Episode 166: When do you Stout?


It’s just the hosts today!  We didn’t have any special planned so we decided to have only the hosts on, it’s been awhile when we’ve done this.  We start off the show with San Diego Magazine’s Best Restaurants of 2018.  We drink a few beers as well, an unreleased Belgian IPA from Longship Brewery and an NE style IPA from Ola Brew.  Of course, we give our opinions on both.  After a break, we finish up the Best Restaurants segment and open up beers from Burning Beard, Modern Times, and Toolbox.  We move into other topics like:

  • The San Diego Brewers Guild’s new SD Beer app.
  • Whether or not you should drink from the can or always pour into a glass?
  • What factors to do you look at when going into a new brewery?
  • When do you Stout?

In the News

  • ChuckAlek is changing but not changing at the same time. Husband and wife team Grant Fraley and Marta Jankowska are moving to Colorado but the brewery and garden are staying open under the supervision of head brewer Samantha Olson.  Read more at West Coaster.
