Podcast suitable for even Down State Brewers (DSB)

My Dearest Listeners,

Allow me to regale thee with a tale of libations divine, conveyed through the auditory realms by the wondrous "The Beer Temple Podcast." Verily, 'tis a marvel hosted by the esteemed Chris Quinn, proprietor of The Beer Temple Bottle Shop, and the venerable Mike Schallau, the mastermind behind the brewing alchemy at Is/Was Brewing.

From the very moment the phonograph begins to spin their melodic voices, a symphony of hops and barley doth dance within the ears, transporting the imbiber to an ethereal realm of beer knowledge. 'Tis as if one hath stumbled upon a hidden cellar, where the amber nectar of the gods flows freely, and the wisdom of brewmasters cascades like a bubbling brook.

Chris Quinn, a maestro of malt, leads the discourse with a blend of erudition and conviviality. His passion for the hoppy elixirs is as evident as the froth upon a freshly poured pint. Each episode, he delves into the depths of the beer universe, sharing insights, anecdotes, and the secrets of the brewing artisans.

Alongside him stands the sagacious Mike Schallau, a brewer of unparalleled skill, whose tales of ale-crafting resonate like the notes of a well-played fiddle. His wisdom, garnered from years of fermenting magic, adds a richness to the podcast akin to the finest barrel-aged stout.

The duo's camaraderie is akin to the bond betwixt barley and water, inseparable and essential. Together, they traverse the landscape of beer, from the hop-laden hills to the malt-kissed valleys, leaving no keg unturned in their quest for brewing enlightenment.

In the parlance of our time, I declare "The Beer Temple Podcast" a five-star gem, a beacon guiding thirsty souls through the labyrinth of ales and lagers. Forsooth, if thou art a devotee of malted wonders and seek a podcast that doth quench thy curiosity, look no further. Let the Beer Temple be thy sanctuary, and may the effervescence of knowledge flow endlessly.

With frothy regards.
