    Give It A Shot - Yuengling Traditional Amber Lager  

    Thanks to longtime listener and friend of the show Charlie we are going to embark on a mostly beer tasting of the east coast.  Since he was on his way back to Arizona he thought it would be cool for us to try a variety of things we just can't find here.  After sizing up the beverage bounty that lay before us we decided to go with not only the most well know, but also what we are sure is the lightest of the bunch.  Yuengling has been around since 1829 and is America's oldest operating brewery.  They make a variety of beers including a Black and Tan which I thought sounded interesting.  The Traditional Amber Lager is not only their number one seller, but also the beer were given to try.  Time to taste and get our "East Coast Swing" series rolling.  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 - New Belgium Hoppy Bock Lager

    What the Helles have we brought to the tasting table today?  A Helles Bock or Maibock of course!  This is the first of four beers in a new series from New Belgium Brewing called Hop Kitchen.  The beer being poured today is called Hoppy Bock Lager and is made with rye (always a favorite) and a blend of three hops:  Hallertauer, Perle and Fuggle.  This blend of European hops should help to add an earthy, spiciness to this German-style lager.  This appears to be the only one of the bunch that is not going to be an IPA as the others will be a French Aramis IPA, a Fresh Hop IPA and a Rewind IPA.  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.
