One of the main purposes of the show is to create an independent craft brewery awareness and to help inform the audience (especially those that don’t drink craft beer) about what craft beer is all about and that it is not your father’s canned, flavorless classic. We will upload new episodes every two weeks and in between uploads we will also upload a smaller series within the channel.

The smaller series will feature two different series with the first being called Craft Beer Tips With The Voyager that will be about 5 minutes in length and will go over different facts, stats and information about craft beer and the industry as a whole. The second series will be Tasting With The Voyager which will feature myself (The Voyager) sampling new and rare releases. The smaller series is set to be released on a weekly basis.

Go ahead and check out the Craft Beer Voyager Show on YouTube and become one of the first subscribers! The intro video is set to be uploaded and released sometime in the next few days and will keep you updated. Until then go ahead and sip, savor and enjoy! Cheers and God bless!

Prairie Artisan Ale’s Prison Rodeo Bring Both Citrus Hops And Coffee Together In Harmony

Prison Rodeo; a hopped up intriguing coffee ale by Prairie Artisan Ale. Aromas of citrus hops and orange blossoms with freshly ground coffee beans following along as well as hints of hazelnut. The beer is quite intriguing as it is not like your typical coffee brew with a darker tint, but rather provides a lighter color with a unsettled haze lingering about. Each sip presents strong hop bitterness with a citrus zesty flavor and medium coffee roast notes with a slight honey like sweetness showing up, and a bold alcohol warmth finish. Overall a delicious beer, but beware as the ABV level is set at a high 9.5% and a few too many can land you in a prison rodeo. Cheers!
