Too Hopped To Handle Now [Yesaround]: Perfect Pour #247

Are ‘Soccer People’ taking over your favorite taproom? You know, that group of people that camp at the bar so they can watch a soccer game together. Should we be ok with this? We discuss.

Some other stuff this week:

  • We have some beer out of the can for the first time… talking about Drake’s, Weldworks and more.
  • How accurate are your Untappd Checkins?
  • Dallas beer spot recos and we ask for some Toronto & Montreal ones.
  • Record Store Day beer pairings.
  • The biggest reason you set limits on beer releases.
  • Do you recycle your brewing gloves or are you simply an animal?

All this and much more beer foolishness! Go full dip and listen!

Beer Geeks Don’t Like Stone Greg. Why?: The Perfect Pour

So Miller Coors is now suing Stone Brewing for the name “Stone”, among other things. It’s weird but it seems the beer geek community is supporting Miller/Coors over Stone on this. Why? We explore this and might actually figure out some things.

There are many more questions this week. Like, why do non-Southern California breweries have such a hard time making a West Coast IPA? I dunno but they do.

This week is extra long. Not sure why. Maybe it’s all the cool voicemails, the list of fastest-growing indie breweries, the ton of beer we have to drink, or “Woo Hoo” girls.

Too long or not, we have some fun, hope you will too.

Sneak off, don’t tell your partner, and give it a listen!

Guitar Center Has No Hazy Beer – A Mostly Clear Perfect Pour

pour243

When is there going to be dive bars in malls? When can I get a beer in my hardware store? Is Guitar Center going to get a hazy beer room next to their acoustic room?

All these questions and more beer geek fun, on this week’s show.

Stuff like, we will talk about some beer releases you should look out for, new voicemail callers, maybe some home brewing tips, Vancouver beer outing recos, a look at some beer industry jobs and more fun.

Be careful not to get caught in the grain listening!:

You know when your dad tries to be cool but you’re like “Dad, just stop. Just. Stop.” Well, Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams) is definitely the dad of the craft beer world. In this episode of the Perfect Pour, we try to figure out a way for Boston Beer Co to be cool. We may not succeed.

This is our 5th Anniversary Show, btw! Yeo, so, a lot more beer talk, plenty of drinking, many topics, hope you enjoy!

Lost On The Ale Trail: The Perfect Pour #222

Not too sure about what is happening with this whole Take Craft Back thing the Brewers Association is doing, but we will talk about it. Some other beer things we will likely get to this episode:

  • A friend of the show now has a special crowler machine.
  • Concert Beer days may be numbered for some of us.
  • It’s not easy ordering craft beer in clubs.
  • One of us is having problems with Untappd.
  • Maybe brewers are forgetting to filter things, things like beer.
  • There is a local Ale Trail happening and it will be a Fresno GetIt. By the way, please forgive the local tangent down Fulton Street, but it does involve beer so it can’t be that bad.

Hope you enjoy. Cheers!

Waiting In Line For New Beer Releases: The Perfect Pour #218

pour218

Do you think long, overnight wait, beer release lines, are a bad thing or a good thing for craft beer and brewery culture? We tackle this question.

We also debate whether investing in your local brewery (Kickstarter style or whatever) is an okay thing to do and discuss if NE style IPAs are here to stay. There are also craft beer news things to talk about, plenty of great beer to drink, beers to look out for, many tangents to have, listener feedback and lots of beer releases to look out for.

Thanks for listening and hanging with us!

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

perfectpour214

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:
