We have been hearing a lot from the San Diego area lately! Chip has returned from a week in the area as well as our very own NC rep Wil Cooper! They both fill us in on the latest from Coronado Island and we get to try some limited brews along with a new canned beer Easy Up Pale Ale! Wil tells us the unique story behind Frog’s Breath IPA and we round out the tasting portion with the Hibiscus IPA.
We kick off the news segment with some Mega Merger Mania as MillerCoors has recently gotten into the game acquiring both Terrapin and Hop Valley Brewing in the same week! We continue our calorie counting coverage with the top ten lists for highest and lowest calorie beers. On the pricing front, we discuss an unfair taxation strategy that was proposed in Canada and ponder if craft beer is becoming too expensive. We’ve also got the must try list for this summer’s most popular beer style-Gose!
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked: “What is your Heady Topper Story? Where were you when you first tried it?”
This week we want to know: “Is craft beer getting too expensive?”
We love hearing from you!
