Episode 11: Pale Moon Ales

IMG<em>20130612</em>233202This is the eleventh episode of the Blind Tiger Podcast, recorded on September 5th, 2013.    In this episode’s beer versus beer we compare two fantastic examples of the Pale Ale.  Rob selected a fine west coast example to pit in combat against Mike’s local east coast offering.  Is this too akin to a gansta-rap battle?  Will there be proverbial drive-bys?  Listen to find out.

This episode we start out with the following question to get our panel chatting.  The question is: “If you were gain a super power only while drunk, what power would you want and why would you want it?”

In this episode we also take a look at the “wildest’ beer ingredients to be added to a beer.  Mike walks us through the process of adding a fruit to your home-brew to add a delicious taste of fruit flavor.
