“Lazy Summer Sunday”
Unable to get schedules to meet up, we were forced into an improvisation of sorts to get this week’s BrewCast episode out. Luckily for you…our dear listeners, we figured out a solution…and although it left me in the depths of the Gnarly Gnome Tavern, deep underground, we put together a great show for you!
From The Beer Fridge
We started the broadcast from with our favorite segment where Mike threw it to The Gnarly Gnome tavern where I tasted a couple Pilsner Beers, in honor of summer time:
- Christian Moerlein – Push Reel Pilsner (Read My Impression Here)
- Rhinegiest – Puma Pilsner (Read My Impression Here)
Going back to the Cincy BrewCast studios we heard from Mike and Tina who continued the summer beer theme, tasting:
- Taft’s Ale House – Nellie’s Key Lime Caribbean Ale
- Fifty West – Penny’s Pils
- Braxton Brewing – Dead Blow Tropical Stout
During their tasting, Mike and Tina made a great point not to forget about some of our “older” breweries as we’re are faced with newer and more “exciting” breweries opening.
The show then meandered on to a new segment for the show: This Week In Beer, where we tackle some of the biggest events and beer releases in the city. It’s always hard to keep track of what’s out, and what’s coming out – so hopefully you can make sense out of the madness. There’s always some big things happening, this week being no exception to that. You did hear about Kings Island’s first beer festival which kicks off this weekend, right?
On to Asked and Answered – we ask you, “What’s the worst beer you have ever had?” Be sure to submit your response on social media with the hashtag #CBCqotW we will tackle the responses during next week’s show. For as much tasty beer as there is in this world…there’s a bit that isn’t so great, either.
Another new segment on the Show: Beer School – we hit on some “Beer 101”. What is the difference between ales and lagers? If you’ve ever wondered what the difference between them is, Tina tackled this topic beautifully. See, we aren’t only about drinking beer… We can teach you stuff, too! Top Fermented, Bottom Fermented… what’s lagering mean? Find out!
We are actually starting to figure this whole podcasting thing figured out…so stay tuned as we have some exciting shows coming up in the near future! Let us know your opinions! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our next live broadcast, where you can actually show up and take part in this experiment we like to call Cincy BrewCast!
