    B2B Q&A pt. 1

    We used to tackle listener questions on a regular basis, but over the years the episodes kept getting longer and longer. We miss the listener interaction, and we miss giving away $20 Binny’s gift cards, so periodically we do these all Q&A episodes. It’s time for us to A your Qs.

    More Damn Fine Coffee Beers

    More Damn Fine Coffee Beers

    Coffee: the original beer adjunct before that became a dirty word. We only just did a coffee episode in late 2022 but there are so many coffee stouts being released, especially in the winter months, that it makes sense to do another one.
    This time in addition to drinking coffee beer, and the coffee these beers are made with, Roger has baked several cookies that pair great with the beer and the coffee.
    Half Acre Big Hugs  Lagunitas Willettized Coffee Stout  Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout  Dogfish Head Wake Up World Wide Stout  If you have a question for the Barrel to Bottle Crew, email us at comments@binnys.com, or reach out to us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Great podcast

Loved the Miriam and Greene distillery episode. Texas whiskey is on the climb!

Enjoyable, like listening to grouchy relatives

Most of my enjoyment is derived from the episodes where the Binny’s team tastes and describes a range of alcohols, or pairs them with foods (the junk food episode was inspired). I like these because there’s so much stuff out there that there’s no way I can buy and taste it myself.

The interviews with industry pros are pleasant (occasionally too technical for me to follow) but not as fun as hearing the podcast staff roast each other.

Great podcast

Always entertaining and they are truly professionals who clearly have a passion for making sure we’re all getting better food, beer, wine and spirits experiences
