We are live on the scene of Pilsnerfest 2019 where the sun is shining, the pilsners are slamming, and there ain't a single IPA in sight. Follow Shawna and I as we interview some characters (including the CEO) on a groundbreaking new game: "16 CanDolls", shitty SoCal lagers, Pilsner recipes, and our Grandfather Randy Mosher. Grab a pilsner and join in on a speciality live episode. Cheers!

Half Pint 3 - Alcohol That Doesn’t Taste Like Alcohol ft. Shawna Cormier and Hard Seltzer

Half Pint 3 - Alcohol That Doesn’t Taste Like Alcohol ft. Shawna Cormier and Hard Seltzer

August 18, 2019

Half Pints are back! In the newest minisode, I introduce my new occasional co-host, Shawna Cormier. We talk about summer dranks and how there's a trend in both the beer world (and in the beverage industry in general) of how no one wants to drink something that actually tastes like alcohol. We try to understand this phenomenon by cracking open some White Claw and True hard seltzers.  Drink along with us (if you dare).

Modern Times PDX

Modern Times PDX

July 25, 2019
"I'm done when it stops being about bringing people together"
 
Mike from Modern Times (currently PDX) and I drink a lot of MT beers. Including Black House Nitro Stout, Poly Rhythmo Pilsner, and Shrine of the Forsaken Gods (Jester King collab). Listen to us talk about loving beer for what it does for people and community, going from being a "spy" to a brewer, and that one time Mike almost died from McDonalds. 
Side Note: I KNOW I said Floodland(s) not FloodLAND don't @ me!! 
Grab a Modern Times beer and drink along with us! Cheers!
 
Jester King Fantome del Rey

Jester King Fantome del Rey

June 5, 2019
Cheers to Beers is back babbyyy! And we're jumping back in with a good ol' fashioned hang sesh. 
 
Join me and my industry (but more importantly close and beautiful) friends Samira and Matt as we drink Jester Kind Fantome del Rey + Rainier chambongs at the Masonry Fremont. Disclaimer: I say the wrong name of the beer in the intro! My Bad! It's del Rey not del Mar. No matter how I said it it's still a bomb-ass beer. 
 
Listen to us struggle to pick a beer, get deep into what it means to work for a craft brewery, experiencing sexism as a bartender, and get some solid advice on how to do your nighttime drunchies. 
 
Grab a Jester King (or whatever beer you got) and join us! Cheers! 
Mother Earth BooKoo IPA

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! 

TRAPPIST-1 & Westmalle Tripel

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!
