Your Favorite Pale Ales and a Podcast

Eno Sarris, September 02, 2014

The new Drinking With Shirt podcast is about two sours. Readily available sours, even, or at least as readily available as it gets when it comes to sours. So you can play along if you can find em. 

But Friday I asked you guys to name your favorite pale ales -- whether APA, DIPA or TIPA -- and I thought I'd compile the list for you here. The best way to cure the Monday/Tuesday blues is to think about Friday. (Which is even closer this week!)
