We made it through the holiday weekend unscathed and are almost done with this short work week. Nice.
On this week's show we recap Brian and Nate's trips to Florida and the beer they got into on their travels. Smalls and I stayed here but Smalls threw a party so we had some grilled meats and beers with friends and then I binged the rest of Ted Lasso.
I sip on a new Scofflaw brew called Hop Shatter. Here's what the brewery has to say about the beer.
Originally brewed for the 2023 Craft Brewers Conference, this potent IPA showcase CGX Cryogenic Lupulin Pellets, jam-packed with resins and oils for Flavor and Aroma and less environmental impact and production waste. Featuring Motueka CGX, Amarillo CGX, and Cashmere T-90 for notes of zesty citrus, with a touch of floral, white grape, and fresh berries.
Interesting. Very tasty beer, too.
We discuss Sima, also known as Finnish Spring Mead. It's a very low alcohol beverage brewed for May Day festival, known as Vappu in Finland. Brian tried a commercial take on the style this weekend but it's also a very easy one to brew at home.
A bill is up to allow shipping alcohol by USPS. We won't get too excited for that just yet as it's been talked about before, but we'll see. Brewers are buying their breweries back from Big Beer. Quite the turn of events, I wonder if we'll see more of it?
And the monks are really sick of people reselling their beer and they're cracking down. If you go to the Netherlands and buy a Trappist ale at a convenience store don't be surprised when a bunch of guys in robes come after you. You've been warned.
