Season 4, Episode 4 – This week on the show, ten tasty brews from San Luis Obispo’s Tap It Brewing Co..
We’re just going to put this out there, right up front: Tap It Brewing Co. out of San Luis Obispo, California, is brewing some really clean, tasty brews that are seemingly perfect to the beer styles they represent. No joke.
The beers this week were generously provided by the fine folks at Tap It Brewing Co.. They even sent a bottle of IPA overnight to ensure we got it within three days of bottling. The variety of beers they sent us pretty much cover most of the popular styles of beer that any solid American craft brewery would brew. Their IPA even won a gold medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival. The IPA category at GABF is the biggest and probably toughest category to win a medal in, so it’s speaks of Tap It’s quality quite a bit. Spoiler: The IPA is great.
Speaking of IPA, we all know that IPA is a style that is best enjoyed fresh. On the show, we mentioned that the bottles lacked bottling dates. Turns out, we didn’t look hard enough on the bottle, as we were informed by Tap It after the show that they do bottle date their 22 ounce bottles and 6 packs. The IPA they sent was about six weeks old at the time of recording, and while it wasn’t day-one-dankness fresh, it was still awesome.
It should also be noted that Tap It Brewing also makes some kick-ass barrel-aged and coffee beers, which we also feature on the show this week. It’s always fun to discover delicious beer from breweries that for some reason have flown under our radar. Tap It Brewing Co. is definitely a brewery to keep your eye on.
Thanks once again to Tap It Brewing Co. for sending the beers!
