[S4/E32] Genesis of Shame

Season 4, Episode 32 – This week’s episode is a grab bag of raddness–don’t be deceived by the title of the episode…

This week’s episode is really all over the place. We’re drinking malt liquor, hoppy lager, IPA, wild ale…whew!

This week, we’re finishing off the beers sent to us by 4B listener Nick Krenz and throwing in a few more from the grab bag. In hindsight, drinking seven beers on this episode may not have been the best idea, but it was pretty fun.

Thanks once again to Nick for sending us the brew!

Sour Cellars – Copper Spike
Station 26 Brewing Co. – Tangerine Cream
Melvin Brewing – 2×4 DIPA

[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!

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.
