Ethan and Tom sample one of their old standby PNW breweries, Ninkasi. They also find some time to bitch about Dogfish Head and the Food Network.
With great pains and under much duress, our Heroes undertake a monumental task of self sacrifice, throwing their livers on three gluten free beers, so you don't have to.
The second episode of Geek Beer Returns is live, and this time we're bringing you 3 beers inspired by everyone's favorite Dark Lord and Master. Will the Alesmith's Horney Devil, Widmere's Kill Devil, or the Ommegang Duvel Rustica have what it takes to get us to pledge our allegiance to the Morning Star by stripping naked and baptizing ourselves in a pool of goat's blood? Fuck, that's a normal Tuesday for Ethan anyway, so these beers better step up their game.
And in Geek Beer news, while Hands Across America was an OK idea, Beers Across America seems like a better one, a new invention has turned ordinary bar glasses into an explosive adventure in your purse, and if later this year you're having trouble tracking down your favorite New Belgium beers, blame Canada.
In a valiant attempt to make it seem like we have more content than we actually do, every other week for the next several weeks will consist of a classic podcast from the bowels of Geek Beer history. We're starting off with Geek Beer's first ever podcast, recorded back in 2009.
Here it is! Our first podcast of our triumphant return, where we explore Oregon's Hopworks Urban Brewery, aka HUB. We take on the HUB Lager, the HUB IPA, and the HUB 7 Grain Stout. Does Oregon's only all organic brewery have what it takes to impress the Geeks? Also, make sure to stay tuned for Geek Beer News, where Tom gets a lesson in Geography, The Geeks find out they may just have what it takes to live forever, and Ethan has his heart broken a little by one of America's Founding Fathers.
