Tales From the Cask Craft Beer Podcast

Time for schooling this week! We head over to NC State University’s Department of Food, Bioprocessing & Nutrition Sciences! Inside we enter the Sheppard Brewing Lab and learn along with master teacher Dr. John Sheppard and grad student Thomas Clawson! We talk about their really cool program and get to sample three great brews: Ma Blonde D’Or Golden Blonde, Brickyard Red, and Graduator Maibock!

The news runs from startups to cool tech! We begin with The Boston Globe revealing that Boston Beer’s side project is finally ready for the national stage, followed by The USA Today’s view on the Gose of craft beer's future, and then more nutritional info from The Daily Meal with 6 reasons beer is good for you.Next up we have Time in Germany with a beer ad that only works when women pass by, The Detroit Free Press analyzing which top beer app is best, First We Feast’s list of 15 breweries to watch in 2015, Los Angeles Magazine’s piece on the South Bay as America’s newest craft beer capital, and we wind up this week with Inside Science on a robot tongue that identifies the correct beer every time.

Last week our #caskquiz was “what’s your summer vacation beer this year?” and this week we want to know “what was your favorite beer in college?”
