In today’s BeerCast, Barley and Slouch dip into their vast stores of beer knowledge (aka Google and BeerAdvocate) to determine the answer to one of life’s most pressing questions. Namely, if you had a functionally useless friend named Goose, and he was shortly to be wed, what kind of beer should he serve at his nuptials? This question has vexed some of our greatest philosophers and scientists throughout the ages. Socrates once famously said, “Only the Oracle at Delphi truly knows whether or not Goose should serve a hefeweizen at his wedding.” Robert Hooke often angrily quipped at Isaac Newton, “If you’re so damn smart, why can’t you answer the notorious Goose Wedding-Beer Condundrum?” And, of course, Stephen Hawking once eloquently stated at a colloquium in Cambridge, “Who the motherfuck is Goose?”
Fortunately, Barley and Slouch have all the answers. Please feel free to disagree with them as viciously as possible in the comments section.*
*Technically, this is Part 2 of a longer Maltercation that was split up to prevent our listeners’ ears from bleeding. For Part 1, Mr. Slouch in the East End, click here. A big thanks to Scott from East End Brewing for responding to the last Maltercation. He graciously cleared up some of our misconceptions and we greatly appreciate his setting the record straight. Scott has built a mini-brewing empire in Pittsburgh brick by brick. We commend him for living the dream of so many Aleheads.
