In episode 21 of Tales From the Cask, we’re celebrating the fact that we’ve reached the episode number corresponding to the legal drinking age! We have more beer and food pairings for you as we couple Guinness Red Harvest Stout with Chapel Hill Creamery's Hickory Grove cheese and plum paste, Evil Twin Brewing’s Hipster Ale with Italian roast beef and horseradish aioli, and Evil Twin Brewing’s Spicy Nachos Jalapeño Ale with spicy pimento cheese!
In our news segment, we share some interesting stories about the seasonal creep of pumpkin beer and water challenges on the North Coast that are impacting Russian River Brewing, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Mendocino Brewing Company and Bear Republic Brewing Company. We also have stories about how MillerCoors is improving its water efficiency, why the Tampa Rays manager buying beer for fans, and what beers to match each NFL football team. Believe it or not, there is a Hello Kitty beer available now, and we will definitely discuss what that means!
We answer listener questions about the US three-tier alcohol distribution system, British cask beer, and how breweries and distributors hook up, as well as respond to several listener comments about last week’s unusual episode!
We’d love to hear your feedback and brew suggestions! Call in your feedback by calling (919) 502-0280 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
