Episode 249 – Greg Leone from Roak Brewing!
This week we are so excited to introduce an old friend from a new partner brewery – it’s Greg Leone from Michigan’s Roak Brewing! Greg gives us all the skinny on the doings in Royal Oak and tells us how much he misses living in NC! Plus: shorts! Then we get to sample three crazy good brews: Live Wire IPA, Devil Dog Oatmeal Stout, and HopGazer IPA!
Craft beer and health are at the top of the newshour via Fox News revealing that craft beer drinkers have healthier habits than non-craft drinkers. Next up The Financial Times reports that the US craft beer slowdown has sent the hops market from boom to bust. We close with The Chicago Tribune showing us that craft beer icon Three Floyds’ brewery will triple in size and The USA Today shining the spotlight on craft brewers who are seeking to involve more African Americans.
Then we have your responses to last week’s #caskquiz which asked “what’s your go-to beer after your workout?” This week we want to know “do you do things like drink diet non-alcoholic beverages or eat low-calorie foods to allow yourself the space to drink craft beers? If so what?”
