Podcast: IPA Day

On this bitter, floral episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Drew are overwhelmed by the bitterness of IPA Day as the same the Yakima Express from Silva Brewing Company.  Even after a month in the can, this beer is almost too bitter for the both of them.

They talk about the history of IPA Day, which is a happy subject.

Then, they shift to the recent acquisition of Anchor Brewing Company by Sapporo.

A cool discussion of the history of both of these venerable organizations means you don’t want to miss the next episode of the Ale Evangelist Show.

Podcast: Be Judgemental, It’s a Good Thing!

One of the old-style scoresheets from BJCP competitions.

On this information-packed episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Drew sit down with Peter Munoz, certified beer judge, to talk about what beer judging is all about.

The guys talked about off flavors, beer scoring, and what judges are looking for in competitions. It might surprise you to know that beer judges aren’t judging based on whether or not they liked the beer, and that’s just the beginning of this dense subject.

Peter scores the Scotsman’s latest beer, and they talk about what could have made it better, and the guys all try a few of Peter’s beers.

Peter turned on the informational fire hose on this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show. You don’t want to miss it.

Hazy as all getout, is this beer as juicy as its name implies? Will it overcome Rodbo’s unnatural hop hatred? Listen and find out!

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman, Rodbo, and Drew undergo a change in the show’s location to the newly-named Budweiser Bunker to escape the plague at the Scots Estate.
