Episode 95 – Snowy Days with Baird, Ishii, & Stone, plus Carolina Brewing and Starpoint!
Chip returns to the snowy lands and the team stays warm in the bar with killer brews this week! We taste the collaboration beer Baird/Ishii/Stone Green Tea IPA, CBC Groundhog Day Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, and Starpoint Instant Karma Porter.
Do we scan the globe for news? You betcha! How about starting with Comic Book Resources and the announcement there about Rogue’s Hellboy Right Hand of Doom Red Ale? We then move to cnet listing a five-pack of beer apps to find great new brews, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch revealing that A-B dropped its opposition to a North Carolina craft brewer’s Natty trademark, the US Census Trade Blog Global Reach offering the latest numbers on beer imports and exports, and the San Diego Union-Times on how hot SD’s beer scene has become. We round out the news with The St. Cloud Times detailing the incredible demand for barrels by craft brewers, The Independent announcing London’s first ever ‘beer week, and wind up with NPR on the secret life of a phys ed teacher.
Last week our #caskquiz was “What beer do you want to see make the move to cans?” This week we are asking “do you keep a stash of beer in storage for weather emergencies?”
