Podcast: The Scotsman Has Some ‘Splaining To Do

A malty, grainy, strong scotch ale!

On this show, the Scotsman and Rodbo play 4 voicemails(!), discuss Waldo’s Special Ale, the Scotsman mocks IPA-hating Rodbo for making his first Dust Bowl Brewing’s HOPS OF WRATH, and they are also introduced to Gigantic Brewing Company with a malty, grainy strong scotch ale. It’s a fun show, where the Scotsman defends his view of Dagny vs. Sandude, his rant about Dagny, and why he still drinks Lagunitas. Finally, the beer calendar gets a new event, which appears to be aimed at home brewers! We think you’ll quite enjoy the latest episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!
