Episode 209 – Martin Roper, CEO of The Boston Beer Company!
Chip had to travel a long way, and it was totally worth it to do his second interview with Martin Roper, CEO of The Boston Beer Company! Martin talks about the latest with Sam Adams, Angry Orchard and Twisted Tea. Plus he discusses his planned retirement in 2018 and offers his thoughts about where craft beer is headed in the future. Here at home, we sample Sam Adams Fresh as Helles, Rebel IPA Reborn, and Rebel Juiced!
Then the MegaMergerMania™ continues via The Asheville Citizen-Times revealing that Wicked Weed is entering a partnership with Anheuser-Busch. Next up Tribunist tells us that a study finds two pints of beer are more effective than OTC pain relievers, Mashable shows us that you can now buy a 1,000 pack of beer in Finland, and we close with Treehugger pouring us a beer made from recycled bread!
This week’s #caskquiz asks “what’s the most craft beer you ever bought at one time?” and we are looking for your submissions for this month’s #caskcontest: send us your best photo featuring Sierra Nevada Pale Ale! All entries are due by May 31st.
