In this episode, we discuss BJCP style category 8B Schwarzbier and discuss a few examples we can get locally. It’s a quaffable dark style with a light enough body and flavor character that it’s easy to drink year around, but always great as we move into the cooler months of the year. We will also hear a little about Stubby’s recent trip to Germany and do some side by side comparisons of German brewed beer bought in Germany with the same beer bought here to see what differences we might notice.
In this episode, as summer starts to come to an end, we’re going to cover a favorite style for the Fall--BJCP cat. 10C Weizenbock! It’s a strong wheat beer that matures quickly and if you brew it now, it’ll be in perfect shape for cooler evenings in October and November. Plus, we get into some discussion of homebrew in pop culture, water treatments, and more!
