    Give It A Shot - Modern Times Beer Mega Black House Imperial Stout 

    This week at About Beverages, we will be sharing not one, but two new things with you, our valued listener/viewer! The first is something we have been searching for now for several years. It’s not a beverage, but it is something we hope you will enjoy each time you listen to our podcast. Since we want to have our beverage community involved in everything we do, at various times in the past we have reached out to any musicians in our audience who may have wanted to contribute any snippets of instrumental music that we could use on our show. Well, one of our friends, and now with his musical contribution, “Friend of the Show,” Dave in Nevada, had us listen to something he and his band recorded almost 20 years ago that he felt would be perfect. After listening, we agree! This weeks podcast will be the first time we are using his music on our show.  We are pretty excited about it, and in the near future, we may be giving away some of his CDs that include this song. We will have more on that later as we work out the details.

    As for the beverage we trying, it is another offering from one of our new favorite breweries, Modern Times in San Diego. It is from their Special Release Series and is called Mega Black House Stout. This beer is available for a limited time and is an imperialized version of their Black House stout, which is available year round. Coffee? Beer? Together? This sounds like a challenge that we are more than happy to take on, and we did.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout

    Oh Sierra Nevada.  We know your skill at making beers with wonderful hop character, but an Imperial Stout?  Sure you have gone to the dark side before with your porter and stout, but in all honesty that's not what first comes to mind when we think of you.  It is with great interest and excitement then that today we will be trying the Narwhal Imperial Stout.  One of three beers that can be found in their High Altitude series of the "biggest and boldest" they have ever brewed.  They have some tough competition after the Ten Fidy we had on Tuesday, but we bet their up for the challenge.  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 - Oskar Blues Ten Fidy Imperial Stout

    A beer in a can kicks off our salute to the Imperial Stout this week.  The Ten Fidy from Oskar Blues Brewing is so named because of its alcohol content of 10.50%.  It brings not only a heavy dose of dark malts and 98 IBUs, but also a substantial list of accolades.  One would think this beer would be a slam dunk to win over our palates as well.  Not so fast.  You'll have to watch the video to find out for sure where it hits on our recommendation scale.  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.
