Season 4, Episode 36 – There has been so much happening in the beer world over the last few months. This week, we’re talking news while drinking a few good brews.
This week on the show, we’re talking news. You might be asking yourself, “but, guys! What about the beer? You’re a beer podcast?” Well, worry not, because we also drinking a few randos that we’ve been sitting on for a while.
There has been A LOT going on the beer world over the last few months. Brewery buyouts are happening at a much faster pace than in previous years, and the scene is changing more and more rapidly. Breweries buying out brewpubs, private investors purchasing stakes in our favorite local breweries, keeping up with which breweries are independent and which aren’t…it’s tough to keep up with it all. This week, we’re focusing on a few key stories that we think are important and you should know about.
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!
BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
