This week, the Alewives sit down with their friend Bethany to learn what makes nitro beers different from regular ones. We taste a nitro Breckenridge Vanilla Porter and a regular one and talk about the difference, and attempt a few bad jokes, as usual.
We close out our IPA series discussing the styles of IPAs and how they differ. We also talk about Karma's upcoming #beercation and beer tourism, and then we try a Ghost in the Machine from Parish Brewing Co.
This week, we take a break from our IPA series to talk to Sydney Porter, head brewer at Southern Yankee Beer Company about all things ale vs lager.
In this episode, Karma and Fury talk about the things that make an IPA, well, an IPA. We'll taste Pile of Face from Against the Grain and talk about IBUs, esters, and phenols and the flavors they lend to your beer.
In our first episode, we talk about the real history of the IPA. We'll also run through our first tasting and get to know a little more about our introduction into the world of beer.
