Katie and Kelsey are back to fusion dance to become Kasey and drink stouts. Steve and Adam are also present to drink stouts. They drink stouts. Specifically a horizontal of stouts from Hi-Wire Brewing in Asheville, NC. They talk about a man registering beer as a support animal, Australia's Resilience IPA fund, and Boston's Blind Beer Tasting which Steve pushes for one in Pittsburgh. Then they talk about beer variants they wish existed and what variants of non-beer stuff they wish existed. Finally, they rip off another TV show and play a game of Word.

We finally put out an actual new episode in 2020, and we pull the South Park Terrance & Philip switch. Katie joins Adam and Steve to try the alternatives to drinking beer. This includes non-alcoholic beer, seltzer and trying beer to make them just quit drinking altogether. They talk about Enix closing, Arsenal opening, Pabst going nautical, and Australia getting saved by sea. Then they try to predict the Super B*wl commercials of 2020, because the popularity of seltzer dictates ad spend. Finally, it's a game of The Alternative is Wrong, a Price I$ Right ripoff to learn about the price and calorie count of CBD water, THC drinks and other alcoholic drinks.

It's the final collabo episode of the holiday season featuring Hop Nation USA's Adam and Steve, First Sip Brew Box's Dennis, and Fueled By Hops' Ryan. This episode they all reminisce about the good parts of 2019, because too many people focus on the negatives. Plus, there's a lot of talk about movies, pooping etiquette, being a chef, nuggies, hoagies and more.
Saucy Brew Works Three Hos Christmas Ale
Steve and Adam continue their holiday block of programming with Dennis from First Sip Brew Box and Ryan from Fueled by Hops. This week they take a look back at the year in beer for 2019. The best beers, the best new breweries, and what they're looking forward to in 2020. They also look back at the worst of it all. Sit back and nurse your hangover and get prepped for New Year's with Fueled by Hops Nation USA.
Great Lakes Christmas Ale
It's first of three holiday episodes featuring Adam, Steve, First Sip Brew Box's Dennis and Fueled by Hops' Ryan. This episode we give Ryan the chance to tell the FBH story. We talk about the small beginnings of friends in a Facebook group to what's now grown into a highly engaged community, podcast, and soon beerfest. We get the low down on the first Fueled by Hops Beerfest and how Billy Mays III, son of the king of the pitch is involved and how they're both bringing clean laundry to the needy through The Laundry Project.
Fat Head's Holly Jolly Christmas Ale
Katie has returned from travels down south and has brought beers from the 13th colony, Georgia. Steve and Adam are here for it. First though, they talk about Anderson Valley's new owners, the double death of 3.2; the controversy of New Belgium, Kirin, and genocide, and reindeer boning. Then it's the history of beer in Georgia, including defeating dysentery and why it was one of the worst states for craft beer until 2017. Finally, Katie gets to participate in her first Beerify It! segment (we think) and we try to create the most perfect Georgia beer. Waffle House is involved. This week's title reference is to Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, probably one of the best LucasArts adventure games of the 90s. It featured voice acting, combat and puzzles, multiple endings and more. The game was better than Crystal Skull.

It's Adam and Steve drinking beer from Foothills Brewing out of Winston-Salem, NC. They talk about Boulder getting saved, Ballast Point getting sold, and Wawa getting more beer. They answer questions from internet like, "what to get your stout loving girlfriend for Christmas?" and, "what do you research more before purchase cars, tech or beer?" Finally they pitch their new events planning of Christmas themed beer festivals centered around A Christmas Story and Die Hard. Don't argue about Die Hard being a Christmas movie or not, because this is a beer podcast. There's so much irreverence in style and definition in beer, but you can't budge on the definition of a Christmas movie? Pssh.

It's the leftovers from episodes deemed not good enough for the regular show and now you get to consume them. These loosely related set of cobbled together clips feature Abjuration Brewing, Couch Brewery, Jason Cercone from Breaking Brews, plus guest hosts Katie, Kelsey, and Dennis from Firstsipbrewbox.com
Also there's some real short form review for garbage Steve puts in his body.
Come back next week for a real episode.
Steve and Adam are back in the Parkway Theater with the brewers from Abjuration Brewing in McKees Rocks. It's a time for celebration! Not only are we on the cusp of the holidays, but it's the 2nd Anniversary of Abjuration. We talk about their wild second year with expansion through Honeycomb, venturing into new styles and new yeasts. Plus perfecting your skill tree without min-maxing, science stuff, hybrid hops and we find out what they're thankful full. Lastly, we play a game of Would You Rather? with important questions like, "Would you rather all your beers smell like farts or make everyone rate your farts like Untappd?"

It's a full on Adam episode. He finally gets to go deep on his love for cars in honor of the Ford vs Ferrari movie with Christian Bale and Matt Damon...plus I guess NASCAR and NHRA are doing a thing too. Anyway Steve, First Sip Brew Box's Dennis and Tap That Pittsburgh's Bryan are along for the ride. Get it? First lap, they talk about Ab-Inbev buys Craft Brew Alliance, Tactical Ops tells some truth, and Amstel Light is irrelevant. Then Adam gets into the history of the 1966 Le Mans, the basis for the movie, the cars Shelby made to help Henry Ford II take on Enzo Ferrari. Finally, they get into a quiz that shows how truly little any of them know about cars.
