Best of TIBS! – Mobile West Canning

Here’s to unexpected things happening in 2021 like it’s the 14th month of ’20! The show that should be publishing right now won’t see the light of day, sometimes that happens. Exactly 2 times, to be precise.

We thought we would take a trip back in time, all the way to December of 2019, when our guest was Mobile West Canning. At the time of recording this episode there was no way to know the extreme importance MWC’s service would have the following year. Just four months after this recording, we went into lockdown due to Covid.

The lifeline of canned beer Mobile West offered several of our favorite breweries during to go only restrictions cannot be overstated. For some breweries, MWC is the only reason they survived this unprecedented time.

Sit back and remember a simpler time, when people could sit at the same table and drink and laugh together all night!

Live with The Indie Beer Show

Every once in awhile we like to do a Show where it’s just us hanging out with you. In the long, long ago, we would be having a bottle share or some other fun activity to interact with our friends and supporters.

Pink elephants aside, we’ll fire up TIBS! at the same bat time and on the same bat channels as usual to talk about the current state of beer in San Diego, our future amazing guests we have scheduled, and most importantly, have fun!

This week, we’re drinking all dark beers!

We’ll be featuring the following:

Midnight Expression from Port Brewing – Dark Lager

Stout from Sierra Nevada (the first beer they brewed)

Spicy Maya from Thorn – Dry Irish Stout with cocoa nibs, pasilla peppers, cayenne and a touch of cinnamon

Doom Blade from Modern Times – Black IPA

Thank you for being the best humans on Earth; we hope you enjoy the audio version of this episode and/or the live stream below!
