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.

  • John - History/origin, discussion, etc.
  • Q & A
  • Listener Email - Sour beer update from Doley in FL: tried St. Louis fond tradition--That's probably what the goats drank that made them angry.  Not a fan.  Founders Rubaeus--that one was pretty good.  Nice tart raspberry taste, good price.  I'll get more of that.  Best so far: St. Louis framboise lambic.  Great tart/ sweet berry taste. Really liked that stuff. Only downsides are $7.99 a bottle and the fact that it's only 2.8% abv; is it really beer? I'd drink that stuff by the gallon if it was less expensive.  On another note-- the superhero stuff on the last episode: Roundtree/Shaft? Gimme a break.  Dolemite would kick the balls off that sissy. For sure
