The politics of beer! Is that even a thing? It is this week with political reporter/beer writer Will Doran from the Raleigh News & Observer! Will talks about his passion for great local beers and dishes a little political chat on the side. We also treat him to several tasty NC Beers including Starpoint’s Hipster or Hobo Pale Ale, Olde Hickory’s Redeemer, and D9’s Viking Fraoch!
We go political in the news too covering some city issues in Petaluma stemming from the craft beer boom, check out the trendy craft beer scene in Mexico, and discover more shipwreck beer from Finland. We also explore what consumers really consider local and visit some breweries who enjoy the advantages of staying small. Plus we learn how to catch a whale!
Last week our #caskquiz was “what was your favorite beer in college?” and this week we want to know “What beer needs to be in the news?”
