[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.

BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.

4B Theme Song: The Sleeping Sea King

[S4/E6] This Quad is On Point, Man!

Season 4, Episode 6 – This week, Mike Kirshner sends us not only his homebrew, but also some totally whale-worthy brew from Jester King Brewery.

Don’t wait in line for Pliny the Younger! Get your raffle tickets for the Beachwood BBQ 6th Annual Pliny Fights Cancer Charity Raffle before February 18th! All proceeds go to the Melanoma Research Foundation in memory of Tony Carbone.

Jester King Brewery is a mainstay on the Four Brewers podcast. Anytime something new comes around from JK, you know we’re gonna jump on it and feature it on the show. This week, we got our grubby little hands on the latest white-whale to come out of the Texas beer scene by way of longtime 4B listener, Mike Kirshner. We’re also drinking some homebrew from Mike (he’s an awesome homebrewer, by the way…)!

Kicking things off is a super-sessionable mild from Jester King brew that clocks in at a mere 2.9% alcohol by volume named, Commercial Suicide. If there’s anything we love, it’s tasty brew that can be enjoyed all afternoon. Kollaborationsbier and Noble King follow up this delicious, slightly tart mild, making way for the beer we all came here for, Jester King’s gueuze-style wild ale, SPON Méthode Gueuze. Matt also got his hands on a variation of SPON made with peach and apricot, and yes, it’s tasty af.

We wrap up the episode with four homebrews from Mr. Kirshner that we previously featured on an episode that (due to technical issues) didn’t make it to the podcast feed. We’ve featured Mike’s homebrew on the show before and are obviously always happy to feature killer homebrew from him and anyone else who wants to send their homebrew our way.

Thanks to Mike for providing the Jester King beers and the homebrew!
