Four Brewers | Plan Bee, Newburgh, Carton, and Refuge.
Season 3, Episode 19 – This week we’re drinking some brews form New York and New Jersey and a new Grapefruit IPA from our friends at Refuge Brewery in Temecula, California. Natalie DeNicholas and John Ryti are also back with us.
Four Brewers has the best listeners. It’s true. Just putting that out there. I say that because four of the five beers we’re drinking on the show this week were graciously provided by Four Brewers listener Robert Perry. Getting east coast beers is tough for us, but fans like Robert have been stepping up lately and sending us some killer stuff.
The first two beers are from New Jersey’s Carton Brewing Company. Unbeknown to us, Carton is actually a great get for us here on the west coast, and the two IPAs we got from Robery were fresh AF. That’s how you do it folks: ship ’em fast and fresh!
Next up are two beers, both from two breweries that we had no idea even existed, Plan Bee Farm Brewery and Newburgh Brewing Co. The two beers are what they call a “100% NY Sour Ale” and are made with locally sourced ingredients from around the state of New York. Both beers are the exact same recipe, but each was fermented with two different yeast strains–one from Plan Bee and one from Newburgh. These beers were really great. Folks in NY/NJ are lucky to be able to get this magical juice…
We wrap up the show with a new beer from a local favorite of ours, Refuge Brewery out of Temecula, CA. Temecula’s beer scene has really been blowing up lately, and Refuge was there at the beginning of the boom. Their Blood Orange Wit is well known in these parts, and since they nailed the fruited witbier category, they decided to try their hand at an IPA with grapefruit.
Much thanks again to Robert Perry for the beers…Hail Satan. 😉
BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
