On this episode, we gather a few friends of the podcast to talk about several topics and sample some limited releases that you may have or should be able to still get.
Kevin Herbst from Midwest Brewers Fest is here to talk about the next MBWF 2016 festival scheduled for October 8, and Ken McMullen from Hopvine Brewing talks about the cask test at MBWF, and his steps into distribution for Hopvine’s brews. John Bitterman rounds out the guest list, and not only brings 3 of the limited release brews, but also tells us about his brush with beer writer and vintage beer recipe guru, Ron Pattinson. The Landlord had to rustle up another mic for this one and it wasn’t performing as planned, so apologies for him sounding like he is in a bathroom!
