[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/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.
