Episode 22 - Mother Earth BooKoo IPA

Episode 22 - Mother Earth BooKoo IPA

February 1, 2018

Waddup beer nerds we're back with a full length 'sode for ya! This episode was recorded in San Diego with my two closest friends from college (UCSB go gauchos), Bianca and Amanda. We are drinking the BooKoo IPA from Mother Earth in Vista, CA. Although this episode is less beer-centric and more telling crazy stories from college (please don't judge me for all the vodka I drank), it feels like a sleepover and who doesn't love reminiscing with their friends? Take off your bra, put on yoga pants, and join me and my girls as we share a beer and embarrassing stories. 

In this episode we talk Amanda's bachelorette party, nightmare roommate situations, and we have an existential crisis over about the evolution of social media. Grab a beer and join us! Cheers!

Waddup Beer Fam! It's been a hot sec but Cheers to Beers is back, baby! Now introducing mini episodes called Half Pints, I'll be releasing these between full episodes as I get back into the podcasting game. The Half Pints episodes will be me and friend of the podcast, Coel, bantering on my balcony (while drinking of course). Topics will range from seasonal beers, to venting about work, to anything interesting going on in the beer world.

This episode was recorded on Friday the 13th and we get into seasonal and trendy styles of this Fall. Grab a schooner and join us! Cheers! 

Episode 19 - TRAPPIST-1 & Westmalle Tripel

Episode 19 - TRAPPIST-1 & Westmalle Tripel

April 6, 2017
It's a space themed episode with actual scientists! Remember when NASA released the news on a star called TRAPPIST-1 that has seven exoplanets orbiting it with some being potentially Earth-like? Yeah, I talk all about that with astronomers Jake and Dave. And what a better beer to have when talking about space, stars, and potential extraterrestrial life than a Trappist ale. We're drinking the Westmalle Tripel in honor of the Belgian scientists who found this star. Strap in for some insight on these planets, the potential for alien beer, and everything you need to know about TRAPPIST-1! Grab a beer and join us!

It's the chefs edition of Cheers to Beers!
