Now that xmas gifts are opened and you're staring at that new brewing gear and gadgets to check out, it's time to brew some home brew for 2020! This episode we're joined again by Bob "my bud" Marske to explore the "State of Home Brew" in America, where we've been and where we're going as brewers of our own beers. Have you hit a lull? Has the excitement of a full boil lost its luster? Or are you entrenched in a brewing project nearly every weekend? No matter your brewing status, always try to remember that an active engagement with brewing is the best way to really understand and appreciate beer. The waiting is the hardest part (said Mr. Petty-RIP).
The cast also reviews (and tastes) some awesome holiday craft beer that you'll wanna put in your fridge for the "playoffs"! What's that? Ah - Playoffs? Don't talk about - playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game! ...well a spicy xmas beer sounds like a good game plan! Tasters in this show include Anchor Christmas Ale, Deschutes Jubelale Winter Ale, Metropolitan Arc Welder Dunkel Rye, North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, and we couldn't help but chew on a little more of Brent's home brew Whiskey Stout...and a silent night calmly follows.
