Tales From the Cask Craft Beer Podcast

It’s been a record time the past few years with our buddies Justin Crouch and Zac Smith from Wicked Weed, and now there’s a Guinness World Record to boot! Yes, a 177 tap takeover happened at a huge bar in downtown Raleigh last weekend! The boys helped us get ready with a pretaste of the astounding Crazy? Genius! Barrel-Aged American Sour Ale with Raspberries and Mangoes!

The news begins a bit downbeat this week via The Denver Post which reports that Colorado’s oldest craft brewery is downsizing, ending distribution and laying off 21 employees. Next we head Outsideonline to learn that dirtbags were the original craft beer influencers, and then Forbes reveals that the Craft Beer Marketing Awards has announced their first Award Series. Then we hit the track with Runner’s World as they ask can drinking beer wreck your weight-loss progress from your workouts? We close up with the Iowa City Press-Citizen showing us that Carson King has handed $3 million to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital!

This week we are carrying over last week’s question which is a spinoff of the “3 Questions”, namely “what’s the first brewery you remember visiting?”
