Spilt Milk Stouts

Back in 2004 at the Stone 8th Anniversary Party/Beer Fest, I got to try my first milk stout.  People were stopping me as I walked by the Left Hand beer tent asking me if I tried the Milk Stout.  I hopped in line and tasted another beer that changed my attitude towards craft beer forever.  Chris and Mike were also at said event and had similar experiences.  So, this week, we go back to the Left Hand Milk Stout and see if it’s still as epic as it was seven years ago.  Cheers!

Got Milk Stouts?

For this week’s edition of the Beer Coasters Podcast, the lactose intolerant need not apply.  We’ve done stouts on our craft beer review podcast before, but we haven’t featured stouts of the milky variety, until now.  Left Hand Brewing is our featured Milk Stout in our Fermentation Conversation.

Toby heads out to the barn, pails in hand and fills them up with some Class V Stout from Kern River Brewing Co.  Chris returns to the show, cheats a little and goes with the Chocolate Ale from Boulevard.  Mike then firmly grasps the utter of the Wachusett Milk Stout.

Some small craft brewers in Texas may be getting wronged in our Hop Topic this week and our Backwash adds a little to the Evolution Of The Beer Geek.  Cheers!

The Fall Guys Issue

Here’s the latest issue of the Beer Coasters Podcast: The Fall Guys Issue.  On this, the first day of Fall, we celebrate by cracking open a few craft beers only available this time of year.  We do love the crisp, light beers of Summer, but, we couldn’t be more excited to get back into those malty beers of the cooler months.  Thanks for stopping by the Beer Coasters Blog and make sure you swing by the website for further beer happenings.

We might fall from a tall building, we might roll a brand new car, because we’re the unknown drinkers that made Calagione such a star.  Well, maybe that last part was a stretch.  It’s finally Fall here on the Beer Coasters podcast, so we chose a few Fall release craft beers to review.  Both Mike and Toby pack away the white shoes and Hawaiian shirts for A Little Sumpin’ Willd from Lagunitas.  Mike puts the rake on stand-by and cracks open a Harvest Ale from Ipswich Ales.  Toby picks out the biggest Pumpkin he can find from Wasatch Beers.

We then study up on the Evolution Of The Beer Geek and see how far we’ve come.  Are you ready for Fall?  We sure are.  Thanks for checking out the show, we hope you enjoy.  It’s a death-defying life we lead, but we take our chances.  Cheers!

No respect from the ladies, only from the beer.
