Paul In Fairfax, Fontana Jim and Lots Of Beer!: The Perfect Pour 158

Tonight, on a very special episode of Blossom, Blossom reveals that she has never drank a Pliny...WAIT no, this is the Perfect Pour, a craft beer show. Not a spunky early 90s sitcom.

But this is a very special episode. Our guests this week are none other than listeners and experienced beer enthusiasts: Fontana Jim and Paul In Fairfax. THATS RIGHT! Jim and Paul are live and in the studio! Not only that, the Footon 55 has a couple of guests too!

It's pretty damn rad to be able to talk and share some good beer with good folks. Thanks for sticking with the show and having fun with us.

Welp. We have a lot of beer to drink so let's get to it!:

Beer Geeks Don’t Get Nerdy About Grain Bills: The Perfect Pour #157

157.png

Sit back and have an old Modern Times with us as we catch up with the world of craft beer as we drink a nice mix of beer. One of those beers might be the most interesting we've had in some time. 

The feedback continues! Feedback of what we've been doing wrong on the show and what we've been doing wrong. PLUS, drinking straight from a can AND what's the deal with Clown Shoes? Something weird is going on there.

Also: Why don't beer geeks get crazy about grain bills like they do about hops? What's the deal with Clown Shoes? Something weird is going on there.

Thanks for the listen. CHEERS.

We Prefer Batch Number 1 [The Perfect Pour Craft Beer Podcast 156]

theperfectpour156.png

This week we dial back our podcast silly and get back to basics: talking about and drinking, craft beer. Yep, we candidly discuss why listeners are complaining of bad batches of podcast. Plus plenty of bottle and can openings in the middle of our classic beer segments and a thorough break-down of how a "pour your own beer" system works.

If you have dumped us lately, maybe try us this week and see if we're tweaking the podcast recipe just right.

What Is Wrong With Self Pour Beer and Clam Jams? [Perfect Pour #155]

PerfectPour155.png

There is a new wave of self-pour beer places happening. Sounds kinda awesome to be able to pour your own beer. Hasn't that always been the dream? To be able to jump behind the bar and pour all the beer you want?

Well it's a reality now and maybe it's not such a great thing. We bring back Rad Stacey from New Belgium (plus the awesome Shana Shamalamadingdong of GoldStein's) to help us break down that topic.

They also help us drink a lot of beer! Namely New Belg's Fat Tire & Friends 12-pack. Plus they teach us what a "clam jam" is and we listen to a new song from Paul In Fairfax (that is pretty RAD), press Stacey for New Belgium buyout news, and lots of voicemail!

*Editor's note: Sorry in advance for all the "talking over each other" you will have to endure this week. It's the price you pay when you party and podcast. And yes, there will be crotch references.

Our Beer Notes Are Written In A Moleskin Because We’re Hella Cool: Perfect Pour #150

perfectpour105

Craft beer questions we ask ourselves this week: How do you manage your beer social media when you're out with somebody that doesn't care? Is craft beer in Target about to change? Will this episode set the TANGENT record? Is Fresno getting a new old brewery? Is Flying Dog indie?

PLUS, of course, I suspect there will be some great calls from the Perfect Pour listeners, along with plenty of drinking and beers to 'look out for', yo!

Thanks for listening to us. Have fun with us!:
