Books and Beer Club 2 Go – Episode 0

Welcome to the Books and Beer Club podcast!

If you like books and beer, or either, you’ve come to the right place! We’ll discuss what we’re reading and what we’re drinking. And if you listen to books, or don’t drink beer – You’re welcome to join us too! The more the merrier!

Apologies up front for the sound quality and format – It’s going to take a few episodes to get into the swing of things and figure out what works best for everyone!

Curious about the format, the host, or the plan? Thought you might be! So let’s talk!

Who and Why?

Your host – Jenn – an introvert, avid reader, writer, and beer fan, though not expert
Why – I love stories and beer. When I’m too shy to talk about anything else, I’ll spend hours talking about both of these subjects!

The Plan- Weekly episodes

  • Basic/Default – Introduce the beer I’m drinking, discuss the book I’m reading or have finished, discuss and rate the beer.
  • Chat – the basic format but with another book or beer fan – I can probably manage a few of these.
  • Interview – the basic format but instead of what book I’m reading, an interview with a brewer or author – I hope I get some guests to come on the podcast

The Beer

So let’s get this underway! This is what I’m drinking. It’s a special beer for a special occasion. Firestone Walker 22 Anniversary Ale

  • This is blended beer with an ABV of 12.7% that combines the 2018 vintages of the following:
    • Stickee Monkee (Central Coastal Quad)
    • Parabola (Russian Imperial Stout)
    • Bravo (Imperial Brown Ale)
    • Rum Barrel Helldorado (Blonde Barleywine)
    • Gin Barrel Helldorado (Blonde Barleywine)
