Imperial Irish Coffee Chocolate Milk Oatmeal Oyster Stout

Stout is a very old style of beer. It's been around since 1700's at least. The style has always been loved but it's not always been popular. The running joke is "want a knife and fork to go with your beer" is unfounded. Stout, while thick and creamy, is often lighter, smoother and more flavorful then some icky American lagers. There are many different recipes for Stout including: Irish, Imperial, Milk, Oatmeal, Chocolate, Coffee and Oyster. Some consider the Porter style to be a Stout as well as the Stout style grew out of Porter beer. Today most breweries consider the styles to be distinct.

Beers on the show:
Almost every kind of stout. See the class photo.

Lots of people have the impression that fruit beer is "girly beer." That it tastes like sugared up soda pop. Fact is, fruit beer has been made for centuries.

We've chosen some of our favorites for the show.

Leinenkugel Brewing

Rank #4: Root Beer

Root Beer

Root Beer is the invention of Charles E. Hires. As legend has it he discovered, developed, stumbled upon or borrowed (aka stole) the recipe while on his honeymoon. Charles trained as a pharmacist so he was probably keen to tastes and smells. He also was aware of what people liked of didn't like as they were sure to complain while picking up the stuff to end what ailed them. Hires become the tycoon of root beer overseeing it's production until 1925 when his son's took over the business. He died in 1937.

There is no right way to make root beer. Brewers from around the world are up to the task of developing their own take. Several things is consistent though: it should have bite, it should feel creamy, adn the head should be big for this sassy drink to be considered classic.

One Beer One Hundred Days

The homework is what defined this show which was to buy two cases of something fresh then drink a beer every three days for 100 days. You have to take notes as you go noted that "nothing changed" or "it's changing" or "I like/don't like it anymore." It's the freshness experiment.

Part of idea of doing this homework comes from us noting how beer changes over time at breweries that we visit. Sometimes beer changes for the better as it ages. We've also noticed that beer peaks. It gets really good at some point in it's life but from then on it's never as good.

There are many factors that make a beer change over time some of these things act in tandem. Heat, light, cold, varying temperature, and time.

Homework
See above. Be sure to report back what you find at the end of your two cases!

Rank #7: Repeal Day

Podcast cover
Read more
Repeal Day

Prohibition was repealed earlier in 1933 but the change to the amendement did not come into affect until December the 5th. On this day beer was delivered to President Roosevelt  who exclaimed "I think this would be a good time for a beer."

2008 resembles 1933 in lots of different ways. Bank bailouts, financial ruin, people losing their homes and different groups trying to force their views onto the people. Prop 8 passing in California is a good example of this. Do a search for 1933 to see for yourself.

Homework
Enjoy a beer, wine or something mixed on December 5th. it's your constitutional right.

Rank #10: Fritz from 98

Podcast cover
Read more
we're going on a field trip using the time machine. you don't need a signed permission slip. most of you won't need to worry about running into yourself but do leave your technology behind to avoid the off chance of losing it in the past. 

October of 1998 in Napa California our destination to hear Fritz Maytag speaking at the Northern California Homebrewers Festival. time travel being what it is lands us in mid sentence skipping the introduction. so it's a bit confusing for a minute. I think its worth hearing as it offers a perspective to what is happening in brewing today.

Fritz talks for 26 minutes. if you get board or can't stand the audio skip ahead. nobody will be offended. sorry about the audio quality. remember it's 1998 and it's pretty good considering the source.

remember... time travel responsibly.

And as weird as you might think that is the beer is actually pretty good. Okay, we admit that pumpkin isn’t something that we’re going to seek out. It’s not going to become our go to beer any time soon. But it is an interesting thing to take to the football or costume party. While you might only have one you’ll be a braver person because of it.

Beer by BART (other part)

most people don't consider taking public transportation for fun. while everyone thinks of it as a way to commute few people ride to destinations that might have tasty food and interesting things to drink. Gail and Steve made a website that documents where you might go along any of the places BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) stops. while the show has it's roots in local we talk about how you could replicate this in your own city if it hasn't already been done.

Beers on the show:
Clipper City Pale Ale, Bell's Hop Slam, Brewer's Art Resurrection, Clipper City Brewing Heavy Seas and Gail's homebrew.

Homework: plan a trip to somewhere haven't been using a train, street car, light rail, BART, bus or cable car.
