This week we head deep into the heart of Texas ... with a delicious Rye IPA from Jester King Craft Brewery in Austin, Texas, Wytchmaker.
Matt gets lost on a train, Stephen fondly remembers Pee Wee Herman, and John measures distance in bedrooms.
We're joined by John's brother, and Stephen's roommate, Aaron Holzer who was busy drinking absinthe when we called him to fill in, so everything tastes like black licorice to him.
On Master Pairings John joins Dr. Bill in the kitchen for a delicious pairing of Tri Tip smothered in Kansas City BBQ sauce with Firestone Walker Robust Porter. The pairing, and Bill's cooking, render John speechless, and Sammy waits patiently for someone to notice him and let him join in.
John drools over his photography, Stephen begins to respect Texas thanks to craft breweries and we are all affected by labels on a beer.
One last reminder .. if you are in the Southern California area, and you want to enjoy Pliny the Younger at your leisure with no lines and even better support a great charity while you do it, head over to Beachwood BBQ by the end of the day Friday (tomorrow) and get your raffle tickets. The winners will be announced on a "live" stream starting at 6PM on Monday the 20th!
