4 Beers 4 America

Three cheers for four beers and a Happy Fourth of July to all! Keeping with the tradition of expressing our unwavering patriotism we bring you another super special edition episode sponsored by our friends at Books and Brews!

We go back-to-back with two very different IPA's from Scarlet Lane Brewing. First their Vivian Red IPA and then a less traditional Bourbon Barrel Aged Braggot style IPA, Eirik Bloodaxe.

To finish up we bring in two offerings from Upland Brewing. We start a little safe with their Dragonfly IPA and then knock it up a notch with Darken, a sour ale.

We made it back to the studio!

Don't be worried, we're observing social distancing, wearing masks, not letting Adam touch us or anything we love.

We do have for you a brand new episode! We talk about pilsners. Not super sexy, but a tremendously refreshing beverage when done right. We have an offering from Devil's Trumpet and Toppling Goliath.

We're glad to be back in the swing of things. Make sure you follow along with us. We've got some big stuff happening! We're going to formally launch a new craft beer network and we have an episode to release here soon hanging with Ant from the Mo Head Y'all show!

You know how Disney locks away movies in a vault and then re-releases them? Well, this is kinda like that, except we forgot to release the episode initially. So we’d like to introduce you again for the first to time this - our episode from the vault!

We kick things off with a beer you can no longer get from Books and Brews, Jabbersmokey! It is an imperial smoked stout aged in a scotch whiskey barrel. Just because you can’t get this one anymore, doesn’t mean that you can’t have Books and Brews beer delivered to your door!

We also chat about Sweet Baby Jesus! From DuClaw Brewing Company. Let’s be honest - if you haven’t tried this one yet, do you even craft beer, bro?

Also, shout-out to Barrel Chat. Member when they had a podcast? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

We consume three IPA's - so we titled the episode three IPA descriptors. Really can't tell you if they're appropriate or not; after the first few minutes of Adam talking about Star Wars my brain just went numb.

First out of the gates is Triton's The Hempire Strykes Back. It's an approachable Hemp IPA that lead to so much Star Wars discussion.

Our second Indy beer is from a brewery we haven't sampled on the show before, Mind Over Mash. We consume their Hop Lord... and then discuss Star Wars. Because, you know, Adam's mental acrobatics.

Lastly we review Heretic Brewing Company's You Can't Handle the Juice! At some point in time the taste of eyeballs was mentioned. Don't let that dissuade you however, it was actually pretty well reviewed.

As part of our pledge to get out more in the New Year - mostly to celebrate Adam's parole; we stopped in to Four Day Ray for a few pints. We discussed their award winning After Burner smoked lager and their seasonal Snow Shed Winter Ale.

Because we're an enlightened bunch, we then went on to discuss taxes and presidential home states.

Countdown to descending balls with your friends at thespeakpodcast!

As is tradition, we're switched from malted barley beverages to distilled spirits! Sadly, we only sampled from 3 of the 5 bottles we acquired for the episode, because responsibility.

Tune in to see how we felt about Hard Truth's White Rum and Gin and Tanner's Creek Bourbon Whiskey! We drink them neat and then mixed for added celebratory fun.

Happy New Year, Dear Readers!
