Podcast: The ADD Show

Improperly aged to perfection?

On this highly distractible episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the guys read an e-mail from an ACTUAL JAPANESE LISTENER! Among other strange topics on the show, they read sugar free gummy bear product reviews, Drew gets a slug of…something in the improperly aged beer they tried as the show beer. Man, they covered everything and more on this hilarious episode. Some upcoming beer releases and a discussion on whether the new Indie Craft Brewer seal is a good idea or not. They had a good time, and they know you will too on this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show.

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Drew try another of these new-fangled hazy IPAs, with much happiness. They raved about that for awhile, until they realized that Founders is releasing…a barrel-aged malt liquor. Let that rattle around in your brain awhile. A malt liquor…aged in a barrel.

…Yeah, we don’t get it either.

Finally, the guys talk about the in’s and out’s of aging beer. How do you do it right? How do you do it so you can really reap the rewards of your patience? The Ale Evangelist Show returns to its informational roots on this latest episode; don’t miss it!

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Rodbo, Drew, and the Scotsman enjoy a rare treat: A side-by-side tasting of a 2013 and 2017 Brother Thelonius Belgian Dark Strong! The rich malty goodness only gets better with age, and this one has definitely improved.

The guys also talk about whether it’s a problem that AB InBev has purchased a minority stake in a popular beer rating website, RateBeer. I think you can guess how they feel about this.

Podcast: Farewell to St. Stan’s Brewing Company

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist show, the Scotsman bids a fond and respectful farewell to the legend that is St. Stan’s Brewing Company. With the building formerly housing St. Stan’s about to become a topless bar, it seems unlikely that the brewery will make a comeback, though surprisingly the memory of beer drinkers is long, and someone may yet surprise us.

This salted Scotch Ale wasn't as salty as I expected, but it was definitely a fantastic beer!

Should you be aging your IPAs? Perish the thought! Or have we gotten this bit of conventional wisdom wrong as well?

Podcast: Aging Beer, Grains, and 2012 Old Stock Ale

A properly aged 2012 Old Stock Ale will be rich, full of toffee aromas and flavors, dark dates and figs, and a subdued alcohol burn. Was that the Scotsman's and Drew's experience?

A properly aged 2012 Old Stock Ale will be rich, full of toffee aromas and flavors, dark dates and figs, and a subdued alcohol burn. Was that the Scotsman’s and Drew’s experience?

A mishmash of topics on today’s show. Drew’s truck breaks down, but on the upside, he picks up some Not Your Father’s Hard Root Beer. (Remember when they tried it at 10 EAST?) They have a 3-year-old Old Stock Ale from North Coast Brewing in Ft. Bragg. This leads into a discussion on aging beers. Why age a beer? How do you age a beer? These questions, plus a listener question are answered on the aging and grains episode of the Ale Evangelist Show.
