[S4/E19] Hostile Offshoot Beers

Season 4, Episode 19 – Every beer on the show this week came from a can, and boy are they good.

Canned IPA has really taken off here in southern California. One could reasonably say that nearly every brewery has hopped on the Hazy IPA train (pun intended), which in our opinion, is great. This week, we’ve got a mix of New England-inspired IPA, some IPA from The Bruery (yes, you read that correctly), and some tart fruit whalez from Bottle Logic Brewing and Keymaster Games.

I (John) think I speak for the rest of the guys when I say that IPA from The Bruery has been a long time coming. They’ve resisted the SoCal IPA craze since their opening in 2008, yet produced one of the best India Pale Lagers in the area, Humulus Lager, which was only on draft at the tasting room in Placentia, California. It’s like they were teasing their customers with this beer. Humulus Lager was proof that The Bruery could brew a great IPA, er, IPL, while maintaining their Belgian inspired beer credibility. Well, The Bruery has finally brewed IPA, but they couldn’t brew it under the name of The Bruery (they said they’d NEVER brew an IPA…), so they made a new brand just for these styles of beer and named it Offshoot Beer Co..

Along with Offshoot Brewing Co. beers, we’re drinking some freshies from Bottle Logic Brewing, as well as a beer from The Alchemist by way of 4B listener Robert Perry.

BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.

[S4/E10] UP UP and Away!

Season 4, Episode 10 – This week, ultra-fresh canned beers from Bottle Logic Brewing, and more 4B listener submitted beers!

Firkfest 2017 is nearly upon us! What is Firkfest, you ask? It’s our very own Greg Nagel‘s annual cask ale festival in Anaheim, California.
Get your tickets at Firkfest.com!

Greg couldn’t join us for Session 52 of Four Brewers, but worry not, for Natalie DeNicholas is here to do some heavy lifting and help us drink some super-fresh beers from Bottle Logic Brewing, as well as great selection of beers from 4B listener, Sam Szapucki!

The first two beers on this week’s episode are a first for Orange County’s Bottle Logic Brewing, Up Up IPA and 714 Blonde Ale in CANS! That’s right! Bottle Logic boarded that massive aluminum train and started releasing their beer in cans this weekend! The highly sought after New England-style Up Up IPA sold out online this past Friday in mere minutes. Luckily for us, we were able to get our hands on some in a nick of time before recording Session 52 on Saturday, March 4th.

Along with Up Up, we’re drinking another first for Bottle Logic, their (714) Blonde Ale in cans! This beer is usually always on tap at Bottle Logic’s tasting room, but the cans will only be available for purchase outside of the brewery within their distribution area. So, keep your eyes open!

We end the show with five beers given to us by loyal Four Brewers listener and Patreon Supporter Sam Szapucki (thanks, Sam!) from Occidental Brewing Co., Melvin Brewing, pFriem Family Brewery, Breakside Brewing, and 4B favorite, Fort George Brewery.
