Episode 217 – Dusty Howe and Fred Hillenbrand from Upland Brewing!
We get a visit from Indiana this week with Dusty Howe and Fred Hillenbrand from Upland Brewing! Dusty and Fred tell us the history of the brewery, which is celebrating 20 years in 2017, tease the latest releases, and share some incredible sour ales with us: Sour Reserve, Cherry, and Cauldron!
In the news we start with a sorta MegaMergerMania™ item via The Motley Fool reporting that AB InBev has a clever new marketing strategy in the home-brew market. Next up we head to Tony’s old stomping grounds through The Utica Observer-Dispatch which is asking if a proposed beer museum is golden or flat? We then have The Bulletin (Central Oregon!) positing why it’s so hard to figure out how old that 6-pack of beer is and we go retro with MSN revealing 5 things you didn’t know about Zima, everyone’s favorite ‘90s mistake that’s back for 2017!
We have your responses to last week’s #caskquiz which asked “have you tried any of the Beer Camp Across the World Beers yet? What are your favorites?” and this week we want to know if you think there should be a standard way to tell how fresh your beer is and if so what’s your idea?
We so love hearing from you!
