    Give It A Shot - Echigo Beer Flying IPA

    With this episode, we officially make it a week of firsts here at About Beverages as we again try something from a category we have never before tried on our show. We also continue our trend of unintended theme weeks as both of this weeks selections come to us from the other side of the Pacific Ocean. We have tried a lot of beer on our show, but we have never before tried an IPA from Japan. Recently, Andrew was at a local international supermarket and found himself in the beer section, where he made this selection. On this episode we will be trying the Echigo Beer Flying IPA. Featuring Citra hops and an ABV of 5.5%, this beer comes from a brewery located in Niigata Prefecture. What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Modern Times Beer Dreamspeaker IPA

    It is always a good thing to try something new. Take a step outside the comfort zone. Expand one’s horizons. Explore uncharted territory. For this particular show we will be doing none of those things. We will be re-visiting one of our favorite breweries and trying a style of beer we are very familiar with which is made with hops we have most certainly tried before. We guess it should be noted that we have never had this exact beer and the unique combination of malt and hops contained therein. The last few sentences might make it seem like we were not excited to try this beer, but that assumption would be incorrect. The beverage we will be trying on this podcast is the Dreamspeaker IPA from Modern Times. It is their monthly release for March and April and also features some cool, if not visually disorienting, graphics. What did we think?

    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 - Pueblo Vida Chroma IPA

    This podcast begins a busy week for us here at About Beverages. As we mentioned last week, due to a busy December, while we continued to record videos we got behind in the actual sharing of those videos with you, our valued friend and viewer/listener. This will be the first of three that will be released this week and we will kick things off with a local brewery where we have previously encountered deliciousness. The beverage we will be trying is the Chroma from Pueblo Vida Brewing Company. Chroma is a series that they do where they brew an IPA and feature a new “craft maltster” with each release. This release features Admiral Maltings out of Alameda, California. What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Stone Brewing MoJay IPA

    Sometimes the availability of a beer, much like time itself, is fleeting. Through the lens of youth, one looks to the future and it seems endless. In what seems like the blink of an experienced eye we realize that is not the case and no matter what your age tomorrow is promised to no one. On a similar, though not as deeply philosophical scale, a delicious beer being available tomorrow is also promised to no one. In addition to their usual offerings, most breweries now brew beers to only be offered at the brewery or in very limited release. These “one-offs” are most often highly prized and are rewards for those individuals willing to sacrifice their time and a few extra hard-earned dollars to procure them. We are fortunate to have one of these beers on our podcast. This week we will be trying the Mojay IPA from Stone Brewing. It is made with Mosaic hops and according to the people at Stone it brought to mind fresh squeezed orange juice, hence the name.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Modern Times Beer Space Ways Hazy Nelson IPA

    A new beer release from one of your favorite breweries is definitely a reason to get excited. Even with so many new beers available from so many great new and established “suds houses,” there are still those offerings from certain places that we look forward to a little more than the others. This weeks podcast definitely features one of those breweries and their latest seasonal offering which is also a brand new addition to their lineup. This podcast finds us jumping palate first into the Space Ways from Modern Times Beer. It is a hazy IPA featuring Nelson, Simcoe, and Motueka hops. One of us was so excited to try this beer he didn’t wait for the podcast to try it for the first time. He has since been disciplined and it won’t happen again. Listen to the podcast to find out who has trouble with delaying his beer gratification.  What did we think?

    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?
