Friend of the show Omar donates some more beers for Chris to taste. This time it's from tiny Keweenaw brewing from the backwoods of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
The unquestioned kings of craft beer, Russian Imperial Stouts are hugely flavorful and high in alcohol. No wonder the Russian court ordered these beers by the barrel. In the third part of our series on stouts, Chris and Margaret try three Imperial Stouts with the bona fides to put them at the top of their class. This one goes a little long, but trust us, it's worth it!
Chris tastes the latest offering in the Stone collaboration series, Green Tea IPA. This is a big beer for a big cause. All proceeds of this 9.2% IPA go to Japanese tsunami relief.
Chris and Margaret explore one of the most unique and interesting beer styles in the world, the spontaneously fermented kriek lambics of Belgium
London porter was once the most famous beer style in the world. Despite this, very few historically accurate examples survive today. Chris tastes two attempts to recreate porters as they tasted during the height of their popularity.

Chris is joined again by his wife Margaret in the first of a three part series on summertime beers. Up first, the classic wheat beer of Bavaria - Hefeweizen.
Hops take center stage in the second episode of The Beer Temple podcast! Chris samples two renowned India Pale Ales from California, including Pliny the Elder, the beer that coined the term "Double IPA". We also see if a highly-acclaimed Midwestern Double IPA can stand up to its West Coast cousins. Hop heads, you won't want to miss this episode!
For our second book review, Chris discusses Randy Mosher's Tasting Beer, and talks about why he feels it is the best concise book on beer written to date.
Usually Chris likes to talk a little bit about the history of the beer styles he's tasting, but that's hard to do with something as brand new as Belgian IPA. A style still very much in development, Belgian IPAs marry the yeasty flavors of Belgian ales with the bright hop character for which American craft beers are known. In this episode, Chris and Margaret taste three American examples of Belgian IPA.
Sierra Nevada doesn't rush into their new beer releases, preferring to take it slow and get it right the first time. Hopefully this bodes well for their newest release, Ruthless Rye, Sierra Nevada's first attempt at a Rye IPA.
Lagunitas couldn't produce their annual Christmas seasonal Brown Shugga this year, so they've brewed a replacement beer with the awesomely self-deprecating name Lagunitas Sucks. Chris and Margaret will taste the beer to see if in fact Lagunitas Sucks, sucks.
In part two of the IPA show, Chris tastes four more examples of what may be the stylistic king of craft beer.

Chris throws objectivity out the window in this episode as he tastes one of his desert island beers - Three Floyd's Alpha Klaus.
People often ask me which beer books are my favorite. I figured I'd start to record my thoughts on some of the many books about beer I've read. Please let me know what you think!

Chris and Margaret won't be making it home for the holidays this year, so they've decided to do the next best thing, and drink some hometown beers instead. First up is The First State - Margaret's old stomping ground.
