The Beerists Craft Beer Podcast

by The Beerists

Every week, John Rubio and his co-hosts, Grant Davis, and Mike Lambert, meet to taste, discuss, and judge five different beers from all over the world. Part beer appreciation, part drunken comedy, it’s the only beer podcast the A.V. Club calls, “consistently illuminating and amusing.”

Mini 346 - Austin Beerworks Pils vs Pils

I forgot that I wanted to release this mini on the main feed so the folks at Austin Beerworks could hear it. Oh, well- better late than never!

Recorded late Sept, 2020

Austin Beerworks recently released a badass mixed 6-pack of Pilsners- half of which are brewed with traditional methods, the other half with modern methods. The trick is, they don't say which is which, and challenge us to guess! It's Pils vs Pils!

461 - Non-Alcoholic Beer Showdown

It's been years since we'd tried any non-alcoholic beers. But it being Dry January, we decided to give 'em a whirl to see if they still suck, or if maybe they've become anything more than porridgey bullcrap water. The results were quite shocking.

460 - 2020 Blind Holiday Spectacular
