Top 50 IPAs and Bruised Bud Brewer Egos: The Perfect Pour #207


We are back for our weekly rowdy beer geek drink & talk! We touch on many a thing while we drink. Some of them being:

  • There are some Budweiser brewers that think you should not be worried about being Independent.
  • Soon some dude will bring beer to your door soon and you will be passed out.
  • Worst Beer Blog is leading beer social media in shade.
  • Draft Magazine picked 50 of their favorite IPAs and we might have one or two.
  • What beer would you bring on a boat?
  • Paul From Fairfax has a new song that he doesn’t want to be played but we are going to play it anyway.
  • Mikey might have single handily stopped Fieldwork from opening a remote taproom in Fresno.
  • New beer releases to Look Out For.
  • Lots of voicemail fun and more more more!

Let’s ride the hazy train!

Let’s have some FUN with our nerd beers. This week we get into some things like…

  • Matt is off the “Beer Campus” but is still on the show.
  • We try to have some more fun with this year’s Beer Camp 12 pack.
  • Where the hell do some of these “big beers” come from?
  • It’s been fun watching for the beer Easter eggs on HBO’s Silicon Valley this season “805, Bro!”
  • There is an almost life changing voice message from Paul.
  • Beers to look out for.
  • Shady deals for a case of Pliny.
  • Matt totally almost ran into a big beer celebrity, in an alley.

There’s a lot more but that will get ya going. INCLUDING A BONUS CLIP at the end. So let’s start listening!

Bottle Release Of The Week: Drake’s Aroma Coma IPA

It’s so damn tasty. At least that’s my memory of it. Talking about Aroma Coma, seasonal IPA from Drake’s Brewing.

It was released over the weekend so you can certainly get it if you’re in the East Bay. Or maybe you’re lucky enough to be a tour stop.

Yeah, this beer is so damn cool it has its own tour. It also has two opening acts: Aroma Therapy (double IPA version) and Aroma Prieta (pale version).
 Did you see that? The tour stops in the Perfect Pour’s neck-of-the-woods, Clovis.

Coma 2015 is averaging 4 out of 5 stars on Untappd right now. Looking forward to ‘checking in’ to one on the 31st.

Pliny The Younger 2015: Perfect Pour #83


Pliny The Younger. One of the Perfect Pourers braved the line at Russian River this year. Was the Regular Beer Geek experience better or was Younger better being treated as a “industry” person? Greg, The Beerocrat, returns to help us figure this out.

Plus a ton of drinking local talk, listener voicemail, Been Caught Drinking, what’s with Hopslam and more more and more craft beer talk. Thank you for listening!
