With the boom of the craft beer industry there have sprung up little enclaves of enthusiasts who get together to taste and share a plethora of brews, commonly known as a bottle share. We head out to Lunar Brewing in Villa Park, where on the 3rd Monday of every month a small group gets together to share their love of the craft beers.
Co-host Mark Naski participates in this tasting and invited Phil along, provided he bring beers to share – but of course!
We talk with some of the club members and get a feel for what makes craft beer so popular these days. Plus, while at Lunar, we get to taste some of their new brews on draft, including Unidentified Flying Hopject.
We’ve added a bonus tasting on the end of this edition, where we try a very-much hard to find can of Midnight Squeeze, a New England black IPA, and a collaboration from Mikerphone and Werk Force Brewing.
This will be the last podcast for about a month as Mark is heading out of town, and Phil has a date with a new hip! But, we’ll be back in late February with more tastings and brewer interviews, so stay tuned folks!
