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.
Big Dog, aka “XL Perro”, joins us this week to talk about Buffalo’s craft beer scene and living in San Diego during the rise of the OG, San Diego Brewers. We also drink a lot of great beers, look out for some new beer releases and talk about how freaking hard it is to open a brewery.
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.
