Podcast: The Top 50 American Craft Breweries

The boozyness is strong with this one. 🙂

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Drew get to try a special 20th Anniversary edition of Dogfish Head’s Higher Math, a 17% abv Golden Ale with Sour Cherries and Chocolate!

They talk about the Brewer’s Association’s list, Top 50 Craft Breweries in the US, as well as they discuss some stupid beer laws around the US, some of which are changing.

Don’t miss this boozy episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!

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.

120 Minute IPA from Dogfish Head Brewing, a write-up by The Beer Babe

http://www.thebeerbabe.com/2011/10/dogfish-head-brewing-company-120-minute-ipa/

We occasionally get Dogfish Head beers in CA, and they’re always a treat.  Recently, a friend of mine brought a pack each of the 60 minute and 90 minute IPA’s, and they really are stellar.  This is a great write-up of the 120-minute flavor, and you should definitely read it!  Then drink it.  Then drink it some more.
