This is the fourth episode of the Blind Tiger Podcast, recorded on May 30th, 2013. In this episode Mike and I celebrate Philly Beer Week 2013 with Philadelphia themed beer versus beer. Jesse decides which of Mike and my selections is the superior Philadelphia offering; Flying Fish Exit 16 Double IPA or Yards Brawler.
Mike, Jesse, and myself get a hands on tasting with Budweiser’s most popular new offerings their Lime-a-Rita and Straw-Ber-Rita products. Listen in as we put our teeth and taste buds on the line and sample these two new sickly sweet malt beverages.
We also take a deep look into whether the craft brewers obsession with hops is killing the industry in point/counterpoint.
We also answer listener Becky’s question about shipping beer with in the United States and beyond. It is a trickier subject than you might think.

I’m in a bit of a pickle. It’s my lovely father’s birthday and for years now I wanted to buy him a selection of nice craft beer without spending a butt-load of money (usually due to shipping). How can I overcome this problem? Are there any PA-based companies that will allow online purchase and ship locally?
Due distance, I cannot physically shop and drop off my wonderful selection, nor have I tasted any PA craft beer in a while: I need some good recommendations. He would like some: interesting IPAs, ales (he loved his UK ales while he was here), and perhaps some dark lagers. No stouts or porters (I don’t think).
Would welcome any advice — preferably sooner than later.
Many thanks and cheers,
PS: If you’re ever in the UK, I can recommend some excellent pubs and real ales — come over and do a podcast!
