Podcast – Another IPA???

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, a listener voicemail reveals the ultimate fate of the St. Stan’s Brewing building in downtown Modesto. The guys also try a couple of really awesome beers, one of which was provided by a local business!  Can you say “Corporate Sponsorship”??  Thanks to Solid Networks for the fantastic Last JedIPA from Tioga Sequoia! Cheers!

Rodbo and the Ale Evangelist also drank another amazing beer from New Glory (do they make any other kind?)  They completely lost their minds over the luscious and tart Key Lime Gose! Along with this, they discussed the gose style, and whether or not the Key Lime Gose fits. Edutainment at its finest on this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!

Podcast: AB Eats the World, Film at 11

Gose and Blood Orange Gose. Nice, refreshing beers for these hot, fall days.

Gose and Blood Orange Gose. Nice, refreshing beers for these hot, fall days.

These days, it seems like every other day is filled with the news of Annheuser Busch acquiring yet another entity. They are the Borg of Beer these days. No Craft Brewery or Massive Brewing Conglomerate is safe.

But is the sky really falling? Is the craft beer empire being taken over, brewery by brewery, never to rise again? Will BevMos carry nothing but fizzy, yellow swill. In this episode the Scotsman, flying solo, pontificates upon the nature of craft beer, and how we can never return to the “dark ages of beer.”

Today, in the information age, fine craft beer is at your fingertips, and you’ll never have to settle for less again. But has ABInBev gotten too big for its britches?

The Scotsman also covers a new story about the Justice Department investigating AB’s business practices. All that and the Scotsman tries some new Gose beers from Anderson Valley Brewing on the Ale Evangelist Show!

Podcast: The Market & Trying New Beers

A sour , salted sour brewed with watermelon juice? Salty melons, indeed!

A sour , salted sour brewed with watermelon juice? Salty melons, indeed!

In this show, the Scotsman and Drew try a fantastic sour (Paradox Beer Company’s Scully #30) provided to them by Patrick at The Market @ La Comisaria. If you love craft beer and are anywhere near Modesto, you NEED to be visiting the Market located at 500 7th St in downtown Modesto. Amazing craft beer selection, great, friendly service, and a fantastic meat counter.

Also discussed are how to take the plunge and try new beers.  Been interested in breaking out of that rut of drinking the same ol’ beer every night or weekend? The ale evangelists discuss ways you can be successful at trying new things! (Hint: One way is stopping by The Market and talking with Patrick! He won’t steer you wrong!)
