WARNING! You may want to find a Hamm’s beer after listening to this.
Crack it open! Let’s have some beers! At least listen to us have some beers with Hops Cascade! Yep, Hops Cascade shows up to drink with us. Who is Hops Cascade? He’s nobody, we made him up. But he is still in this episode.
Speaking of the episode, we are going to have all our usual hang-out fun with our craft beers, we love them so. We are going to talk about some craft beer culture news (good job Modern Times). We are going to listen to people call us and make fun of us. We are going to talk about beer releases you should look out. We are going to drink gold.
This suddenly became a great week for IPAs… this should be good, lots to drink. In that IPA cache we got a slight Whale Beer, break down some new fall variety 12-packs, talk about a local bottle release event, drink drink drink, listen to voicemails and dream about new beers.
The question to ask yourself before listening: How will a Aerosmith ballad factor in to this week’s show? Let’s find out!
We love to throw around beer-geek verbiage on the show. But because of all the drinking, sometimes we forget the ones we made up. So we setup this page to keep tabs and give newbie listeners some background.
Some are made up by us (denoted with an *). Some are known geek terms that we overuse use on the show. Some of the definitions may not be accurate to the outside beer world, but they are how we use them.
Ticker: That dude that loves to rattle off all the different beers he’s tried. “Oh I’ve had that one. I though it was alright.”
*Do You Even _____, Bro?: What’s better than Bro humor? We did it first, dammit! …alright, not first. But we’ve made it our own.
Shower Beer: Yeah, you guessed it. It’s a beer you’d take in the shower with you. We now have listeners calling from their shower so … we’ve made it?
*I Love GoooOOlld!: Yep. It’s from Austin Power’s “Goldmember”. Yes it’s dorky. Yes it’s funny (to us anyway). We use it every time we open a beer on the show.
*Situational Beer: You’re at a bar, party, wedding, restaurant and they don’t have anything you like to drink. But they have beer. And you really want a beer. The situation calls for one, no matter how bad.
*Hey Guys! Can You Hear Me? I’m Drivin’!: It’s what Scotty B says every time he calls the show as, yes you guessed it, he’s driving. It’s morphed into other callers using it do. We think it’s pretty fucking sweet.
There’s more but … can’t really remember them right now because beer. If you’ve got one we use on the show you think should be included, let us know.
