In this show, the Scotsman responds to some less-than-positive comments he received about the sour beer show. He takes the time to remind everyone what the purpose of this show really is, to educate (but not exhaustively!), entertain, and promote the craft beer scene in the Central Valley. Scotsman and Drew talk about Central Valley BrewFest, as well as 10 EAST’s special after-event, SourFest Saturday. The Ale Evangelists also enjoy a collaboration Imperial Dark Rye beer, the Devil Went Down To Oregon by Ninkasi Brewing and Devil’s Backbone Brewing.

Podcast: Sour Beer

This beer is a lovely example of what using innovative brewing ingredients can get you!

This beer is a lovely example of what using innovative brewing ingredients can get you!

In this, the sour beer show, the Scotsman and Drew talk about one of their favorite topics: Sour Beer. That’s right, gentle listeners, they’re talking about beer that is SUPPOSED to be sour! How sour, you ask? Well, these beers range from a refreshing tartness to Warhead-level sourness! How do they make these beers sour, anyway? Well, the Scotsman and Drew cover that too! In addition, the Ale Evangelists talk about whether Sour Enthusiasts are really ruining craft beer. The Show Beer for this show is Deschutes Brewing Co’s Black Butte XXVI, an imperial porter brewed with pomegranate, molasses, cocoa nibs, and cranberries, partially aged in bourbon barrels, and is just…well, listen and find out!

Podcast: Battle Royale

The lineup. Represented here, in no particular order is Firestone-Walker's Pivo Pils, Anchor Brewing's California Lager, Coors, and Budweiser. Can you tell by the colors? We had some guesses!

The lineup. Represented here, in no particular order, is Firestone-Walker’s Pivo Pils, Anchor Brewing’s California Lager, Coors, and Budweiser. Can you tell by the colors? We had some guesses!

In this, the Battle Royale, The Scotsman and Drew put their reputations as beer connoisseurs on the line as they taste Budweiser and Coors up against Anchor Brewing’s California Lager and Firestone-Walker’s Pivo Pils. Will they be taken in by Annheuser Busch’s slick marketing campaigns or beer that was brewed as cold as the rockies? Or will the Ale Evangelists be able to tell the difference between macro and craft? Ultimately, everyone wins, as The Scotsman and Drew show that craft beer alternatives to the big macro beers don’t have to be chewy beers which you can’t see through. In the Battle Royale, The Scotsman and Drew will explore the lighter side of craft beer. Join them, won’t you?
