Episode 502 – Barrels Out West
In the week that we’re heading out west for a certain fest, we gather up four barrel-aged beers from West Coast breweries that are pretty well-known for their wood-aged offerings. Expectations are flipped on their head and a ringer is challenged as we pop a few actual corks for this one. Also, Craig wants in on the limited-edition mattresses; we open our minds to the possibilities that breweries can grow over the course of nine years; and we share the tales of the juggling Belgian Gueuze Mimes.
Floodland Brewing – Calling Out to Psychic Death (Dry-hopped blend of barrel-aged saisons w/ honey)
deGarde Brewing – The Broken Truck (Wild ale aged in oak, blended from four years)
Russian River Brewing Company – Small Batch: Intinction (Sauvignon Blanc-aged wild pilsner w/ Sauvignon Blanc grape juice and dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin)
Cellarmaker Brewing Company – Bourbon Blammo! (Blend of bourbon barrel-aged stouts and barleywine w/ toasted coconut)
