This Is Aged ON White Oak: The Perfect Pour #186

img_1146

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.

The 7 IPAs Not In My Fridge On IPA Day

ipa

IPA Day is on the first Thursday in August. And I can give you 7 IPAs that are not in my beer fridge this year, but DAMMIT, I wish they were.

In brackets, after the beer, I will lay claim to “HAD IT” (already tried the IPA) or “Whalze Bro!” (been searching for it a while). Perfect Pour listeners already know about this pretentious “had it” claim. But I digress.

My beer fridge is sorely lacking…

7. Russian River’s: Blind Pig. [HAD IT!] Of course everybody wants to have a Pliny in their fridge. I do too. But it’s beer been too long since I’ve had a “Pliny Light” (aka Blind Pig) and I’m jonesing for one.

6. Beachwood Brewing’s: Melrose. [Whalze, Bro!] Everything I have had from Beachwood is great, but I keep missing this one. This streak of lameness needs to end today.

5. Kaweah Brewing’s: Slauncher. [Whalze, Bro!] This is a local one with a lot of buzz. It’s driving me crazy I have not tried it. Rumored to be a Pliny chaser. I’m chasing IT.

4. Carton Brewing’s: ID. [Whalze, Bro!] On many days, if you ask me what my favorite brewer is from back East, I will say “Carton, of course. Thanks for asking.” Simply ignoring the fact that I have only had one Carton beer. This only makes sense to me. Forgetting all that, I really want to try this one:

3. Maine Beer Co’s: “Lunch”. [Whalze, Bro!] Even back here in California, I hear a many a tale about this Maine Beer Company. I have not had a Maine Co beer. This “Lunch” sounds like a damn fine place to start. Notes of citrus and tropical fruit with intense hop bang. Yep. Plus the name makes me feel like it’s totally cool to have during me lunch break.

2.Kern River’s: “Citra” [HAD IT!]: Only have had this one a couple times. BUT DAMMIT those were some good times. Wouldn’t mind having more. I hear it’s coming out soon – by “hear” I mean that I dreamed about it magically showing up in my fridge.

1.  The Alchemist’s: Focal Banger [Whalze, Bro!] It’s no longer cool to want a “Heady”. You are now cool if you want the other Alchemist beer. I want to be cool.

This list could go on forever. Isn’t that great!? You could fill a fridge with IPA ‘whales’ and still be wanting more. I love you, craft beer.

IPAs ALL DAY, SON! Perfect Pour Podcast #108

108

We are finally going to try a Founder’s All Day IPA. It took too long to get to this place.

That is not the only beer we try. We try many of them. Many of them before and during the podcast. You can kinda tell if you listen.

We also get through the rumor that Saint Archer may probably sorta sell their souls to Miller/Coors, hot-dogs and beer coming to Fresno, there was a Scotty B meeting and he wasn’t DRIVVVIN’.

Also listen for all the craft beer bottle release news we deem cool, what we were caught drinking, cheers and watch out for a California tangent.

We’re just sitting around wondering when somebody is going to do a macro beer podcast. We wonder this while we hang out with our buddy Dave R. and talk about craft beer. There’s going to be some talk about drinking craft beer in Yosemite, craft beers we’ve been caught drinking, beers we want to be caught drinking and more bottle opening than you can handle.

EPIC BOTTLE SHARE – PACIFIC NORTHWEST EDITION: PERFECT POUR #78

perfect78

Our friend, Lady Beer Love, made a gigantus beer run through the Seattle and Portland area. She is so damn nice and such a believer in the giving nature of the craft beer scene, she brought us a crap ton of beer to try. We also get a drop in from Bells (Dorktown Podcast).

This episode has a lot to take in. Maybe too much drinking and sexual innuendo and not enough podcasting. Maybe. We’ll leave that for you to decide. All we know is it was a lot of fun, there is a lot of good beer to drink and this is a episode not suited for younger listeners or your dog.
