S11E08: “He Used To Have Some Wild Tastings, That Fibonacci”

PODCAST | In this bumper season closer, we breakdown our picks, both strange and brilliant, for Melbourne’s fabled Good Beer Week festival, and journey through Container C of the Melbourne GABS festival lineup, finding ourselves drooling just a little bit at what is to come. But all of this is just talk in preparation for our full-on vertical tasting of Mountain Goat’s Imperial Stout series, from 2015 to 2017. Not to give too much away, but it all involves a lot of high-alcohol booze. There’s even a Chris Issac reference, for reasons we can’t recall.

And if all that wasn’t enough we actually learn, via WikiHow, the steps to do a vertical tasting, and wonder what horizontal, diagonal, and Fibonacci tastings would look like.

Note: this is our last episode for this season, but we’ll be right back as soon as we can. So probably in around a month.

Featured beers: Barrel Breed: Imperial Stout (2015), Barrel Breed: Imperial Stout (2016), and Barrel Breed: Imperial Stout (2017) by Mountain Goat Beer.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
