In this month’s episode, Big Mike and Dagan are joined by Knee Deep Brewing’s Jeremy Warren and Jeb Taylor to talk about the history of IPAs; they also chat with last month’s style competition winner, Jake Neumyer; and Big Mike and Jeremy share their thoughts on the most important ingredient in beer.
Big Mike covers the short history of beer in the U.S. (booo 18th ammendment, yaaaay 21st ammendment) and ends with how we arrived at American Pale Ale in the mid 1970s. Don't forget to send your beer history and/or homebrewing questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With guest David Mathis (founder/brewer at American River Brewing Co.), Big Mike covers the tumultuous history of English Ales, the rise of the "Lager Head," and the meaning of a craft brew. Dagan plays devil's advocate and defends large-scale brewers, but is promptly squashed by Big Mike and David.
After a club vote to discuss Trapist and Abby beers (to avoid a three-hour discussion) Big Mike covers what makes a Trapist and/or Abby beer, their history and where to find a good commercial sample.

This time Big Mike discusses the history and style of Kolsch. Dagan listens attentively (and drinks his beer).
In episode 2 of PUBScast, Mike Moore covers the history of pilsners (and Dagan fixes his microphone).
