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!

Podcast – When Selling Out Doesn’t Sell

Half Baked sounds like a gooey brownie, but does the beer live up? Does a bear fall in the forest? Am I mixing my metaphors? Whatever, this beer is rad.

On this Welcome Back episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Rodbo discuss the nature of selling out.  Is that what Wicked Weed of Asheville, North Carolina recently did when they were acquired by ABInBev, or is this all just a big misunderstanding? Join us as we talk about what happened with Wicked Weed’s festival, Funkatorium.  Decisions have consequences, and we get the feeling Wicked Weed is just beginning to feel theirs. And is this any different than what Lagunitas has done by selling out to Heineken?

The show beer this week is the fantastic Half Baked Brownie Porter from the amazing New Glory Brewing Company out of Sacramento. All this, and a couple new beer releases and the news that Speakeasy LIVES!  You don’t want to miss this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!
