Podcast: Drew’s Gone AWOL

On this episode, Rodbo and the Scotsman mock Drew, who forgot they were supposed to record today. They taste a couple of listener donated beers, as well as they talk about the Belgian Tripel and Dark Strong styles.

They talk about blood-alcohol levels and how many drinks it takes to get there.

Finally, they talk about whether or not Annheuser Busch is producing water or just being more honest on their labeling. It’s a grab bag of topics AND listener donated beer, with the trademark distractions and rabbit-trails you’ve come to know and love from the Ale Evangelist Show.

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.

What’s so great about it? Please read on…
