One of us is declaring double IPAs to be over. Done. We also explore what it’s like working and all day festival at a beer garden, Untappd updates, things are happening in Fresno’s burgeoning beer scene and more loose beer geek goodness.
Plus some interesting beer releases to look out for, listener questions and plenty of beer tasting!
This week on the show, a Budweiser commercial has got Mikey dangerously close to drinking a Bud. Dangerously.
Plus!: Joshua Tehee and Kathy Mahan from the Fresno Bee newspaper (and Flowing With Famous), come on to talk about the Bee’s new beer page and the local Fresno beer scene.
We also tackle what it’s like when your significant other is not a beer geek and you’re out there trying to be all beer geeky! And we listen to voicemails, drink some first-time-in-a-can perfection, look out for some new beer releases and give a tip or two about getting Pliny The Younger.
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.
This week we dial back our podcast silly and get back to basics: talking about and drinking, craft beer. Yep, we candidly discuss why listeners are complaining of bad batches of podcast. Plus plenty of bottle and can openings in the middle of our classic beer segments and a thorough break-down of how a “pour your own beer” system works.
If you have dumped us lately, maybe try us this week and see if we’re tweaking the podcast recipe just right.
Besides trying some super fresh beers from Tioga Sequoia, The Hop Concept, Odell Brewing, Maui Brewing, Sierra Nevada and New Belgium, we talk about all the craft beer geek stuff worth talking.
Our main topic this week: What are the ‘Bro Beers’ of the craft beer world? Yeah, we know much of the macro scene is taken up by ‘bro beers’ but what if you were forced to come up with a craft beer that bros drink?
Oh plus: Another craft beer podcast wants to hear some throwing-up stories and we oblige.
