    Give It A Shot - Hop Valley Brewing Cryo Stash Imperial IPA

    Time sure goes by quickly when you are doing something you love. We know that’s true because this week in which we released three podcasts has sure flown by! To put that in an even larger scope, we can’t believe how quickly ten years has flown by. Why do we even mention that you may ask? Well, believe it or not, About Beverages has been around for over 10 years now and next month we will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the release of our very first podcast. More information on that will follow in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. For now though, let’s get back to this week. This podcast is the third and final release for the week and we will be traveling to Oregon for this beverage. We will be trying the Cryo Stash Imperial IPA from Hop Valley Brewing Company out of Eugene Oregon. This beer features Simcoe Hops treated at sub zero temperatures. What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Pumpkin Beers 2014 Part 2 - Southern Tier Brewing Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale and Warlock Imperial Pumpkin Stout

    Part two of our Pumpkin Beer Fest 2014 is doubling down on two things:  We have two beers from the same brewery and have gone bigger with our style as both are imperial.  At the tasting table today we have the Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale and the Warlock Imperial Pumpkin Stout from Southern Tier Brewing.  They are both seasonal (obviously), but are separated into two different categories on their website.  The Pumking is part of their seasonal Imperial Series and the Warlock is part of their Blackwater Series.  Both have raised the alcohol to a nice 8.6% ABV and use pumpkin during part of the brewing process.  This may seem like a nit picky thing to some, but the use of pumpkin when done properly will add to the overall flavor, mouthfeel and harmony of all the other flavors.  Time to carve open another couple bottles and see if either have a chance of becoming the champion for this year.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Ballast Point Brewing Tongue Buckler Imperial Red Ale

    We finished last week with a sesonal beer from Ballast Point that was quite delicious so why not start the week with another.  The Tongue Buckler is an Imperial Red Ale with, as the labels says, has "More and more malt than any land lubber can handle."  With off the scale IBUs and 10% ABV this beer should make good on its name.  If it doesn't, then I guess they will need to walk the plank.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.
