Lost On The Ale Trail: The Perfect Pour #222

Not too sure about what is happening with this whole Take Craft Back thing the Brewers Association is doing, but we will talk about it. Some other beer things we will likely get to this episode:

  • A friend of the show now has a special crowler machine.
  • Concert Beer days may be numbered for some of us.
  • It’s not easy ordering craft beer in clubs.
  • One of us is having problems with Untappd.
  • Maybe brewers are forgetting to filter things, things like beer.
  • There is a local Ale Trail happening and it will be a Fresno GetIt. By the way, please forgive the local tangent down Fulton Street, but it does involve beer so it can’t be that bad.

Hope you enjoy. Cheers!

This Mosaic IPA Is Way Mosaic Heavy: Perfect Pour Podcast #144

perfect_pour_144

It’s a special week as Scotty B joins us LIVE! Plus John Toepfer, President of Fresno homebrew club The SJV Worthogs. If that’s not enough guest craft beer talkers, Jake From State Farm hangs out on Futon 55.

We get into many beers, talk about homebrewing, talk beer news, get ‘caught drinkin’ listen to some voicemails with Red Tube on, all with new music from Paul In Fairfax! Yes, Paul may have written the greatest beer song of all time and he ‘cold transferred’ every note!

Oh yeahhhh, and somebody might bust out a WHALEZ, BRO!

Chocotasoooooo: The Perfect Pour #143

143

You’re going to have to indulge us this week. We go into a local rabbit hole about one of our favorite pizza and beer places moving to a new location.

It’s cool though, outside of that, we got all the classic indie craft beer drinking and talking we have every week. And listener voicemails, never forget the voicemails. PLUS!: our Been Caught Drinking segment goes metal.

Ohhhhh yeah, before I forget: WE DRINK CHOCOTASO! That’s right: Chew Your Beer

sent us some Chocotaso and we drink it up! And let’s not forget the killer label Scotty B’s beer got

Thanks for being rad and listening. And to you, a Golden God of the Perfect Pour…Cheeers!

People Are Getting Very Un-Craft Beer About Things: Perfect Pour #135

perfectpour135

Well, #IndieBeer is still causing a ruckus. People don’t seem to understand why a person would want to choose a good independent brewer over a macro or buyout brewer. We don’t understand why people think that’s dumb. The struggle is real.

The show is still getting a strong amount of listener voicemails, it’s damn near taking over things. We are pretty ok with that.

Plus, beers to look out for and beers we were caught drinking in the past week. AND Mikey is tempted buy a Ballast Point can.

Where Is Your ‘Sweet Spot’ For IPAs?/Untappd Gets Bought Out: Perfect Pour #132

perfectpour132

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.

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!”
