Episode 22: Peak Brewing

This week Katie and Cathy tackle some IPAs and Sours, definitely not in their beer wheelhouse but they couldn't have picked a more quality brewery. Hum's Liquor provided Peak's Organic Line of Certified Organic beer including Peak IPA, Crush IPA with Blood Orange, the Winter IPA in the NE style, and Sweet Tarts New York Cherry Sour Ale. The women also discuss their out of state travels, Katie at Port City Brewing out of Virginia and Cathy got to retry New Belgium's Mary Jane Ale in the perfect ski setting in CO.

       
This week Katie and Cathy enjoy three beers from Cold Spring, MN Third Street Brewhouse. This lineup of Minnesota Gold Lager, Lost Trout Brown Ale, and Sugar Shack Maple Stout (along with others) was gifted to WDB by Hum's Liquor in Uptown Minneapolis, MN, thanks! Katie and Cathy kept local with Waconia Brewing's Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter and with a trip to BentBrewstillery in Roseville with the Bitches Brew Crew MN.

       
Katie & Cathy sat down with Sarah (formerly) of Bent Paddle Brewing out of Duluth, MN. While we drank the amazing brews (Pils, ESB, Kanu, and Cold Press) we were able to talk about the brewery itself and women in the industry. This is our longest episode to date clocking in at 1hour 12 min 28sec but it is well worth it to hear about Sarah’s experience in beer, and, of course, making dorky references.

       
The Ladies of Women Drinking Beer drink their favorite beers!

       
Join Katie and Cathy as they try the brews of Minneapolis’ own Indeed Brewing. They sample B-Side Pils, Daytripper Pale Ale, Let it Roll IPA, and Stir Crazy Stout.

This brewery took one man’s “bad habit” and turned it into a very good brewery. Bad Habit Brewery is out of St. Joseph, MN just outside of St.Cloudd. We tried the Hang Up Blonde, the churn it Up cream Ale, the Good Guy American Pale Ale, and the Dark Addiction Stout. It’s definitely worth the trip to Central, MN as this is the first of our episodes you can’t find in stores, yet!
