Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 – Breaker Brewing Co Pot Belly Pumpkin

BreakerBrewingC On today’s show we discussed the concept of beer & food pairing …matching interesting beers with foods that compliment them, or vice versa ;).  I’ll admit this is a concept I’ve just started to become interested in and other than Nachos, Pizza and cheesy-fries; I’ve done little experimentation.  The guys paired pasta and Vodka Sauce with a German Blonde Bock that Chip brought home in the patented (or yet to be patented) beer suitcase.  Now I’ll admit I wouldn’t have jumped in with a Italian sauce and German light Bock beer, but again what do I know.  For anyone interested there has been some discussion of a beer & food group locally…stay tuned for details.

So on to the show….It’s always nice to hear Mark & Chris on the air and today was no exception.  Today the show featured their Pot Belly Pumpkin Ale (available at Kelsey’s in Ashley).  I hope to be tasting this beer tonight actually at Elmer Sudds, but it sounded good.  The guys also discussed the reformulated I Love PA (another beer I hop to be trying this evening), the upcoming holiday Belsnickler Ale, and their work on the new 16-ton Imperial IPA to be released late winter/early spring.  Turns out there are two versions of the Belsnickler Belgian-ish ale, one darker than the other.  I’m not sure if they will each be bottled or if the guys intend to blend them before bottling.  Either way it sounds like we’re in for an interesting 8% ABV + holiday warmer and an exciting Imperial IPA in the spring.

Cheers Guys…..great show….and be sure to click on the photo.
