Informational and Entertaining

The sour hour has consistently been both informational and entertaining since it’s inception. There’s literally no episode where you won’t find valuable information while cracking up at Jay and Scottt’s weird humor.

The Session, on the other hand, is a plague. I’m afraid for my life. After listening to just 30 seconds of the session, a “Ring”-like sequence occurred where I received a phone call from my own phone number with a raspy voice informing me that in seven days, all of my mixed fermentations will be riddled with high concentrations of THP. I immediately wet my pants and dumped all of my beer that I’ve been carefully shepherding for months. My house smells like mouse piss and cheerios. Do not listen to the Session. They will ruin your beer and invade your dreams. Run.

If/When y’all ever have Holy Mountain on, rejoiner suggestion would have to be Cough - Haunter of the Dark.

Getting Goofy and Sour

The Brewing Network has been a magnificent find for me as a craft beer lover and new homebrewer. The Sour Hour is like the low key cool guy in the room. It’ll show you a good time.

Best BN show! - 3 stars

Opening a brewery in a couple months (in Ellijay Ga{shameless plug}) and this show has been such a valuable resource for figuring out how to (hopefully) do right by my favorite beer style. I’m on ep 34, but I also listen to new episodes as they get posted. This show is much better than any other BN show, especially the Session.

3/5 stars!
