Can you get any more click-bait than that?  Well maybe if you are sitting down to drink three amazing brews like we did on this episode.  We started out with Founders Brewing KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) then moved onto the hype beer CBS or Canadian Breakfast Stout.   Lastly we crossed the pond for a brew from Thornbridge Riverside Brewing in England in their Days of Creation.  Two highly acclaimed Imperial Stouts and a very well made English sour ale felt right for a name like Better than Sex.

When I was in Arizona I met up with the Hoppy Craftsmen Podcast and traded beer and recorded a series of future collaboration episodes. This episode back in Vancouver we shared 6 Arizona beers from Arizona Wilderness Brewing, Wren House Brewing, Tombstone Brewing and Pueblo Vida Brewing. These breweries make amazing beer and it is well worth heading to Arizona to find out for yourself.

Recently I sat down with Oliver of Boundary Brewing in Kelowna to talk about the brewery but also to hit on some hard hitting commentary. The brewery was attacked online by right wing Fascist Nazis mostly from the United States who had never even heard of the brewery.  Their attack backfired though as the brewery only became stronger from this attack.  Tune in to find out more.

Note to would be Podcasters
It may seem like a cool idea to podcast with two different bloggers in the same room (With different computers) but there are to many technical issues.  One of which is hearing yourself speak through your headphones (My god that was distracting).  Having to set only one microphone to record and ensuring that your computer doesn’t overrule your muted microphone.  I had to fight to remove a second echo version of my voice on the podcast and it was not simple and was time consuming.
