Episode 182 – Halloween/Samhain Hops Costume Party with Wil Cooper & Coronado Brewing!
What a great time this week – it’s our first-ever costume party with Wil Cooper from Coronado Brewing! We are dressed up as our favorite hops, and Wil joins the fun – you will have to listen or check out our homepage or Facebook to find out which ones we are! Wil also brings along some special treats only available in San Diego at the Coronado brewpub: High Fideli-Tea Belgian Wit, Waste the Days IPA, Belgian Dark Strong, Rush of Hops IPA, Snowy Plover Winter IPA, and Stupid Stout Imperial Stout!
There is too much news this week so we had to really cull to the core! We begin with Men’s Journal asking is the FDA trying to kill craft beer? followed by The Wall Street Journal reporting trouble brewing in the craft beer industry and then The New York Times shows us a self-driving truck’s first mission: a 120-mile beer run. Next up is Yours for Good Fermentables (via @geistbear) revealing ‘craft’ beer spies of 1982, then Mashable reports that you can help save the Great Barrier Reef by drinking beer, and we wind up with VinePair’s list of the 10 best Reddit shower thoughts about beer!
This week and last week to go along with our Samhain hops costume party, for the #caskquiz we are asking you to send us pictures of your Halloween/Samhain costumes!
