    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Ninkasi, The Alchemist, Stone Collaboration Beer More Brown Than Black IPA

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  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.  Another day, another dollar, and another collaboration brew from Stone Brewing and friends.  More Brown Than Black IPA is from the collective brain trust of Ninkasi, The Alchemist, and Stone.  The idea was to create a beer that was still very hop forward, but not quite as roasty and dark as a black IPA.  The other part to this collective story is that The Alchemist Brewery is in Waterbury, Vermont and was hit quite hard last year by hurricane Irene.  To help out the surrounding area proceeds from the sale of this beer will go to help out families affected by the hurricane.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Jefferson's Small Batch Bourbon (Video)

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  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.  When we're not tasting beer apparently we seem to have a soft spot for bourbon and that's exactly what we'll be trying today.  Jefferson's small batch bourbon is distilled by McLain and Kyne using limestone water from Kentucky.  What does "Very Small Batch Bourbon" actually mean?  Well instead of selecting 200-300 barrels of whiskey to be blended together for small batch bourbon, they only use 8-12 barrels of varying ages to ensure consistency.  Let's see if that pays off in the flavor.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Clown Shoes Lubrication Black Ale (Video)

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  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.  Clown Shoes Lubrication which doesn't sound like the name of a beer, but the beginning of the most amazing joke ever, is an American black ale.  I had been seeing a lot of beers at our local Total Wine from this brand for some time now and decided to pick one up.  Even though this is our first official review of a beer from Mercury Brewing, listeners who look through our Drink Database will recognize that Keith has sampled a few of their beers before and quite enjoyed them.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Rogue Brewing Dead Guy Ale (Video)

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  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.  I'm as shocked as you are that this podcast turned into a video.  I mean, I knew we were recording it, but I didn't think it would come together as well as it did.  In fact it also gave me the opprotunity to try out our new editing software.  I'm still getting the hang of it, but I think with each video we do, it's only going to get better.  I guess before I ramble anymore I should mention that the beverage being tasted today is the Dead Guy Ale from Rogue Brewing.  Originally created to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead, this German style Maibock comes in at an ABV of 6.5% and has been around since the early 1990s.  How it hadn't found its way to our tasting table until now is just crazy, but today we make things right.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Rogue Brewing Voodoo Doughnut (Video)

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  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.  If we said bacon maple donut, what would be the first thing that comes to your mind?  If you said, "One of the latest seasonals from Rogue Brewing" than you obviously read the title of this post and cannot be trusted to play guessing games.  No matter.  Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale is what we are trying today on the podcast and in the video.  We know this beer may sound like just another strange gimmick, but just watch and find out.  You'll notice the tasting room is a little barren at the moment, but soon it will be filled with assorted memorabilia and all things beverages.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Paddleford Creek Bourbon (Video)

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  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.  Bourbon is the beverage of choice for the podcast today and what better way to celebrate our love for the oak aged libation than with our first video!  We were intially going to make the podcast on Thursday be our first video feature, but we couldn't wait.  Paddleford Creek is a small batch borbon that is quite difficult to find any information about.  Seriously.  I have been doing research for days.  Other than the info on the bottle (charcoal filtered, 83 proof, etc.) everything else is shrouded in mystery.  Best guess I have seen is that it's made by Phillips Distilling Company from Wisconsin.  That could be good or bad.  One thing this Bears fan knows for sure is that a lot of this whiskey is being sold to drown the sorrows of many a Packer fan today.  An audio only version of the podcast is still available for download.

    More bourbon mixed drinks with Bulleit

    I was doing a little more research on the Bulleit Bourbon we tried during our podcast and found this video with Hollis Bulleit.  She is the daughter of Tom Bulleit maker of this wonderful spirit.  The interview is with Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen and Whitney Adams of Brunellos Have More Fun.  Enjoy!

    More fun with bacon flavored vodka on the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.

    This is a clip that aired in June of last year on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.  In the clip they discuss the bacon flavored vodka I had previously posted about.  Toward the end Conan has Andy Richter taste it and give his opinion.  It goes without saying that this is very funny.  Enjoy!

    P.S.  See you in seven months Conan!
