On a recent trip to Paso Robles, California, I had the good fortune of stopping and picking up (more than) a few beers to pack in my purposely half empty/full suitcase. Wrapping each bottle carefully in paper bags, socks and pant legs, I trusted that the bottles would not break in the hands of a luggage handler at the airport…and I was right! I’ve had success in the past having brought beer back from the Pac NW in the same fashion. Three of the beers I brought back were for this episode – West Coast IPAs. Ethan, myself and our friend Anthony (filling in for a sick Nick) tackle 2 classics and 1 newbie. Speakeasy Big Daddy is first up followed by Figueroa Mountain Hoppy Poppy IPA, finishing out with Ballast Point Sculpin IPA. Hope you enjoy the show!
P.S. Nick is all better now.
