Big Dog, aka “XL Perro”, joins us this week to talk about Buffalo’s craft beer scene and living in San Diego during the rise of the OG, San Diego Brewers. We also drink a lot of great beers, look out for some new beer releases and talk about how freaking hard it is to open a brewery.
Heads up!: We put flour in this episode to make it look like we’re trying.
Our beer fridge is mic’d and ready for tough beer questions. There are more growler tips. Does the Perfect Pour approve of NE IPAs? Is the staff at SF Toronado truly assholes? All this and a lot more craft beer talk and drinking!
Craft beer questions we ask ourselves this week: How do you manage your beer social media when you’re out with somebody that doesn’t care? Is craft beer in Target about to change? Will this episode set the TANGENT record? Is Fresno getting a new old brewery? Is Flying Dog indie?
PLUS, of course, I suspect there will be some great calls from the Perfect Pour listeners, along with plenty of drinking and beers to ‘look out for’, yo!
There was a huge blind taste test by Paste Magazine to determine the best IPA and your dang skippy we are going to talk about that! What’s with that new/old Ballast Point? There is magic growler drinking and the story on how we got it. There may or may not be some Fresno and Space Ghost tangents within’ episode, so, sorry? There is more more more craft beer nerding! Watch our for Tiguns and check it out:
Pliny The Younger. One of the Perfect Pourers braved the line at Russian River this year. Was the Regular Beer Geek experience better or was Younger better being treated as a “industry” person? Greg, The Beerocrat, returns to help us figure this out.
Plus a ton of drinking local talk, listener voicemail, Been Caught Drinking, what’s with Hopslam and more more and more craft beer talk. Thank you for listening!
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!
