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!
So, here’s what happened. We were thinking of ideas for a show and it dawned on us that Port Brewing Company recently released some of their well-known IPA in cans. Since Pizza Port Brewing Company has been releasing their beers in cans for quite a while now, we thought, “hey! why not try them side-by-side to see which beers are best?” And now, here we are!
A lot of folks tend to get confused with the Port Brewing/Pizza Port/Lost Abbey brand of beers. Just to keep things simple, all of the breweries are owned by the same people. But just because they’re owned by the same people, doesn’t mean that they’re the same brewery. Port Brewing Company and The Lost Abbey brew out of the same brewhouse, while Pizza Port Brewing Company is actually a brewery that makes beers that were originally formulated by many of the small Pizza Port brewpubs in the San Diego area. Still confused? It’s ok. We get into it a little deeper during the show.
After the showdown (and a refreshing dive into the 4B Mailbag), we wrap up with two juice bombs from Trillium Brewing Company, and Noble Ale Works’ latest New England-inspired IPA, 24K Juice.
BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
