Tales From the Cask Craft Beer Podcast

There’s no better way to celebrate birthday week for both of us than to have a great time with our old buddy and music man Scott Mizerak from Foothills Brewing! Scott talks about all the great things happening in Winston-Salem - a hotel next to the brewpub - w00t! And he has amazing brews for us: Hoppyum (now in cans!), Equus IPA (also now in cans!), and Barrel-Aged Sexual Chocolate with Coffee!

In honor of birthday week, we have only good news for you, beginning in The NY Post where we learn that more than 70% of beer drinkers have taken time to go on a ‘beercation’! Next up local fave WRAL reports that the changing climate is potentially affecting the craft beer industry, while PodiumRunner.com asks Pete if you should you carbo-load on beer? Then it’s ESPN showcasing a ‘beer money' sign that is still chugging along for charity, Fortune showing us craft breweries going hyper-local to source ingredients, and Smithsonian Magazine (thanks Scott!) revealing what’s brewing in the new Smithsonian Beer Collections. We wind up the week with The Drinks Business (thanks Steve!) picturing two beer cans from the 1930s selling for £2,270!

This week’s #caskquiz asks “have you had a beer with local ingredients lately What was it? Which ingredients?
