It’s the end of October, which means it’s time to taste some Bourbon County Stout. Our friends at Goose Island were good enough to invite the Barrel to Bottle crew to their Barrel House and taste through the 2022 line-up.
The constant turnover in beer and cider, along with many breweries abandoning the concept of flagships, has made it really tough to keep track of the latest releases in this category. But we're here to help with six beers and two ciders that should be sticking around for a while.
Usually, the beer styles near and dear to Roger’s heart get no love. That’s not the case this week, as we delve into Vienna Lagers. If you’re a fan of Oktoberfest beers, and want them year-round, you’ll love Vienna Lagers.
It’s that time again…time for the Barrel to Bottle crew and producer Jim to take a break from podcasting. Luckily, we’ve been compiling clips from episodes that ran too long, segments that felt out-of-place and montages galore!
Check out our two part interview with craft beer legend Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Brewery. While sampling beers and canned cocktails, Sam discusses the history of the brewery and how they eschewed the trends of craft beer.
Are you ready for Summer? It's still spring, but summer beers are already on our shelves and the weather is getting warmer and warmer (for the most part). Summer beers should be crushable, so Roger assembled a line-up of beers that will you get you through the hot summer days without filling you up.
We use the phrase “Flavor Blasted” a lot, usually in jest. But more and more, we are seeing products that are catering to fans of candy and desserts. Basically, almost everything is flavor blasted these days from beer to seltzers to ciders and meads. So many beers, ciders and meads have fruit in them; to the point where a “plain” beverage is the oddity.
