A Whale Beer Named After A Whale: The Perfect Pour #172

172.png

You know when you go to a place and order a beer and they bring the beer to you and it doesn't look right or taste right? But you are not confident enough to tell the waiter "you brought me the wrong beer" so you keep drinking it.

Well, we drank out of the wrong growler this week. But instead of sending it back, we were grateful. Super grateful.

Some things to also look out for in this week's show:

  • Spotting a fellow beer geek in the grocery store.
  • Quitely there's a new almost buyout beer.
  • An Evil Twin beer gets Jesus censored.
  • A story about going to Toronado beer bar in San Francisco.
  • When is Ikea getting a beer bar?
  • Cheese replaces cheers.
  • A re-state on why we make fun of Firestone Walker's "805" beer.
  • We have a whale beer that is truly a 'whale' beer.

There's a lot more than that if you give the show a shot and listen

With Matt out on "beard leave" Mikey and Nick have to pull in somebody big to entertain the listeners. How about SCOTTY B!? Plus home-brewer and possibly about to start a legit brewery guy, Matt Vaught!

Plenty of homebrew will be poured but don't worry, we still mix in our normal craft beer geek talk, drinking and listener voicemails. We'll give you some beer to look out for, report on some of the best beer we drank in the past week, play games with our beers and have such bad mic problems it just might shut the show down.

Sportsball In Your Craft Beer Bar: The Perfect Pour Craft Beer Show #166

166.png

Do you really need the big "sportsball" game on at your local craft beer bar or taproom or is your beer enough? PLUS! The shots that are in every craft brewery commercial, another beer podcast was in the Bearded Brewer's place, Mitch Steele does something weird and friend of the show, Adrian Berrera, is the new Head Brewer of Kern River!

Those are some of the craft beer things we cover this episode. We also DRINK BEER. Maybe too much. We also give you a heads-up on some beers you might want to look out for and remind you to locally source your beer and podcast.

Also, apparently, when Mikey drinks a lot, he can't remember where Wales is.

We only eat indie burritos. ... Don't hate. Party.

Bottle Share Etiquette and Not Respecting Brew Pubs: The Perfect Pour 165

Beer geeks don't really geek out about brew pubs. We're kinda "meh". Why is this? Are we too snobby or is there a good reason?

Plus, if you've ever wanted to know how to conduct yourself on your first bottle share, the listeners of the Perfect Pour give their advice on what to do at your first bottle share.
We also talk some beer news (like the epic buyout beer post from Modern Times), give you a heads-up on some good looking beer coming out, debut new music from Paul, and enjoy many beers - even one from our Fizzics.

Capturing Whale Beers With War Pigeons: The Perfect Pour #164

pour164.png

Everyone has a different definition of what a "whale beer" is to them. Some are pretty universal. Like, say, a Pliny or Heady. Some are regional. Some are just personal whalez.

This week we capture several kinds of whale beers. Good good times.

We also talk about our usual craft beer culture topics, give you some beer to look out for and get feedback from listeners. PLUS A NEW SONG FROM "Paul In Fairfax"! And Stick around for a little home brewer hoping to turn pro talk.
