Episode 38 - Specialty Beer Retailer Extraordinaire Ted Gross, Firestone Walker, Gigantic Brewing, & Evil Twin
Greetings, Caskers! In episode 38 we are visited by Ted Gross, owner of a specialty beer shop in Raleigh, NC! Ted gives us all the details about how he broke into the beer business and started a unique style of beer retail. He shares his views on the issues facing retailers, dealing with the public, and what he loves most about selling beer. He also answers some listener questions about the Pittsburgh Steelers, the perfect mustache, Russian River, Hill Farmstead, and more! We also try some killer brews including Gigantic Brewing's Beer #14 The Future is Now, Firestone Walker Wookey Jack, and Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Doughnut.
In the news this week, we have some great articles about German beer’s existential crisis, a funny video for people who love craft beer but hate silly craft beer names, America’s first Trappist beer, and a very cool story about Peyton Manning receiving a special gift from Left Hand Brewing Company.
In our feedback section section we share listener responses to our question about Carolina Brewing’s 9th version of Wiggo, and we reveal a NEW Twitter feature!
We’d love to hear your feedback and brew suggestions! Share your feedback by calling (919) 502-0280 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
