This week a special treat from the west! Western NC, that is! Brewer/Co-Owner Steven Lyerly and Sales Maven Leif Larson join us for a terrific look at Olde Hickory Brewery! We chat about their 20-year history and try incredible beers: Piedmont Pilsner, the astounding Death By Hops, and one of our faves, the barleywine blend Omega Point!
Tons of news awaits you this week! First up is Fortune revealing thatcraft brewers now produce 1 out of every 10 beers sold, followed by The Triangle Business Journal with a look at craft beer trademark troubles,and then the The Washington Post describinghow to drink beer like a local around the world. We then visit Geekwire who offer a craftbeer virtual guide,
Portland Business Journal reportingthatthe eagle has landed with Ninkasi's beer brewed with space yeast, Time with a video where you canwatch a guy open a beer with a sheet of paper, and Craft Beer Raleigh and their 2015 NC March Beer Madness. We bring it home with The New York Times’ review of lagersand wind up in Texas with Austin 360 Blog and aSXSW 2015 panel diving into craft beer culture.
