Steven from Zack’s Brewing fills in for a missing member of the show this week. But hey, that’s cool because Steven may or may not have an announcement for us and the question of “What does it take to open up a brewery?” is going to be a relevant one.
Plus, all kinds of beer nerd things are going to happen. Things like, listeners calling us to let everyone know what their beer scene is like, we drink all the beers including the “new to town” Revision Brewing and more craft beer FUN. Because beer is FUN.
We talk about our new You Tube “show”, drink beer. We talk about the big Fresno Bee article on the local beer scene, we drink some beer. We talk about craft beer news, we drink some beer. We listen to voicemails, we drink some beer. We talk about new beer releases to look out for and drink the beers. We get caught drinking and drink some beer. We mention a growler related spreadsheet and totally drink beer. PLUS, Nick has the biggest problem with a beer, evaaaar.
We gots a special guest for episode 100 (you’ll find out who soon enough…oh crap, already gave it away in the title) and he helps us talk about craft beer things like: Brew pubs in grocery stores, beer in the South Valley, a review of the Firestone Walker Invitational and more!
Oh yeah, and helps us drink some amazers stuff from Russian River, The Bruery, Firestone Walker, Tioga, No-Li, Great Basin and more!
We had not planned to go through a ton of canned craft beers, but it’s going to happen in this episode and it’s not a bad thing.
What’s sexier than a ‘shower beer’? Bikini watching beer, maybe? We also cover craft beer culture, figure out when is the right time to throw out your beer, find out what beers we’ve been drinking and looking out for and more craft beer geeking.
Should Belgian influenced beers just go away or be allowed to become stronger?
Classic craft beer geek…geeking out on this episode. We talk about that Belgian thing. PLUS, some new Ballast Point beers (well, new to Fresno anyway) have hit town in cans, there’s a mystery New York beer in town and we give advice to fellow bottle collectors. Yep and we check-in on a tap-list in San Diego, try some pretty damn good Spokane beers, hear from a listener, ‘look out’ for more beer, talk about what we’ve ‘been caught drinking’ and more!!
Let’s get into it. If Fresno getting a “beer week”? There’s all the infighting going on in craft beer world. Did you hear what John Oliver thinks of Bud Light because if ya didn’t, we played the clip. There is much frustration happening over varitey packs from Ballast Point and Saint Archer. All this and a warning during Been Caught Drinking, listener voicemails (“Hey guys! I’m driiiIIIvin’!), beers to Look Out For, cheers and more!
More drinking shenanigans: Did anyone get a winning Citra email? We talk about how Sierra Nevada’s “Hop Hunter” IPA is, ironically, not really an IPA but more like a pale, more craft beer culture, there’s more Patreon begging, more drinking and sharing, a beer related closing in Fresno and much more junk!
