Podcast: Bitterness and beer

The artfulness of the pre-pour. 120 Minute IPA from Dogfish Head deserves it.

The artfulness of the pre-pour. 120 Minute IPA from Dogfish Head deserves it.

The Scotsman and Drew are joined by Listener James to try the Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA. Folks, this is a rare beer for this area. And an expensive beer. This is neither local, nor reasonably priced, but it is a lovely treat. If you can find yourself a bottle of this, you’re going to pay at least $12/12 oz. bottle, and you’re going to be treated to what is basically a hard liquor of a beer. It’s a great tie in to the topic, however, which is bitterness in beer!

Then they move into a discussion of bitterness in beer and why that involves iso-alpha acids and other scientific chemical terms that are hard to pronounce after having a Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. We’re about to get geeky on The Ale Evangelist Show. Can Listener James bring the Scotsman back from the beer-geek land of unpronounceable terms? Tune in and find out!

A beautiful beer. We only wish we had more bottles of this lively offering.
