Season 2 Episode 6: Brewery Profile - Keowee Brewing Company

The beer scouts have the scoop on yet another new local craft brewery in the works, and this time it’s Keowee Brewing Company of Seneca, SC, which is on track to open in Spring 2019! We are honored and excited to be able to offer a preview of four excellent beers shared with us by Keowee Brewing Company’s brewmaster. In addition to discussing the Upstate’s soon-to-be newest brewing operation, the beer scouts question whether the shaker pint glass should be cast out from taprooms, and whether Michael will be drawn to the dark side by Keowee Brewing Company’s phenomenal porter and imperial stout and betray his love of all things IPA? And for the record, Lake Keowee is not a literal lake of beer, although we look forward to Keowee Brewing Company using their brewing magic to turn the fresh water from the lake into more delicious beer! Featuring the following beer styles brewed by Keowee Brewing Company: Kölsch, single-hopped New England-style IPA, Porter, and Imperial Stout.

Season 2 Episode 5: Brewery Profile - Jocassee Valley Brewing Company

The beer scouts return to the Upstate to feature Jocassee Valley Brewing Company, one of the newest breweries in South Carolina, and for the moment, the only operating brewery in Oconee County! Jocassee Valley (also known as “JVBC” for short) just opened their taproom doors for business in May 2018, and offers an impressive selection of delicious craft beer paired with live music and tasty food trucks, all at a family-friendly venue in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. As a bonus, Eric also picked up some cans of an outstanding amber lager from Arches Brewing, a lager-centric microbrewery from the south side of Atlanta. Along with discussing the virtues of half-pints and craft-brewed kombucha, Justin also gives us a lesson on the chemistry behind prison hooch (which for the record was not acquired through personal experience). Featuring: JVBC’s Amongst the Beers Red IPA, JVBC’s Lydie Mountain After Dark Black IPA, and Arches Brewing’s Southside Lager.

Drinking local doesn’t get more real than that! Featuring: Golden Grove’s Long Black Ale, The Real Cheese West Coast IPA, Gov’t Cheese East Coast IPA, Anything Gose, and more!

Season 2 Episode 2: Guess That Beer! – Summer Edition

The beer scouts have never claimed to be certified Cicerones, but in this episode they attempt to prove their aficionado credentials by sampling a line up of mystery beers in a blind tasting and giving their best shot at guessing the surprise identity of four specially selected local brews. While trying to use all their sensory powers to identify the beers at hand, the beer scouts also consider the rise of the crowler, what many consider the latest and greatest way to bring beer home from your local taproom! Listen in and stop reading now if you want to keep the suspense before we reveal our mystery beers as we go! *SPOILER ALERT* Featuring: Sweetwater’s Twisted Fish Crystal Pilsner, Highland’s Oatmeal Porter, Coast’s 32/50 Kölsch, and Low Tide Brewing’s Tura’Lu Irish Red Ale.

Season 2 Episode 1: Cream Ales – Proudly Made in the USA!

The beer scouts are excited to kick off another season by featuring some local examples of one of the only classic beer styles to originate in the USA – cream ale! Fortunately you don’t have to look too far here in South Carolina to find some great renditions of this relatively obscure style, courtesy of Charleston’s Revelry Brewing Company and North Carolina’s Catawba Brewing Company. And since you can’t talk about cream ale without talking about the classic “Genny Cream” from Rochester, NY, Eric brought down some leftovers to share from his family’s July 4th festivities up in Pennsylvania. As a bonus, Michael graciously shared with us one of his recent wedding gifts: a can of Heady Topper Double IPA, one of Vermont’s highest rated brews! Featuring: Genesee Cream Ale, Revelry's Gullah Cream Ale, Catawba’s Farmer Ted’s Cream Ale, and The Alchemist’s Heady Topper Double IPA.

Episode 22: Upstate Double Feature

Before wrapping up our first season, your beer scouts had to showcase some offerings from the ever-expanding craft brewing scene in the Upstate! To that end, we are pleased to help introduce Simpsonville's recently established Rail Line Brewing as we sample their exceptional Saison rendition, along with the hearty German-influenced Quittin' Time from Greenville's Brewery 85, which recently celebrated their fourth anniversary! We also took a minor detour by way of Charleston's Frothy Beard Brewing Company, where the pizza is almost as famous as the beer. As a bonus, we grabbed a can of Highland's delicious pilsner sporting their new and improved(?) logo and label art. Featuring: Rail Line Brewing's Simpsonville Saison, Brewery 85's Quittin' Time Helles Bock, Frothy Beard's Tides Irish-Style Red Ale, and Highland Brewing Company's Pilsner.

Episode 21: Russian. Imperial. Stouts.

Of course your beer scouts would sample five of the most imperial of all imperial beer styles in one episode, as we feature some of the finest American-made Russian Imperial Stouts to be found from coast to coast. Fortunately, the beer scouts had the help of comrade Ricco Cloyd (AKA "Mr. Crafty Cat") to outlast the dark Russian winter and overcome some of the most infamous villains of the 20th century. Давай! Featuring: North Coast's Old Rasputin, Avery's The Czar (2014 Vintage), The Unknown Dirty Commie Heathen, Cigar City's Marshal Zhukov, and the Oskar Blues Ten Fidy (non-barrel aged). Intro/Outro Music Credits: The Russian Red Army Choir and The Irish Rovers (Bet you never thought you'd hear those two troupes cited in the same production, right?)
