Pubcast 158 – Fall Beers and Fall Guys!

It is at this time of year that the annual Fall styles begin to appear. While all the brewers are at GABF, the pub crew plus guests get together and try three October styles, and horror or horrors, one pumpkin ale!
We try Two Brothers Atom Smasher, Church Street Itascafest, Urban Chestnut Oachkatzlschwoaf, and Almanac’s Dark Pumpkin Sour.

Pubcast 157 – A Meading of the Minds…Mead and Trappist Ale

We stretch our comfort zones in this episode, and jump into the world of mead! We taste a homebrew, and two commercial versions, B. Nektar and  Crafted Artisan Meadery – which do you think we prefer?

Plus we taste a bonus beer, Spencer, the first Trappist Ale to be brewed in the USA, and we don’t Monk-ey around!  Cheers!

Pubcast 155 – Big Guys and Big Beers

We record a bumper edition at John’s Tavern – it would have been around an hour but John provided an unplanned beer that we just HAD to taste.

USBrit and Mark Naski are joined by Chuck Fort and John Karwoski – 4 big guys and 4 big beers.

We review 51st Ward’s Dr. Dankenstein’s What…Ever Double IPA, Noon Whistle’s first barrel aged bottle release Bob Ross Did It, Bells Brewery Planet series Neptune Imperial Stout, and Revolution’s 1ZEnuff, another Double IPA.

Do they match up to the title Big Beer – listen in below and find out!!
