WILK Friday BeerBuzz–Terrapin Reunion Ale 2012 w/Spike Buckowski


We’ve loved many of our Friday BeerBuzz guests and had a great time with each and every one of them, but today’s guest holds a very special place in our pint glasses.  Spike Buckowski joined us back at the very beginning of the WILK Friday BeerBuzz.  We featured Big Hoppy Monster and Spike was one of our very first phone guests on the show.  Naturally the beer was great and Spike was a lot of fun talking beer with.

When Spike release his Side Project #14 (aka Tom Foolery) I knew we had our April Fools Day beer & guest and Spike didn’t let me down.  Of course this unusual Black Saison was delish, and we even convinced Spike to give up some details on the next TWO Side Project beers including Phlux Capacitor (which didn’t hit the beer-media until months later)…but perhaps my favorite part was Spike’s Carmen Elektra massage going on while we did the interview.  wink wink….

With all the great news coming out of Terrapin lately, we decided we were overdue having our pal Spike join us again….and with Terrapin celebrating their 10th Anniversary… today was the perfect day

It was a lot of fun talking about Spike’s adventure in New Zealand (with Boundary Road Brewing) and even more exciting to get all of the details on the Terrapin brewhouse expansion.  I knew when I saw photos of the new fermentation tanks with a “Coming Soon--More Terrapin Beer” sign on it we were in for good news.

Not surprisingly my favorite part of the show was tasting the Terrapin / Shmaltz Reunion Ale 2012 –”A Beer For Hope” with Spike.  This beer is loaded with flavors and complexities, as well as a hint of vanilla cinnamon & cocoa to balance it out.  This is the 6th Reunion beer to honor Virginia MacLean and benefit the IMBCR so it certainly is a”Beer for Hope.”  We should also note that this is a co-brewed beer with among others our guest from a few weeks back, Jeremy Cowan from Shmaltz Brewing….so it was a perfect fit.

No Spike Buckowski show can end without pumping Spike for details on the next Side Project Beer….and of course Spike does not disappoint…What will Side Project #18 be?? You heard it her first….Terrapin Side Project # 18 will be LIQUID BLISS….a peanut butter chocolate porter (dry-hopped with Georgia peanuts)!  Be sure to watch the video for more details.

Thank you to Spike Buckowski from Terrapin

, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
