Get those taste buds ready, cask nation! Episode 41 of Tales From the Cask is a tasty one! In this episode we are sampling Foothills Sexual Chocolate 2014 and Evil Twin Mini Dingo Imperial Stout with Habaneros!
Joined by Greg Hirsh, beer maverick for a Chapel Hill NC specialty food and beer retailer, we have a great time at the bar sipping on some rare brews. Greg has a unique approach to selling beer, interweaving his love for history and his love for beer to create a learning experience. Greg tells us about his journey into the beer business, his approach to selling beers, books that he recommends, his involvement with Fullsteam Brewery, his home brewing experiences, and more!
In our news segment this week we share stories about a lawsuit over the use of the word Champagne and how “the Champagne of Beers” avoids any trouble, electronic tongues being used to taste beer, Anheuser-Busch InBev’s acquisition of Blue Point Brewing, and an update to the beer drone story we brought you last week.
In our feedback segment we share your responses to last week’s cask quiz question, talk about Jenn’s snack stadium that she made for the big football game, and answer a call from the Caskline!
This week’s cask quiz question is, “What spring beer are you most excited about?”
