[S4/E24] Beer Camp Across The World

Season 4, Episode 24 – This week, we’re exploring the newest Sierra Nevada Collaboration twelve pack.

It’s that special time of year when Sierra Nevada Brewing Company calls forth the best brewers in the land to brew a mixed twelve pack of collaboration beers.

This week, we’re drinking those beers.

If you’ve been listening to Four Brewers for a while, you’ll know that we have a love/hate relationship when it comes to Sierra Nevada beers. This doesn’t mean we think they brew bad beer, but they tend miss the mark more than a brewery of their stature should. The Beer Camp mixed packs have always been a sore spot with us, even though our own Greg Nagel attended Beer Camp in 2013! We love Sierra Nevada! What we’re doing is simply giving valid criticism because we know Sierra Nevada can innovate and evolve without compromising flavor and quality.

This year’s Beer Camp Across The World mixed twelve-pack hit shelves in the Southern California market last week. Keeping with tradition, we picked it up, hoping this year’s beers wouldn’t be a complete dumpster fire (ok, hyperbole–past beers in the mixed pack weren’t really that bad, but we were usually really disappointed), and guess what? This year’s variety pack is pretty damn good! How rad is that?!

We here at Four Brewers are happy to announce that we highly recommend the 2017 Beer Camp Across The World variety/mixed/collaboration twelve pack. Want to know which beers stood out to us the most? Listen to this week’s episode!

[S4/E8] Five Brewers Get Lei’d

Season 4, Episode 8 – Firkfest is coming up, and we’re celebrating by drinking some tropical brews!

Firkfest 2017 is nearly upon us, and we’re gearing up for this year’s tiki-tropical themed event by drinking a plethora of fruity, topical inspired brews. What is Firkfest, you ask? It’s our very own Greg Nagel‘s annual cask ale festival in Anaheim, California.

We must say that for the most part, the beers on the show this week are tropically delicious, if that’s your thing. John does admit during the show, however, that drinking this much fruity, tropical goodness can be a bit taxing over time. It’s best to pace yourself when going to the island of tropics and mix up the styles a bit. Luckily, at this year’s Firkfest, you’ll be able to do just that, since there will be over 30 different casks of tiki-brew available!

It should also be mentioned that we are joined this week by our honorary fifth brewer, Natalie DeNicholas, who is also the host of our newest (soon to be) endeavor, Pink Beer Corner! Details about PBC will be coming soon, so be on the lookout.

Be sure to pickup your tickets for Firkfest! There’s also a special discount code mentioned during the episode that may or may not get you $10 off your tickets, but you didn’t read that here…
