December 20, 2014 Show
It's that time of year and the holidays are in full swing as we kick off our holiday features with this years Christmas Spectacular show! We have a roundtable of guests this year with our wonderful friend Chef Gene Philbin from Peculiar Culinary joining us in studio fresh off his Food Network win, along with Backyard Billy from Backyard Ale House and good friend Jason and Ed as well! We also had a wonderful chat with All About Beer Magazine President Mr. Chris Rice! A jam packed show with good times and even better better!
This weeks beer lineup featured:
Anchor Brewing- Our Special Ale: Each year we all long for this release to see what is in store and this year does not dissapoint. Notes of red fruits and subtle hopping are balanced into a decadent maly bill but it is still as easy drinking as ever!
Deschutes Brewery- JubelAle: A winter warmed with a lovely caramel and toffee like malt bill with a bit of earthy spicy hops thrown in for perfect balance.
Odell Brewing- Isolation Ale: A wonderful winter warmer with a hop bite that is warming and drying at the same time. If you are a winter warmer fan, find this beer!
Ninkasi Brewing- Sleigh'R: A double Alt may sound strange but the wonderfully sweet malt bill makes this a great winter beer, not to mention an awesome label!
Heavy Seas- Yule Tide: A rum barrel aged Weizenbock, it is world class to say the least!
