EPISODE #99.5: Happy Holidays From The Beer Is Fundamental Show/Dogfish Head Utopia Is Really Good
This is not episode 100. This is episode 99.5. We wanted to do a show before the Holidays. We also want to introduce a new move to the show. We usually We pop open a beer after the first commercial break. However, we want to get into the beer at the beginning. That way if you are drinking with us, we can be drinking with you because we know that you are more than likely drinking before the show and you are definitely not waiting until we get to the first break. Also, this way, if we have more than one beer, we can spread it out amongst the show. So, the beer that we have tonight is the Dogfish Head Utopias Barrel Aged World Wide Stout. The Dogfish Head Utopia is the Sam Adams little brother. The result is a jet-black, rich and roasty beer with balanced notes of espresso, cocoa, sherry and vanilla that clocks in at 17.3% ABV. There is a serious issue in the beer industry and we don’t know how this is going to turn out. There is a serious Aluminum and Can Shortage hitting the beer and soda industries. In this episode, we have a snippet of a song from Solemn Brigham (@solemnbrigham). He is 1/2 of the group Marlowe. His music has been featured on Gatorade's G is for Greatness ad campaign, 7-Eleven's Harmony Korine ad, and NBA2K22. South Sinner Street is his debut solo album. The song is Vantablack. Make sure that you check him out on Bandcamp.

EPISODE #99: What Should You Drink First? Sour or Stout?
While sitting in one of our favorite beer establishments, we noticed that they had some of their sours and a couple of their stouts. I wanted to try them all. But we knew that the sours would go very fast. One tapped out while we were there. Yet, we didn’t know what I should have first. Sour or stout. We understand the method as it relates to bitterness and color. We know it's always the softer beers first, so starting with pilsners/blonde/amber then IPA, then red/brown ales, is normally the way to go. Dark/strong beers are always last. But where does sour fall into this line up. During this episode, we have the Perenial Artisian Ales SUMP COFFEE STOUT. It’s an imperial coffee stout is made in collaboration with Scott Carey & Co. at South City's Sump Coffee. They chose a coffee from the "La Virgen" region of Colombia. We also have the Schmoojee Strawberry Blueberry Puffsicle Cotton Candy by Imprint Beer Co. Its pretty much made of cotton candy, strawberries and blueberries. The feature tune for this episode is a snippet of a song from the duo Jyroscope and Montana Mack from their album, Happy Medium. The track is Work. Make sure that you check them out on Bandcamp.

EPISODE #98: Yes, It’s Pumpkin Beer Time Again.
Its that time of the year. It’s the Fall or Autumn, whichever one you prefer. And along with this time of the year, we have none other than pumpkin beers and, of course, stouts. However, we are going to focus on the pumpkin beers on this episode. We lucked up and got a great selection from our good friend Matt over at Bone Sack Speakeasy, right here in Saint Cloud. In this episode, we have three pumpkin beers to try courtesy of O’Fallon Brewery out of Maryland Heights, Missouri. First, Pumpkin Beer Don’t be fooled by mere pumpkin flavor… This is the real McCoy! We use soooo much real pumpkin in our mash that it adds hours to the lauter. Second, Maple Bacon Pumpkin Red Ale This pumpkin Red Ale has a rich malty backbone of toasted caramel candy sweetness. We used a blend of smoked malts from Weyermann Malt in Germany and a touch of salt to achieve a soft natural smoked bacon flavor that balances with the sweet caramel notes. Third, Salted Caramel Pumpkin lives up to its name as a malt forward caramel flavored ale with the perfect balance of sweet and salt. To achieve this balance, we are using a blend of Caramel malts and Lactose for a creamy sweetness and add just the right amount of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt as a contrast. Finally, we also had two other pumpkin beers that just happen to fall into our laps. The featured artist of the show is LB That Producer Guy. Check him out here. We want to thank you for stopping by and spending some time with us at the Beer Is Fundamental Show. We are only 2 episodes away from episode 100. We are back at it. So, episode 100 will be upon us really soon. We hope that you had a good time in the neighbeerhood. We want to recognize our usual supporters. Partin Liquors, Half-Barrel Beer Project, The Commission Beer Chamber, GB Bottleshop, Orlando Ale Line, and my man John at Vintage Vinos.

EPISODE #96: HAPPY NATIONAL IPA DAY!!
HAPPY NATIONAL IPA DAY!! We figured that this will be a great day to do a show. National IPA Day on the first Thursday in August celebrates the beer known as India Pale Ale Beer. IPA is one of the most popular types of craft beers, it’s also making a resurgence with local microbreweries. Many are experiencing success as their brew finds its way into local restaurants and pubs. First, for this episode and for National IPA Day we focused on two IPAs from two Breweries. The beers that we had were the Verification Code Double IPA from Cerebral and the Pillow Stacks Double IPA from Outer Range. The Verification Code is hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Citra, Lotus & Motueka. The tangerine and orange flavors are abundant in this one. Pillow Stacks Nose is wonderful, fresh mango and passion fruit. Taste is a nice hybrid between the IPA and NEIPA styles. Orange and tangerine combine nicely with the mango and passion fruit over a light but large malt base. Finish is a moderate citrus rind bitterness.

EPISODE #95: Ellipsis Brewing SourFest Was A Blast
The Ellipsis Brewing SourFest also known as the Fruit Punch Project Day was an absolute hit. There were a very good amount of breweries present and they all had some great beers. Lady T had to work. So I was stuck doing the show by myself. However, I was able to speak with a few people as they sipped their sours. First, my three favorite beers of the festival were:1. Spreadsheet Wizard by Corporate Ladder2. Monday Morning Bluez by Design Builder/Ellipsis3. Fruit by the...Pineapple, Mango and Coconut by Ellipsis Don't get me wrong. There were a lot of good beers including some awesome mead. You know how I feel about mead. However, these were the ones that I rated a 5. I had to do the show in three parts because I became overly excited at the festival (no, I was not drunk). Lady T will be with me next time to keep me under control. LOL!

EPISODE 94: What is the Definition of Craft Beer?; Beer of the Show: Lone Pine Oh-J Double IPA
Let’s Enjoy Life! It has been a while since you’ve heard from us. We’ve just been enjoying this nice summer. You know just enjoy this great Florida living. Of course, we’ve had some beers along the way. We do want to announce that we will be headed to the Barrel and Flow Beer Festival in September. It will be in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The dates of the festival is September 10 through the 12th. Tickets are still available so it would be great if you will join us. We also became the newest members of the craft beer club called Craftapped. Craftapped is a social craft beverage club with 350+ various partner breweries, cideries, distillers, restaurants and bars located in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Missouri, Florida, Kansas, North Dakota and Iowa. Not only do we go into detail of how it works. In fact, we describe the benefits of being a member. The beer of the show is the Lone Pine Brewing Oh-J Double IPA. It is described as a carefully selected arrangement of late-addition hops to produce a citrus punch. We got an email from a listener which asked for our definition of craft beer. Hopefully, we did not disappoint. We also dove deep into Inside Hook magazine’s article “Which MLB Ballpark Has the Best Craft Beer?” They ranked all 30 ball parks. We don’t necessarily agree with the rankings. Actually, we think that there are some issues. The artist of the episode is Flo Milli and we highlighted her track, Beef FloMix.

There were 11 contestants with around 14 or 15 beers in the competition. There was a great amount of Belgian beers. A nice selection of IPAs and a couple of good pilsners. The beer for this episode is the Sprinkle Factor by Ology Brewing out of Tallahassee, Florida. We had a good discussion about the flavors and quality of this craft beer.

This mead is expected to have a great deal of passionfruit and raspberries. They added some vanilla to create the body that they wanted. Arkane is known for their sours.
