Battle of the Belgians

Battle of the Belgians

We’ve spent a lot of time on IPA’s and stouts on this show - now it’s time to switch it up a bit and bring on the Belgian beers! In this episode, we bring back friend of the show Michael to taste four different types of Belgians including a bizarre Eucalyptus tripel, crown the official beer of Neurology, and go on a rant about shower beers.
