[S4/E12] Dawson’s Kriek

Season 4, Episode 12 – This week on the show, ch-ch-ch-cherry beers! Freak out with your Kriek out…

This week on the show, we have a plethora of potentially pink beer, so much so that we may need a paddle to get out of this cherry kriek we’ve found ourselves in. If only we had a corner to drink them all in… Luckily, we are joined again by Natalie DeNicholas, who coincidentally is the host of our new YouTube show called, Pink Beer Corner! It’s all coming up pink, isn’t it?

Matt was inspired to bring all the cherry things for this week’s show based off of a homebrew he made that in the end, he didn’t think turned out so well. In an effort to save a beer that was destined to inevitably end up in a dump bucket shared between five homebrewers on this podcast, he added bugs (bacteria bugs, that is) and cherries. Turns out, he still wasn’t a fan (and neither were the rest of us). Swiftly moving on, we ventured to find beers that didn’t have that well-known cough syrup flavor that so many people notice with cherry beers.

As per usual, our session concludes with us in a hot mess of singing, impersonations, waxing poetic about nonsense, and having no clear winner on which cherry beer rainiers supreme. Get it? It’s a cherry joke.

BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.

[S4/E11] Milo Goes to Portland

Season 4, Episode 11 – This week, John returns from his recent trip to Portland, Oregon, and brings beers from The Commons and Baerlic with him.

John recently went on vacation with his girlfriend (Yvonne) of 13 years to the wonderful beer city of Portland, Oregon, and he brought back back eight beers from two breweries to share on the podcast. Turns out, there are A LOT of craft breweries in Portland, Oregon, and the hype you’ve heard is totally real. It’s way rad! John couldn’t bring #allthebeers back, so this week we’re focusing on two breweries that John was really impressed with.

The Commons Brewry

First up is The Commons Brewery. The Commons is a GABF award-winning brewery that is making beers to please both the beer-geekiest hophead and the discerning Belgian-style beer drinker. After visiting the brewery, John could reasonably say that most of the brews from The Commons are totally on point and straight up delicious. You MUST stop by The Commons Brewery if you find yourself in Portland.

Next up is a brewery that is new to the 4B crew, Baerlic Brewing Company. This was a brewery that John and Yvonne kind of stumbled upon while wandering around downtown Portland. Turns out, they make really good brew that’s a bit outside of the norm for craft beer.

If you find yourself in Portland, Oregon and you’re looking for some excellent craft beer, rest assured that you’ll definitely be able to stumble into a random brewery (or 20) and drink something awesome.

Keep it up, Portland.

[Side note, the new album (Spotify) from The Menzingers was released while John was vacationing in PDX, so you should totally check it out because it’s awesome.]
