Episode 419 – Grave Jacket to Heaven
We’re finishing off this season’s Deep Wood series from Revolution by doing all the non-stouts – and in many ways we’ve saved the best for last. Though the barrels deservedly get top-billing, it’s hard to ignore how dialed-in the base beer recipe is in all of these – and somehow they get better every year. All these ‘wines inspire a midshow 3-day nap, but we also invent a can-based Chopped challenge for your friends, dream up the inverted mozzarella stick, share tips for beating the Maple Man, and do uncouth things with the Super Mario 3 Strategy Guide issue of Nintendo Power magazine.
