Black Plague Brewing

This week on TIBS! we sat down with the fine gentlemen of Black Plague Brewing. We had a blast hanging out with Jordan Hoffart, Jared Doss, and Aeryk Heeg. We hit it off instantly and now we’re all buddies.

While the show progresses, and sampling of their products got deeper, we were impressed with the quality of their offerings. I believe it would be obvious to anyone that talks to these guys that their passion and drive to help BP excel are second to none. I often say authenticity matters, and this crew has it in spades.

I’m stoked they make clear AF beer, but, due to the world’s intent on irony, my favorite beer of the evening was Hazy Scandal. You’ll hear a few slips of my skate nerdness, there’s a great Esthela’s Cheves this week, and you’ll get to know a little bit about this Oceanside brewery.

We had a little too much fun yucking it up with these two stand out members of the SD craft beer scene, so we’re splitting The Show into 2 halves. Before I forget, I want to mention Tomme was honored with the Russell Schehrer Award, a legacy award for contributions and innovations in craft brewing.

The discussion circles through the DDG process, a playful look at the difficulty of the release in ’16, Green Duck Duck, and some current goings on of The Hop Concept and Port Brewing.

Rye’d The Dragon at Savagewood!

Over here at TIBS!, we’ve been on a tremendous streak of good fortune! This week, well last month actually, we got the chance to collaborate with Savagewood Brewing on a fine crafted beverage.

The malts break down like this, 80% 2 row, 12% rye malt, and 8% flaked oats. We saved room in the kettle for a cold water addition after the boil, that dropped our whirlpool temp down to about 175 degrees, for 1.33lbs/BBL of Dragon hops to take a swim in. Then they let WLP067 do its job and added 2.66lbs/BBL of those same Dragon hops in dry hopage.

I think the beer turned out really good, but don’t take my word for it, get over there and try it for yourself! Yes, the limited cans have sold out but there’s still some available on drat for another week or so!

We had a blast recording a live show at the Rye’d The Dragon release party, we really enjoy getting to interact with our fans when we get the chance. Thank you to everyone that made it out and an even bigger thank you goes to Savagewood for working with us on an indie beer show indie beer! Get listening!
