We begin our next beer trek, this one to episode 300, at the start: 201.
This week, we catch up with the latest in craft beer culture, maybe (just maybe) begin a major craft beer movement, start a ‘brewmance’ and drink some amazing beers, all donated by listeners! We have some pretty rad listeners, as you are about to find out. Cheers!
Alright, alright. Things have gotten a little rowdy. Let’s settle down and get back to a classic Perfect Pour episode: beer geek talking, drinking and dreaming.
We talk about getting on the front page of the iTunes Podcast page, THAT episode, the Top 50 Craft Breweries list, new beer releases to Look Out For, play voicemails and figure out the best way to Day Drink.
We get into what the Full Pint recommends for alternatives to Pliny The Younger (of course there’s an issue), more musician beer is coming out, Stone is changing up their pale and Tioga is changing up THEIR’S. We drink beer from Alabama? and a giant Dust Bowl growler while talking about new futuristic growlers that are coming out and more craft beer nerding!
More drinking shenanigans: Did anyone get a winning Citra email? We talk about how Sierra Nevada’s “Hop Hunter” IPA is, ironically, not really an IPA but more like a pale, more craft beer culture, there’s more Patreon begging, more drinking and sharing, a beer related closing in Fresno and much more junk! Listen with the player above or just click the file: perfectpourEP80.mp3 CHEERS!
We go stout heavy in this episode (and there was much rejoicing).
Also: Do you even bother asking for beer on Christmas? We get through what Paste Magazine says is the top 20 new beers of 2014. Top Google searches for beer for 2014. What beers have we Been Caught Drinkin’? We have to wait a year for some new Modern Times beer. We also listen to voicemails: 559-492-0542! Bearded Brewer gives us the lowdown on Rush Day at Tioga Sequoia Brewing and more!!
