This week on the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest, Business Over Beer throws a LIVE Valentines Podcast Party at Heathen Brewing Feral Public House with our very special guest Kura Love of Pure Romance. Kura talks about the business side of being a Pure Romance consultant and explains that her parties are as much about women's sexual health and wellness as they are about the naughty stuff.
This is our third live event, we're still figuring out the audio side of live broadcasting. Sorry for the spots of feedback in the recording and to our audience who had trouble hearing the interview, but despite these snafus, we still had a great time. Happy Valentines Day!
Stickmen Brewing Company - Lake Oswego, OR
Blackberry Berliner Schwarz, Fruit Sour, 5.7% ABV, 5 IBU, SRM 32
"A kettle soured Berliner Weiss style beer brewed with debittered black malt and fermented with Oregon blackberry."
Heathen Brewing - Vancouver, WA - Special Release #1:
Braspberry, Blueberry & Raspberry Sour Ale, 5.1% ABV, 10 IBU
"Is it a coincidence that a blueberry fits inside a raspberry? We think not! After several experiments seeing if and how many blueberries can fit inside of a raspberry, we determined that was usually only one. Some may find this experiment pointless...we did come to the conclusion on one thing...a blueberry inside of a raspberry tastes great! So we took our hours of research and used it to make a beer. We added raspberry and blueberry puree to our sour base along with some lactose for a hint of sweetness that pairs perfectly with the tartness from the raspberries and sour base."
Heathen Brewing - Vancouver, WA - Special Release #2:
The Hop Whisperer, New England IPA, 5.7% ABV, 20 IBU
"We whispered sweet nothings in order to get our hands on some Sabro, Wakatu, and Galaxy hops which have some awesome lime and coconut aromas. This smooth and creamy Hazy IPA balances a light maltiness with layers of tropical fruits and will have you whispering "Whoaaaa."
