This week on the show, we’re drinking beers given to us by our loyal listeners (and readers…)! One of the best things about having a beer podcast is when awesome folks like yourselves are kind enough to send us beers to drink on the show.

The beers on the show this week were provided by listeners Kyle Wells and Aaron Pryor.

[S4/E8] Five Brewers Get Lei'd

Season 4, Episode 8 – Firkfest is coming up, and we’re celebrating by drinking some tropical brews!

Firkfest 2017 is nearly upon us, and we’re gearing up for this year’s tiki-tropical themed event by drinking a plethora of fruity, topical inspired brews. What is Firkfest, you ask? It’s our very own Greg Nagel‘s annual cask ale festival in Anaheim, California.

Tropical BeersTropical Beers

We must say that for the most part, the beers on the show this week are tropically delicious, if that’s your thing. John does admit during the show, however, that drinking this much fruity, tropical goodness can be a bit taxing over time. It’s best to pace yourself when going to the island of tropics and mix up the styles a bit. Luckily, at this year’s Firkfest, you’ll be able to do just that, since there will be over 30 different casks of tiki-brew available!

It should also be mentioned that we are joined this week by our honorary fifth brewer, Natalie DeNicholas, who is also the host of our newest (soon to be) endeavor, Pink Beer Corner! Details about PBC will be coming soon, so be on the lookout.

Be sure to pickup your tickets for Firkfest! There’s also a special discount code mentioned during the episode that may or may not get you $10 off your tickets, but you didn’t read that here…

[S4/E7] Prairie, Marz, Ironfire, Coronado, and Kern

Season 4, Episode 7 – This week on the show, Jason and John are flying solo with some shelf randos. 

Don’t wait in line for Pliny the Younger! Get your raffle tickets for the Beachwood BBQ 6th Annual Pliny Fights Cancer Charity Raffle before February 18th! All proceeds go to the Melanoma Research Foundation in memory of Tony Carbone.

There comes a time in every podcaster’s career where scheduling conflicts, natural disasters, car troubles, family issues, or even sickness get in the way of producing content. What’s a podcaster to do? Skip a week? Play a re-run? Or, how about power through and get the job done. We here at Four Brewers always choose the latter, no matter what.

Due to the scheduling conflicts that often arise between four beer-drinking dudes with lives of their own outside of their podcast, Greg and Matt couldn’t make it for what would normally be a three-episode recording session. Rather than skip a week, we’re keeping our promise to never miss an episode of Four Brewers. Jason and John decided to get together and have some light fun drinking whatever they could scrounge up at the local liquee (sic) store.

Session 50 Beers!Session 50 Beers!

The beers on this week’s episode range from light and hoppy to sour and barrel-aged. Johnpicked out some beers from Gerrards Market in Redlands, California, with a little help from the almighty Mo, Gerrards’ Beer Cave dweller and expert.

So, worry not, friends. Rest assured that there will always be a new episode of you’re favorite beer podcast ever week, as well as a new episode of Four Brewers, even if it means being a host or two light. 

We’ll be there for you [/Friends theme song].

[S4/E6] This Quad is On Point, Man!

Season 4, Episode 6 – This week, Mike Kirshner sends us not only his homebrew, but also some totally whale-worthy brew from Jester King Brewery. 

Don’t wait in line for Pliny the Younger! Get your raffle tickets for the Beachwood BBQ 6th Annual Pliny Fights Cancer Charity Raffle before February 18th! All proceeds go to the Melanoma Research Foundation in memory of Tony Carbone.

Jester King Brewery is a mainstay on the Four Brewers podcast. Anytime something new comes around from JK, you know we’re gonna jump on it and feature it on the show. This week, we got our grubby little hands on the latest white-whale to come out of the Texas beer scene by way of longtime 4B listener, Mike Kirshner. We’re also drinking some homebrew from Mike (he’s an awesome homebrewer, by the way…)!

Kicking things off is a super-sessionable mild from Jester King brew that clocks in at a mere 2.9% alcohol by volume named, Commercial Suicide. If there’s anything we love, it’s tasty brew that can be enjoyed all afternoon. Kollaborationsbier and Noble King follow up this delicious, slightly tart mild, making way for the beer we all came here for, Jester King’s gueuze-style wild ale, SPON Méthode GueuzeMatt also got his hands on a variation of SPON made with peach and apricot, and yes, it’s tasty af.

We wrap up the episode with four homebrews from Mr. Kirshner that we previously featured on an episode that (due to technical issues) didn’t make it to the podcast feed. We’ve featured Mike’s homebrew on the show before and are obviously always happy to feature killer homebrew from him and anyone else who wants to send their homebrew our way.

Thanks to Mike for providing the Jester King beers and the homebrew!
