The Beer Report show

The Beer Report

Summary: Welcome to the Beer Report! If you are looking for another NPR style beer tasting show... You are probably going to be disappointed. Who are we kidding? There are about 20 podcasts that sniff, swallow, twaddle and judge beer like fine wine. We are not one of those! We do drink a lot of good beer. We even talk about it... Sometimes we even know what we are talking about! On a real good show, we drink some shit beer! The Beer Report is about "confrontation" as co-host CHUD would say... The beer is the catalyst to everything else that is created for the show. Comedy, vulgarity, offensive points of view abound ahead! Listen at your own risk!

PLEASE GOD…  Isn’t there anyone else in Peoria Beercasting to fill the void???  Kinda shocking that there is not!  There seems to be a beer podcast in every town over 30,000 people! Beers purchased at some cool co-op in Vermont.  Thanks to the “dude” for help grabbing some cool beer!

Bianca is back!  Adopt A Podcast dot Org is really helping this show come along!!! We had picked a bottle of Red Hot Mama last winter down in Florida at Total Wine in Fort Myers Florida.  For those of you who don’t remember…  It was skunked!  So much so that we threw out a tweet stating that fact.  Well, Sweetwater was not going to let that stand…  They quickly contacted us and asked to get a new bottle out ASAP.  Wish we could say we got a new show out that fast! Finally, we had the opportunity to taste this one on air…  It was worth a second try!  Great beer with a much heavier feel than we expected along with nice tart hops.
