Episode 210 – Jake Taylor from Ballast Point!

The testosterone level is high this week as Jenn is on vacation, so we amp it up with our friend Jake Taylor from Ballast Point! Jake tells us how he got into the business, shares the latest from San Diego, and tastes two excellent beers with us: Sea Rose and Unfiltered Sculpin!

You want some more MegaMergerMania™ ? Well, look no further than Seeking Alpha reporting that Heineken just bought the half of Lagunitas it didn’t control. Next up Motley Fool asks what’s craft beer’s bigger threat? wine, whiskey, weed…or all 3? Then we close with Fox News showing us a  beer made from pee and KIRO uncovering stolen century-old beer bottles being finally returned to a Tacoma brewery!

This week’s #caskquiz asks “what’s the most outrageous ingredient you have had in a beer?” 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.

We love hearing from you! Please send in feedback and beer suggestions by calling us at (919) 502-0280, Tweeting us , following our Instagram or friending us on Untappd, posting on and liking our Facebook page, or emailing us! And please rate & review us in iTunes or Stitcher if you haven’t done so!
