Check me out on the new 'Ladies Night' talk show!

I had them try Bell's Two Hearted, Southern Tier Crème Brûlée Stout, Lindemans Framboise and Frozen Pints!

There is this new late night talk show hosted by four lovely female celebrities called 'Ladies Night' based in Atlanta and they invited me to come on board and school them on beer. Hosts Angela Gomes, Rashan Ali, Nina Brown and Jasmine Burke decided to open their minds to the world of ales and lagers, so I brought them some of the best beer available and surprised their studio audience with some as well. Everyone got their sip on while playing the infamous "I've Never" game which got kinda racy. It was awesome!
After the intro, I come on around the 6:41 mark.

The beers I picked:
Of course, I had to go with a sweet, fruity beer to open them up, so I chose the Lindemans Framboise (2.5% alcohol by volume) out of Belgium to dispel any myths that all beer is bitter. Its pink, Champagne-like appearance, and delicious flavors of raspberries and cherries won them over as expected. 


After Lindemans, I took them to a totally different route with one of the best India pale ales in the world, Bell's Two Hearted IPA (7%), which  perfectly balances its strong hop presence with malty sweetness. 


Then there was my closer; I used a beer that easily mimics one of the most popular desserts worldwide, the Southern Tier Crème Brûlée Imperial Stout (9.6%). 


Last, to really show how diverse flavors of beer can be, I hit everyone off with Frozen Pints Craft Beer Ice Cream in three different flavors. They erupted when trays of their Peach Lambic, Malted Milk Chocolate Stout, and Vanilla Bock flavors were passed around. 
I ended this fun episode by saying "Don't sleep on beer no more!" This was one helluva time and I want to sincerely thank Rob Gomes and the whole Ladies Night crew for having me on board. Look for more episodes soon.

Cheers!
Ale
