[S4/E16] Horseback Rides in a Pineapple Farm

Season 4, Episode 16 – This week, some tasty lager from Sudwerk, and hoppy IPA from El Segundo.

Sudwerk and El Segundo Brewing are two breweries that have found a special, warm place in our collective 4B hearts. On today’s episode, we’re featuring beers from both breweries, ranging from gose, to doppelbock, to IPA. Variety is the spice of life, after all..

We kick off the show this week with a journey into the 4B mailbag while sampling some hand-delivered brews from Davis, California’s Sudwerk Brewing Co, and answer listener questions about Belgian beer, the Craft Brewers Conference, and Micheladas, of all things.

We wrap up the episode with an experiment of sorts with El Segundo Brewing Company‘s first three IPAs in their Bursted Hop series of beers, all of which focus on one type of hop that was added exclusively at the end of the boil in the brewing process, rather than at two or three different stages.

Big thanks as always to the fine folks at Sudwerk for hooking us up, yet again. We’ve got nothin’ but love for yas.

[S3/E33] The Goser Coaster

Season 3, Episode 33 – This week, we take a ride on the goser coaster and sample nine gose style beers.

Last week’s show was pretty epic. We decided the best way to recover from the incredibly awesome 24 beer pilsner showdown was to relax with some easy-drinking gose style beers from breweries around the world. Gose is a style of beer that’s usually low alcohol, a bit on the tart side, and made with salt to give it a dry, brackish feel (get into the finer details of the style here). While on paper this sounds like a disaster of a beer, it’s actually pretty damn refreshing. There’s a surprising variety of gose available to us in the southern California market, so we decided to go for it.

The thing with gose is that some breweries want to “amp up” the style and add fruit to the beer to give it an even more refreshing and easy-drinking twist. This works sometimes, but adding more stuff to an otherwise shitty base beer makes for an even shittier beer. Kettle souring has become quite popular as of late and while it’s efficient and cuts down on risking brewhouse infection, some breweries don’t put in the proper care during the process to insure a well made kettle sour. Other breweries go the more traditional route and add bacteria to sour the wort after it has been brewed, or after primary fermentation. The beers on this week’s episode pretty much cover the gamut.

We also answer a few questions from The Mailbag and reflect on life with some user-submitted 4B haikus.
