What new bourbon are we pumped about? Which hiking trail are we exploring? Why is the next supercar so cool? The Manual is dedicated to helping men live a more engaged life. Each week, our editors and guests get together for a round-table discussion about what’s new, exciting, and unique in the men’s lifestyle world. So pop open your favorite brew, step into your man cave, and start streaming. Shout out to Portland-based No Kind of Rider for our intro/exit music.
This week, Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast comes to you from The Multnomah Whisk(e)y Library in Portland, Oregon, to discuss all things whiskey. The Multnomah Whiskey Library has over 1,700 different types of spirits on its shelves. Colin Howard and Stephen Price, both from the Library, sit down with us to answer our many and varied questions about the library itself and the whiskey wonders within it.
The group for this episode is completed by host Greg Nibler; Editor-in-Chief, Cator Sparks; Spirits Editor, Sam Slaughter; Associate Editor, Chase McPeak; and content creator Jake Rossman.
The conversation ranges the genesis of Multnomah Whiskey Library to tips on how to build your very own own whiskey library. The question of picking your “desert island whiskey” comes up with some uprising answers, and the guys emphasize that taste is more important than reputation.
