In this week’s episode, Pat is joined by friends of the podcast, Bill Steinbacher and the infamous Tom M. We talk a little bit about some charity stuff and a whole bunch about yeast. As a bonus, we double up on One for the Road and make fun of each other a ton.

For this week’s episode, we were onsite at the Blind Rhino in Norwalk, CT for our first ever live episode as we covered the 2018 Connecticut Blind Beer Awards, hosted by our good friend Ken Tuccio. Max Finnance, Nicki Vinci and Erik Ofgang join Pat as the panel of expert judges for the event. Follow along for their thoughts on the beers, good discussions, and random guests leading up to the awards ceremony as the winners are crowned. If you missed out on the event yourself, you won’t want to miss this episode.

We are back after an unexpected week off!  We talk about some recent news from the Brewer’s Association, Pat reviews the Picobrew Pico C and Joe has a great One for the Road.

In this episode, we mix up the format and are joined in studio by Ken Tuccio as a guest host.   We talk about beers we are drinking, events we’ve attended, some current things in the news and tell a whole bunch of random stories along the way.  Ken even decided it would be fun to make us drink Natty Ice on the air, so in retaliation we put him on the spot for this week’s One for the Road.
