Episode 4: Cold Beers Bound
In the first show where Shawn and I have been able to record in-person with each other, we take a chance on Michelob Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale, as well as Rogue Brewery’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar. We are also joined by our friend Nick, to give a third point of view on today’s beers and topics of discussion.
Our tasting tip of the week is a discussion on the proper beer storage temperature and the style tip is regarding macro-breweries playing in the micro-brewery world.
