Things That Make Us Beer Geeks: Perfect Pour Craft Beer Show #216

Having a podcast about being a beer geek, that makes you a beer geek, yeah?

This week, we explore the simple list that Beer Advocate put together to help us define if we are truly beer geeks.

Plus, somebody is mad at Modern Times for opening up in Portland, a good friend of the show has now crossed over to the industry side of craft beer, crowlers from THE Silva Brewing and much more.

And as always, you get some beer releases to look out for, find out what we were caught drinking last week, listen to listeners tell us beer junk and we drink plenty of good and not so good, beer!

Craft Beer Will Never Win Without Outback Steakhouse Handles: The Perfect Pour #214


Let’s all try to level up, become a nerd, and get serious about tasting beer! Or maybe we should just do what we always do and drink.

This week our biggest beer question is “Can one be pissed that Outback Steakhouse has no good beer?” We also get metal with some 3 Floyds Beers, mess with beer nerds taking their Cicerone test, look out for some new beer releases, listen to listeners, drink more beer and upset one of our favorite listeners.

Sorry about the crickets. Damn crickets. Have a listen:

Capture Whale Beers With War Pigeons: The Perfect Pour #164


Everyone has a different definition of what a “whale beer” is to them. Some are pretty universal. Like, say, a Pliny or Heady. Some are regional. Some are just personal whalez.

This week we captured several kinds of whale beers. Good good times.

We also talk about our usual craft beer culture topics, give you some beer to look out for and get feedback from listeners. PLUS A NEW SONG FROM “Paul In Fairfax”! And Stick around for a little home brewer hoping to turn pro talk.
