Today, on the third episode of Bois & Bar Talk Season 4, we are drinking Czech Mix by Back East Brewing Company. We’ve been trying to get a mixture of new beers rather than our heavy doses of IPA’s.
Czech Mix is a pilsner with an ABV of 4.9%. With typical pilsner fashion, it pours with a golden, yellowish body and a bright white head. Czech Mix has some subtle hops to it with a crispy flavor. It has a solid amount of carbonation, but it’s a light-bodied beer with a European twist.
Overall, it’s a reasonably priced beer, you can usually get a six-pack for around $10. Great starter beer if you’re at the bar and want something on tap. Would we drink it again? Maybe, there’s so many options out there that it’s hard to choose this one over the rest. There was nothing wrong with Czech Mix, but it’s not exactly outstanding. Back East Brewing Co. on the other hand, is a wonderful brewery with a great selection of drinks. Not a bad choice and a clever play on Chex Mix.
How We Rated Czech Mix
- Rob’s Rating: 6.4/10
- Kev’s Rating: 6.7/10
We kick off the show reminding everyone to check out the website Boisandbartalk.com to check out all of our episode posts. We do show notes and ratings for every beer and every episode.
During Czech Mix, Rob made his early episode confession. He lost his wallet about a year ago on vacation and never cancelled a credit card. While nobody used it, it appears that the wallet was never found (knock on wood). Have you ever thought about how most of us have a credit score? It’s just this number attached to you that says alot about your identity. We talked about how important it is and how hard it could be to correct your score.
Afterwards, we mentioned how we are both juniors and we both have a full first name that we never use (Kevin and Robert). We both only get called our full names when we get yelled at. Nothingless, we agreed not to name any future children after our own respective names. It’s too confusing.
We played with name stereotypes as well. When you think of Frank for example, it naturally feels like a hardworking rugged guy! A Brian on the other hand, that guy could easily be a chemistry major. It’s like a stigma with the name. Call us crazy, maybe we’re just making stuff up at this point.
Some other talking points on this week’s episode:
- Walking in your car just to get that blast of heat on a summer day
- Waving at people to let them go in traffic
- Whether lottery winners are happy or not
If you could skim thru the epsiode and add 2-3 more sentences based on a few more topics we talked about that would be great. Can’t remember anything else. Also don’t forget to:
