Drinking Biddies

Do you want to like craft beer but don't know where to start? Do you feel like having a favorite Doppelbock will earn you street cred? (Wait. What's Doppelbock, again?) Drinking Biddies Keryl Brown and Jamie Tunkel will always drink a bottle on air, review it, tell stories, and discover a few things about beer along the way. They'll sometimes have guests and sometimes be antisocial. They're just two girls on a journey. A beer journey. Disclaimer: If you're looking for boring, informational lectures about beer, move along. You won't find that here.

 “It looks like I’m about to drink the blood of my enemies.”

BIDDIES! We are so thrilled to have Ethan Siegler as our guest this week. This episode is long, but totally worth it. Ethan has an incredible knowledge of beer, and he explains many concepts in a way that is fun and easy to understand. We met Ethan when he interviewed us for his graduate thesis project in which he researched beer consumers. That’s right! BEER CONSUMERS! Like us! And you! He shares some of his findings on this episode, but if you want to get in touch with him or learn more, you can check out his LinkedIn here:

“It’s called California Lager. It’s basically LOCATION BEER.”

“I moderately enjoyed that first sip.”

“When you go to a bbq, you just want to attend. I want to make a mark.”

 

*HOMEBREW ALERT*:

In addition to Anchor California Lager, this episode also features TWO homebrews (brewed by guest August Comstock). We drink his Northeast IPA and his Mango Berliner Weisse. They are utterly amazing.

“Shit, dude. We made beer!” – Keryl

“I thought this was going to be a glass of mold.” – Jamie

The Biddies celebrate THREE YEARS of podcasting with their VERY FIRST HOME BREW -- an American Amber Ale -- that exceeds their expectations. 

Thank you so much for joining us on our beer journey! Check out our Instagram (@drinkingbiddiespodcast) or Facebook page to see the “labels” we designed for our brew.

Hoppy Hanukkah! Beery Christmas! What beer pun can we make about Kwanza?! FRIENDS, BIDDIES, COUNTRYMEN... it's been a year. A year for thinking, a year for drinking, a year for more drinking.

On this episode, we send 2017 out with a BANG* (*a beer)! Actually, TWO beers. Guest Joey LePage stops by the studio to bid the year adieu. We review North Coast Brewing Cranberry-Quince Berliner Weisse, which tastes SUSPICIOUSLY like a cider (hmmmm, North Coast, want to fess up to something?) and Joey brings us a BONUS BEER: Mortal Kombat X Scorpion Imperial Stout. 

The only thing more shocking than the fact that Mortal Kombat has BEERS is that this one is actually really, really good.

Biddies - it's been an honor, a pleasure, and a blast! Wow that year went fast! Here we are at last! We will be back in the new year with another full glass! (That last one was a stretch).

Be safe, be well, and as always, thanks for drinking! 

XOXO THE BIDDIES

The Biddies FINALLY review a Doppelbock with guest Gideon Welles. Gideon joins them all the way from Taiwan (!!) and he brought a bonus beer (Taiwan beer). SUPER FUN FACT - Gideon (guest Biddie) and Keryl (resident Biddie) MADE A MOVIE. It's called AT ROAD'S END and you can learn more about it/check out the campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/at-road-s-end-a-taiwanese-western-film-environment#/
