Season 3, Episode 21 – This week on the show, 4B listener and super-fan, Mike Kirshner, is at it once again and sent us some really tasty brew from Woodstock, Georgia.
Before we start the show this week, it should be noted that Matt wasn’t able to make it to Session 35 of Four Brewers due to personal affairs, and thus will not be on this episode or the next two. See you at Session 36, Matt!
We begin by reading our (long overdue) thank you list of Four Brewers’ supporters and podcast reviewers on iTunes. We haven’t read thank-yous since November of 2015, so if you’ve left a review or supported the show since then, you’ll hear your name on this episode!
Today, we’re drinking beers from Woodstock, Georgia’s Reformation Brewery. Trends in the craft beer scene over the last decade or so have been what could mildly be described as “experimental” by many, many breweries. On one hand, that’s what craft beer is—innovation and experimentation. On the other hand, things can get out of control when it comes to adding ingredients to beer. Reformation’s stance is to make quality, classic beer styles, while at the same time throwing their own spin on it. It’s certainly a noble approach to beer. (Tap’s Fish House, anyone? They’re winning medals left and right…)
Mike sent us four Reformation beers: Union, Cadence, Atlas, and Stark. These beers basically cover the spectrum of classic craft beer, from Belgian witbier to Porter. These beers were pretty fantastic, overall.
Big thanks to Mike for once again hooking us up with some great east coast brew!
