Episode 85 – Yule (and Samhain) Cheer with AleSmith & Foothills!
After all the great guests the past few weeks, we lock the doors and take a breather at the bar. The beers are all for us (and you!) with a hidden treat from Samhain and a couple of yuletide delights! AleSmith gives us two – Evil Dead Red that we had been saving for the right moment and the all-new Winter YuleSmith! Plus we get the final Foothills IPA of the month for 2015, December’s Miss Elle Toe.
Holiday news abounds for us and includes cool history and beer + music! We start with Time and the news that Delta will begin selling craft beer on its flights, then move to Yahoo News with a trip to colonial times and a Virginia brewery tapping a 300-year-old beer recipe. Next up is Thrillist relating what your Norcal beer of choice says about you, followed by The Daily Mail on a rare six-litre Methuselah of Champagne-style beer going on sale in London, and we wrap (not rap!) with Yahoo Music and a story on the vocalist from Swedish band In Flames bringing his own beer to the party.
Last week our #caskquiz was “where do you get your up-to-the-minute beer world info? A blog? Podcast? Local brewery? This week we are asking “what is your fave Christmas/Holiday TV or movie special?”
