I am Scott Smith. This is basically just me talking about craft beer and hopefully other funny stuff, at times I’ll be interviewing 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….meaning love of what they do, not crafting projects…not that I won’t talk to that kind of crafters too.

    VIB Pod Pack is Back

    VIB Pod Pack is Back

    Vancouver Island Brewing has announced the release of a new collaborative sampler pack to raise funds for the preservation of wild B.C. salmon stocks, a vital food source for the Southern Resident Killer Whales that live in the Salish Sea.
    Pod Pack 2021 – which follows a similar release in 2019 – features four beers created in collaboration with other island breweries, each of them named after one of the whales in the local pods studied by marine biologists.
    The beers and participating breweries include:
    Mike Rosé Pale Ale (5.2% abv) – Whistle Buoy Brewing, Victoria
    Solstice Plum & Rosemary Saison (4.2% abv) – Ace Brewing, Courtenay
    Tahlequah Pacific Gose (4.8% abv) – Mayne Island Brewing, Mayne Island
    Wave Walker Helles Bock (6.8% abv) – Ucluelet Brewing, Ucluelet

    Details of the 2021 Pod Pack compiled by Joe Wiebe - https://bcaletrail.ca/vancouver-island-brewing-pod-pack/
    Mike Rosé Pale Ale (5.2% ABV)
    BREWED WITH WHISTLE BUOY BREWING – VICTORIA, BC
    The namesake of scientist Dr. Michael Bigg, who was known as “the father of killer whale research,” Mike (J-26) is a 30-year old male member of the J-Pod who has two living siblings, Alki (J-36) and Echo (J-42), and one younger sibling who passed away before the age of four, Scarlet (J-50).
    Tahlequah Pacific Gose (4.8% ABV)
    BREWED WITH MAYNE ISLAND BREWING – MAYNE ISLAND, BC
    Tahlequah (J-35) became known worldwide in 2018 when she carried her deceased calf (Ti-Tahlequah) for 17 days while researchers monitored her activity. Then, in September 2020, she made headlines again for successfully giving birth to a healthy calf, Phoenix (J-57). She is 24 years old.
    Wave Walker Helles Bock (6.8% ABV)
    BREWED WITH UCLUELET BREWING – UCLUELET, BC
    Wave Walker (L-88) got his name because when he was first spotted riding the wave from his mother’s slipstream. The 28-year-old orca is now the only living member of the L2 family group.
    Solstice Plum & Rosemary Saison (4.2% ABV)
    BREWED WITH ACE BREWING – COURTENAY, BC
    Solstice (L-89) is a 28-year old male who can most likely be found travelling with his mother since the passing of Granny (J-2), one of the best-known orcas in the world who was believed to have lived for more than 100 years. Solstice is the offspring of Spirit (L-22).

    SNOOTCHIE BREWTCHES! We tried Smodcast ‘Have a Week’ & The Jay & Silent Bob ‘Beers! Beers! Beers!

    SNOOTCHIE BREWTCHES! We tried Smodcast ‘Have a Week’ & The Jay & Silent Bob ‘Beers! Beers! Beers!

    In this episode we try Smodcast ‘Have a Week’ Juicy Pale Ale and the Jay & Silent Bob ‘Beers! Beers! Beers! Both beers made in Vancouver by Main Street Brewing. 
    Named after the eponymous weekly podcast that features Kevin and his long-time producing partner Scott Mosier aka @samosier — who met right here in Vancouver while both were attending film school back in the day — the ‘Have a Week’ Juicy Pale Ale has a balanced profile that complements the papaya and citrus notes of the highlighted Mosaic hops and punches in at 5.5% ABV / 30 IBUs. 
    The Jay & Silent Bob ‘Beers! Beers! Beers!’ Lager celebrates the dynamic cinematic duo (and Silent Bob’s longtime — ahem — Mewes) in a perfectly crisp, clean and easy drinking 4.5% ABV lager for all occasions. Or, y’know, hanging out in front of the neighbourhood Quick Stop. It’s inspired by Jay’s rap from the iconic Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back entry in the View Askewniverse. Raison D-Etre recipe

    Episode 29: Halloween Special

    Episode 29: Halloween Special

    In this Halloween themed episode Wrey, Shannon and Scott each share a beer which reminds them of Halloween. 



    Wrey's Pick
    Parallel49 - Schadenfreude
    Brewed as a traditional Oktoberfest Lager, this beer sets itself apart from other pumpkin ales by being light and refreshing. Pumpkin is used in the mash along with traditional pumpkin pie spicing in the brew kettle. A large portion of the grain used is Munich malt which gives a nice pie crust flavour to the beer.

    Shannon's Pick
    Foamer's Folly - BEETLEJUICE – Beet, Blueberry, & Boysenberry Sour
    LET’S TURN ON THE JUICE AND SEE WHAT SHAKES LOOSE
    This Vibrant Sour has been pumped up by the addition of Beetroot, Boysenberry And Blueberry, creating a puckeringly sour, deliciously juicy beer.
    https://foamersfolly.ca/portfolio-item/beetlejuice-beet-blueberry-boysenberry-sour/



    Scott's Pick
    Brasserie Dunham - Dunham Jane Doe - Assemblage Hors-Série 8
    Blended barrel-aged sour beers with guava.
