128-Trappist Update?

Eighty two episodes ago we sat down for a session that has become one of our favorite recordings to date. We sampled all the Trappist beers there were to offer. Since then several breweries have been added to the list. We couldn’t resist the urge to sample the newest monks on the block. Of course we didn’t want to sample them alone. We just had to have some of our network hosts along for the ride.

124-Malort?

What do you do when you hear about a alcohol that is described as tasting like a burnt condom filled with gasoline? You find the closest place they sell it and pick some up. Then you go share it with your friends. We had such and adventure just searching for this elusive Chicagoan drink that we couldn’t wait to try it. This liquor is so packed with flavor we had to have two guests to contain it.

109-Sake?

Sake or sometimes known as rice wine is an ancient and reviled beverage in several Asian cultures. Although more akin to beer in the brewing process, when it comes to flavor it is closer to wine. It can be drank at a variety of temperatures, as well as in cocktails. Through researching and recording this episode Chris and Joe realized that Sake is wholly its own unique alcohol.
