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.

Rank #8: IPA

Podcast cover
Read more
IPA - this is the long though lost IPA show. it was recorded last fall on August 23.

there are a few things that continuously bug me about IPA.

1) none of it is going to India. so there's no reason to call it this anymore.
2) if you look up the recipe for IPA from the books publish 150 years ago you will find something not that much more then the Pale ale of the time.
3) these beers were aged in barrels of unknown conditions for at least 120 before they were consumed. this is very different from the out of the fermenter and into the serving tank in 14 days repeat that the local breweries have to maintain.
4) lots of people order IPA because it's the simplest thing to order on the beer list. having clever names doesn't help the knob buying beer.
5) or they are ordering the beer because its the highest ABV on the list. they aren't drinking it for the hops, balance or aroma. it might as well be Colt 45.

Black IPA is very interesting to me as an evolutionary style. when done correctly it makes a very drinkable beer. however the trend I'm bugged about is using the malt as color not for adding another flavor. the Windmer BIPA tasted like this. don't take that as me not liking that beer. it was very good. but it'd doesn't look like it tastes.

beer on the show:
Pliney the Elder from Russian River
Racer 5 from Bear Republic
Stone IPA from Stone Brewing
Imperial IPA from Anderson Valley
Liberty Ale from Anchor Brewing

Note: these are all local beers for us. and it's why we choose them for the show.

Belgium by Bus

so you want to get away? but the beach doesn't interest you. the thought of seeing a giant hole in the ground that isn't doing it for you. and standing in a line to see robots sing and dance doesn't even remotely peek your interest. why not tour a country that has a tradition of making really great beer instead? yes you (and your new friends) could be traversing Belgium in search of that perfect pint.

there's lots of ways to tour a country. you could go it alone where it's to you to research and plan every move. you will need a least a map and a book. and that can be daunting. you could sign up for a tour that would take you from place to place on a giant bus. but because of it's size you won't see the small farm house off the side road. the better tour is on the short bus with not very many people. and the guide you want is somebody that isn't just doing it for the money. they are doing it because they love the beer they are taking you to.

Stu Stuart of "Belgian Beer Me" does tours of Belgium beer. he's got a few to choose from. and if you can't go this year think about next year doing the similar tour about the same time of year.

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.

Rock & Roll

Beer has always included music. For centuries in fact. Whether it was live music played by professionals in the club, sung by everyone sitting around the campfire or the locals at their local breaking out instruments and voice just because. 

if you want a particular song removed you must 1) invite yourself onto a future show. 2) explain why you really hate your fans, that you didn't write it for the money in the first place, complain about not getting paid by your label, play the song for us live. 3) if you do all that and it's still gone we won't listen to you anymore. we promise!
