    Give It A Shot - Modern Times Beer Critical Band IPA

    It is no secret that Modern Times is one of our favorite breweries. Last year, one of their monthly releases was a favorite that stood out among all of their stellar offerings, at least for Keith. It is one he has spoken highly of and remembered fondly now for the past 8 to 9 months. At long last, this beer has been released for 2018 and we decided it needed to be shared with you on a podcast. The beer we are talking about is the Critical Band IPA and it is Modern Times monthly release for the summer months, June thru August.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - El Segundo Brewing Gotta Get It IPA

    Recently, both of us found ourselves on vacation in the great state of California. We were not able to hang out together, but one of the things we did have in common was that we were in search of new beers to try. Whether at a restaurant or pub or at a bottle shop, we were constantly on the lookout for something that might not be available to us locally. This week we have one of those beers to share with you. It is the Gotta Get It IPA from El Segundo Brewing. The label had the words “Dope and Dank” on it, so we knew we were off to a good start.  What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.

    Give It A Shot - Belching Beaver Brewery Digital Bath NEIPA

    This podcast features a beer from a brewery that has gotten a good amount of attention from us lately. They are from San Diego, and no, it is not Modern Times. We have become big fans of their beer even if we are not necessarily fans of their name. The beer we are trying is the Digital Bath NEIPA from Belching Beaver. It is another collaboration with the band the Deftones and it is named after one of their songs. It is brewed in a limited quantity and Andrew just happened to be in the right place at the right time and picked up a four pack at Tap and Bottle North.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Belching Beaver Brewery Peanut Butter Milk Stout

    So many different expressions come to mind when we think of peanut butter being combined with another tasty ingredient. “You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!” “Well you got your peanut butter in my chocolate!” No matter how you see it, they were, and still are, two great tastes that taste great together. For this podcast, we visit a brewery that has taken the great taste of peanut butter and combined it with a beer, a milk stout, to be exact. The beverage we will be trying is the Peanut Butter Milk Stout from Belching Beaver out of San Diego. The dark creamy goodness of a stout should pair well with peanut butter as long as all of the components are done properly, but one never knows.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Pizza Port Brewing Admiral Denali IPA

    Being in the right place at the right time can make what you are anticipating to be a great night even better. Pizza (the food) was already on the menu for our night of streaming and podcast recording and when Keith went to pick up the pizzas he was soon to find out that Pizza Port (the beer brewery) was also about to be on the menu. While waiting for the pizzas to finish baking, it was decided we would pick something from the draft menu at Whole Foods and have that be one of our evenings podcasts. That something that we wound up selecting was the Admiral Denali IPA from Pizza Port Brewing.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Trader Joe's Big Churn Chardonnay 2016

    Sometimes a thought is kicking around in your head for a while. You can’t quite figure out what it is, but that is alright. Eventually you notice it is not as much kicking as it is swirling.  The swirling eventually changes into a tumbling as the idea becomes something that can now be defined with the written word. As this process churns toward a conclusion it will soon become something that can be shared with whoever may want to listen. In this case, for this weeks podcast, we hope that person listening is you. Today we will be trying the Big Churn Chardonnay from California. This particular Chardonnay is made for those who are fans of the oaky style and we tend to fall into that category. What did we think?
