Highly ABNORMAL Craft Beer Drinking: Perfect Pour #137

137

Indie beer people are a small group. Not big. Small. They need your support. If you don’t feel like supporting independent stuff, just at least leave the people that do, alone.

We talk about this and some other craft beer culture news. Plus: What is the best beer bar in your state?

We are then joined by Derek Gallanosa, Head Brewer at Abnormal Beer Company. He’s a pretty awesome guy. We talked about a lot of beer stuff. Some of them this:

  • The amazing craft beer life that a brewer in San Diego can have.
  • Converting people to craft beer.
  • Do brewers look at your Untappd reviews of their beer.
  • Getting hops from Big Beer.
  • Tells some pretty awesome stories. Along with one that involves a prominent Perfect Pour listener.

Lots of IPA related drinking happens as we give you some beers to look out for and talk about beers we drank.

Oh, and there are a lot of voicemails. LOTS of voicemails.

Ballast Point Sells and the Bubble Bursts: Perfect Pour #123

123

 

Yes. We already know Ballast Point sold their soul to Big Beer. It’s beer geek freakout time, bro! Really, it’s just sad.

Not sad for the owners of Ballast Point. Not sad for the employees of Ballast Point. But maybe sad for craft beer. Or what we and Three B Zine are now calling craft beer: Indie Beer.

So yeah, we’re going to tackle the whole Ballast Point thing. And maybe explore the notion that the Craft Beer Bubble everyone talks about? Yeah it’s not craft beer’s popularity ending but Big Beer buying up so much craft that we don’t know where the lines are anymore and everyone just says “Fuck it!” “Beer is beer!”

Generous Beer Podcast Friends and the San Diego Craft Beer Scene: Perfect Pour Pod #115

1115p

We definitely broke a record (maybe two) with this week’s episode: Longest Perfect Pour Ever.

Greg, from craft beer podcast SD Beer Talk, joins us in studio and brings us lots of beer because craft beer people are super cool.

Of course we get to talk about San Diego’s craft beer scene, podcasting, drinking, the Golden Road deal with ABinBEV, more gold drinking, voicemails, drinking and drinking.

The only question is, will we break the record for most “I Love GoooOOlds” on the show.

BOARD OF THE WEEK: Blind Lady Alehouse

New feature on the Perfect Pour blog: Board Of The Week! Our first one comes from Blind Lady Alehouse down in the San Diegos.

I see Noble’s Big Whig, I’m liking that. If you’re there in the afternoon the Craftsman Made For The Shade light lager might work. This year’s Santa’s Lil Helper is already out, too early for me but it sounds interesting. That Ritual Hop-O-Matic, I’m imaging that being really good though I’ve heard nothing.

Good week to head down to BLAH.
