Episode 73 – Robert Owen from Duck Rabbit!
We head west to Tony’s own bar this week since Chip was in Mills River, NC at the new Sierra Nevada brewery! Amazingly, Robert Owen from NC brewery Duck Rabbit Brewery found his way and brought us some killer beers! We get to try their Märzen, Hoppy Bunny American Black Ale, and Milk Stout.
Jenn and Tony take on the newsreading this week (at least Chip did some research for them!) and begin with The New York Times on SABMiller’s rejected bid for Heineken, head to the Minnesota Public Radio Blog with a story on the NFL player controversies and the power of Big Beer, and check in with Yahoo Food regarding how the South does craft beer. We then go to the Great Lakes Echo to hear how burgeoning beer brewers are good for barley, then over to The Union Leader with a story to bring beer lovers pleasant dreams, and then wrap up down in The Miami Herald with an inspiring tale of a hard-to-find brew and the ultimate beer run.
We had lots of feedback this week! Plus we share the responses to last week’s #caskquiz “what music+beer event that you have attended was your fave?” and this week we ask “if you just summited Mount Everest, what beer would you reach for?”
