Season 4, Episode 40 – This week on the show, we’re harpooning some whales with Gunwhale Ales.
Thar she blows, brah! This week on the show, we’re gettin’ down with some gnarly brews from Orange County’s Gunwhale Ales!
Ok, I’ll spare you the poor impersonation of a mid-1980’s surfer. Gunwhale Ales is fairly new to Orange County craft beer scene, but they’re already making some bodacious waves—sorry. I said I would stop. Ok. Gunwhale Ales has been open less than a year, and they’re already making a splash—damnit. Ok. Gunwhale Ales is making some rad beer…ugh. I give up.
The beers on the show this week were graciously provided by Gunwhale Ales. Without a doubt, we can safely and honestly say that Gunwhale Ales is a brewery to keep your eye on. Every beer on this week’s episode was fantastic and impressive. There’s also a nice variety of styles with the beers they provided to us, ranging from a farro saison to a wild IPA, and, of course, some of that haze, brah!
Season 4, Episode 25 – This week, we’re geeking out on homebrewing and drinking asparagus IPA…NO JOKE.
It’s been a while since we’ve done a legitimately hardcore homebrew episode on the podcast and this week, we’re going back to our roots with the help of Daniel Fernandez from Beancurdturtle Brewing, LLC.
You may have gathered from the title of this episode that we’re drinking actual IPA made with asparagus–yes, asparagus. Along with Daniel’s asparagus beer, we’re drinking four other really tasty brews that he crafted as a homebrewer, as well as beers that he designed for other craft breweries around the world. We also talk about Daniel’s history in craft beer and chat about beer styles and professional brewers that he has worked with over the years.
Many thanks to Daniel for coming down to the studio and hanging out with us. Learn more about Daniel and his beer at Beancurdturtle.com.
