Paul In Fairfax, Fontana Jim and Lots Of Beer!: The Perfect Pour 158

pour158

Tonight, on a very special episode of Blossom, Blossom reveals that she has never drank a Pliny…WAIT no, this is the Perfect Pour, a craft beer show. Not a spunky early 90s sitcom.

But this is a very special episode. Our guests this week are none other than listeners and experienced beer enthusiasts: Fontana Jim and Paul In Fairfax. THATS RIGHT! Jim and Paul are live and in the studio! Not only that, the Footon 55 has a couple of guests too!

It’s pretty damn rad to be able to talk and share some good beer with good folks. Thanks for sticking with the show and having fun with us.

Welp. We have a lot of beer to drink so let’s get to it!:

Beer Geeks Don’t Get Crazy Over Grain Bills, Bro: The Perfect Pour #157

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.

 

Thanks for the listen. CHEERS!

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.

Highly ABNORMAL Craft Beer Drinking: Perfect Pour #137

137

Indie beer people are a small group. Not big. Small. They need your support. If you don’t feel like supporting independent stuff, just at least leave the people that do, alone.

We talk about this and some other craft beer culture news. Plus: What is the best beer bar in your state?

We are then joined by Derek Gallanosa, Head Brewer at Abnormal Beer Company. He’s a pretty awesome guy. We talked about a lot of beer stuff. Some of them this:

  • The amazing craft beer life that a brewer in San Diego can have.
  • Converting people to craft beer.
  • Do brewers look at your Untappd reviews of their beer.
  • Getting hops from Big Beer.
  • Tells some pretty awesome stories. Along with one that involves a prominent Perfect Pour listener.

Lots of IPA related drinking happens as we give you some beers to look out for and talk about beers we drank.

Oh, and there are a lot of voicemails. LOTS of voicemails.

You Don’t Get To Have Everything, Macro Beer!: Perfect Pour #134

 

134

This week on the show, we finally tell our side of the Big #IndieBeer Battle of 2016. Sorry, you don’t get to be cool, Big Beer, and we’re going to give you some shit about it.

It’s always fun when we get to sink our teeth into a topic we are passionate about and we are definitely passionate about beer.

There’s some other stuff too.

Did we get tickets to Firestone Walker Invitational? Maybe… but we give some tips for those that want to show up in town but don’t have tickets. What happens when your taproom doesn’t have a permit for guest taps? Beers to look out for and we long for the days of crank calling.

Stay to the end for your Barly cheers… Wait, WHAT!? This episode is over two hours? That’s so indie.
