Episode 175 - Sales VP Charlie Clement and Late Summer Brews from Foothills, Coronado & Wicked Weed/Creature Comforts!
It took us years, and we finally did it - we got Charlie Clement, our VP of Chain Sales, to join the fun at the little bar! Charlie regales us with tales of olden times, when the horses still pulled the beer carts from town to town, and how things have evolved into the 21st Century craft beer world! Plus, we found a few more taste treats from the summer cellar as the season winds down, including Foothills Hop of the Month Azacca Golden Ale, Coronado Guava Islander IPA, and the Wicked Weed/Creature Comforts Collaboration Juiceless IPA!
Election/beer news is our lede this week via Politico asking can a beer keep Trump and Clinton honest? followed by Paste reporting that Brewdog plans to bottle a 55% beer in a taxidermy squirrel. Next up we have two from Thrillist featuring Britain and Ireland’s greatest contributions to beer and craft beer’s dark secrets, and we close up with The HuffPo unveiling the illusion of choice facing America’s craft beer lovers.
Last week’s #caskquiz was “should we have a hops-themed Halloween costume contest?” and this week we want you to tell us “do you think Oprah and Steadman should FINALLY tie the knot and if so what beer should they serve at the reception?”
We love hearing from you!
