Rhiana Cameron of Country Financial is our guest this week. Despite Rhiana’s love of good beer, we found out that she suffers from Degenerative Palate Syndrome – #DPS – which causes her to prefer and enjoy Miller Lite as her go to. She is also a dedicated financial professional, her agency specializes in financial planning and insurance for people of all ages and income levels.
Guest Beer: Miller Brewing Company – Milwaukee, WI Miller Lite, A Fine Pilsner Beer, 4.2% ABV
“Miller Lite is the original light beer. Introduced in 1975, Miller Lite was brewed to be a great tasting beer that just happened to be light, not some lesser version of a full-calorie beer. The Miller Lite recipe uses a unique blend of choice Saaz and Pacific Northwest hops and a significant amount of caramel malt. In addition, we are still proud to use the same strain of brewer’s yeast that Frederick Miller brought with him from Germany in the 1850’s.”
Angie’s Mystery Beer: Rogue – Newport, OR 8 Hop IPA, 8.88% ABV, 80 IBU
“In a bold collaboration with Mother Nature, we grow our own varieties of aroma hops at Rogue Farms in Independence, Ore. We also string, stake, train, test, trim, separate, sort, kiln and cool them. Brewmaster John Maier meticulously selected and blended 8 varieties of our aroma hops to create the brash and burly flavors of our 8 Hop IPA, the boss of our IPA family.”
Personal trainer Brittany Ellingsen stops by this week to give the boys a lesson in fitness with her 70 lb. Darth Vader Kettle Bell.
Guest Beer: Brother Cascadia Brewing – Vancouver, WA You Like ‘A Da Juice, New England Style IPA, 6.5% ABV
“Cloudy, lush, and extremely refreshing, it starts off with a massive punch of juicy, citrusy hops. Bold aromas of orange, tangerine, and tropical stone fruits envelope the senses, leading into a soft palate that is fruity and balanced. Very low bitterness keeps this beer extremely sessionable, allowing all of its other bold characteristics to stand out.”
Angie’s Mystery Beer: Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) – Portland, OR Ace of Spades, Imperial IPA, 8.6% ABV
“NW hops added at every stage of the brewing process: mash tun, first wort, kettle, hop back and dry-hop. Big citrus and resinous hop aromas and flavors. Clean, crisp bitter finish.”

Guest Beer: Corona Extra – Mexico, 4.6% ABV
“With a refreshing, smooth taste balanced between heavier European imports and lighter domestic beer, Corona is an even-keeled cerveza with fruity-honey aromas and a touch of malt. The flavor is crisp, clean and well balanced between hops and malt, a superior taste profile from superior ingredients.”
Angie’s Mystery Beer: Sick-N-Twisted Brewing Co. – Hill City, SD Naughty Redhead Imperial Red Ale, 8% ABV, 43 IBU
“Righteous hops and cherry aromas tell you this is not your ordinary red ale. A sexy complexion with sweet buttery malts and spicy hops make this exotic brew the perfect union of awesomeness in your mouth.”
Bonus Beer: Lewis and Clark Brewing Co. – Helena, MT Tumbleweed IPA, 7.7% ABV, 68 IBU
“A TWO-TIME GOLD MEDAL WINNER at the Great American Beer Festival (2001,2014). This is Montana’s Most Award Winning IPA! It’s amber color and incredible hoppy aroma (plenty of Cascade & Centennial hops) along with a strong malt backbone using Montana gown and malted barley work together to create an incredibly well balanced IPA.”
