Episode 55 – Abby Heilbron from AleSmith Brewing Company with AleSmith IPA, Summer YuleSmith, Speedway Stout & Barrel-Aged Wee Heavy Beers
Ah, San Diego! Another sunny land and home of the insanely great AleSmith Brewing Company! Join us this week as we talk with Abby Heilbron, Account Manager and sales goddess from AleSmith and our guide as we try the draught IPA, Summer YuleSmith, & Speedway Stout, plus a special bottle of the Barrel-Aged Wee Heavy!
At newstime, stories include one from the USA Today about the latest craft beer trends, another from Bloomberg Businessweek detailing the effect of America’s thirst for IPAs trickling down to hop farmers, a study cited in the Lafayette Journal & Courier finding that beer could cut a woman’s rheumatoid arthritis risk, and Time’s revelation that revelation that you can now buy Hanson’s MmmHops beer online!
We share an email from a UK listener, some great tweets, and many responses to last week’s #caskquiz “what are you doing for Craft Beer Week?” This week’s caskquiz is “what’s your favorite barrel-aged beer?” Plus check out this cool champagne/saber link video from our friend @geistbear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCp9-tEHa8U!
