Episode 20 – Boston Beer Company’s Eric McCrory
Greetings from the sunny lands, it’s Tales From the Cask Episode 20! In this milestone episode, we are pleased to have our first returning guest, Eric McCrory from Boston Beer Company. We share some stories with Eric and have a great time as always. Our discussion includes a study that predicts the craft beer boom may be slowing, our thoughts on Alchemy & Science’s acquisition of Coney Island Craft Beer Brands and an interesting news story about Purdue University opening up a new craft brew bar on campus. Tony and Jenn give the inside details from our inaugural hops harvest this week, and they explain more about the local beer Carolina Brewing Company is helping us brew.
Eric tells us some of the perks and insights from working inside Boston Beer Company, shares information about his new role as he relocates to Chicago, and talks about the people and beers he’ll miss most from North Carolina. In our feedback segment, we answer questions about beer freshness, fun ways to celebrate Raleigh Beer Week, and share a listener’s tweet about Angry Orchard’s Crisp Apple and Apple Ginger Ciders.
