We’ve got a real special episode this week. Aadil is on the tail-end of his trip in Canada, and met up with one of the brewers over at Wild Rose Brewery in Calgary, Mark Kerrigan.
We start out with the usual challenge of gaming/life balance, then Mark’s partialness to all things Bethesda as well as our console histories and LAN cafes and parties.
We touch on the growing craft brew-scene in and around Calgary, and the competing technologies used for draft(ish) quality brews in your fridge. Mark also shares his origin stories of both games, the brewing industry and beer in general. The craft brew revolution and what an amazing time it is to like craft beer. We touch on Seasonal and one-off offerings and the ‘craft’ trend of newer breweries moving on with little stability of selection.
We also commiserate on the terribleness of ‘pumpkin’ spices amongst all kinds of other things.
We started with two experimental brews ‘Smoked Dunkel’ and the ‘Smoked Porter’. We moved on to the ‘Cowbell’ Kettle Sour Wit followed by the ‘Ponderosa’ Gose.
