Four Brewers | Craft Beer and Homebrew Podcast

Season 4, Episode 26 – This week on this show, Genesee brews and RateBeer talk.

Genesee Brewing is probably a brewery you’ve seen many times on shelves, but simply overlooked. It happens. It’s the same old story: the beer is always there, but you’re always hunting for the newest whalez and porch bombs. This week on the show, we’re drinking beers inspired by Matt and Jason’s show on the Four Brewers YouTube channel, Cheap Beer Corner.

It should also be mentioned that we spend a majority of the show this week talking about the RateBeeer.com buyout. It’s a sensitive topic for sure, and quite unique among the normal brewery acquisition news releases we are all accustomed to reading.

Season 4, Episode 25 – This week, we’re geeking out on homebrewing and drinking asparagus IPA…NO JOKE.

It’s been a while since we’ve done a legitimately hardcore homebrew episode on the podcast and this week, we’re going back to our roots with the help of Daniel Fernandez from Beancurdturtle Brewing, LLC.

You may have gathered from the title of this episode that we’re drinking actual IPA made with asparagus–yes, asparagus. Along with Daniel’s asparagus beer, we’re drinking four other really tasty brews that he crafted as a homebrewer, as well as beers that he designed for other craft breweries around the world. We also talk about Daniel’s history in craft beer and chat about beer styles and professional brewers that he has worked with over the years.

Season 4, Episode 24 – This week, we’re exploring the newest Sierra Nevada Collaboration twelve pack.

It’s that special time of year when Sierra Nevada Brewing Company calls forth the best brewers in the land to brew a mixed twelve pack of collaboration beers.

This week, we’re drinking those beers.

Beer Camp Across The World Twelve PackBeer Camp Across The World Twelve Pack

If you’ve been listening to Four Brewers for a while, you’ll know that we have a love/hate relationship when it comes to Sierra Nevada beers. This doesn’t mean we think they brew bad beer, but they tend miss the mark more than a brewery of their stature should. The Beer Camp mixed packs have always been a sore spot with us, even though our own Greg Nagel attended Beer Camp in 2013! We love Sierra Nevada! What we’re doing is simply giving valid criticism because we know Sierra Nevada can innovate and evolve without compromising flavor and quality.

This year’s Beer Camp Across The World mixed twelve-pack hit shelves in the Southern California market last week. Keeping with tradition, we picked it up, hoping this year’s beers wouldn’t be a complete dumpster fire (ok, hyperbole–past beers in the mixed pack weren’t really that bad, but we were usually really disappointed), and guess what? This year’s variety pack is pretty damn good! How rad is that?!

We here at Four Brewers are happy to announce that we highly recommend the 2017 Beer Camp Across The World variety/mixed/collaboration twelve pack. Want to know which beers stood out to us the most? Listen to this week’s episode!

Season 4, Episode 23 – This week, Jason’s cup runeth over…

Sometimes, you just need to clear out the cellar and make room for more whalez. This week, Jason does just that.

Jason's Cleaning Out the ClosetJason’s Cleaning Out the Closet

One of the best things about having a beer cellar is when you need to clear it out to make room for more new and exciting craft beers. More often than not, the beers that are selected for clearing are usually ready for drinking, but sometimes, they’re past their prime, or just plain awful. Again, it’s fun, right?! Right!
