The original co-host of the podcast, The Yankee, has returned from the wilds of Ohio and has brought some brews with him, a couple of which are guaranteed to challenge the taste buds of the Brit. It’s that time of year when those darn spiced pumpkin beers sneak out the dark corners of breweries, and we have a couple to taste.
But first as our lead in brew, we’re drinking Surly’s Coffee Bender, just to get out senses tuned up.
Then we get into a beer style that might not be anyone’s first choice, a shandy from Hoppin’ Frog. Couple that with a brew that snuck in (cos the Yankee thought it came from Ohio) from Clown Shoes, and we have the makings of a bumper edition and an evening of tasting and good old pub chat which is what we love!
The Brit also pulled out a bonus beer that had to make up for, and clear the palette of those spiced ales, from the folks at Innis & Gunn, an Oak aged beer, hopped bourbon cask ale.
