With Matt out on “beard leave” Mikey and Nick have to pull in somebody big to entertain the listeners. How about SCOTTY B!? Plus home-brewer and possibly about to start a legit brewery guy, Matt Vaught!
Plenty of homebrew will be poured but don’t worry, we still mix in our normal craft beer geek talk, drinking and listener voicemails. We’ll give you some beer to look out for, report on some of the best beer we drank in the past week, play games with our beers and have such bad mic problems it just might shut the show down.
Tonight, on a very special episode of Blossom, Blossom reveals that she has never drank a Pliny…WAIT no, this is the Perfect Pour, a craft beer show. Not a spunky early 90s sitcom.
But this is a very special episode. Our guests this week are none other than listeners and experienced beer enthusiasts: Fontana Jim and Paul In Fairfax. THATS RIGHT! Jim and Paul are live and in the studio! Not only that, the Footon 55 has a couple of guests too!
It’s pretty damn rad to be able to talk and share some good beer with good folks. Thanks for sticking with the show and having fun with us.
Welp. We have a lot of beer to drink so let’s get to it!:
You’re going to have to indulge us this week. We go into a local rabbit hole about one of our favorite pizza and beer places moving to a new location.
It’s cool though, outside of that, we got all the classic indie craft beer drinking and talking we have every week. And listener voicemails, never forget the voicemails. PLUS!: our Been Caught Drinking segment goes metal.
Ohhhhh yeah, before I forget: WE DRINK CHOCOTASO! That’s right: Chew Your Beer
Where is your ‘sweet spot’ of alcohol in a IPA? Is it 6.7%? 7.2%? We may try to figure this out.
Also this week: Untappd becomes a ‘buyout app’, some sad local beer news, what it sounds like when a tangent happens within’ a tangent, ‘look out’ for some new indie beer hitting the market, listen to a lot of voicemails and express a desire for indie canned water.
But most importantly: we have fun drinking good beer.
We debate whether crowlers are better than growlers. We give tips on drinking mosaic featured IPAs (spoiler alert: drink them quickly). We listen to voicemails. We look out for beers for YOU to look out for. We also drink too much indie beer (is that possible?), so thing kinda get loud and out-of-hand at times – just to warn ya.
Ohhh and Matt had to leave a major bottle share to record this episode … so like … recognize that … or something.
