Pubcast 196 – Bittermann and Fat Tire Friends

This show was recorded in a mammoth tasting session with Illinois beer historian John Bittermann, who stopped by the Brit and Yankee Pub to join Mark and Phil for a little variety.  This follows on from last weeks Beer Camp collaborations and this week visits New Belgium Brewing for their ‘Collabeeration’ pack called Fat Tire and Friends.
This time it celebrates the 25th anniversary of New Belgium, and they use only one brewery to produce a variation on their flagship Fat Tire Amber Ale recipe.

The brews we try are:

Allagash Fat Funk Ale
Avery Fat Wild Ale
Hopworks Fat Sour Apple Ale
Firestone Walker Fat Hoppy Ale
Rhinegeist Fat Pale Ale

Do we prefer this variety pack to last week, and which are the lads favorites?

Pubcast 195 – Bittermann and Beer Camp

This week we have a bumper edition, and we welcome John Bittermann to the Brit and Yankee studios to help us test the new Beer Camp variety pack from Sierra Nevada.  This 12-pack contains 2 each of 6 collaboration brews from 6 geographical areas of America, and features 31 breweries!
We try the beers in no particular order other than light to dark:

  1. South East Collaborators, Sweet Sunny South Table Beer
  2. NorCal Collaborators, West Latitude Session Rye with Hibiscus
  3. NE and MidAtlantic Collaborators, Pat-Rye-Ot Revolutionary Pale Ale
  4. PNW and Rockies Collaborators, Moxee-Moron Imperial Session IPA
  5. Midwest Collaborators, Family Value Imperial Brown Ale with Cocoa
  6. Southwest Collaborators, Stout of the Union Robust Stout

Listen in and see why we think these brews are good…if you are fond of hops, and see which 2 each of the lads puts as their favorites.
