Here's a Short Pour video from this year's Firkin Fest at The Happy Gnome in St. Paul, MN. Video shot Saturday, March 26, 2011. More than 1,500 people gathered to taste more than 75 beers from all over the world served from casks/firkins/pins. Good times. See anyone you know? Thanks to all the BTV fans that came up and gave Chip daps. Y'all rock.
The Home Brewed Chef, Sean Z. Paxton, shows us how to make his Four Ale Nachos. The dish includes four components which could be made and used separately as well: Imperial Stout Lamb Chili, Smoked Porter Stewed Black Beans, IPA Creme Fraiche & Amber Ale Cheese Sauce.

Chip, Jake & Mike gather for tasting notes on three beers from homebrewer Nathan Smith. You can see all of these beers in one form or another (brewing.... or dry-hopping) during our brew session in BTV 32: A Day Around the Bay. Our tasting notes include:
- North Oakland Double IPA fermented with Wyeast 1056
- North Oakland Double IPA fermented with White Labs 001
- Nathan's 461 Barleywine 2011
After many requests from BTV viewers (and before Chip and his wife drink it all!), Chip, Mike & Jake give their tasting notes for the Clemifornia Commontine. This beer was originally brewed by Chip in Episode 29: Clemifornia Dreaming. What can we say - we love this beer.... and Winger.
