Episode #63: Four Friends of the Hopocalypse


Enjoy this rad intro video to the podcast made by What’s On Draft!


We are joined by some of our beer friends!  We are joined this show by Alex Van Horne from Intergalactic Brewing Company, Will Keizer from Premier Stainless Systems, Josh Hembree from Setting Sun Sake Brewing Co., and Tom Keliinoi from What’s On Draft.  We are also joined by the Four Horsemen of the Hopocalypse from Drake’s Brewing; Green Label (DIPA), White Label (White DIPA), Red Label (Blood Orange DIPA), and Black Label (TIPA).

The Questions:

Do we care about Budweiser changing their name to “America” for the summer?

What types of cans do you like?  12 oz., 16 oz., or Crowler?

Borrowing from The Perfect Pour, if you only had $20 which beers would you buy?

Favorite breweries in San Diego?

Does money made from a “Big Beer” sale used to create a new “craft” brewery matter?  Does where the money comes from make a difference?

Are Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaigns a good idea?

Speaking of campaigns…

What’s On Draft is doing a Kickstarter to help create their second season.  GO FUND THEM!

Also, Intergalactic Brewing is doing an Indiegogo to help get a crowler machine and start a cask program.  GO FUND THEM!

I Do Declare!

Thank you The Perfect Pour, Colin Salmon, Tait Campbell, Ken Lierman, Amy (and Rudy) Pollorena, Chris Bush, Mitch Tantrum, Tony Bagz, and Aaron Graham!
