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: Drew’s Gone AWOL

On this episode, Rodbo and the Scotsman mock Drew, who forgot they were supposed to record today. They taste a couple of listener donated beers, as well as they talk about the Belgian Tripel and Dark Strong styles.

They talk about blood-alcohol levels and how many drinks it takes to get there.

Finally, they talk about whether or not Annheuser Busch is producing water or just being more honest on their labeling. It’s a grab bag of topics AND listener donated beer, with the trademark distractions and rabbit-trails you’ve come to know and love from the Ale Evangelist Show.

The Dark Reckoning from Morgan Territory. THIS is why you need to go there!

On this highly distractible episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Rodbo and the Scotsman drink the absolutely epic and tasty Dark Reckoning from Morgan Territory Brewing Company in Tracy, CA. How to describe it? Let’s just say this beer is an award-winner for GOOD REASON.

The Scotsman also describes what his visit to Morgan Territory was like. Rodbo and the Scotsman also have a small disagreement as to whether breweries should have food.  What do you think? Weigh in at 209-800-ALES, and let us know!

The Scotsman also explains a little about Morgan Territory’s history, and it goes back before they were known as Morgan Territory.

Cheers to Morgan Territory for having such amazing beers. If you’re wondering why you should go there, you don’t want to miss this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!

Podcast: The Return of Rodbo

On this rabbit-trail-riddled episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, Rodbo and the Scotsman discuss how great of a beer location Oregon is, as well as Rodbo AND Takuma’s trip to the Pacific Northwest. Rodbo brought back a braggot from Viking Braggot Company (http://drinkviking.com), which he actually enjoyed! (It was an IPA. Wonder of wonders!)

The guys also discuss the recent acquisition of Magnolia Beer Company in San Francisco, why several other breweries across the United States have closed in the last year, AND discuss why it’s difficult to open a brewery in this challenging beer climate. They had a good time with Rodbo returning to the show after some surgery, but they did have a hard time focusing.

Podcast: Be Judgemental, It’s a Good Thing!

One of the old-style scoresheets from BJCP competitions.

On this information-packed episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Drew sit down with Peter Munoz, certified beer judge, to talk about what beer judging is all about.

The guys talked about off flavors, beer scoring, and what judges are looking for in competitions. It might surprise you to know that beer judges aren’t judging based on whether or not they liked the beer, and that’s just the beginning of this dense subject.

Peter scores the Scotsman’s latest beer, and they talk about what could have made it better, and the guys all try a few of Peter’s beers.

Peter turned on the informational fire hose on this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show. You don’t want to miss it.
