    Give It A Shot - The Bruery Mischief Dry-Hopped With Citra And Motueka

    One of our favorite things to do is to go shopping for beers. We are usually seeking out something new or unique, hoping at the very least to find something we have not yet tried. Even when on vacation (usually in California), beer shopping is frequently on the itinerary as we are on the lookout for beers we can’t find in Arizona. In the last few years the list of breweries that do not distribute to Arizona has drastically shrunk in size with one unfortunate notable exception (this means YOU, Russian River). Why is all of this relevant? The answer is simple. The beer we are trying on this podcast was purchased in So Cal. While beers from this brewery are available in Arizona, this was still intriguing enough to make it into the cooler for the ride home. The beer we are trying this week is the Mischief from the Bruery. This particular Mischief features a dousing of Citra and Motueka hops and is a limited edition.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Classic Manhattan made with Pimm's Cup No. 1 Original

    The Manhattan has long been one of our favorite mixed drinks. When bourbon, sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters come together with ice in your favorite drink mixing vessel, your palate is not far from liquid bliss. Even though this combination is magic, we are not above tinkering around with the recipe to see what might be brought forth if we swapped out one ingredient for another. Some may call this beverage blasphemy, we call it an adventure. In the second installment of our podcasts featuring Pimm’s No. 1, we will be trying a Manhattan with Pimm’s standing in for the traditional sweet vermouth.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Pimm's Orginal No. 1 Cup

    As you know, we are always on the lookout for new beverages to try. We do focus quite a bit on beer, but we have expanded our horizons to regularly include wine and spirits, and we have many other ideas for types of beverages and some other fun themes as well planned for upcoming shows. This week we will definitely slip out of the comfort zone and boldly go where we have not gone before. We will be trying the Pimm’s No. 1 from England. It is a gin based liquor that got its start in the 1820’s. This will actually be the first of two podcasts featuring Pimm’s. In our next podcast we will be using it as one of the ingredients in a mixed drink. We will not reveal here what that drink will be but if you watch the podcast your curiosity will be satiated.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Basil Hayden's Bourbon

    As we look back over the years at About Beverages, we realize that we have a slight affinity for bourbon (wink, wink). While there are many bourbons out there that we have not tried, we recently came across one that we were surprised by the fact we hadn’t tried it. It is from a well known family of bourbons that we have experience with, but this particular offering is one that has never darkened our palates. Well, that all changes with this podcast. We will be trying the Basil Hayden’s Bourbon Whiskey.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - Stone Brewing 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA

    Anniversaries can truly be special events. A moment in time to stop and contemplate the way things were, the way things are, and the way things could be someday. Certainly there are many types of anniversaries with sad connotations, but we are not here today to reflect on those. We are here to talk about Stone Brewing and revel in the fact that they are celebrating 22 years of providing us with innovative and delicious tasting beers. From pilsners, to IPA’s, to imperial stouts, they have it all covered. They celebrate their anniversary every year by releasing a beer made specifically for the occasion and that is what we are trying for this podcast. The beer is named Anni-Matter Double IPA, and they are saying it is a haze-free, bold, juicy double IPA.  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 - Ruggero Di Bardo Susumaniello

    Hello wine lovers and welcome to the second installment of “Wines Andrew Has Never Heard Of.” Upon further review, this indeed IS a wine that Andrew has never had before. The wine we are trying this week is the Ruggero di Bardo Susumaniello. The wine is made from 100% Susumaniello grapes from the Puglia region of Italy (the heel of the boot). Without further adieu, if you are ready to see what we thought of this wine, just say the word...Susumaniello, that is.  What did we think?

    Give It A Shot - 2017 Espiral Vinho Verde

    You may have noticed that we did not put out any podcasts last week. At least we hope you noticed. That means that you are following us and that hopefully you are enjoying what we are doing. We took a one week hiatus so that we could cull together some great ideas for future shows and we came up with several! After much discussion, we settled on a winner. As for the other ideas, don’t worry, they will make an appearance in future weeks. The topic we decided on for this weeks shows was “Wines Andrew Has Not Heard Of.” The title doesn’t exactly roll off of the tongue but it is pretty straight forward. The wine featured on this show is the Espiral Vinho Verde. Literally translated as “Green Wine,” the title actually refers to a specific area in Portugal where several types of grape varietals are grown to make this wine.  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. 

    (Full Disclosure: We realized while editing the video that we actually have done this wine on a podcast before, but that was in 2009 and it is only available on audio so that doesn’t count.)

    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 - Stone Brewing Woot Stout 2018

    We are not sure what the weather is like where you are, but where we are, the temperature easily eclipses 100 degrees on a daily basis. When you add in the humidity from our monsoon season it makes for some unpleasant atmospheric conditions. It certainly is not what some of us would consider Imperial Stout beer drinking weather. Needless to say, when we decide to take on an Imperial Stout at this time of year you know we must have an idea that it is going to be special. That is definitely the case as this week we try the Stone Farking Wheaton Wootstout. It is a collaboration between Drew Curtis, Wil Wheaton, and Greg Koch (of Stone Brewing) and this is the 6th year they have released a version of this beer. We have tried previous versions, but every year they do something different to keep us on our toes.  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.
