Independence Brewery

In this episode we sit down with Brannon Radicke, head brewer at Independence Brewing.

 

He shares with us Red Bud Cucumber Berliner Weisse, Power and Light Pale Ale, and their brand new Native Texan Pilsner. We talk about Independence's latest growth, future projects, homebrewing, and the difficulties of making lagers.

 

 

And then we shotgun cans fresh off the line. But we didn't record that.

In this special episode we make a trip to Whitestone Brewery in beautifully historic Cedar Park.

We meet with owner Ryan and salesman extraordinaire Kevin and talk about homebrewing, the difficulties in trying to get people to drink unfamilar beer, and weed beers while nerding out over beer and drinking a selection from Whitestone including Brueggerhoff Bohemian Pilsner, Azakuanot Hazy IPA, and Ubergang German Pale Ale. 

And we're just getting started.

Also Cutter's mom was there. We're not sure but we may have insulted him more because of it.

In this episode we talk to Dan and Gaby from the Texas Yeast Lab.

 

We drink Weihenstephaner's Original Premium Lager and newly rebranded Modelo Negra. We discuss everything yeast from mutations, different lager strains, and the migration of European yeasts.  

We also get to talk about beginnings, endings, hometowns, and how some people got together to start collecting and propigating yeast strains to help make great Texas beers. And probably some not so great Oklahoma beers. 

*Shudder* Oklahoma

 

And then Cutter tries to slip Kansas into more conversations.

In this episode we tried our first selections from Craft Beer Club.

We sampled Nut Crusher a peanut butter porter and Elctrifly IPA from Wild Ride Brew and Roly Poly Pils and Special Ale, an amber, from River Horse Brewing. 
And because we needed help drinking we invited Amy of Amy Rain music to join us and talk about pond water, candy shops, and bottles versus cans while forgetting to talk about music.


So find out what Clint thinks of this IPA, what flavors Cutter picks up after reading the bottle, and much more when we open our first box from Craftbeerclub.com.
