TTP Episode 48 – Scotch Ale Tasting

The Tap Takeover Podcast Crew get together for another special tasting episode. Just in time for the 2018 release of Central Waters’ Barrel-Aged Scotch Ale, we’ll be tasting four Scotch Ales aged in different barrels. This episode has a local vibe to it as we are trying all Wisconsin beers! We start the journey with Raised Grain’s Batch 200 – their Six Stone Scotch Ale aged in scotch whiskey barrels for 6 months. We then do a side-by-side of the 2017 and 2018 Lord Lyon from Good City Brewing – Scotch Ales aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels. We finish it off with Central Waters’ 2017 Scotch Ale, this one is aged in Bourbon Barrels. Grab yourself a Wee Heavy and see if you agree with the guys! Cheers!

TTP Episode 47 – Only Child

We’ve taken the Tap Takeover Podcast on the road again this week for a little beer run down to visit Only Child Brewing in Gurnee, IL. We sit down with brewery-founder Ben and taproom-manager Charlotte as they lead us through a live tasting of their many delicious beers. In today’s episode we’ll be discussing Only Child’s naming origins, both the name of the brewery and the fun names for the beers themselves, the brewery’s emphasis on crisp, clean approachable ales and lagers, and we’ve even got some classic “Dad jokes” in store. Speaking of which…grab a pint of Dad Jokes American IPA and join us for the fun! Cheers!
