So back in November, Brewmaster Sam Corbeil reached out to us for a collab brew. Because he knows us so well, he suggested an ~8% hazy IIPA brewed with all Australian hops. We couldn't say "HELL YES!" fast enough.
Twenty seventeen has been very good to us, and we're beyond grateful. We want to thank all our followers, subscribers, brewery friends, readers, viewers and listeners for all the support, love, kind words, not so kind words, shares, high fives, beers, hugs and sense of community. We love and appreciate you all and we're excited AF about what 2018 holds for all of us.
About a year ago (as of this writing, November 2017), we decided that we needed to add additional video content. At the time, we’d been doing the podcast every other week for about 18 months and only added a video component in February 2016. We realized that we should fill in the off Wednesdays with some other video content, so we came up with the concept for our #Versus series, where we put two similar beers up against each other to see which one we liked better.
Over the years, Scott and I have done two beercations to Michigan. The first was in 2012 when we were newbies and had no idea what we were doing, but it was really eye-opening and we discovered some fantastic places that changed the way we view beer. The second time was this July when we went down to cover the 20th Anniversary Michigan Summer Beer Festival, and we managed to get in a few podcasts at some incredible places while we were at it.
So here are some of our fave spots from both trips. Get it in ya.
Welcome to the first ever blog on BAOS! About damn time, eh? For those who haven’t been following, we’ve been blogging for a while over at Brew Studs but we figured it was only right we hit y’all with some exclusive content right here in our own web world.
Earlier this year, we did a podcast trip down to Vermont to chat to some amazing breweries and establishments, but over our multiple VT trips, we’ve really discovered a few gems that we just need to share with y’all. Here are 7 of our fave beer-focused spots in Vermont. Get it in ya!
