Tasting 70: Denver Beer Scene

EWe had this episode in the bank and decided it was time to drop it. We are joined again by Nick Abeyta as Tasting 70 goes to Denver and the great beer scene they have. We drank five beers from five different breweries in Denver, CO and enjoyed some great laughs. Due to the current pandemic we are facing as a human race, this may be the last Tasting we have for awhile, as we adhere to the demands of physical distancing. As always thanks for listening, and Till the Last Drop! Beer Line-up: Hoplite from Black Project Brewing Company, St. Bretta Citrus Wildbier from Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project, Manannan from Tvre Brewing Company, Hazelnut Mocha Forever Awake from Cerebral Brewing Company and Shadowman II form River North Brewing Company.

Tasting 69: Monkish Monday

ETasting 69 is a special one! We were excited to have our buddy Jason back on, and new guest Texas Chris, to drink some Monkish!

We are very excited to drop this on a Monday, in honor of Monkish Brewing Co. Thanks for listening and Till the Last Drop! Beer Line-up: Stackin' Chips, Cosmic Type Stuff, Rap Shrapnel, and Hearts Turn Brave (Four Hazies) all from Monkish Brewing Co.

Tasting 68: Turning Point

ETasting 68 certainly had its ups and downs, but that didn't take away from the great time we had with guests Nick and Andres. Turning Point Beer was a brewery that we loved visiting their GABF booth, so we were excited to showcase an episode on them. This little brewery from Bedford, TX was fun to dissect and even referenced one of the best shows of all-time. Thanks for listening and Till the Last Drop! Beer Line-up: African Dream Pop (Gose with Strawberry, Mango, and Ginger), Cognitive Dissonance (New England IPA with Vic Secrete, Centennial, and Amarillo), $Galaxy (Double IPA with Galaxy, El Dorado, Hallertau Blanc, and HBC 431 Hops), Burt Macklin (Triple IPA with Blood Orange), and Captain Delicious Pants (A Blend of Stouts Aged in Barrels for 14-17 Months with Peanut Butter and Vanilla Beans) from Turning Point Beer.

Tasting 67: Fremont Brewing

ETasting 67 will go down as one of our favorites yet. This highly regarded, yet vastly underappreciated brewery is located in Seattle, and is simply known as Fremont Brewing Company. We were joined by our buddy Nick Abeyta and a new guest and friend, Jonathan, to enjoy these delicious offerings. We drank some high ABV beers so the night quickly got out of hand, but we had a great time as usual. Thanks for listening and Till the Last Drop! Beer Line-up: Barrel Aged B-Bomb Coconut Edition (Imperial Winter Ale), Barrel Aged Dark Star Coffee Edition (Oatmeal Stout), Unicorn Tears collab between Perennial Artisan Ales (Imperial Stout Aged in Whiskey Barrels with Tart Michigan Cherries), Barrel Aged B-Bomb Coffee Cinnamon (Imperial Winter Ale), Barrel Aged Dark Star Chocolate Vanilla Maple Syrup (Oatmeal Stout) and Barrel Aged Brew 3000 (Barleywine), from Fremont Brewing Company. Spotlight: Funky Blender Preserves Raspberry + Peach by Casey Brewing and Blending. Break Music was 4AM by KaizanBlu Intro and Exit Music provided by bensound.com

Tasting 66: Narrow Gauge

ETasting 66 comes courtesy of our buddy, Aaron Young, who brought us some down some Narrow Gauge Brewing. This small batch brewery in Florissant, MO doesn't even distribute in their state. The only way to taste these gems is to visit Cugino's restaurant where they share an establishment. It was just the original three of us this time, reviewing, and we were happy with the change of pace from our recent episodes. Thanks for listening and Till the Last Drop! Beer Line-up: Helles Gamed (Munich Style Helles), Meersalz - Passionfruit & Raspberry (Gose Style Ale Brewed with Sea Salt and Coriander), Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A (Triple Dry Hopped Imperial India Pale Ale) and Emperor Fallen Flag (American India Pale Ale) all from Narrow Gauge Brewing Company.

Tasting 65: Barleywine is Life

ETasting 65 could have gone off the rails quick... and it did. Even with a crew of five, we decided to pop open eight bottles of barleywine and we lost. We welcomed back our buddy Aaron Young and guest from season 1, Irie_viewbrew (AKA Ben). They both brought some fire and great conversation to this episode. We hope we were able to bring some semblance of drunk entertainment at the very least! Thanks for listening and Till the Last Drop!

Tasting 62: Lactose Comatose

EWe are back with Tasting 62! Last time we had our buddies Jason and Diego on the show we tried beers with one of our favorite adjuncts.

Tasting 61: The Silver State

ETasting 61 belongs to The Silver State. Nevada is best known for Las Vegas, or better yet, Sin City. Well, we made a cardinal sin on this episode and tried to review beers well past their best by date. We contemplated calling this tasting the torture episode because we drank 12 cans of a box we were gifted. We didn't want to toss out the whole episode as we had a fun time recording it with our buddy Casey; but, we couldn't rank every beer knowing they weren't tasted as the breweries intended. Hopefully you find enjoyment in some of our pain. Thanks for listening and Till the Last Drop! Intro and Exit Music provided by bensound.com
