On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Rodbo, Drew, and the Scotsman enjoy a rare treat: A side-by-side tasting of a 2013 and 2017 Brother Thelonius Belgian Dark Strong! The rich malty goodness only gets better with age, and this one has definitely improved.

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.

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!
