Beers In This Episode

SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale from SweetWater Brewing Company drank on the Photo Bar Podcast

Matt’s Beer

BeerSweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale 5.40%

Brewing Company: SweetWater Brewing Company – Georgia US

Our Star Rating: 5 out of 5


Medium gold, just slightly hazy, with an airy, frothy head of white foam and dense, patchy foam. It’s a lighter-bodied West Coast style pale ale with aggressive hop character in the aroma, flavor, and finish. It’s available year round and one of my personal favorites.

Sunset Coffee Golden Road Brewery drank on the Photo Bar Podcast

Amanda’s Beer

Beer: Sunset Coffee 5.5%

Brewing Company: Golden Road Brewing – California, US

Our Star Rating: 1 out of 5

NotesSuper dark beer, thick pour. Starts off innocently enough with a rich coffee flavor, but leaves an aftertaste that’s more like instant Folger’s coffee.
