WARNING! You may want to find a Hamm’s beer after listening to this.
Crack it open! Let’s have some beers! At least listen to us have some beers with Hops Cascade! Yep, Hops Cascade shows up to drink with us. Who is Hops Cascade? He’s nobody, we made him up. But he is still in this episode.
Speaking of the episode, we are going to have all our usual hang-out fun with our craft beers, we love them so. We are going to talk about some craft beer culture news (good job Modern Times). We are going to listen to people call us and make fun of us. We are going to talk about beer releases you should look out. We are going to drink gold.
The Brewers Association has a new Independent badge for indie brewers to use and beer social media is freaking the hell out. We give our thoughts on the logo and talk about the reality of changing your label to display the independent badge.
We also talk about Russian River selling their original brewing facility and Societe Brewing bottling more things!
Drinking. Don’t forget the drinking. We do drinking. Beer drinking.
Hey, there is also beer releases to Look Out For, find out what beers we were caught drinking last week and what hop regularly used in IPAs that needs to go.
Thank you. Thank you for hanging with us. We are here for the 200th time. Time to have fun.
This is what we should have done in the first place. Mike Cruz, top pour beer geek and industry dude at Tioga Sequoia Brewing, comes back to the show to celebrate 200 episodes with us. Lots of special bottle openings and even a special crowler or two. We also passionately talk about all the Buyout Beer news, have lots of great voicemails and lots of fun having.
Steven from Zack’s Brewing fills in for a missing member of the show this week. But hey, that’s cool because Steven may or may not have an announcement for us and the question of “What does it take to open up a brewery?” is going to be a relevant one.
Plus, all kinds of beer nerd things are going to happen. Things like, listeners calling us to let everyone know what their beer scene is like, we drink all the beers including the “new to town” Revision Brewing and more craft beer FUN. Because beer is FUN.
One of us is declaring double IPAs to be over. Done. We also explore what it’s like working and all day festival at a beer garden, Untappd updates, things are happening in Fresno’s burgeoning beer scene and more loose beer geek goodness.
Plus some interesting beer releases to look out for, listener questions and plenty of beer tasting!
