Season 1, Episode
10 - This week, we’re drinking the saison
rumored to be the source of Wyeast Laboratories 3711 saison yeast,
a delicious sour from Allagash, stout from Freeport, Maine, and
finally, Matt’s first small batch brew in quite a long
This week, we’re joined once again by our in-house special guests
Sara and Yvonne, and it gets a little crazy this week. We start off
with some “discussion” on the movie The Godfather, and drink a tasty
brew from Brasserie Thiriez called “Extra“, a dry-hopped french farmhouse ale, rumored to
be the source of Wyeast’s 3711 French Saison ale yeast.
Brasserie Thiriez, Allagash Brewing
Company, and Maine Beer Company
After that, we dive into a couple of excellent beers via Mr.
Nagel, Allagash Brewing
Company‘s Coolship Cerise, and Maine Beer
Company‘s Mean Old Tom. Coolship Cerise is an
open-fermented sour ale aged in oak barrels with cherries, and it’s
nothing short of delicious. Greg gives us a some insight on how
Coolship is made, fresh off his recent trip to the east coast of
the United States. Mean Old Tom is a stout aged on vanilla beans.
Maine Beer Company is out of Freeport, Maine, and if this beer is
an indication of the deliciousness of their beer, then we’re
definitely looking forward to more from this brewery.
Feature: Homebrew – Matt’s
Small Batch IPA.
Matt‘s known for brewing small batches of brew
in the past, but since becoming a professional brewer, time for
homebrewing has been limited. But Matt’s back in the saddle, and he
decided to brew a very basic IPA to get back in the game. Photos
from the brew day are up on our Flickr page. Check ‘em out!
Feature: “Guess That
Jason’s taking a break from competing on this round of Guess That
Brew, and instead, is providing some interesting reviews to rack
our beer-soaked brains.
If you didn’t hear already, we’re officially on Stitcher.
See you next week! Drink some beer!
