Episode 56 - Summertime Cider & Beers featuring Crispin Original, Ommegang Hennepin & Lagunitas NightTime
It’s almost Memorial Day, so we are ready for the long weekend and the onset of summer with excellent cider and beers! We sample Crispin Original Cider, the awesome farmhouse saison Ommegang Hennepin, and the dark and wonderful Lagunitas NightTime Ale.
As we went to press, new items include a story from the Charleston Post & Courier about a bill to entice brewers to move to South Carolina, an editorial from the Cleveland Plain Dealer regarding an Ohio bill to raise the alcohol limit in beers allowed to be sold in that state, an article from London’s Daily Telegraph detailing some surprising health & beauty benefits of beer, NPR’s take on the ongoing debate about what constitutes a craft beer, the New York Times on summer beer mixology, and NBC Sports Hardball on Cigar City’s special beer aged on Louisville Slugger baseball bats.
We share an email from a DC area listener who decided to make a career change and join the beer business, really fun tweets, and responses to last week’s #caskquiz “what’s your favorite barrel-aged beer.” Join us for this week’s caskquiz “what beer brand would you most like to see in your town that isn’t currently available?”
