Every Wednesday, Market Street Wineshop and DJ Jeff Sweatman get together to talk about all things wine and beer on 106.1 The Corner. The piece airs between 4:00 and 4:30 pm. For your convenience, and driving safety, we post a list of the wines discussed here. This week, Clinton Johnston sat down to talk about big, bad IPAs.

To learn more about the wonderful world of Beer, join Clinton every Wednesday at 5:00pm at the Market Street Wineshop Downtown for a beer tasting!
Stone Ruination IPA
So called because of the "ruinous" effect on your palate! This massive hop monster has a wonderfully delicious and intensely bitter flavor on a refreshing malt base. One taste and you can easily see why we call this brew "a liquid poem to the glory of the hop!" Those who seek, crave and rejoice in beers with big, bold, bitter character will find true nirvana in Stone Ruination IPA! -- Stone Brewery
Troegs Nugget Nectar
"Squeeze those hops for all they’re worth and prepare to pucker up: Nugget Nectar Ale, will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops. Starting with the same base ingredients of our flagship HopBack Amber Ale, Nugget Nectar intensifies the malt and hop flavors to create an explosive hop experience." -- Troegs Brewery
Lagunitas Hop Stoopid Ale
"For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!" -- Lagunitas Brewery
Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA
"Esquire Magazine calls our 90 Minute IPA., "perhaps the best I.P.A. in America." An Imperial I.P.A. brewed to be savored from a snifter. A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. 90 Minute IPA was our first continually-hopped beer, which is a method of hopping that allows for a pungent, but not crushing hop flavor. Since introducing the world to the continual-hopping method with our 90 Minute IPA, we've since released a continually-hopped 60 Minute IPA, 120 Minute IPA and even a 75 Minute IPA (a cask-conditioned blend of 60 & 90 Minute IPAs)." -- Dogfish Head Brewery
