Ep 6: A Wicked Weed Indeed & We’re All Sour About It

You know Jason has stories about bottle sharing events including one of the biggest whale-feats ever. We briefly cover the great things coming out of Tennessee these days. We also speak completely out of our element about mixed fermentation process so watch this and get it right:

We love that video so much, probably too much.

Wayne recaps his trip to Seattle and declares the best beer he enjoyed during that visit. You might be surprised who poured the best pint! Jason declares and expands on his love of Chucks Hop Shop bottle shop in Seattle. Anyway, LOVE that Ballard community.

We get a little deep on collaborations on the micro level.

The obligatory Wicked Weed waxing happened. You know we love to keep our eye on the ball of big craft and InBev is certainly pushing our buttons. But who does it really effect the most? We try to cover this big topic and bare our souls but probably only flung poo. A great place to catch more news on this is BeerStreetJournal.com. 

Fallout from the implosion of the Wicked Weed Invitational event has manifested in another event. It’s called The Funk Collective. Jason will be there, learn more here.

That’s it, we’re going Hyper-Local brewing. The betrayal is real. What comes out of all of this? We ham-fist the idea that craft beer needs to maintain the gap in product quality between themselves and the macro owned brands. Down with mediocre beer!

Jason’s big announcement: going to Jester King. Add The Funk Collective visit and we’ll have a couple amazing beer travels to discuss in the next episode.

This afterparty was a little off center. Maybe it was the beer talking? Still, not sure we should be rapping for any reason.
