Friend to all beer geeks, Tony Bagz, joins us in the studio to help us pair sponge candy with sponge candy beer, figure out if crowlers are going to kill off growlers, trading beer stories, figure our if Sante Adarius will still be excellent with a new brewer and help us figure out how to become the most well-liked beer geek in California.
We also listen to voicemails, drink a lot more and talk about craft beer releases to look out for – including Pliny The Younger from Russian River.
Sit back and have an old Modern Times with us as we catch up with the world of craft beer as we drink a nice mix of beer. One of those beers might be the most interesting we’ve had in some time.
The feedback continues! Feedback of what we’ve been doing wrong on the show and what we’ve been doing wrong. PLUS, drinking straight from a can AND what’s the deal with Clown Shoes? Something weird is going on there.
Also: Why don’t beer geeks get crazy about grain bills like they do about hops? What’s the deal with Clown Shoes? Something weird is going on there.
The Bearded Brewer is back from his California Central Coast beercation! Listen for great calls, brewing talk, Russian River might be coming to your town, crowlers, plenty of drinking, more ‘beer nerd’ terms that annoy, PLUS there are some “Silicon Valley” tangents.
Something to take away from this episode: What is the beer style that represents your city the most? (voicemail 559-492-0542)
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.
Bells returns and some awesome craft beer stuff happens! Elysian sells off their street cred and we go deep with it. We drink new beers. Talk about some ‘beercationing’ and much more craft beer nerd goodness!
So many amazing beers this episode and one of them we’ve been waiting two years to get. Thanks for listening. Check us out on Patreon!
