This is Episode #8, the newest installment from The Beer Metal Show Podcast. A Show which is dedicated to the two best things, Craft Beer and Fuckin’ Metal. A Craft Beer for the Damned is the title of this episode and is a play on the song title, A Curfew for the Damned by the mighty Edge of Sanity from Sweden. One of my favorite Death Metal bands.
On this episode we have four amazing beers that we dissected and devoured for your listening pleasure. On day 1 we went with Austin’s Hops & Grain Brewing Chingona, a 5.2% Lager with an amazing story behind the beer and Nomad Brewing Co. from Australia with their Freshie Salt & Pepper, a 4.5% Gose brewed with seawater, Tasmanian pepper berries, and coriander. On day 2 we dove right into a Stone Brewing collaboration beer called Neapolitan Dynamite, an 8.5% Imperial Stout brewed with chocolate, vanilla, strawberries and coffee, and we finished off the this episode with Thin Mint Stout, a 9.4% Sweet Stout brewed with mint, Madagascar vanilla, and dark chocolate malt by Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. from Houston, TX.
