We have such a special treat this week - Wicked Weed is in the house, and Justin Crouch is tasting with us! Justin tells us about the brewery’s origins, how he got into the beer business, and brings along some super beers for us to sample: El Paraiso Imperial Coffee Stout, Pernicious IPA, Freak of Nature Double IPA and La Bonte with Plum.
Next up is the news! Fortune starts us off telling us how big beer is trying to take over San Diego, followed by The Washington Post’s opinion that the ‘Mad Men’ era of drinking is upon us and then The Wall Street Journal reports on expats stirring up the Vietnamese beer scene. Next The Daily Beast shows us that when a specialty craft beer is released, beer geeks can go crazy, and Los Angeles Magazine reveals Jameson whiskey wants to be craft beer.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “what’s your favorite animal-named beer?” while this week we want to know “what distillery would you like to see use beer barrels?”
We love hearing from you!
