This week we spend some time talking about the Great American Beer Festival and coming up with the benchmarks of our crushability scale. Our crushability scale is blatantly ripped off from @TravisRodgers' Rose/Carroll scale for haircuts.

In this episode we talk a bit about sour beer making. Specifically we talk about how we make sour beer and how it is similar and different from traditional producers and other modern producers.
Buzzed words from Brandon:
- Larkin - "hook" or "horns" (in reference to his beloved football)
- Ryan - "kick off" or "kick up"
Buzzed words from Ryan:
- Brandon: funk
- Larkin: allagash
Buzzed words from Eric:
- Ryan - aromatic
- Brandon - international citrus units
So, when Ryan says "Aromatic" or "Kick off/up" you drink. When Eric says "Allagash" or "hook em horns" you drink. When Brandon says "funk" or "international citrus units" you drink.

In this episode, we say "uh" hopefully, uh, a lot less. Plus we tackle some listener questions about NE style IPAs that came in after our first episode.
Today's Buzzed words are sparse, because Brandon and Larkin didn't do their homework. When someone says their Buzzed Word, you drink.
Brandon's buzzed word: glycoside
Eric's buzzed word: America
Ryan has no buzzed words because Brandon and Eric didn't send any before we started recording
