Traveling Nurses send us beer, we drink it. A Beer with Atlas is a weekly podcast that highlights beers and breweries across the country. Over the years, we’ve discovered that our traveling nurses love visiting breweries during their down time. Ironically, we like to visit breweries during our down time. Each week we will feature one brewery suggested by our nurses. We’ll try their beer, talk about the brewery, talk about the styles of beer, and have a lot of fun. Cheers!

Major Lager from Brew Kettle Brewery - A Beer With Atlas 80

3/4/2020
You don't need the might of Jobu behind you to enjoy this Major Lager beer from The Brew Kettle Brewery out of Ohio. The crew forgets about the curveball as they throw straight heaters down the middle to discuss the magic of a cold beer and baseball -- so much baseball! Our thanks to Thomas Piper from Scrub Squad 1978 for sending us this gem of 80's pop-culture that's wrapped up in a tribute to baseball and beer. We promise we didn't put snot on the can, but we've got Atlas uniforms and...

Jubilberry and Little Boss from Blue Owl Brewing - A Beer With Atlas 79

2/26/2020
We sample Blue Owl Brewing with Jubilberry, a sour winter ale, and Little Boss, a sour session wheat. We dive into these Texas sours and discuss Houston trivia, the music of Willie Nelson, and even Willie's son Lukas Nelson. Our team enjoyed these brews even though they offer some flavor profiles that would normally be outside of our beer reviewer preferences. We also feel it's important to mention that Blue Owl has beers named: Van Dayum! (sour red ale), Can't Quit You (sour hazy IPA),...

The team discusses the history of Philly, the pop culture significance of Rocky Balboa, Soul Music from the heart of Philadelphia, and the ever-important Philly Cheesesteak.

Big Lost Mead - A Beer With Atlas 73

1/22/2020
This week we take in a little of the sweet life as we mix things up and sample a bottle of Wild Man Mead from Big Lost Meadery. The sweetness of mead comes from its honey base, but this brew from Big Lost also packs in some hops in its crafting process for a smooth drink that belies its scruffy namesake. Help us celebrate the power of the bee to add some variety to our drinking shelves in this week's episode of "A Beer With Atlas".

We try War Elephant, a beer collab from Oliphant Brewing & Eastlake Brewing - A Beer With Atlas 72

1/15/2020
This is a bit of a milestone for us. In this episode we review "War Elephant", which is the very first beer collaboration we've covered on "A Beer With Atlas". This brew was a collab between the Oliphant and Eastlake Brewing companies. This pink pachyderm packed a very unique flavor that we liked, but is hard to pin down, doubtless this was the result of the two breweries' different approaches to #craftbeer. It boasts "smoked sea salt gose brewed with guajillo chiles and cacao nibs" -- yeah,...

We try Pluff Mud Porter from Holy City Brewing - A Beer With Atlas 71

1/7/2020
We dive into the marshes of South Carolina and come up with a refreshing 6 pack of this Pluff Mud Porter from Holy City Brewing. This beer is a classic American Porter and a popular one for Holy City's efforts in the Charleston market. If you're in the area, this is one you'll probably want to try, along with any of the other beers this regional brewer has available. But what is "Pluff Mud"? We wondered that, too. We liked how they explained it. Here's what the brewery says on their site:...

Happy New Year - Clean out the Beer Fridge - A Beer With Atlas 70

1/1/2020
There are many things sacred to us at Atlas HQ, but perhaps one of the most carefully guarded is the Beer Fridge. It's under lock and key. Seriously. In a separate room hidden in the far back of the office. But sometimes, just sometimes, our team must make the ultimate sacrifice and clean out the beer fridge in order to make room for more beer in the new year. It is therefore with a spring in our step that our team of beer imbibers take this heavy burden upon themselves, and sample a wide...

This festive ale brings a unique holiday tone to the season that we found as enjoyable as your company at our table. Aww.
