Podcast – The Vicious Vinyl Homebrewer

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman, Rodbo, and Drew are joined by a very special guest. Homebrewer Scott from the Ripon Brewins joins us to pour 4 of his homebrews for the show. He poured an American Amber, a Chocolate Brownie Stout (dude, I could drink a KEG of this), a Pumpkin Pie Ale, and a Pale Ale.

The guys discuss the intentions and inspiration of the brewer, the differences in various styles, and provide very few pointers on how the beers can be improved. (Good stuff, Scott!  Cheers!) It was a lot of fun, and this episode is not without the rabbit trails the guys have become known for.

The State of Jefferson makes a reappearance, and the Vicious Vinyl Homebrewer explains how he got his Instagram name.

Podcast: Knee Deep…In Beer

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Whitey, Rodbo, and the Scotsman sip some listener-provided IPA. The show beer this week is brought to you by Patrick Krebbs, who supplied a caramel-malt-forward IPA from Dragonmead Brewing out in Michigan (a Midwest brewery, I’ll have you know!).

Next, the guys talk about the lawsuit against Knee Deep Brewing out of Auburn by Sony Pictures. Were people really confusing Breaking Bud with the hit show Breaking Bad? Did folks really assume that the highly successful Breaking Bud beer was affiliated with Sony? A judge is going to have to decide, as Sony is actually asking for DAMAGES in this case.

A second show beer, brought by Whitey is a Washington stout that the guys drink in honor of Dave Bowman of Plausibly Live!

Finally, the guys can’t stay away from the State of Jefferson Brewfest, and the Scotsman goes a little further in his characterization of those who are pro-State-of-Jefferson…please send us angry voicemails!

Hilarity ensures on this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show.

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: Never Fear…Glitter Beer!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On this wandering, wide-ranging episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Whitey and the Scotsman talk about everything from Koolickles (which they actually TASTE on the show) to glitter beer, to retro video games, to spiders, to unique beer dispensing methods, to entering the beer fest season. They go all OVER the place.

Show beers for this random show are the Cleophus Quealy Oatmeal Stout, and the Morgan Territory Hoptomic Double IPA, both dispensed by The Sub, which they also talk about.

Finally, listener Johnny K submits a question/challenge to the Ale Evangelists, which they answer and discuss on the show. Don’t miss this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!

Podcast: A Pair of Coconuts

Covered Bridge Brown PLUS coconut? Sign me up!

On this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Rodbo and the Scotsman try out some new technology, hopefully enabling them to do more regular shows, even when they can’t be in the same room! They try the Palaunu Brown Ale from Last Call Brewing Co. in Oakdale, CA, and discuss how neither of them like coconut…so how do they feel it works in this beer? Listen and find out.

They also talk about some of the various events at SF Beer Week, happening from February 9th through the 18th. You guys, there are so many events, there’s no way you could hit them all.

Finally, the guys cover the difference between an ale and lager, and how it really has little to do with flavor or appearance.
