Bois & Bar Talk

Oct 22, 2021

On the 14th episode of the Bois & Bar Talk podcast, the Drink of the Week is Mr. Waterbury. We have an American IPA today, a common theme on the 4th season here. Mr. Waterbury is made by Big Tree Brewing Company out of Waterbury, VT.

We chose this drink because of the name of the beer alone. The Waterbury reference hits close to home, literally. We live in the Waterbury, CT area but we didn't know that there was also a Waterbury in Vermont.

Apparently Big Tree Brewing is a side project made by Mark Frier. He's a popular guy in the Waterbury, Vermont area who is known for restaurants. However, he makes beer too, by doing local partnerships. You can read more about him and the partnership here.

Mr. Waterbury is a hazy citra hop IPA. It has a pale, goldish color with a white foam head. It has a strong aroma of tangerine and grapefruit. This beer has an ABV of 6% and it's fairly easy to drink. It also had a fair amount of bitterness along with the strong fruity flavors. We felt like it was hard to give this drink an identity. Overall, not bad but it's hard to see this one standing out compared to other IPA's on the show this season.

How We Rated Mr. Waterbury

  • Rob’s Rating: 5.4/10
  • Kev’s Rating: 6.2/10

We kick off the show reminding everyone to check out the website to find out all of our episode posts. We do show notes and ratings for every beer and every episode.Here’s how the episode goes down with Mr. Waterbury.

Show Notes

  • Wedding season: Rob just went to his sister Laina's wedding and we talked about the greatest moments from a wedding celebration. Kev makes it a point to hit the dance floor literally the entire time.
  • Pesky things that bother you: We about how minuscule things could really ruin your whole mood! Whether it's a popcorn kernel stuck in your mouth, a loose collar hitting your neck, or a piece of rubber dragging on the bottom of your shoe.
  • Dave Chappelle: He recently had his own comedy special drop on Netflix. Netflix is taking lots of heat for backing him up with his controversial content.
