Episode 325 – Robert Owen, Duck Rabbit Brewery!
To help celebrate Duck Rabbit Brewery’s milestone 15th anniversary, we are delighted to welcome back their sales guru and our good friend Robert Owen! Robert fills us in on all the fun at the recent celebration party at the brewery, plus all the news on the latest releases. Then we are so happy to try the Say What? Wood Aged IPA !
Diversity in the craft beer world remains in the news, beginning with Food & Wine arguing that craft beer has a diversity problem according to a Brewers Association report. Next up Forbes brings us objects of desire or: The Pretentious Beer Glass Company’s high gravity set. Then in companion pieces, Time reports that a beer named after the nuclear testing site Bikini Atoll has been called out for insensitivity, while The Dallas Observer opines that the brewery in question is choosing defensiveness over respect. We wind down the week with The Motley Fool showing how craft beer keeps growing as consumers go local, and Vinepair revealing how Big Beer is eyeing Latinx drinkers with targeted ad campaigns and collabs!
Since we recorded early this week, we are carrying over last week’s #caskquiz asking for your take on the Uproxx/Instagram female craft beer influencer uproar!
