    7th Anniversary - I like beer and candy - ep468

    7th Anniversary - I like beer and candy - ep468

    It's our 7th Anniversary. We're as shocked as you are. It's been seven great years and so many amazing and not so amazing beers. There's been great beer festivals and awesome inteviews. One thing we haven't covered is beers and food. This is our first beer and food episode. We start with beer and candy. It might seem like an odd combination but it can be amazing. We created a regular Willy Wonka table full of different types of candies and four different types of beer. We have sour, fruit, chocolate, liquorice and some other candies to pair with a sour beer, a lager, an IPA and a stout. It's a lot of fun with a lot of options and we learn something in the process.

    Ceveja de Ananas 1864 - Barona Outra Lado Third Anniversary Barrel Project - ep467

    Ceveja de Ananas 1864 - Barona Outra Lado Third Anniversary Barrel Project - ep467

    Stefan was travelling again and he visited the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores island chain as well as Lisbon, Portugal. Of course, this means he brings back some beers to try. Sao Miguel is the only place in Europe that grows tea and pineapples. The pineapple plantations are all hothouse based which creates smaller and sweeter fruit. They aslo create a pineapple beer called Ceveja de Ananas 1864. It's fruit beer which is a fun entry into the beer world. In Lisbon in a back alley there is a beer bar called Outra Lado. It's a great craft beer bar with lots of options.  Every year they team up with a brewery to releaes their anniversay beer. Barona Outra Lado Third Anniversary Barrel Project is a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout.

    Amundsen Dessert in a Can Coffee Coconut and Caramel Macaroon - Lervig Off the Rack Australia Dark Rum 2021 - ep466

    Amundsen Dessert in a Can Coffee Coconut and Caramel Macaroon - Lervig Off the Rack Australia Dark Rum 2021 - ep466

    It's a dark and heavy episode. We have two big, heavy Norwegian imperial stouts this episode. Amundsen Dessert in a Can Coffee Coconut and Caramel Macaroon is what it says on the can. Coffee, coconut and caramel macaroons give this a sweet, delicious imperial stout incredible flavor and keep it from being way too sweet. Lervig Off the Rack is their premium stout series and they rarely disappoint. Australia Dark Rum 2021 is a blend of imperial stout with chocolate, vanilla and caramel with another stout to balance it out. It's then aged on dark rum barrels for 12 months to create a unique experiece that you'll want more than one bottle of.

    Bishops Arms - Pentrich Saint Monday - Hidden Springs Life on Standby - ep465

    We make it back to Bishops Arms Gustav Torg for some fun new beers. They've slowly become one of the best beer bars in all of Sweden and a must stop place for any beer fan. They always have a great tap list and an impressive bottle list. We're joined by Pontus to try Pentrich Brewing Saint Monday first. This Wee Heavy is a collaboration with Cult of Oak. Brewed with maple syrup, it's rich caramel and toffee notes are complimented with a light smokey back flavor. Hidden Springs on tap is exciting. It's kind of crazy we can get them in Sweden. Life on Standby is an apple brandy barrel aged English-style barleywine. It's boozy and intense.

    Pomona Island Tamaki I - De Ranke Kriek de Ranke 2021 - ep464

    Pomona Island Tamaki I - De Ranke Kriek de Ranke 2021 - ep464

    Pomona Island Tamaki I is a fruit beer from England. It's made with plums and grilled Hojicha tea added to a farmhouse sour. The result is a delightful blend of plums and tea. It's a playful beer that will be loved by some and disliked by others. Overall, a very fun experiment.  De Ranke Kriek de Ranke 2021 is a 70% Belgian sour mixed with 30% cherry lambic. This is a beer that needs to be drunk fresh otherwise you'll miss the cherries. Since they are mixing two things instead of adding cherries to a lambic, you miss the complexity of the cherries that would evolve over time.

    Stormgatan - Genys Tattoo Lager - Hyllie 212 - ep463

    Stormgatan - Genys Tattoo Lager - Hyllie 212 - ep463

    We get out of the house and make it to Stormgatan. It's a great taproom for Hyllie Brewery. We were excited to finally feature the location on the show. They a bit of a tap takeover going and lots of guest beers on tap. We were able to try Lithuanian brewery Genys Organic Tattoo Lager. IT's a light, crisp very crushable lager to enjoy over and over again. We can't go to Hyllie's taproom without having at least one Hyllie Brewing beer to review. Hyllie 212 is an American pale ale that hits the spot on a warm summe day.
