On this week’s The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we’re drinkin’ beer on my front porch! We welcome back our resident (and unpaid) beer experts, Matt Horney and Sal Mortillaro. Maintaining social distancing, of course, we sip on some brews and talk shop on the porch!

NOLADrinks Show – Beer on My Front Porch – Apr20Ep4

Out of the gate, we let you know what’s on tap (pun intended) for this week’s show. We also make note of the passing of New Orleans blues and R&B great, Alton “Big Al” Carson, whose tunes you’ll here in and out of the breaks.

Then, we head out to, well, my front porch for our featured interview. We’re joined by our regular beer experts, Matt Horney, brewmaster at Old Rail Brewing Co. and certified beer judge, and Sal Mortillaro, grand master beer judge with the Beer Judge Certification Program.

About once a quarter, Matt and Sal join the show to talk about beer – whether it be styles, techniques, ingredients, history, etc. for our theme. Often, we dovetail into interesting segues (these guys are walking beer encyclopedias…)

So, I figured, why not make this week’s theme nothing more than “drinking beer on my front porch.” Seemed to fit the current situation well!

We sip on several things and talk about them (and other things.) We also discuss mead and enjoy a tasty mead cocktail put together by Sal. As always, it’s an interesting, fun, and tasty chat!

Sal and Matt stick around for “Another Shot with NOLADrinks,” our podcast-only segment. Our main conversation there centers around the effects and potential effects of the coronavirus crisis on taproom-driven breweries.

Pictured above – Here’s what we imbibed on the show! Some were discussed on air and some weren’t – but, all delicious! Not pictured is the fantastic “Hobo Helles” crafted by Matt at Old Rail Brewing Co.

We close things out with our “Parting Shot” with some thoughts on the restaurant and bar industry during this time.

The map below shows the location of Old Rail Brewing Co. in Old Mandeville. They’re currently open for go-food and you can also get growlers of beer, too! You can subscribe to, stream, and download the podcast of The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias using the links and player at the top of the post.

Cheers and Be Safe, You All!
