrot cake beer and KBS) and looking out for new beer you want and need. Just your usual hang and enjoy craft beer.

If Your Favorite Rock Band Was A Craft Brewer, What Brewery Would It Be?: Perfect Pour #110

110

There seems to be a link between craft beer drinkers and rock/metal fans. Is it the easy going, party hard, enjoy life thing? Is that the link? The rebel, anti-establishment vibe?

Not sure. But this week on the show, we (in a completely not planned or well thought-out way), throw out rock band names and try to pair them with a craft brewer. Good times.

We also drink plenty of beer and give half-cool reviews. Talk about some beer culture, listen to some listener voicemail, make some picks for upcoming beer releases and talk about some good news from our Patreon account!

We had not planned to go through a ton of canned craft beers, but it’s going to happen in this episode and it’s not a bad thing.
