Can you believe it’s been almost a year since we visited Tim Reichert at Fainting Goat Brewing? Neither can we! They just celebrated their one-year anniversary so we head down to join the fun! Tim gives us the latest news from Fuquay-Varina, and we share a terrific sampler of Butthead Brown Ale, Dark Hoof Dunkelweizen, Brewquay Double IPA, and Red Ale with Serrano Habanero and Cacao Nibs!
To get into the festive Thanksgiving spirit, we zoom in on good beer news! First up is The Motley Fool revealing that Wendy's is jumping on the latest trend: beer burgers, followed by Lonely Planet (via our friend Kristen Baughman!) showing us an Australian man who travelled from Scotland to India swapping beer for accommodation and lifts, and then Phys.Org’s discovers that a barley dormancy mutation suggests beer motivated early farmers. Next up ViralSlot (via former producer Darrell!) revaels that you can rent an inflatable Irish pub for your next backyard party, and we finish up with The Sacramento Bee demonstrating Craft Beer: The Board Game!
Last week we wanted to know “what beers are you pairing with your Thanksgiving meal this year?” and for this week’s #caskquiz we are asking “what’s your go-to burger beer?”
We love hearing from you!
