Episode 319 – Danielle Auslander and Ben Mack from Lagunitas!
We are always getting to try new brews from our friends at Lagunitas, and this week we get some brewery talking along with the sampling! Our friends Danielle Auslander and Ben Mack join us at the bar to reveal the newest treats from Petaluma and give us the skinny on cans! And the beers are amazing: Phase Change Seasonally Unexpected Wet-Hopped Juicy Ale and Little Sumpin’ Hazy!
An old friend of the show is in the news this week, as Vinepair (thanks Steve!) is chatting with Rodenbach brewing legend (and our guest at the bar back in Eps 101 and 128 from 2015) Rudi Ghequire! Then it’s time for the numbers with The Motley Fool asking can Anheuser-Busch InBev show craft beer the way back to growth? Next The Hawk reports that craft brewers attempting to win over lager drinkers in South Africa, followed by Food & Wine’s reporter who got a beer spa treatment that was transcendent. We close up this week with Uproxx profiling ‘beer influencers’ who are actually worth following on Instagram!
For last week’s #caskquiz we wanted to know what you think about a German brewer building a massive brewery in the US? Crazy? Or crazy like a fox? This week we want to know whom do you follow on social media that everyone else should be? And on which social media platform?
We so love hearing from you!
