We Like Drinking Podcast

The truth is, most of us don't just drink one type of drink, we enjoy all kinds of adult beverages. The majority of the podcast and blogging world, however, sees the world through their own myopic drinking glasses. It's either all beer, all wine, or all spirits, in other words, they're boringly singular. We Like Drinking recognizes that the drink you crave depends on the situation, environment, mood and a host of other things. This podcast works hard to have fun first and maybe teach you something about your favorite drinks.

This week on episode 227 of the We Like Drinking podcast we’ll be discussing that thing when your two favorite huge “craft” breweries form to become one super voltron monster in an effort to take down “the big guys”, and we’ll be taking your questions! So crack open your beer, uncork that wine, and let’s get drinking.

The Tavern Asks

  • Chris W - "Only cook with what you would drink." I typically follow that rule for marinade and sauces, but ignore when the wine is going to spend 3 hours in the oven making meat tasty. So, is that a stupid rule? Is it a smart idea? Or, when does it make sense and when not?
  • Dmitry S - This ridiculous thing and others like it that think they can replace alcohol. And cannabis. Alcohol has been around for millennia. Can it ever be replaced?
