Ep 12. If You Don't Have Anything Nice To Say...

In this holiday episode, we cover our Christmas trees. After that, we discuss the Founders CBS drop. Then things turn serious, prepare for the knowledge needle to drop and run through the grooves on your mind. But seriously, there is a rich of history behind the porter and stout styles and Jason lays it down. The history of high gravity, Guinness? Check and check.

We spend a little time on the Avery Brewing sale of a 30% stake to Mahou San Miguel which leads us into a discussion on social media. Which, then leads us into a long and colorful exchange on Untappd. It seems we all start using that app one way and it changes over time. What is the value of reviews anyway? Let's talk about what makes a rating useful. As they say, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." We fall short of proving the Russia is influencing beer reviews.

Jason fills us in on his recent Florida trip in a short after party. If there is any good beer near Myrtle Beach please drop us a line. Lastly, we focus a lot of energy on beer from the Southeast and Northeast, what are we missing? Reach out, let's work out a trade!
