Ballast Point is all the rage nationally, and we have the lady who is stoking the flames here in NC! It’s Jenny Meyer joining us this week, and she gives us the latest from San Diego and brings along some fine brews: Big Eye IPA, Wahoo Wheat with Thai Chili, Lime & Ginger, and the now year-round Grapefruit Sculpin IPA!
Chip is back at the news desk after an amazing job by Tony & Jenn last week! We begin with our own reporting on a study on the economic impact of the beer industry in America from the NBWA & The Beer Institute, followed by Fortune detailing how massive the American beer industry has become, and then Forbes on the dire beer situation in Venezuela. Next up is CNBC’s piece on how Anchor Brewing changed the beer business, Mashable’s literal portrait of an Australian surfer painted with pale ale beer, Popular Science revealing that some cars in New Zealand are running on beer-flavored gasoline, and we end up with an amazing story from The U.S. News & World Report on the secret to long life.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “when you go to order a beer at a bar do you look for a style or a specific brewery?” while this week we want to know “what spicy beer have you had that set your world on fire?”
We love hearing from you!
