Wheat Are We Currantly Talking About | Episode 204 | Beer Review

Image
This week, we're experiencing the the Black Currant Wheat Ale brewed lovingly by Phillips Brewing & Malting Co. It is a fruity yet tart beer and it has one of the best illustrations of black currants we've ever seen. Watch us as we drink our way through this dark-ish beer.

Dave showed off his ability to talk about radler beer (and, really, is a radler a beer?) and a bear crept quietly from his armoire and ate him alive.

We Are Members of the Nightwatch | Episode 127

Image
For our final episode of the year, we talk about Star Wars (no spoilers!) and reflect a little bit on how the holidays are awesome and what we all got for Christmas.

Dave was given a Christmas Gift of not being eaten by a large group of sleepy bears.

You Are Tasty, Mr. Grinch | Episode 126

Image
One of the latest holiday offerings from Bridge Brewing is known as The Grinch. This solid stout has a full holiday flavouring of awesome and made us smile.

Dave was sick the week before but we really think he was held hostage by a clan of bears known as The Clan.

Tis The Season To Be Naughty | Episode 125

Image
We launch into this one with eyes closed because it is far too naughty to discuss. But.. we take a crack at it anyway. Driftwood has made a naughty extra special bitter for us this time.

Dave was not ready to be naughty to he was spanked by a bear cub.

The Oaked Memories | Episode 124

Image
We delve into the thirty-year-old ice bock by Vancouver Island Brewery. But this time there is a small twist... this one has been soaked in barrels that created fine wines from around the universe.

I know, right?

Dave tried to soak his head inside one of the barrels and found very quickly that bears will follow him anywhere.

We Have Many Roguish Tendencies | Episode 123

Image
Rogue hit the tongues today with their Chocolate Hazelnut amazingness. We haven't done a Rogue beer in a while and this one is very much a lead up to the holidays.

Dave was drowned in a vat of chocolate and covered with nuts. Bears like nuts, if you know what I mean.

We Are Keepin' It Sudsy | Episode 122

Image
We're chatting up the maple flavoured Fernie offering called the Sap Sucker! It is a dark porter with a maple hint... let's see what we think.

Dave was very yawny today and it caused a bear avalanche and he we crushed under a tonne of raging fur.

From The True Land of Ice and Snow | Episode 121

Image
We head off to Iceland this time and try out a more recent creation named Brio. It is a pilsner. It was light, fluffy, and not too bad. But it wasn't amazing...

Dave found his calling... chasing large white bears across the tundra. We watched him run after them for six days before he disappeared on the horizon.

Where Did Everybody Gose? | Episode 120

Image
What is a Gose? What is the plural of Gose? Did you have a Gose time? What about that Gose? Did that Gose bother you? Did that Gose make your podcast episode absolutely amazing? It did for us! Similar to a lager or pilsner, a Gose is good. Good Gose. Now, sit. Gooooood Gose. You're such a good Gose, aren't you!

Dave couldn't figure out what the plural of Gose was and his head exploded. Small miniature bears cleaned up what was left.

We Ain't Crabby About That Ginger | Episode 119

Image
We head back into the ginger beers of the world because Dave really likes them. He liked this one. And so did we... holy cow, this is one of the best ginger beer's we've run into and I suspect we will enjoy it again in the future.

Dave poured ginger beer all over himself and a bear cub humped his leg with a ferocity never seen by Dave before.

To Boldy Go Where No Beer Has Gone Before | Episode 118

Image
The Dead Frog Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock is not flat. We talk about television, science fiction, and flat-earthers this week and we wish we had more beer to get us through. All hail the Reaper!

A Klingon bear makes its home in Dave's hair and kneads him until he explodes.

The Snickering Pooper | Episode 117

Image
It is another day and we're trying out the Red Racer Snickerdoodle Pumpkin Ale! A ginger laced yummy beer where we discuss the most important story of the day... the mad pooper.

Dave was almost awake today but we can't blame him after that driving test he had to facilitate with a bear.

Zombie Beer Extravaganza | Episode 116

Image
We are a little tired this week after the excitement of the Great Canadian Beerfest in Victoria this year.

Dave had to get a new girlfriend this year. She is furry and cute but, hey, she is still a bear and decided to play hopscotch with his head.

The Radical Stoutnik | Episode 115

Image
We failed at acquiring the same beer this week and we've ended up with two selections. Lock is also in town but he heads off to the wilds of law school next week so we might not see him for a while.

Dave was quiet for the majority of this episode because he was busy texting his new bear date. She stood him up.

The Grim Tale of the Sunken Submarines | Episode 114

Image
This week we talk about all kinds of things related to news of the weird... and something about how to buy real estate from a cool people we know.

Dave thought out loud and was forced to dance with a bear. We knew it was only a matter of time until Dave ignited into flames.

The Slow Wit of Change | Episode 113

Image
This week we get all confused because the beer changed its name! We scurried around searching for the Slow Drift Witbier while the Ol' Willy Wit was staring us down from the back of the shelves. Well played, Fernie Brewing Co.

Dave is hit on the head by a brown bear and has his beer stolen from him. That is so like Dave. Bearhandled and then losing his beer. Ah, Dave.

A Hoyner Pilsner Mystery | Episode 112

Image
This week, we find ourselves on an adventure... the adventure of why Hoyne Brewing Co. renamed their Pilsner beer! The intrigue! The wonder! Is there a mysterious bunch of kids hanging around with a large dog that could help?

Or will our intrepid bunch of beer drinkers be able to solve the mystery? Watch and find out!

Dave looks to the North and sees an army of zombie bears... bearing down on him. Will he survive the Bear King's army?

The Fruity Grapeness Monster | Episode 111

Image
For some reason, we decided we were as cool as Cory Hart... which we aren't. We hit up Whistler Brewing's Grapefruit Ale and we liked it. It isn't sweet... it isn't tart... it is just right.

Like those bears Dave has to fight off every morning when he goes to his driveway.

The Perfect Beer Storm | Episode 110

Image
Like the movie, this beer hit us like a rogue wave. It is dark... stormy... and worth it.

Dave fell overboard when a bear pulled him over the side. They were wrestling in the surf and that was the final glimpse we ever had of our fair haired friend.

Drinking Canadian Heritage | Episode 109

Image
We drink to Canada and we drink to drink the heritage ale. Dave is eaten by bears.

Image
The British invasion has happened again and we were ready to accept it. But the bottles were sooooo weird.

You Wanna Get Fresh With Us? | Episode 105

Image
Lock is back from his schoolin' down south and he brought some recommendations with him. We try out the freshest IPA we've ever had (up to this point) and blabber about many other things.

Dave was humped by a grizzly bear while he washed his parents' car.

We Blow Raspberries In Your General Direction | Episode 104

Image
This week we run into a raspberry bush and drink all that there is to be had. It was touch and go there for a while but we managed to enjoy every last drop.

Dave was cuddled by a momma bear when he attempted to eat her porridge. They were "that kind" of a bear couple and very open to letting him experiment. They then ate him.


Bowen Island The Lager | Episode 103

Image
Bowen Island Brewing hits us with a summer lager that is quite refreshing and light. But we put it to the test and we made sure that we weren't being duped by some Hollywood elites. You know what I mean....

Dave rocks out on stage but is then scooped up by ninja bears and whisked away by chopper. We never heard from him again.

Space Bandits Steal Our Kolsch | Episode 102

Image
We return to another Bomber Brewing beer... but this time, it is different. It is a Bandit Kolsch beer and we are going to see how it applies to Starfleet. Yeah, we did try. But did we succeed?

Dave was abducted by bear worshippers while he was searching for the beer in his local watering hole but they brought him back because... well, just look at him.

We Stout, Therefore We Are | Episode 101

Image
We just had our 100th episode and decided that our follow up should be an exciting adventure of a reunion of sorts. Our first beer was a milk stout and we thought it would be a nice nod to our very first episode.

Dave was a little sleepy this time so we set him on fire, cooked him up, and then fed him to a bear named Billy. Billy was pleased.

We Are The Crafty Boys | Episode 100

Image
This is episode 100. Anything can happen... like us drinking a dunkel because we can.

Dave married a bear.

We're Wearing #99 | Episode 99

Image
For some reason, we were tired this day so we decided to drink a weird sour... and Steamworks Brewery provided.

Dave was looking a little under the weather this time and a bear crawled into bed with him to keep him warm.

We Listen To The Piper's A Second Time | Episode 98

Image
This week, we've gone back to a beer we covered in Episode 12 - Vancouver Island Brewery's Piper's Pale Ale. This is a beer we "grew up on" and, in the previous episode, we were underwhelmed. Our taste buds had grown up and we had tasted too many other good beers.

But!

In this episode, the love fest started up again as the beer has been re-formulated and we were happy to try it again.

Dave had a date with a bear but it didn't go well. He was mauled with love.

We Have A Great Pils To Potts In | Episode 97

Image
The moon in your eyes is the type of moon that we should all have in our glasses. Or something like that.
