Eoghan is the writer for the blog Brussels Beer City and we were excited to have him join us for a conversation of all things Belgium.  Bryan joined Evan stateside and we talked with Eoghan and Chad, who were in Brussels, for a dive into the beers that excite their drinking culture.  We simultaneous sampled beers from Brasserie de la Senne, Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen, and Westvleteren.  Eoghan talked about the brewer mentality of Belgian brewers and why the taproom model isn't like it is in the states.  What excites Belgians about American beers?  What's the drinker's culture in Brussels?  What do brewers think of American Lambic style beers (hint: they laugh)?  Tune in to this honest and thoughtful discussion with our fiends in Brussels, it was a definitely a fun time!!

The summer has been keeping us all busy but we are back with an amazing new episode with our friends Michael and Jenna.  Jenna hosts her own YouTube channel (ieatallthechips) to showcase her enthusiasm for all things chips.  We paired some amazing beers, such as 3 Floyds Brewing's 'Rrari Crochet, Perennial Artisan Ales' Blue Ridge, and Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen's Oude Geuze Golden Blend with some complimentary spuds to highlight each offering.  It was an entertaining time sipping great beers, crunching great chips and not to mention a drop in from Bryan, Trey barking, and a broken glass.  We also had the privilege of sampling a bottle of Mook Meadery's "The Big Montana", a strawberry vanilla milkshake style mead which was a big hit with the crowd...thanks to DJ!!  Tune in to hear from Jenna tell us about her YouTube channel, how she became such a chip enthusiast and if she thinks cheese puffs are chips or not!  This was a fun one for sure, cheers from P+P!!!

We went big for our 50th episode as we blind tasted, guessed, and ranked some of the biggest, barrel-aged, non-adjunct stouts to come out of St. Louis.  A total of 8 of us tested 6 monster beers from Perennial Artisan Ales, Side Project Brewing, and Main & Mill Brewing to see which ones stood out from an already crowded field of contenders.  Tasted were Side Project's Beer:Barrel:Time Batch 1 & 2, Perennial's Maman '17, '18, and the double barrel version from The Wine and Cheese Place in addition to Main & Mill's Carpathian.  Lots of fun and a little disagreement to determine who was best at determining which beer was which and we also get to see how our total rankings ending up for the 6 beers between all of us. Thanks as always to Pour Bros Craft TapRoom in Peoria Heights for hosting! Cheers from P+P!!

Lots of fun stuff here with Evan, Ryan, and Kyle talking first about the now defunct Valiant Brewing Co. and their Russian mega stout, Marshmallow Quantarium.  Seemed like a successful brewery but closed its doors and left a big wake behind it with this white whale which delivered a big vanilla bomb of a stout with a fullness and sweetness like many of the best out there.  So why do some good breweries fail?  We also discuss the reasons collaboration can build a brewery.  Shout outs to New Glarus Brewing and keeping it nostalgic when we travel to Wisconsin, the soon to open Hop Station in Mishawaka, IN, and Mook Meadery, whom we still are looking for samples from.  Ryan also touches on his brief trip up to this years Dark Lord Day at Three Floyds Brewery in Munster, IN.  Cheers from P+P!!

The Show

When hobbies become obsessions, we often like to share what we know and love about them with others. Although we have dedicated the most time learning the ins/outs of beer, brewing, and breweries, we have also extended our knowledge on those things that complement it: bourbon, wine, coffee, food, and cooking. Listen in to Evan, Ryan, Mark, and Dan, and with periodic guests, dissect those crafts that we love to imbibe.
