Two worlds collide on this week’s show - tech and beer! We have Bill Kaluza, Mason Koffman & Megan Pullam from beer software company Intervolve. They talk about how they work with beer distributors and brewers, and they help us try some de-licious fall faves: Sierra NevadaBoomerang IPA, FoothillsNovember IPA Of the Month - “NovAmber”, and LagunitasLittle Sumpin’ Wild.
The big keep getting bigger in the news this week! We start there with Crain’s Chicago Business on Chicago's Reyes Beverage becoming the top beer distributor in U.S., then head east to The New York Daily News with a look at a brewer recreating an old Belgian beer found in a shipwreck, and join Fast Company revealing the latestGame of Thrones brew called Three-Eyed Raven. After that, we have stories from Thrillist on 9 small cities that deserve national attention for their beers, The New York Post showing us where to buy beer hoodies, and Phys.Org revealing people who are improving the taste of alcohol-free beer with aromas from regular beer.
For the #caskquiz from last week we wanted to know “what beer celebrity would you most like to have a beer with?” This week’s is a companion piece to the recent election: “what politician would you like to grab a beer with?”
