We were forced to take a short break, Jason got a new job and Brian moved across town and it was just too hard to get our schedules to sync up, but now we're back at it and we've got a really good episode.
This week Scott and I (Jason) get ghosted by Brian, but it's okay because we are joined by Dave from New Belgium Brewing. Scott has known Dave for over 20 years, and for a while they were both in the central Florida hardcore / metalcore band Dragbody. Dave takes us on a beerventure, where we get to try some new, some hard to find, and some just plain good New Belgium beers.
On this episode we got to drink (and learn a bit about) an assortment of New Belgium beers:
- Dayblazer Easygoing Ale
- Juicy Watermelon Lime Ale
- Citradelic Exotic Lime Ale
- Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Pale Ale
We also got to try a couple of specialty ales from New Belgium's "Lips of Faith Series":
- Tart Lychee Wood-Aged Sour Ale
- Clutch Wood-aged Imperial Sour Stout
All of the beers were delicious.
Later in the episode we find out about New Belgium teaming up with Colorado State University to develop the Old Aggie Superior Lager, which we're going to need some of as soon as it is available. We then take a swing at answer questions originally asked of sex advice columnist, Dan Savage. We talk about being old hardcore dudes,
Over all this episode was slightly different than normal because we mostly stayed on topic and provide you, the listener, with accurate, presumably information. It also ended up being one of our favorite episodes.
Be sure to check out Dave's new band @ madrinaband.com and drink lots of New Belgium.
