    For this showcase Carlin and Rebecca dig into the origin and beers of one of the newer Vermont breweries causing a buzz in the craft beer industry. Heavily focused on hazy IPAs, but experimenting with so much more, this brewery deserves some attention.

A week without Brewtal Battle...

I love this podcast and the hosts and the snippet of a song at the end of each podcast makes me smile. The format is great, the length is perfect as it allows enough time to get into several beers but it isn’t too long. All in all a podcast well worth your listening time whether you’re into beer or not, more so if you are.

Love the Blind Tasting

This podcast is supremely interesting due to the nature of the blind tasting. I think it's a unique take on the idea of a beer podcast, and their "Brewtal" take on things certainly shows their impartiality. As others have mentioned, there are many examples of beers that they pan during the blind tasting that they have mentioned liking previously which can always be funny. I especially like their Decisode Brewtal Battle Royales.

While the general level of beer knowledge of the hosts isn't as high as other beer podcasters, they are learning along with their audience which also has entertainment value. The blind tastings are what make set this podcast apart.
