Podcast: Green Flash in the Pan?

This beer might contain no juice, but that didn’t stop it from being JUICY!

On this episode, Whitey and the Scotsman get to drink Contains No Juice by the most excellent Alvarado Street Brewing Company. It really deserves its name, and is really a great beer.  

With that out of the way, the guys begin to talk about the current goings-on with Green Flash Brewing Company. How has such a stalwart beer in the California Beer scene had such a precipitous decline? Well, the Scotsman put some legwork in and took a look at many of the press releases going back to 2013 with regards to Green Flash’s acquisitions, expansions, and even some departures. Does it tell a picture of someone who grew too much, too quickly, or was this simply a case where the market turned against them? Well, you be the judge, but we think you’ll find the history tells the tale. Find the timeline that Scotsman put together: here.

Recording is always a good time. PC: Whitey

Somehow they end up talking about the State of Jefferson, serial killers, and the criminal justice system (?). All in a day’s work on this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!

Podcast: The Beer Fix

Nice and crisp IPA. I believe Patrick still has these, so go git some!

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Whitey, Drew, and the Scotsman are joined once again by Hank Olson of the Food Fix Truck to talk food, flavors, koolickles (?) and beer.

The guys drink Crux’s Cast Out IPA, Mikkeller’s Hammerhead Corvette Double NE IPA, and Blaker Brewing’s absolutely delectable Pineapple Milkshake IPA. What do they think of these hop showcases? Well, you should listen and find out.

They talk what’s new at the Food Fix Truck, chat about the absolute best name for a sandwich EVER, and what Hank’s current favorite Fix is on the truck, the Food Fix Folks’ plan for a brick and mortar establishment, and whether or not you’ll ever see Koolickles on the truck. (You may hear them on the next show!)

Oh man. Luscious, juicy, yumminess. Not an IPA, sure, but an amazing beer.

Finally, on the beer side of the experience, the guys talk about IBU’s, whether they really describe anything, and why some of these new-fangled IPA’s aren’t nearly as bitter as they used to be. They talk about IPA’s of the past, and why these teeth-grinding hop bombs were so bitter, and what’s changed.

As always when Hank joins them, they have a lot of fun, so you definitely want to check out this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!

Podcast: Whither Sandude?

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.

But the Scotsman and Drew don’t crash Rodbo’s house without bringing that gift of gifts: excellent, well-crafted beer.

They drink the Juice Box Hero from Central Coast Brewing Co. and talk all things Central Coast, as the Scotsman has recently returned from Cambria and sampling all the wonderful breweries thereabouts.

In addition to the frivolity of the Ale Evangelists getting together, they also talk about some exciting news regarding St. Stan’s Brewing Co!

Podcast: Beer Doesn’t Grow Up

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

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!
