With Tony out on assignment, Jenn and Chip decide to road trip to new brewery Fainting Goat Brewing in Fuquay-Varina NC this week! We talk with owners Tim Reichert & MaryAnn Durborrow about their new brewery, learn how they got started, and try a neat flight of beers: What the Buck Pale Ale, Not So Pale Chocolate Ale, Stiff Leg Tripel, and Horny Honey Pomegranate Witbier!
Another record falls this week as Businesswire reveals that the the U.S. brewery count has reached an all-time high of 4,144! Next The New York Times reports on the close ties between exercise and beer, followed by CBC’s companion pieces on the finding of a beer bottle nearly as old as Canada and the potential that the beer may be seized by the provincial government. The Dieline debuts C10 Architect Beer, then Kickstarter announces the final tally of Pico’s fundraising campaign, and we close with The News and Observer (from Friend of the Show Will Doran!) suggesting gifts for the beer lover in your life.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “what unusual food did you have for your Thanksgiving feast?” and this week we are asking ‘what beer related gift are you giving or want to get this Chrismukkah?”
