    Episode 28: CraftBeer News - Order Beer & Get 20 mins of Puppy Playtime

    What we Drank
    33 Acres Brewing Wolf Landbier

    Wolf Landbier

    4.8% ABV

    Rustic, Crisp, Dope

    Ale

    Landbier means “country beer”, a term Franconian breweries use for a lager that is unique to its location. While no two landbiers are the same, ours uses the 33 Brewing Experiment lager yeast, is conditioned in Foeder 1 and dryhopped with Slovenian Wolf.

    Bandit Brewery Releases Doralice IPA

    Doralice (6.5% abv) is described as follows:

    Juicy and tropical, this hazy IPA hits you with an intense dank aroma and layers of citrus, mango and orange peel. The double dry-hop with Enigma and Citra results in tropical flavours with a slightly bitter finish that is balanced by the subtle sweetness.

    Episode 24: Dichotomy, Origins & This is Hefeweizen

    Episode 24: Dichotomy, Origins & This is Hefeweizen

    In this episode we drink Dichotomy from Category 12, This is Hefeweizen from Moon Under Water & Origins from Crooked Stave



    Category 12 - Dichotomy
    2019 Barrelholder Release

    5.4% ABV

    Harnessing the best of disparate worlds, this meticulously blended beer creates a haven of flavour between an old world, foeder aged Belgian-style Single, and a bright tartness that brings it to life.

    Foeder-Aged for 5 months, we blended our inaugural foeder release with a barrel aged sour to produce a delicate dance of nuanced flavour: the genesis of our foeder ageing program has begun!



    Moon Under Water - This Is Hefeweizen 

    Notes of bubblegum, banana, and clove. A multiple award winner at the BC and Canadian Brewing Awards





      



    Crooked Stave - Origins
    Burgundy Sour Ale Aged in Oak Barrels

    Origins is our homage to the history of barrel aging and those who have influenced us along the way. Traditionally regarded as the most complex of beers, Flemish Reds and Oud Bruins from the Flanders region of Belgium were known for their tart and vinous characteristics; these attributes eventually gave rise to their designation as the “Burgundies of Belgium.” Before we carefully select each blend from our barrel cellar, our burgundy sour gracefully ages in large oak foeders, and finally, smaller wine casks. Origins’ dominant characteristics come from the use of aromatic malts to create dark vinous notes with an acidic tart cherry finish, derived from our mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria.

    Episode 00: Introducing A Pint With Friends

    Episode 00: Introducing A Pint With Friends

    Hello my name is Scott Smith and welcome to A Pint With Friends. In this podcast I share conversations I’ve had with craft beer nerds, musicians, artists, professionals, business owners & friends and other like-minded individuals that will share craft beer stories and experiences from their own craft.

    In my conversation with Dan Colyer Brewmaster & co-owner of Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks, he tells me how they embrace their deep roots in geekdom which is the foundation of their amazing beer.

    While a conversation with Steel & Oak’s Co-Owner Jordan Foss showed his passion for making great beer is only equaled by his commitment to his local community.

    The goal of this podcast is not only my journey into learning more about the craft beer scene here in Vancouver Canada, but also connect with people, meet new friends and share positive stories meant to inspire and motivate you to follow your passions.

    One time I also hosted a Beer tasting with my nieces, a Root Beer tasting.  It was only then that I realized that sugar might be the most powerful drug on the planet.

    Come along with me on this podcast and hopefully try out new things and have a few laughs and inspire you to Share A Pint With Friends.
