You guys all know what tech nerds we are, and you know we use Untappd all the time! So we were able to get Brandon Walker, the VP of Sales from Untappd, to join us at the bar! Brandon talks about the app’s origins, and he relates the exciting new projects they have coming soon! And since Untappd’s headquarters are in Wilmington, NC, Brandon brings us two locals to try: New Anthem Spin It Cream Ale and the Wilmington Brewing/New Anthem Collaboration Secret Lovers Triple IPA!
The Bud Light #corntroversy rolls on and on, beginning in The Chicago Tribune’s humorous timeline of the Big Beer festering corn-fueled controversy! In a follow up to a story from last week, WTKR reports that the Lucky Charms flavored beer has sold out and is now listed for up to $450 on eBay! Next is The USA Today introducing some Mexican craft beers that are coming from south of the border, and then VinePair (thanks Steve!) uncovers scientists who have hacked beer yeast to produce CBD and THC! We close the newsweek with Forbes heading north where an Ontario retailer is introducing a beer with no name!
Last week we asked “what cereal of your youth do you want to have made into beer? Bonus points: what style?” This week we want to know “what is your take on imported craft? Lots of potential? Not local enough? Are you drinking any yet?”
