Lost On The Ale Trail: The Perfect Pour #222

Not too sure about what is happening with this whole Take Craft Back thing the Brewers Association is doing, but we will talk about it. Some other beer things we will likely get to this episode:

  • A friend of the show now has a special crowler machine.
  • Concert Beer days may be numbered for some of us.
  • It’s not easy ordering craft beer in clubs.
  • One of us is having problems with Untappd.
  • Maybe brewers are forgetting to filter things, things like beer.
  • There is a local Ale Trail happening and it will be a Fresno GetIt. By the way, please forgive the local tangent down Fulton Street, but it does involve beer so it can’t be that bad.

Hope you enjoy. Cheers!

Matt mixed it up in Sacramento at the California Craft Beer Summit and comes back to tell the tale. What the hell does ‘Five in the hand, one in the can’ mean? It means 13 hours of drinking, that’s what.

Also. some other things that may or may not happen: The Independent Beer Seal is going strong, one of us will be “going dark” on social media soon, ABinBev becomes a little less crafty, the Beer Fridge Mic makes a return, breweries are making ‘grocery store exclusive ‘beers and many more craft beer things.
