    Audioblog: Lagers And Quads (and IPAs) In Atlanta

    When we talk about great beer cities, the name Atlanta rarely comes up. After a visit to five excellent breweries in town—New Realm, Bold Monk, Monday Night, Halfway Crooks, and Elsewhere—I was convinced it should.

    Audioblog: Kirin Just Bought Bell's Brewery. Why Is Bell's Concealing That Fact?

    Larry Bell announced that he was selling his 36-year-old brewery, Michigan’s Bell’s, today. The language was weird and somewhat concealed the actual details. Yet unlike so many bloodless M&A announcements, the reason may have everything to do with the difficulty of this sale.

Since our last show, however, the emails have been flying. We have so many that we’ll devote the whole show to them today. You are a smart and observant bunch, and these are great questions.

Fun and informative

One of my favorite beer shows. Good combination of good information and fun interaction. I love how most of the shows center around a topic, and aren’t just “how did you get into brewing” interviews. Great stuff!

Love these guys!

Content does a wonderful job elevating the appreciation of beer. As a home brewer, most of what I listen to on podcasts relates to process, but this podcast always gets me excited about the appreciation of our beverage of choice. Even my 17 year old likes to listen in the car. Thank you for giving me a platform to parent from. Truly that’s what makes living in Portland great!
