Episode Summary

Welcome back, ol' pal. You're listening to Season 4 of Drinking Socially. So what's new around here? This season we're covering more core badges, more games and shenanigans, interviewing more guests, highlighting more verified venues and more. Today we're starting with the most basic, easy, boring badge on Untappd — the one we all have — the Newbie! Grab a pint and listen to Harrison and I try to remember the past!

Episode Notes

Redaction: At 15:30 Harrison asks Jon if you need to drink "Uniques" to level up the Milestone badges.  Jon said that they do not need to be Unique.  Jon was wrong. 🤦‍♂  Milestone badges are only levelled up via Unique Beers.

What We’re Drinking:
Anchor Steam Beer - Anchor Brewing Company

  • ABV: 4.9%
  • Style: California Common
  • IBU: 33
  • Notes: San Francisco's famous Anchor Steam, the classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. The deep amber color, thick creamy head, and rich flavor all testify to our traditional brewing methods. Anchor Steam is unique, for our brewing process has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world. Anchor Steam derives its unusual name from the 19th century when "steam" seems to have been a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast of America under primitive conditions and without ice. The brewing methods of those days are a mystery and, although there are many theories, no one can say with certainty why the word "steam" came to be associated with beer. For many decades Anchor alone has used this quaint name for its unique beer. In modern times, "Steam" has become a trademark of Anchor Brewing.
