- Chip's Solo Brew Session: Clemifornia Commontine
- Basement Tour & Tasting Notes X 2
- Lots of blooper-worthy loopiness
BTV videographer Chip Walton has the wintertime blues. He hopes to cure them with a homebrewed beer kissed by the sun in the form of clementines aka "Christmas Oranges." But Jake & Mike are nowhere to be found. Thankfully Chip ain't scared! He grabbed a camera, tripod and wireless mic to host his own self-shot episode. Needless to say, he bit off just a little more than he could chew and things get a little out-of-hand. Join Chip as he brews his unique Clemifornia Commontine beer, talks/sings to himself and gives tasting notes on his own Chizzer Wizzer and Le Saison Noire homebrews. All for brew, brew for one.

Seasonal Ingredient: Clementines - this blog inspired the idea to make the Clemifornia Commontine. In it Jeremy King includes recipes for two beers, a mead, wine, tequila infusion and soda pop that utilize clementines. Better hurry, the fruit is almost out of season!
