Episode 239 – Bryan D. Roth plus Full Sail, Sierra Nevada, and Wicked Weed!
You demanded it, and now he’s back in his triumphal return: beer writer Bryan D. Roth! Bryan relates his latest adventures in beer and real life and how they sometimes intersect. Plus he samples some super brews with us: Full Sail 8 Pound Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada Alpha Hop Society Barrel-Aged Sour Brown Ale, and Wicked Weed Barrel-Aged Milk and Cookies!
The news keeps on coming, and it begins this week with The Washington Post showing us that more bars are booting corporate beer from their taps and doubling down on craft. Next we have The Denver Post introducing an organization that wants the craft beer community to do more than just drink responsibly, followed by another instance of MegaMergerMania™ via The Denver Business Journal reporting that a Spanish beer maker is buying 30% of Colorado’s Avery Brewing. We close with Food & Wine singing the praises of the news that The Flaming Lips and Dogfish Head are collaborating on a beer, and Gizmodo revealing that Google has decided that Android users deserve full beers!
We have your responses to last week’s #caskquiz which asked “who your dream brewing collaborators would be and what style of beer would they make?” This week we ask ”what beer-related emoji would you like to see?”
