    Give It A Shot - Modern Times Beer Membata Coffee Stout

    We know that it is getting down to the wire, but better late than never as we continue on with our Thanksgiving suggestions podcasts. We change gears as we move to the beer category to discuss something we think could be a part of your celebration. We will be trying the Membata from Modern Times, which many of you know is one of our favorite breweries. This beer is a coffee stout, but other than that, we were not able to find too much information. Based on our experience and our familiarity with Modern Times, we are hoping that this beer helps you take the step from beverages paired with turkey and sides to beverages paired with dessert and eventually to heavier sippers consumed slowly around the glow of the fire. At least those are our plans...  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Belching Beaver Brewery Peanut Butter Milk Stout

    So many different expressions come to mind when we think of peanut butter being combined with another tasty ingredient. “You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!” “Well you got your peanut butter in my chocolate!” No matter how you see it, they were, and still are, two great tastes that taste great together. For this podcast, we visit a brewery that has taken the great taste of peanut butter and combined it with a beer, a milk stout, to be exact. The beverage we will be trying is the Peanut Butter Milk Stout from Belching Beaver out of San Diego. The dark creamy goodness of a stout should pair well with peanut butter as long as all of the components are done properly, but one never knows.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Thunder Canyon Brewery Warhead Stout

    For this weeks podcast we decided we were too tired to travel and decided to stay local. This beer was sourced from Tap and Bottle North (again) and is brewed right here in Tucson. Join us as we try the Warhead Stout from Thunder Canyon Brewstillery. This is one that Andrew has enjoyed several times before but he has only had it on draft so this will be a new adventure for both of us.  What did we think? Sit back and watch or listen.

    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.

    Give It A Shot - Modern Times Beer Black House Coffee Stout

    We have not even made an attempt to keep secret our enjoyment of Modern Times Beer and our longing for them to start distributing to Arizona.  Founded just over a year ago by Jacob McKean a long-time homebrewer and former Stone Brewing Co. employee.  Most of their lineup and limited releases to this point have been heavily weighted toward beers involving copious amounts of hops, hops and more hops.  Today at the tasting table we have one of their year round releases that diverges a bit from that formula.  The Black House Coffee Stout uses two types of coffee (Ethiopian and Sumatra) roasted in house as part of the recipe.  This also pushes forward our website's continued search for great beer found in a can.  Time to taste and see if this lives up to our already highly caffeinated expectations.  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.

    Give It A Shot - Founders Brewing KBS Barrel Aged Stout

    What do you get when you take a stout, add copious (I love that word) amounts of chocolate and coffee, then barrel age it in a cave for 12 months?  You get the KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) from Founders Brewing.  Normally when something isn't available year round we throw out the designation of seasonal.  In this case that season is a little tighter than normal.  It's available in April.  We know that was three months ago, but depending on your local bottle shop they may have a few still hidden behind the counter for a rainy day.  When we bought ours they were only allowing one per person at $6 for a 12oz bottle.  Time to taste and see if this 11% stout lives up to the "highly acclaimed" status they put on their labels.  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.

    Live on Location at Tap and Bottle Featuring Iron John's Brewing Part One

    The moment is finally here!  Our first ever Live on Location.  Today will be Part One of our three part interview with Scott and Rebecca, the owners of Tap and Bottle.  During the show we will be discussing a variety of topics including the abundance of local breweries opening up in Tucson.  To go along with our chat, Scott and Rebecca brought a bottle of the San Patricio Irish Whiskey-Oaked Dry Stout from Iron John's Brewing to our traveling tasting table.  It goes without saying it was a good start to the day.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Live on Location" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.
