WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 10 May 2013 Weyerbacher Brewer’s Select Andromeda w/Chris Wilson

It was a really special day on the WILK Friday BeerBuzz today.  Three years ago today, we all sat down in the WILK studio and launched into our very first WILK Friday BeerBuzz show.  We featured Troegs Hopback, and to this day I recall not only the odd feeling in my belly, but also the mix of excitement and pure terror.  Jump ahead to today and it seems like 3-years has flown by so quickly.  We’ve done over 160 shows, we’ve welcomed some of the best brewers in the world; we’ve sampled hundreds of beers, we’ve hosted bus trips and listener parties and we’ve brought you all some really rare and amazing beers.  As if all this is not enough, we managed to win a PA Associated Press Award and not one, but two PA Association of Broadcasters awards.  It’s been a magical ride and I think John, Nancy, Joe, Bosco and everyone who has made the WILK Friday BeerBuzz what it is.  Bring Good Beers & Good People Together has never been so much fun.

It is a WILK Friday BeerBuzz tradition to celebrate our anniversary with our friends at Weyerbacher Brewing.  And this year as we celebrate 3, they celebrate their 18th Anniversary.  Today our pals Chris Wilson and Bobby Clark both joined us in the studio to raise a glass and toast some special friends…all of our listeners and all of the Weyerbacher lovers out there….and Yes before you ask…that’s our pal Chris Wilson from Weyerbacher trying out the Big Red Chair (above)!
As if that’s not enough, Chris & Bobby manager to bring us a really special beer to sample…Weyerbacher Brewer’s Select Andromeda.  This beer is the very first beer in the 2nd Brewer’s Select series of beers as the naming moves from the Phonetic Alphabet to Constellations.  Andromeda is a really malt-forward amber ale, it comes in at 4.7% ABV so it’s easy drinking and I really loved the bready & roasted grain flavors as well as the malty flavor and aroma of coffee.  This is a wonderful beer and I have some REALLY GOOD NEWS for all of our listeners!

Tonight (5/10) from 5-7PM at Krugel’s Georgetown Deli & Beer, Chris Wilson & Bobby Clark from Weyerbacher will be joining us to pour free samples of Brewer’s Select Andromeda (one of only two rare kegs) as well as some other special beers.  You need to be 21+ to sample, but all are welcome to join us in the festivities as we celebrate the 3rd Anniversary of the WILK Friday BeerBuzz.  Full event details are HERE…but DO NOT MISS this celebration!  Stop by and say hi and raise a glass to 3 years of great beer and 18-years of Weyerbacher beers!

It was really cool to talk to Chris Wilson today and get some updates on the new Weyerbacher Brewery expansion.  Of course it’s always fun talking beer with Chris and hearing what’s coming next from Weyerbacher in their Anniversary series of beers as well as the Brewer’s Select Series.  As if that wasn’t fun enough, it was a real treat to get an update on a very special beer Chris brewed at De La Senne brewery in Brussels, BE.  The beer will be named Mannekin Penn and it will be released for Philly Beer Week so stay tuned for details on where you can try it.

It was a lot to cram into 15-mins, but we managed to sample a great beer and get all sorts of great Weyerbacher info at the same time.  If we missed anything, stop by tonight and ask Chris or Bobby for yourself.

Thank you to Chris Wilson & Bobby Clark from Weyerbacher Brewing, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another

fun Friday.
