Don and Jim review a handful of holiday brews, one of Don’s favorite whiskey’s for the holidays and talk about the best gear to get for beer geeks and whiskey aficionados this holiday season. All that and more on this special holiday edition of the Beer and Whiskey Brothers Podcast!
“Brew Masters” starring Sam Calagione is hitting the airwaves and beer nerds around America are totally pumped. Heck, we are too. But the show is a little bittersweet for us, as we were actually up for that show. In this podcast we share the ups and downs of our TV adventure. We also review a couple of a nice brews and a whiskey that bears the name of one of America’s most-beloved tax evader. All that and more on this episode of The Invisible TV Show!
We share our experiences and thoughts about the 2010 Great American Beer Festival, including which beers were our favorites and which disappointed. We also talk about some of the cool brewers and fellow bloggers we met while in Denver. All that and more on this special edition of the Invisible TV Show!
We get our “bitch” on and sample Dogfish Head’s Bitches Brew, Flying Dog Raging Bitch and Bitch Creek’s ESB. We also talk about the things that bug us about the world of craft beer and small batch whiskey. Some of our blog readers get into the act as well, sharing what bugs them about being a fan of finely crafted beverages. You’ll also hear Don’s rant about jazz, which is classic, for sure.
In this episode we turn our attention to Sam Adams and their place in the craft beer universe. Is Sam Adams really a craft brewery, or have they grown into something else? We try to answer that question and sample three beers from their Imperial Series – a Belgian Wit, a Double Bock and an Imperial Stout. All that and more on this episode of the Invisible TV Show!
On this episode we take the show on the road! We hit the Brewforia Beer Market in Boise, Idaho where we talk about craft beer on the frontier, how our favorite beverages are starting to make in roads in some pretty remote locations. We are joined by Brewforia’s own Rick Boyd and our pal Chad (@BeerPoet on Twitter) as we drink New Glarus Enigma, Pliny the Elder and Schlafly Reserve 2006. We also sample Maker’s Mark 46 and a home brewed Belgian Quad sent to us by a loyal reader. We even discover that Don just might be Idaho’s version of a metrosexual. All that and lots more on this episode of the Invisible TV Show!
On this episode we talk about a great summer tradition – drinking away from home! Don shares his impressions of a couple of Idaho brewers; Wallace Brewing and Laughing Dog, as well as reviewing Four Roses small batch bourbon. Jim talks about the beer scene in Wisconsin and reviews a couple of goodies from New Glarus and Central Waters. Also, The Brothers are joined for Fun Facts by their sister Wendi, who talks about how she tortured Don as a child. All this and more on this action-packed edition of The Invisible TV Show!
On this episode we go negative and discuss beers and whiskeys that other people love, but we hate. Don trashes New Belgium and Maker’s Mark, and I dis two well regarded brews; Duchesse de Bourgogne and Old Rasputin XII. We also weigh in on Brew Dog’s latest plea for attention. All of that and more on this decidedly negative episode of The Invisible TV Show.
