The big news today on Chip the Beer Guy is.....Video! Now you can not only listen to the show on podcast, but also stare blindly at the blurry moving images that appear to be people drinking beer. Hopefully this will get better, but for now you'll have to be satisfied with seeing a blurry image of one half of Chip, filmed from what appears to be a mile down the hallway. Well enough camera fun....today's show featured Breckenridge Brewery's Agave Wheat. I keep picturing a shot of Petron dropped in a pint of Paulaner, but the brew does sound interesting. It's a 4.2% ABV and of course a low IBU of 9, brewed with Fuggle, Cascade & Willametter hops and Pale, White Wheat, Torrified Wheat, Carapils, Caramel and Munich malts. I really thought the conversation about how Chip's show was driving people toward hoppier beers, right as the price of hoppier beers are going through the roof was funny. Think of it as Chip's economic stimulus. I was also happy to hear them mention two of our mybeerbuzz.com members (Purv's and Plaza Beverage) in the show. Today's favorite quote was a tough choice. I was leaning toward, "beer prices are up so adjust your budget accordingly", or maybe even "beer is cheaper per gallon than gas"...but in the end I had to go with "anyone can choke down just one" nobody wastes a beer.
Cheers guys! Entertaining as always.
