A strange show title but these are the names of the two breweries we are sampling in this show. From opposite ends of the country, Mad Swede is out of Boise ID., and Barrel of Monks is down in Boca Raton, FL.
Our panel today comprises the entire staff of the Brit and Yankee pub, Brewmaster Mark, Cellarmaster Lingo, and of course The Brit – the band’s back together! And joining us for the biggest panel we have ever had is tavern owner John Karwoski, and listeners Tim and Tom (fresh from the barleywine tasting in the last show), and to add the subtleties of the female palate, we welcome Lisa G.
