Episode 294 – Rich Greene from the NC Craft Brewers Guild!
Craft beer is still growing gangbusters in our neck of the woods, and we this week we have our friend Rich Greene, Executive Director/Beer Czar from the NC Craft Brewers Guild to talk all about NC beer! Rich tells us about his early days at the Guild, the joys of working the NC State Fair, and tries a couple of NC beers with us! Those taste treats are Sierra Nevada Sierraveza and Foothills Spirit IPA!
There’s exciting news to begin the week (thanks Steve!) as our very own hometown of Raleigh makes Number 6 on VinePair’s list of the world’s top 10 beer destinations for 2019! Next we have The Week’s recap of Stephen Colbert’s revelation that the government shutdown is coming for your beer, followed by The Mirror reporting that Icelandair is launching a new craft beer for passengers, and then Boston.com reveals that a New England state was just named the craft beer capital of the U.S. We close up the bar with The Las Vegas Review-Journal’s profile of guitarist and craft beer entrepreneur Keri Kelli talking rock ’n’ roll and beer and Westword’s ten bold predictions for craft beer in 2019!
Last week we wondered “what are your New Year’s (Beers) resolutions?” Dovetailing with the news this week, we want to know “what are your big beer predictions for 2019?”
