Episode 61 – The Tales Tankard International Beers Competition
After Tony & Jenn’s live remote and Chip’s coastal excursion last week, we are back in the Sunny Lands in our little bar! And we know you are following the World Cup, so we celebrate with our own Tales Tankard™ beer competition! The challengers are Palma Louca and Xingu from host Brazil, Germany’s Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen, France’s La Goutte D’Or Chateau Rouge, Belgium’s Rodenbach Caractère Rouge, and from the Netherlands La Trappe Quadrupel. Who advances? Listen and find out!
We do a deep dive in the interwebs for the news this week, starting with FinancesOnline’s look at beer prices in different countries around the world, the USA Today examining colleges considering beer sales in stadiums, a story from CardRatings.com checking on how long people can do without various things in their lives, and finish up with a report from Brewbound regarding dastardly shenigans in the global aluminum market and a House bill to address them.
We have several tweets this week with responses to last week’s #caskquiz “what’s your favorite #sundayfunday or brunch beer?” And please reply to this week’s #caskquiz “what is the oldest beer in your cellar and how old is it?”
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!
