Hurrah For The Sour Hour

Great podcast with plenty of technical content, guest appearances from the best in the industry... entertaining and easy to listen to!

I have never made it through more than a few minutes of any episode of the Session. Blergh.

Rejoiner suggestion : Found a Child by Ballin’ Jack. Options throughout... at ~0:09, 1:12, 1:42 (!!!)

More rare barrel promo

Don’t listen to that other guy, if anything you should be dedicating an additional 61% of your air time to promoting the rare barrel. The session sucks. Play family reunion by blink 182 (you’ll have to loop it) as a re-joiner... you won’t do it, Scott!

Cringe-worthy creepyness

Great info on sour beer production from Jay but that creepy mysogynistic pig ‘Moscow’ makes it really hard to enjoy the show.
