Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 - 2-year Anniversary Show

30 June 2008

The big extravaganza 2-year Chip the Beer Guy anniversary is underway. I will report more later on the show, but I wanted to pass on that for those trying to tune in at work, the full show is being broadcast LIVE with audio and video. Click HERE to watch/listen.


Show Update: It's been an entertaining morning on Rock 107, although I admit I wish the 4-hour show started a little later on my day-off. Despite the early hour, I did manage to tune into much of the show. Lots of interesting beers, food, guests (Leo Orlandini, Jim Koch, Florian Kuplent, John Francis...) and frivolity, and lots of funny comments. Rather than doing a play-by-play I thought I'd post about my favorite parts of the show and some of my favorite quotes.

I always love hearing Jim Koch from Sam Adams and today was no exception. With a gift of Sam Adams Utopias (52-proof tripel bock), Jim was funny as every, I liked Jim's fathers quote about how he drinks beer and doesn't gain weight, "There's food in beer but no beer in food...what do you need all that food for." My favorite Jim-ism and perhaps one of the better quotes of the day was , "Being the largest craft brewer is like being the tallest pygmy."

I do have a minor criticism of today's show. This was sort of an oops-moment on the show. After saying goodbye to John Francis of Lancaster Brewing, there was a small in perceivable gap after John's last words before the "Shut your festering gob" Monty Python sound clip played. On the air it sounded like it was directed at John....oops!

I thought I'd follow along today with pictures and since a single picture can speak a thousand words here are two thousand words. The first is a little photo I like to call "Is that sunburn or are you just happy to be drinking all morning?" Next, and perhaps my favorite, I like to call "What Chip does during the break." That's not a microphone he's tipping back.





The highlight of the show for me was our own mybeerbuzz members like Purvs, Lion Brewing, Victory and One Guy Brewing getting their much deserved publicity. Congratulations guys !

I debated most of the morning what my favorite quote would be. With 4-hours of listening it was not easy. I made my decision based on the belly laugh meter. I liked the Stone Brewing quote of, "The beer isn't too expensive, you're too cheap", I also liked Webster's quote that it "smelled so much better in the studio than the normal funeral home air freshener scent", but I genuinely laughed at a quote I suspect was not intended to be funny. In talking about fine meats marinated in beer, Chip said "This burger is so filling it's like a 1-burger meal." I found myself asking....wait who's eating a 2-burger meal?

Congratulations Chip on 2-years of brews and thanks to Daniels, Webster and all of the Rock 107 guys....very funny and a great show....Cheers!!

NEPA Beer Club

28 June 2008

As I sit down to write this note, I'm staring at a white cardboard box with all sorts of colorful bottle caps peeking out at me from the darkness of the box. I've just returned home from the NEPA Beer Club and this box is my own little surprise beer extravaganza.

For those that don't know, the NEPA Beer club started about 16 months ago and the members meet monthly to; well you guessed it...split beer. Beer styles are agreed upon and and each member buys a case of beer for the split, and each member goes home with a wonderful mixed case of beer. IPA, Bocks, Wheats, Belgian big bottles...you name it, they've split it. You can opt in or out any month and the variety of beers is wonderful.

This month the club decided to pool their money, and two of our members (Thanks Kevin & Lindo) traveled to Stockertown beverage for a surprise beer split. So how's this for a surprise selection: Tommyknocker TundraBeary, Breckenridge Extra ESB 471 Small Batch, Brasserie Dieu Du Ciele Derniere Volonte, Founders Red Rye, Lakefront Organic ESB, Atwater Block Dirty Blonde, Southampton IPA, Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza, Mikkeller It's Alive, Norrebro Bryghus North Bridge Extreme, Olfabrikken 100 Gram IPA, Fantome Saison, Cuvee de Rank...and yes a Bananatana. Incredible selection of beers!

We're always looking for new members so PLEASE join us. Great beers, great variety, good people...what more could you ask for. Membership is open...participate in the split when you want, don't participate when you don't want. This is a great group of people and they travel from all over PA to participate. If you're interested (and why wouldn't any beer lover be interested)...you can Click HERE to go the NEPA Beer Club Blog. Check out the previous beers splits and drop Josh or Kevin an e-Mail to join us. Are YOU in?

Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 - Leinenkugels Summer Shandy

27 June 2008

It's a new day, a new show, and a new camera angle. Blurry as ever, but now we get to see even less....but wait...a disco ball too? Be still my heart. Anyway, toady's show started with a review of the Wilkes-Barre area sixer shops. It was nice to hear Chip mention some of our mybeerbuzz regulars like Purvs, Jessup Beverage and Plaza Beverage, but also talk about some of our locals like Goldsteins, Pizza Mill & Antonios. As a side note I have contacted all of our locals, so please mention mybeerbuzz the next time you're in buying beer. I'd love to get more of our local sixer shops on-line. On another note, the boys on Rock 107 asked where they can find out about sixer shops and beer tastings.....Forgive my shameless self-promotion but, CHECK HERE! Apparently the boys haven't stumbled on our fine blog yet.


Before we get to the beer of the week, a quick reminder. Monday June 30th will be a 4-hour show to celebrate the 2-year anniversary of Chip the Beer Guy on Rock 107. Special guests, multiple beer samplings....sounds like a good time.


Today's beer was Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. (All of Chip's beers are now available the day of the show @ Grotto Pizza.) Now don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Sunset Wheat and Berry Weiss, but Summer Shandy is a little tough for me. The history of Shandy is to mix a beer and a soda, and although Leinie's Shandy tastes more like a Lemonade/Beer mix, it's still a little bit of an odd "beer"...(and note that beer is in quotes). OK guys....this is two weeks of twist-off tops in a row...probably not a good trend.


For my favorite quote of the week I started with "Most people know what Bud tastes like", but had to go with Dave's quote that "Summer Shandy prevents scurvy."


Thanks guys...always funny....Cheers!

Bavarian Barbarian Releases New Beer - Not...

25 June 2008

From Mike Hiller:

Oops...Never mind. I spoke with Mike today (6/26) and he was not happy with the Square Feet Wheat. The entire batch will be dumped down the drain and he's reworking the recipe. Stay tuned !

I haven't written a press release yet, but I just transferred the Square Feet Wheat to the finishing tanks to carbonate and it should be finished by tomorrow. So far, it tastes pretty good. Preliminary taste tests with raspberry and woodruff syrups have been promising. The wheat beer itself is decent. I was originally going to go for a true Berliner Weisse, but handling a bacterial yeast is much to advanced for our facility right now. That being said, the wheat beer is a pretty standard one - a slight tart finish, but not really packed with flavor. It's definitely a nice vehicle for the syrups.

More Beer in Local Supermarket

Boro council made it official last night....Weiss Supermarket on 4th St in Sunbury (Northampton Co) will offer beer. Customers will be able to buy 6-packs for take-out or singles to drink in their Market Cafe. Small steps in the normal beer world, but these new beer "markets" are certainly pretty big steps in a backward beer-state like PA. Stay tuned for anarchy and chaos ;)

Mergers, mergers and more mergers....

We've heard about the Pyramid/Magic Hat merger and the InBev/Bud war....but

This from the Seattle Times:

Redhook Ale Brewery shareholders blessed the company's merger with Widmer Brothers Brewing, of Portland, and the deal is expected to close next Monday or Tuesday. "This is a smokin' good deal," co-founder and Chief Executive Paul Shipman told a few dozen shareholders at its annual meeting in Woodinville. The deal has taken longer than expected to pull together, he said, partly because the companies discussed various ways to structure the merger. They settled on a 50/50 division of ownership between the companies' existing shareholders. That required Redhook shareholders to approve the issuance of about 8.4 million shares, worth $36 million, to be given to Widmer's roughly 30 shareholders. More than 98 percent of Redhook's voting shareholders approved the issuance. The new company will be called Craft Brewers Alliance and trade under Redhook's ticker symbol, HOOK.

And this from Duvel & Liefmans:

On 24 June 2008, Duvel Moortgat nv reached an agreement with the receivers of Brouwerij Liefmans nv.
On the basis of this agreement, Duvel Moortgat nv acquires a large portion of the assets of the bankrupt companies, including the complete machinery, all the brands and recipes.
Earlier, Duvel Moortgat nv had already made a binding offer on the real estate of Brouwerij Liefmans nv in Ouderaarde. The receivers have granted Duvel Moortgat nv a right of use until the completion of some procedural aspects of the sale of this site.
In the first phase, Duvel Moortgat nv will concentrate primarily on the brown ales and fruit beers of the brand Liefmans brewed in Ouderaarde. This way, Duvel Moortgat nv can complete its existing product portfolio with a fine, authentic and traditional beer brand, in a market segment in which it was not active until now.
When Duvel Moortgat nv acquires the site in Ouderaarde, the company will make the necessary investiments to revalue the production site and give visitors a hearty welcome.
The price of the total transaction, including the real estate in Ouderaarde, amounts to 4.5 million Euro.

mybeerbuzz Left Coast Report - Beer Lists

23 June 2008

I thought it would be interesting for everyone to see some west coast beer lists, so I scanned in the Stone draft & bottle list as well as the Real Ale festival beer & VIP beer lists. Be sure to check out the bottle/draft pricing and be sure to read the last two columns of the Real Ale festival lists.

mybeerbuzz Left Coast Report - Photos

21 June 2008

I just thought I'd follow up with a few photos. First we have the Green Flash vehicle. This panel van is immaculate. Even the engine has custom green GFB heads and bottle cap spark caps.



Next is the bathroom @ Stone Brewing. This is all real stone and the strips you see are barley & hops, embedded in stainless steel panels. Very cool.

mybeerbuzz Left Coast Report - Port Brewing Real Ale Festival

20 June 2008

The highlight of my west coast beer wandering was the Port Brewing Real Ale Festival. So what is a Real Ale festival you ask....well it's very simple (and very yummy). "Real Ale" includes cask conditioned hand pumped beers and bottle conditioned beers ONLY.

Before we go any further, click on the first photo above....after you're done, drooling, wetting your pants and passing out, I'll explain....OK are you done? OK go ahead...click on it and look again...I'll wait....

You are looking at a rack of hand-pumps. That line continues beyond what you can see in the photo and around the corner and back up another wall. You are looking at 56 individual hand-pumps!

You're going to need time to stop hyper-ventilating so I'll start slow. Your admission gets you a pint glass (yes a pint glass) with a tiny little line at the bottom that says 4oz. Get a good look at that 4oz line, because you'll never see it again. These guys are "generous". So what about the beers you say....well rather than list all 56 pumps I'll list a few and let you scour the signs in the 2nd photo. Highlights: Alpine Brewing Pure Hoppiness (8% ABV), Avery Brewing Uber Schwein (9.2% ABV), Backstreet Brewery Molly's Request Oak Aged Baltic Porter (9% ABV), Green Flash Grand Cru (9% ABV), Hollister Brewing Bowling & Beyond (8.5% ABV), Lagunitas Hop Stoopid (9.5% ABV), Moylans Hopsickle Imperial IPA (9.2% ABV), Port Brewing Doheny Double IPA (9.1% ABV), Port Brewing Old Viscosity (10.5% ABV), Speakeasy Old Godfather (10% ABV), Stone Imperial Russian Stout (10.2% ABV), Stone Vertical 7 (8.4% ABV), Stone Belgian Chocolate Stout (9.3% ABV), Alesmith Double Coffee Speedway Stout (12%), Lost Abbey Angel's Share (12.5% ABV) and Firestone Walker Brewing Parabola (which we named Paralysis)---13%ABV!

Have I said enough? Well I guess I should mention the VIP pass that also got us samples of 21 additional bottle conditioned beers like t'SMisje Guido (with mustard seeds), Daleside Monkey Wrench, De Proef Signature Ale, Fullers Vintage Ale 2007, Lost Abbey Isabella Proximus, Bink Tripel, Alvinne Podge Imperial Stout, Unibroue 15th Anniversary and Achilles Serafijn Celtic Angel.

I'll never be able to describe what an amazing collection of beers this was.....so I'll just say two things....1) WOW! and 2) This is an ANNUAL festival....anyone interested?

Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 - Labatts Honey Lager

I had a feeling we were on a slightly downhill slide when today's show started with a close-up (really close-up) of Chip's St. Obnoxious shirt (available in XXXL and XXXXXL only!) See if you can spot Chip in the photo. From there we continued the roll downhill when the boys "twisted off" the cap of the beer of the week. This weeks beer was Labatt's Honey Lager. My cringing continued when the boys (and Ruthie) called it a "lighter" Dogfish Head Midas Touch....Ouch!

OK so maybe I'm not crazy about Labatt's in general, and maybe I really like DFH beers, and yes I understand highlighting different beers (craft or macro) is a good thing...but in the words of the late Senator Llyod Bensten...I know Midas Touch, I've tasted many Midas Touch...and this is NO Midas Touch.

Anyway, enough ranting for now. I loved two quotes today and it was hard to pick a favorite. It would have been easier to go for the night before the start of summer being "Summer Eve", but my real favorite had to be that the macro breweries are "starting to realize people are starting to like a little flavor in their beer."

Thanks guys...always funny.....Cheers!

mybeerbuzz Left Coast Report - Stone Brewing Part 2

18 June 2008

After posting about Stone Brewing, I realized that I talked mostly beers, so now lets talk about the facility. This place is amazing! I'll start with my only complaint....guys....you need signs. Short of recognizing that the building has a lot of "Stone-work" on the exterior, it's pretty much a guess until you open the door that you're at Stone Brewing. Step in the door and you're in the gift shop, shirts, Stone-swag, bottles and an impressive tour-tasting station and growler refill area (see photo 1).

As you progress out of the gift-shop, you open into a massive warehouse sized bar and restaurant. The main wall features a floor-to-ceiling stone relief sculpture of the Stone logo, the next wall opens to a huge outdoor bistro & gardens (with an outdoor bar). Ahead is a huge upper level party room with outdoor deck, a huge indoor main bar and finally to the left, the brewery (see photo 2).This place is like nothing I've ever seen in a micro-brewery facility. It's huge, the gardens are huge and the setup is incredible. Indoor waterfalls, 35-foot tall windows, huge indoor plants, massive chunky wooden bars & tables and you guessed it....Stone everywhere. Not just the use of Stone, but the Stone logo is subtle, but everywhere...laser cut lanterns, relief sculptures....it's all very cool.

I'll end the review with the bathroom. The walls feature stainless steel strips surrounded by tiny black stones potruding out of the walls..but the best part is the stainless steel strips have barley & hops somehow embedded in them. If you get a chance, and you can find it, DO GO TO Stone Brewery. I'll follow with more pictures later...

mybeerbuzz Beer Find of the Week

17 June 2008

This weeks beer find comes to us from Sabatini's. Don't wait....get down to get a bottle before it's gone. Avery 15! This is Avery's farmhouse ale brewed with black mission figs, hibiscus flowers and white pepper and fermented with brettanomyces yeast. For those that have had a Bret-based beer, the taste can be a little "different" to say the least. Cheers!

mybeerbuzz Left Coast Report - Stone Brewing

16 June 2008

OK I'll start by apologizing up front that this may turn from a beer report to an architecture report. Stone Brewery is amazing! What an incredible building and gardens...but I digress....the beer...

Stone features not only their own beers on draft, but about 25 other beers AND a mile-long bottled beer list. Check out the photo and begin to drool....these are ALL Stone beers on tap, lined up for a photo...but more importantly a tasting. You'll also note in the background the 36-tap handles they have at the bar.

We tipped everything from their mild-malty Levitation Ale to their killer Old Guardian Barleywine and the very yummy 7-7-07 Vertical, which I've never had on draft. Of course Vertical 7 on draft was even better than the bottles I've had previously. As far as Stone beers on draft, they had Pale Ale, Smoked Porter, IPA, Arrogant Bastard, Oaked Arrogant Bastard, Ruination, Levitation. Russian Imperial Stout, Vertical 7, Old Guardian and Smoked Porter w/Chipolte Peppers. As far as guest beers on tap they had some great ones like Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere, Allagash Black, Port Shark Attack, Russian River Blind Pig (unfortunately my nickname on the trip), and even Saison Dupont....and YES I saved the beer menu.

Surprisingly (or maybe not) Stone Brewing (as well as much of SoCal) had a lot of Victory Brewing beers including Hop Wallop. As far as bottles the list was huge. East coast, west coast, Belgium and everything in between. Some highlights here (beyond how cool the bottle display in the building was)...Allagash Dubbel Reserve, AleSmith Decadence, Blaugies La Moneuse Saison, Cantillon Classic Gueze, De Prof Flemish Primitive, Glazen Toren Saison dErpe Mere, Wandering Aengus Ciinderworks, Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noir...I could go on forever. The other cool bottle we "noted" (code word for drank) was Stone 2007 Old Guardian Barleywine. All good stuff....and have I mentioned how cool the building was?

mybeerbuzz Left Coast Report - Rituals

We're back on the green-ground of the east coast. Given the busy pace of our trip, the total quantity of beer consumed, and the jet lag generated by 13 hours of flying, I'll just start with a teaser.

One of my favorite stops on our wild west beer tour was a little place called Rituals Tavern. Rituals is in the North Park area of San Diego and was quite a pleasant surprise. The owner (who was nice enough to stop and say hi) is a lover of great food & wine, but also a lover of fine beers, and his tavern features some great examples of all of the above.

I'll skip the food & wine part and get to the beers, except to say you HAVE to love a place that is into the details enough to make their own ketchup. They had 8 handles, including a hand pump, I asked the bartender and apparently hand pumps are only slightly more common on the west coast than in our area. The night we were there, they had a maibock on so I didn't sample the cask, but I did manage to find some great draft beer and very cool bottled beer. My favorite feature was that Rituals features mostly local beers. Those that know me know I constantly encourage drinking locally, and Rituals pulls that off. The tap list included locals like Mission, Alesmith, Port Brewing, Green Flash and Stone. The bottle list also included many locals, but also offered some great Belgian choices.

All in all a very cool place to tip a pint, and a must-do if you hit the SoCal area. Thanks Michael....

Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 - DFH Midas Touch

I was out of town for this weeks show, and oddly enough 106.9 FM seems to be a completely different radio station on the west coast. Perhaps Rock 107 needs a bigger antenna....guys please add that to the budget with the new web cam. And speaking of web cam....we have a different angle on the boys and Chip is now silhouetted by the control room so we CAN actually see Chip. Perhaps my blurry-Chip rants have had some impact (See photo)?

This week's beer is Dogfish Head Midas Touch. This beer is a honey meade-based beer based on ancient recipes and is a very tasty, albeit sweet wine brew. Given the upcoming release DFH Theobroma, it was particularly interesting to hear the guys down some Midas Touch.

As far as this week's quote, I have to go for a non-beer quote. Webster's quote of saying, "his pool wasn't open because the water's so cold the salmon were still spawning," was classic.

Thanks guys....always entertaining....Cheers!

11 June 2008

This week mybeerbuzz.com (and Mrs. mybeerbuzz) will be hitting the left coast. I apologize in advance if some of the lists may be a little out of date for a few days, but my journalistic (and beer drinking) obligations are calling me. We'll be visiting Stone Brewery, Green Flash and the Pizza Port hand-pump festival among others. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. Stay tuned for details to follow....

Sad Day for the Local Beer Scene...

09 June 2008

I am sad to report that Jay Misson, head brewer for Triumph Brewing died suddenly today. Jay has a rich brewing history in the Pennsylvania/New Jersey area and his brewing skills go way back so some of the very early craft brews in our area. I'll leave the further story to Lew Bryson (Click HERE), but years ago I remember running into Jay in New Hope at Triumph Brewing. He sat quietly at the bar near us as we talked about beers to the bartender. Finally he introduced himself and was kind (and excited) enough to pull a theif of a new Rye Ale so my wife and I could have a taste. Great beers and great guy....

And the macros get even bigger...

08 June 2008

As we watch InBev chase after AB, word comes that anti-trust regulators in Washington DC have approved the proposed merger of Miller & Coors. Given that Coors is already owners by Molson, this merger could potentially create a macro-beer industry that really only has two brewery conglomerates. I'm not sure how it will play out, but I smell an even larger opportunity for the micro-breweries across america. Good news for the macro drinkers of the world...now you can go into a bar and order a "beer" without specifying which one and you'll get pretty much the same brew. Bartender, I'll have a MillerCoorsMolson...no wait....maybe an AnheuserInBev...

mybeerbuzz.com - Beer Find

07 June 2008

This weeks mybeerbuzz.com Beer Find is an easy pick and a personal favorite. Not many beers are this yummy, and as if that's not enough....it's on hand pump. OK, enough suspense. This week Beer Find comes to us from Elmer Sudds and it's Rogue Chocolate Stout on hand pump. This beer simply will NOT last long, so do yourself a favor and get down there and try it on hand pump...and while you're there...the hop heads should check out Stone Ruination on tap and Sly Fox Odyssey in bottles.

Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 - Intercourse Bearville Pilsner

06 June 2008

This week’s Chip the beer guy featured a death-defying feat. Not only would drinking a 1960's Gibbons Bock beer be death defying in the 1960's, but 40 years later....Ouch. For this feat of gastronomical bravery, I award the special mybeerbuzz Ick-award to Chip. Double-yuck Chip for drinking a 40-year old flat beer, that was not a great beer even in it's day. Open a 40-years old Westvleteren, and I'm in...but god bless your toilet...a 40 year-old Gibbons...wow.

Today's real beer was Intercourse Bearville Pilsner. Contracted locally through mybeerbuzz member Lion Brewery, this is a light sounding Lager-sytle Pilsner courtesy of Arrow Beverage. I've read some unhappy reviews of this brew, but of course the guys loved it.

With a brewery name like Intercourse, today's favorite quote was like shooting fish in a barrel. I had a few favorites, but my favorite had to be the description of the bottle, "A picture of a farmhouse with two shrubberies from Intercourse."

Since I've been poking fun at the blurry webcam images they publish every week, I thought I'd show you what I mean. Check out the photo above. I've added some map lines to help you make out who everyone is. Perhaps we can all "chip" in (pardon my pun) to buy a better webcam for the guys. Thanks guys...entertaining as always....Cheers!
