A malty, grainy, strong scotch ale!

On this show, the Scotsman and Rodbo play 4 voicemails(!), discuss Waldo’s Special Ale, the Scotsman mocks IPA-hating Rodbo for making his first Dust Bowl Brewing’s HOPS OF WRATH, and they are also introduced to Gigantic Brewing Company with a malty, grainy strong scotch ale. It’s a fun show, where the Scotsman defends his view of Dagny vs. Sandude, his rant about Dagny, and why he still drinks Lagunitas.

Podcast: What is beer?

The name (and the beer) is a mouthful! Dried apricot, sparkling cider...not of one style,  but appropriating aspects of many!

The name (and the beer) is a mouthful! Dried apricot, sparkling cider…not of one style, but appropriating aspects of many!

The Scotsman and Drew discuss the ingredients of beer: Barley, Hops, Water, and Yeast. What are these simple-yet-Oh-So-Complex ingredients and how do brewers use them to make the liquid awesomeness of beer? In this podcast, we answer some questions: Is there really a beer purity law in Germany? What was the Reinheitsgabot instituted for? Are there any other ingredients used in the creation of this most wonderful beverage? In the midst of all of this, they enjoy a Rogue New Crustacean Barleywineish Imperial IPA Sorta. (Yeah, that’s the name. Leave it to Rogue.)
