Episode 72 – Aubrey Herbert & Oktoberfests!
Guess who just happened to wander into our little bar? Old friend of the show Aubrey Herbert that’s who! She made it just in time to try some killer Oktoberfest beers with us. The lineup includes Hofbräu Dunkel, Dinkel Acker Oktoberfest, Starpoint Brewing Märzen, and of course Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest!
Chip is back with the news for you this week. We start off with Deadspin advising us to stop whining about pumpkin beer, move to The USA Today regarding a beer geeks’ dream: a brewing co-op, and then press on to CNET letting us know that beer drones are back, this time with Google Glass. We next tackle 2 Anheuser-Busch InBev stories, one in Businessweek telling us that Budweiser wants you to buy a Facebook friend a beer and another in the The Huffington Post about what happened in a small resort town in Colorado leaving Bud Light fans stranded there. We finish up the week with a thoughtful piece in All About Beer by our friend John Holl asking what beer would be if it were invented today and a niece story in The Chippewa Herald about Jake Leinenkugel’s impending retirement.
We share the responses to last week’s #caskquiz “what is the freshest beer you have tried?” and this week we ask you what music+beer event that you have attended was your fave?
