Season 4, Episode 12 – This week on the show, ch-ch-ch-cherry beers! Freak out with your Kriek out…
This week on the show, we have a plethora of potentially pink beer, so much so that we may need a paddle to get out of this cherry kriek we’ve found ourselves in. If only we had a corner to drink them all in… Luckily, we are joined again by Natalie DeNicholas, who coincidentally is the host of our new YouTube show called, Pink Beer Corner! It’s all coming up pink, isn’t it?
Matt was inspired to bring all the cherry things for this week’s show based off of a homebrew he made that in the end, he didn’t think turned out so well. In an effort to save a beer that was destined to inevitably end up in a dump bucket shared between five homebrewers on this podcast, he added bugs (bacteria bugs, that is) and cherries. Turns out, he still wasn’t a fan (and neither were the rest of us). Swiftly moving on, we ventured to find beers that didn’t have that well-known cough syrup flavor that so many people notice with cherry beers.
As per usual, our session concludes with us in a hot mess of singing, impersonations, waxing poetic about nonsense, and having no clear winner on which cherry beer rainiers supreme. Get it? It’s a cherry joke.
BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
