Spoetzl Brewery is the oldest craft beer brewery in Texas and we attend its 106th birthday by drinking the Shiner 106 Birthday Cheer Chocolate Stout. Shiner distributes to 49 states and is the third biggest craft brewer in the country. The brewery was started by German and Czech immigrants in 1909, but is now owned by the Gambrinus Company.

The Shiner 106 Birthday Cheer is a chocolate stout brewed with chocolate malt and real cocoa, with an ABV of 5% and 20 IBU.

In the education corner, we talk about session beers, its dubious World War I history, and what it means for drinkability. 

In news, we talk about the these stories:

Kona's Koko Brown Ale is becoming rare in Texas and we review our very last bottle. Koko Brown is a winter and spring seasonal brewed with coconuts that has a 5.5% ABV with 28 IBU, that has a strong coconut flavor with equally strong toffee flavors that make it a highly drinkable beer. 

Kona is one of the larger craft breweries, based out of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. It was founded by father and son Cameron Healy and Spoon Khalsa in 1995, but is now owned by the Craft Beer Alliance.

It's time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with our first interview and a Texican craft beer: No Label's Don Jalapeño, a spring seasonal chili beer based on their Pale Horse pale ale, but made with 30 pounds of raw jalapeños and 30 pounds of roasted jalapeños. 

No Label is a family-owned brewery out of Katy, Texas (near Houston) that couldn't decide on a name to represent every family member, so they settled on No Label.

Instead of news this week, we talk about our ride on the Dallas Brew Bus and interview Matt Dixon and Jordan Moon from Dallas Brew Scene, who run the bus.

We discuss how Matt and Jordan got their start, fending off rivals, the increasing tap competition in Dallas, their gateway beers (Shiner, Pyramid Hefeweizen, Kasteel, Stone IPA and Arrogant Bastard), their favorite beers, brewing education, how macrobrewers are helping craft beer, favorite beer cities (Portland and Munich), the beers that blow them away (Sam Adams Utopias and Goose Island King Henry) and how contentious the craft beer scene is coming in Dallas.

The Brew Bloods return to tackle the famous craft beer Founders KBS, appropriately so since it's the end of April. Founders is a brewery out of Grand Rapids, Michigan serving mostly the eastern half of the United States and their most famous beers are the KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) and the CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout), both of which are high in the RateBeer charts.

Pictures of the caves where KBS is aged can be found here:

In the educational segment we talk about the purpose of stirring/mash paddles and how they're used in brewing your beer, plus a story of someone being a Beer Bully.

In Brews in the News, we talk about the following stories

The Beer Wench's article about misogyny and being a Beer Bully. Ironically, actually misandry on her part.

- An Oregon Home Brewers guild wants to make beer out of waste water.

- Japanese brewery Suntory is making a beer with collagen called "Precious" that they claim will make you prettier.
