Podcast: Rodbo is Punished

On this long-awaited episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Rodbo returns, only to be accosted with a Double IPA from Revision Brewing.  Will this be the hop-laden elixir that finally convinces Rodbo that hops are not the demon-plant he has made them out to be? Will he actually admit that he was misguided and fooled by the hop-haters? Will he finally step into the light?  Listen and find out.

Because the beer world won’t stop talking about it, neither will the Ale Evangelists, so on this episode they discuss whether hazy IPA is really heralding the end of the golden age of craft beer.

And because it wouldn’t be the show without some levity, they read some reviews on the biggest swiss army knife you’ve ever seen! (Pictured above.)

Finally, the Scotsman answers a listener question in great detail about whether you should do a primary and secondary fermentation for your beers.

Podcast: Old Dogs of Brewing

The Sentry IPA, from New Glory Brewing Company. Does it live up to the hype? Listen and find out!

On this short episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman flies the show alone and tries the Sentry IPA from New Glory Brewing Company. They bill this bad boy as a West Coast IPA, so the Scotsman talks about the American IPA style and discusses whether or not this beer is classified correctly. In addition, the Scotsman covers an article from BeerAdvocate magazine written by Andy Crouch about how the Old Dogs of Brewing are relying on some New Tricks.  Is it worth it? Will it save Craft Beer? Is craft beer really worth saving if it means the inclusion of these adulterated adult beverages?

Finally on a more concerning note, the Scotsman makes a heartfelt plea for prayer for the Rodbo family. Details are in this show.

Podcast: IPA Day

On this bitter, floral episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Drew are overwhelmed by the bitterness of IPA Day as the same the Yakima Express from Silva Brewing Company.  Even after a month in the can, this beer is almost too bitter for the both of them.

They talk about the history of IPA Day, which is a happy subject.

Then, they shift to the recent acquisition of Anchor Brewing Company by Sapporo.

A cool discussion of the history of both of these venerable organizations means you don’t want to miss the next episode of the Ale Evangelist Show.
