In this week’s episode we talk about Sharapova’s return to tennis, Serena’s big news, Coach Cal’s 30 for 30, EPL, baseball, and much more! You won’t want to miss us pontifidrinking about salmon pants at Keeneland, Herbal Essences commercials from the 1990s, plus animals doing jobs in our first fictional character football draft
The Sharin’ Beer this week comes from DuClaw, and is a take on their peanut butter porter Sweet Baby Jesus. Sweet Baby Jesus was reviewed on a previous episode, sorry we can’t remember which one, but we do remember that it just didn’t have the real strong peanut butter flavor we were looking for. The Sweet Baby Java is the same peanut butter porter infused with espresso. Again not enough peanut butter flavor for us, but the espresso added a nice coffee flavor that did pair well with the subtle peanut butter. If you like coffee beers this is one for you.
Leigh’s pick this week is from Angry Orchard and it’s a cider from them that we hadn’t heard of. Easy Apple is unfiltered and a bit cloudy (if you’re not a fan of unfiltered products or they don’t agree with you, you probably want to skip this). Leigh founded if very drinkable though, dry and not too sweet and with an alcohol percentage of 4.2 this could be a go to for some patio day drinking.
Stacey’s pick this week, Lime Pilsner from Uinta (we still don’t know how to pronounce this) is also perfect for doing some patio day drinking, the can also fit well in a koozie. Stacey thought this beer was fairly light and had just the right amount of lime. Avoid Bud Light Lime, Corona etc. and pick this up. Definitely a recommend for the upcoming summer pool/backyard get togethers.
Lauren’s pick this week comes from Lagunitas. We’ve had several Lagunitas products on the show before and we still haven’t found one we didnt like. Undercover Investigation Shut-Down Ale is kind of long name, but the beer was big on flavor. The percentage was a little high at over 9%, but with like a lot of Lagunitas products it was a smooth easy drinking beer that wasn’t too hoppy.
Carrie’s pick this week comes from Avery Brewing’s Dictator Series. Carrie had the Kaiser in a previous episode and had to try the Czar. The Czar is an Imperial Stout and like with any good Imperial Stout it’s got a pretty high percentage at over 10. This is definitely not a beer for day or patio drinking. As Imperial Stout’s go it was OK. It was slightly bitter at first and as it warmed up the molasses flavor really came through. It’s a recommend if you like Imperial Stout’s and Carrie didn’t hate it near as much as the Boleshivk’s hated the guy on the label.
