Roger from Pine & Palm muled us one of the first Silva Brewing crowlers in existence. While, a crowler from Silva Brewing may not the plans for the Death Star, it’s still pretty damn important!
Plenty of other craft beer topics pop up, including when is a taproom too grimy to hang out in and do you like to drink more beer in the Winter? We also give out info for Rush Day (best beer geek event in Fresno), tell you about some new beer to look out for, answer beer-mail and listen to the listeners!
Roger from Pine & Palm Brewing guests this week! A lot of fun will be had. Fun with beer. Fun with voicemails. Fun with beer knowledge. Fun with tangents. Fun with a show stopping story from Matt about a certain party he went to.
Drinking beer. Plenty of listener donated beer from places back East (you, know, like East of the Sierras), Garage Door Brewing made that beer from the thing, PLUS Mikey & Nick brought back a couple of ‘looking out for’ beers from San Diego and other parts.
Beer news: Is Fresno going to get Pliny? We get into a little local action… sorry, bro.
Listeners calling in with their various beer and podcast concerns.
We provide some beers that you might want to look out for.
Oh and WE HAVE BUTTONS!
Lots and lots of F-BOMBS in this episode, just to warn ya.
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.
There is a new wave of self-pour beer places happening. Sounds kinda awesome to be able to pour your own beer. Hasn’t that always been the dream? To be able to jump behind the bar and pour all the beer you want?
Well it’s a reality now and maybe it’s not such a great thing. We bring back Rad Stacey from New Belgium (plus the awesome Shana Shamalamadingdong of GoldStein’s) to help us break down that topic.
They also help us drink a lot of beer! Namely New Belg’s Fat Tire & Friends 12-pack. Plus they teach us what a “clam jam” is and we listen to a new song from Paul In Fairfax (that is pretty RAD), press Stacey for New Belgium buyout news, and lots of voicemail!
*Editor’s note: Sorry in advance for all the “talking over each other” you will have to endure this week. It’s the price you pay when you party and podcast. And yes, there will be crotch references.
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)
