Special Episode 1: JoBoy's Collaboration Brewday

There is just too much beer in the world to only taste twice a month. In the spirit of more is better the Blind Tiger podcast team has decided to add samplesodes to the podcast lineup. These mini-episodes will feature only tastings of hopefully unique or exotic beer, often on location to keep your Blind Tiger intake at a more regular interval.

This week's episode is a super special samplesode, the first of its kind. On June 5th, Jesse and I headed up to JoBoy's Brewing Company to spend time with them as they brewed their special Fourth of July Celebration Collaboration.

This smoked IPA was the brainchild of the JoBoy's, DuClaw, and Heavy Seas breweries. A beer designed to be delicious, unique, and pair well with the Independence Day BBQ served on JoBoys.

I managed to sit down with interviews with ALL the brewers for quick interviews while the beer was brewing to talk about how the collaboration came to be, how the brewers all knew each other, and what their backstories were.

It was an amazing day while four friends spent time brewing a very interesting beer. We managed to get a taste of their experimental batch and while I was skeptical of a smoked IPA I was really impressed by how good it was. Their Smokin' Three Way IPA will pair perfectly with their pork BBQ.

It is like they knew what they were doing or something.

The beer will ONLY be available at JoBoy's brewpub on tap so drop what your doing and head there for a pint.
