Season 1, Episode
29 - This week on the show, we are again
joined by John Ryti and Tim “Showtime” Ryan, and this time, Ryti
brought along some homebrew.
We kick off the show this week with a fantastic brew from the folks
at Refuge Brewery in Temecula,
California. Blood Orange
Wit is a tangy and big-bodied, low ABV pale ale. This
beer isn’t just another fly-by-night wheat ale—this thing is
delicious! This is Refuge’s first offering in a can, and it’s
totally worth checking out.

Next up on the show are a few brews from Ryti. First up is, well, we don’t know. Neither
does Ryti. He found this keg of brew hiding in a cold-box and
forgot to label what it was.
The second beer up is a stout that Ryti made as part of a group
brew. This beer went into ~50 gallon port wine barrel that was
about 75 years old. Pretty cool, right?
Ryti’s final beer is a clone of Stone Brewing Co.’s Vertical Epic
Ale 09.09.09. Ryti made this brew a few years go. The cool
thing about the Vertical Epic series is that Stone provides the
recipes for each beer so homebrewers can whip up a batch
themselves. We tried Ryti’s version along side an actually bottle
of the beer, which at this point in on its way downhill, so drink
up if you still have any. Ryti’s version of the brew turned out
quite well. 09.09.09 was one of the best of the Vertical Epic
series in our opinions. If you never got a chance to try it, check
out the recipe and brew it up!
We end the show with the Aventinus
Eisbock from Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider &
Sohn. On a previous show, we mentioned that this style of beer
wasn’t very widely brewed and was somewhat difficult to attain.
Well, Jason found the mother load at a local Total Wine.
If you missed the announcement last week: We’ve started a Patreon
campaign! If you don’t know what Patreon is, it’s a crowdfunding
service similar to Kickstarter, except it’s meant to allow donors,
or “patrons” as they call them, the opportunity to give continued
support for artists through monetary donations. In our case, we are
accepting donations on a per-episode basis. You can contribute any
amount you wish, per episode, be it a quarter or ten bucks (holy
Take the time to check it out. We ultimately want to offer more
content to our fans, i.e. supplemental video content of our
personal brew days and homebrewing techniques, visiting breweries,
going to more festivals, etc., and we can only do that with your
help. If you feel you get any value from the show, please consider
throwing some duckets our way. We’re off to a great start, and
couldn’t be happier about the generosity of our fans and friends
thus far. THANK YOU!
