Late last night the Friday Beerbuzz changed a little. Somehow when the Vice-President of the United States is schedule to appear, and scheduled right before the Friday Beerbuzz….things change. In the end it was a really exciting and fun change, and congratulations to Nancy, John and WILK for landing the interview.
There was a noticeable difference in our second ever live beer radio show today. Most noticeable for me was the fact that I was actually able to breath during the show, (including exhaling). In week one there were a lot of shaky hands (mine) and I’m not sure if I even remembered to breath. Fortunately for me I now actually seem to enjoy the fine-line between excitement and terror.
It’s a ton of fun chatting about beer with beer lovers and future beer lovers, and so easy to get lost in great conversations over a great beer…and today was no exception. In the run up to our first show, Joe Snedeker worried out loud that Nancy may “girl up” our “manly beer show.” After speaking to Mrs Beerbuzz about this, she encouraged me to get John, Joe Thomas and even Joe Snedeker to embrace their feminine side…so we did. I brought a special “Nancy beer” and the very “doily” that Snedeker was concerned about….but don’t get too lost in the fun. The Peche Lambic Nancy tasted today is a really good beer that I’ve never seen anyone dislike….so be sure to try it out. Most exciting for me is perhaps that Nancy actually liked the Bell’s Two-Hearted IPA even better.
After tasting the Peche Lambic we moved on to the Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale. Coming to us from the manly state of Michigan, Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale has not only been a favorite beverage of mine, but also a gateway IPA for many hop lovers. Two-Hearted Ale is a really nice way to introduce people to a hoppier beer style like an IPA without knocking their socks off. Try it for yourself, especially if you don’t traditionally like a hoppy beer and let me know what you think. IPA’s aren't for everyone, but this is an IPA that may surprise you.
As always a big thank you to John, Nancy, Joe, Sue, Bosco, Joe Biden and everyone at WILK for making this another fun experience….and as always we encourage YOU to join in.
