On Friday, March 27, 2015 Craft Beer Nation will be celebrating Friday Night Hangout Episode 151 with the Pale Ale and a slightly revamped FNH 2.0 formula. For the most part the show will be what it has been: drinking and discussing a different style of Craft Beer each week. However, we’ve decided to concentrate a bit more on providing useful and interesting content and less shenanigans.
Going forward throughout the week we will be posting about that week’s FNH style leading up to our show on Friday evenings. We also want to hear from you. We want you to share your thoughts, pics, reviews on each week’s FNH beer style.
We’re also very interested in hearing your feedback. What do you like or dislike about the show? Without us hearing from you we don’t know if we are delivering content you find interesting and useful. And if you have any suggestions for a segment please let us know. Also, very soon we will be giving you the chance to choose an upcoming FNH craft beer style. Bottom line: we want to know what you like or dislike about each week’s style. We want you to be involved and have your comments shared.
So, we’ve had a blast finishing up 150 episodes and now we look forward to many more.
Reminder: This week’s #FNHbeer is PALE ALE. So share with us your thoughts on the style.
The Craft Beer Nation is all about beer, good beer. We love everything about this beverage and love to share that enthusiasm. If you are a craft beer lover then welcome home! We do beer reviews, beer hangouts, brewery interviews, beer making, and of course lots of drinking. Whatever your question is, just find a subcategory and fire it off. Odds are someone here can offer an answer.
Tune in to watch some Certified BJCPs of various ranks hangout with some +Craft Beer Nation folks as they review a category of the style guidelines. There will be drinking and conversation, but we will be keeping more to the subject at hand for these than we traditionally do for our Friday Night Hangout.
These sessions are a way to review and prepare for the BJCP exams. Ask questions here in this event.
This week – “Lagers” – we will be tasting the most consumed beer style in the world. Bring your favorite Lager: Bock, Pilsner and Märzen and some dark lagers: Dunkel, Schwarzbier and Baltic Porters. I know it’s winter but who cares? It’s beer ;) be ready to enjoy!
We don’t know how the game will work. We don’t know what the prizes will be. We don’t even know how bad of an idea this is in general. But, won’t you join us for some Craft Beer Industry Buzzword Bingo? Tune in or Join in to find out what the fun is all about.
Sooo….many of us got thrown off by the long weekend and totally forgot about the Friday Night Hangout last night. If not for the dedication of +Boris Castillo, +Lola Lariscy, and +James R, our streak of continuous Friday nights (more than two years!) would have been ruined. In the name of simplicity, they chose Drinker’s Choice for December 6th. This is a great chance for some new to HoA folks to grab something…ANYTHING…from the fridge and log in to hangout. Don’t be afraid. We don’t bite. (Well, some do, but they have had all their shots)
This weeks #BreweryOfTheWeek is Ballast Point. Tune in Wednesday night as CBN interviews Yuseff Cherney. He is the Chief Operating Officer, Head Brewer, and Head Distiller (and still has time to hangout on the internet??).
Get your favorite Ballast Point beverage out of the fridge and tune in!
