    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? 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 - 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 - New Belgium Brewing The Hemperor

    For several years now, for better or for worse, it has not been uncommon to see a beer augmented in some way by the addition of something besides one of the four necessary ingredients to make a beer. Some of these include, but are not limited to, several varieties of fruit (or the juice from the fruit), chocoolate, spices, natural flavorings, and even chile peppers. We recently came across an entirely different type of ingredient that we had never seen before in a beer, hemp. Certainly this would be a funky adventure, definitely worth sharing with our listeners. Join us as we try The Hemperor, an HPA from New Belgium Brewery. Just remember not to inhale.... or go ahead, it's your choice.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Surly Brewing Todd the Axe Man IPA

    Depending on the time and situation, shopping is one of those tasks that can be either tedious or enjoyable. Frustrating or revelatory. Drudgery or seemingly over before it has begun. For us, beverage shopping is a time for fun and thirst quenching discovery. The topic of this podcast was discovered during a recent trip to our local Total Wine. We had heard of this brewery and the beer itself receives good ratings and rave reviews on line, but until recently it had not been available in Arizona. The beer we will be trying this week is called Todd the Axe Man from Surly Brewing Company in Minnesota. It is named after their brewer and the fact that he also is a guitar player. It is a West Coast Style IPA with a super cool looking can.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Pueblo Vida and Arizona Wilderness Terminalia IPA

    When your brother and co-founder of AboutBeverages.com tells you he is going down to one of Tucson’s best local breweries your natural reaction is to ask him to pick up a four pack for you (that you will reimburse him for of course-this stuff ain’t cheap). This scenario happened to us very recently with Andrew being the one doing the journeying and Keith being the one doing the requesting. I put the decision of which beer to buy for me in Andrew’s capable hands and shortly after he placed that beer in my grateful hands we decided that it would be the beer we did on our podcast this week. The beer we will be trying this week is the Terminalia which is a collaboration of Pueblo Vida (local) and Wilderness (sort of local). What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition Whiskey

    Irish whiskey and an IPA. At first glance these two may not have much in common. A combination not often thought of, at least not as often as Irish whiskey, Bailey’s, and Guinness, but I digress. Look closer, however, and you will possibly see a match made in heaven, or at least in Ireland. For this podcast we wanted to celebrate the milestone of reaching 50 followers (which we have now moved past) with something special so we chose the Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition whiskey. Watch and drink along with us as we explore the sensory revelations of this interesting pairing. We also want to say a big Thank You to all of our followers and subscribers! We couldn’t do it without you. Well, we could and we have, but it’s definitely not as much fun!  What do you think?
