WILK Friday Beerbuzz – 16 July 2010 (Bavarian Barbarian 2x4 IPA)

WILKFridayBerbuzz7 Today’s show was a “first” for the Friday Beerbuzz and a first for me.  We’re 11 shows in, and today we featured our first live guest in the studio.  Mike Hiller, Brewmaster for Bavarian Barbarian Brewing, joined us in the studio to sample his new 2x4 IPA.  Bavarian Barbarian comes to us from Williamsport, PA and Mike was kind enough to not only make the early morning drive up, but to also being us some beer to sample.BavarianBarbarian2x4ipa

This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to try Mike’s 2x4 IPA and I really enjoyed it.  This is Mike’s 2nd IPA recipe out of Bavarian Barbarian and this one is definitely my favorite of the two.

It was a lot of fun having a guest on the show and it brings a whole new dynamic to live radio that I really enjoyed.  It’s also a lot of fun to talk beer and sample a beer with the person who brewed it…and Mike is no exception.

Our big news of the day was Mike’s announcement of the “mystery” beer he and Terry Hawbaker from Bullfrog Brewery are brewing together.  Here’s a little snapshot of the beer as it is “slumbering” in oak.  BavarianBarbarianMysteryThese are Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels and the beer will be slumbering for quite some time (October-ish).  Mike tells me the final gravity pre-barrel is 6.66 degrees Plato so it will be an interesting un-holy collaboration.  Mike also tells me the beer will be a Dark Lager and named Gothika.  We also plan to ask Mike to come back up when this beer comes out of the oak and hopefully sample some with us on the air so stay tuned.

All in all a very fun show and

once again I want to say t

hank you to Mike, John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
