Episode 150 – Jennifer Hauke from DraftLine Technologies Plus Anchor, Ballast Point & Coronado!
We turn 150 this week and celebrate with Jennifer Hauke, Principal of DraftLine Technologies! We had a really great time talking about Jennifer’s family history in Detroit with draft line cleaning, the evolution of her company, and the development of its great new program called SmartSystem that tracks draft line cleanliness! And since no party is complete without sampling taste treats, we go Californian and sample Anchor Meyer Lemon Lager, Ballast Point Watermelon Dorado, and Coronado Barrel Aged Stupid Stout!
We really had to cull the beer news for you! We lead with another installment of MegaMergerMania™ courtesy of The Tampa Bay Times reporting that Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing sold to a venture capital firm, followed by Market Watch positing that craft beer is now drowning in brands and products, and then Chemical & Engineering News revealing both that alcohol-free beer may boost breast milk supply and that a new enzyme strips brews of buttery notes. We finish up with Metro offering 14 signs you’re becoming a craft beer bore and The Guardian on the Californian craft beer brewed from wastewater.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “what quaffling tricks have you practiced? in moderation!!” And this week we want to know what signs have you seen someone show that they are a craft beer bore?”
