We’re heading over to the left coast today with a little veggie beer review. This one is from Stone Brewing Company’s Stochasticity Project – Your Father Smelt of Elderberries!

Setting the rules for this brew at “something close to what would have been brewed back in ye medieval times” and taking one of the more famous lines from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” let’s see if this beer has the goods or tastes like a hamster!

Massive Beer Reviews is an award-winning YouTube beer review, brewery, and culture show based out of Northeastern Pennsylvania. With almost 20 years in the craft beer game, we aim to cover all styles, but pull no punches when it comes to our opinions on the beers we cover.

Beer is inherently a subjective subject, so while we make enjoy something more than you or vice versa, we can – many more times than not – tell the difference and differentiate between a beer we don’t like and a beer that is made badly, which is typically illustrated in the reviews.

While we take our show, comments, and approach seriously, we also know a stick-up-the-butt viewpoint on the lovely art that is beer is not what we want to portray, nor something we would want to watch ourselves, so keep on the lookout for blue language, random silliness, maybe a little bit of drunkenness, and some headstrong opinions.

We encourage watchers’ input and love a good debate, so if you see or hear something you love, hate, or anything in-between, feel free to reach out to us in the comments section, through e-mail, or on any of the various social media platforms listed below!
