June 28, 2014 Show

This week we were joined in studio by Chris and Mark from Breaker Brewing Company to sample some of their new and fantastic beers!  We also finished the show off with another fantastic beer from Odell Brewing Company, this time sampling their amazing Foot Print!

Breaker Brewing Company:

Mine Fire Blackberry Jalapeno Ale: A wonderfully balanced and subtly spicy Jalapeno ale with a sweet dose of blackberries in the mix, surprisingly refreshing given the qualities you are expecting from the name.

Sour Tomato Ale: A unique twist on an old and beloved style.  Using a sour mash this beer has the tart qualities loved in the sour beer style, but with a sweeter taste from the tomatoes, if you are a fan of sour beers a definite must try!

Quiet Canary Coconut Saison: Another unique taste on a very classic style.  The coconut addition to an already fantastic saison gives it a creamier mouthfeel with a lingering sweetness that is amazing, if you are a fan of coconuts than you have found a new beer to try!

Black Diamond Dark IPA: Call it a Black IPA or Cascadian Dark Ale, or just call it a Dark IPA, whatever you want this is a delicious version of the style.  The Black IPA style is off-putting to some until you find the right one and this is a definite one to try if you are new to the style, great balance with an abundant hop profile.

This weeks speical 5th beer:

Odell Brewing Company- Foot Print:  To celebrate the Odell IPA victory in the blind IPA tasting we sampled another delicious beer from this world class brewery.  This American Strong Ale comes in at 9.5% ABV and is packed full of flavor with absolutely no alcohol heat.  This beer is released in celebration of all the states in which Odell is currently distributed, the breakdown goes as such:
