Last night, I recorded episode 16 of Jarate Sandvich (although I’m wondering why 14 and 15 aren’t on winehousefactory.com yet, and in the RSS feed, 15 isn’t up) and the episode got interesting as the four of us got increasingly drunk. Our choice of beers may have been a bad call, since 3 of the 4 were strong drinks – Stone Ruination IPA, Samuel Adam’s Double Bock and Dogfish Head Ancient Ale. The fourth, and the only reasonable drink, was Samuel Adam’s Cherry Wheat. The Ruination was surprisingly delicious. I guess my palate is finally starting to accept the taste of an IPA. I didn’t much enjoy the Ancient Ale, but the Double Bock was amazing.The Cherry Wheat was also quite good, although by the time we got to that beer, we were well trashed.
The Double Bock is to malt what Mighty Arrow is to hops – the bottle says 1/2 lb of malt per bottle. In comparison, the Porter being brewed by Will, Dan and myself will have 1/10 lb of malt per bottle. This Sunday, when we bottle the porter, I plan to bring over some ice cream and a pack of Double Bock to make some Double Bock floats – just like a root beer float, but better and with alcohol.
Also during the episode, we talked about the Team Fortress 2 classless update, Madden 10 and the Steam Indie Games Pack.
