Podcast Beer Pairings

Augustiner Helles: Made according to the German Purity law its made with all Bavarian hops and malt, then given a long secondary fermentation to make for a crisp, smooth beer with a lightly hoppy finish. It's the ultimate summer beer and absurdly drinkable. More info.

Offshore PIlsner: Offshore Pilsner is a pale straw beer with a herbal lemon aroma. In the mouth the beer is crisp and light with clean fruit notes. The finish is brisk and refreshing leaving a dry citrus linger. More info.
