Episode 123 – Joe Ovies 99.9 The Fan and WRAL Sportsfan with Sierra, Olde Hickory & D9!
We go old-school radio this week with our special guest Joe Ovies from 99.9 The Fan and WRAL Sportsfan. Plus he is also part of the 919 Beer podcast crew! Joe talks radio and beer, and tries some great new beers with us: D9, Hakuna Matata International IPA, Olde Hickory Oktoberfest, and Sierra Nevada Vienna Lager!
We travel all the way to Japan to bring you news this week with our first story via Asahi Shinbum reporting that Japan plans to lower the tax on beer and increase the rate for ‘happoshu’. Next up is Thrillist’s beer ranking of every state in the USA, followed by Fortune asking is organic craft beer really worth drinking, and we close with The Washington Post’s admonition to stop ‘aging’ that hoppy beer. It’s only getting worse.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “what breakfast food should be infused in the next hot beer?” and this week we are asking “what retro beer do you wish you had access to for your tailgating?”
