Episode 314 – Kris Harper with DuClaw Brewing!
After our vacations, we are both back, tanned, rested and ready for summer beer time! Who better to kick off meteorological summer than our good friend Kris Harper with DuClaw Brewing? Kris shares the latest news from the brewery and Baltimore, and he has a stellar lineup for us to taste! The treats include Haze of Glory NE IPA, Dad Bod DIPA, My My Key Lime Pie Sour, Sour Me Unicorn Farts, and Sour Me Carolina!
Lots of news piled up while we were away! First up is VinePair (thanks Steve!) reporting that beer provides more jobs, wages, and economic impact than wine or spirits, with a follow up story from OregonLive providing a deeper dive on those numbers about beer’s economic impacts. Next up The Charlotte Observer tells us that N.C. breweries and distributors have reached an historic new accord that will benefit beer drinkers in the state. Then we have Brewbound (thanks Michael!) revealing that the TTB is slapping Constellation Brands with a $420,000 fine, followed by Food & Wine’s list of the cities that have the most breweries per capita. We wind down the week via The Associated Press offering up craft beer with wild flavors of candy, pickles and … steak, and Fortune showing that to combat food waste, two Brooklyn businesses teamed up to brew bagel beer!
We took off a week for the #caskquiz while we were on vacation! We have a new one this week asking what’s the wild beer flavoring you want to try? Anything goes!
