Great first episode! I'm already looking forward to the IPA reviews - I love the Pacific NW styles, and am confused by how popular the malty (British?) styles are in Ontario.
Great way to hear about new beers
I've really been enjoying this podcast! The premise is neat, the hosts are fun to listen to, and I've learned some new stuff about craft beer. It is good for newbies and beer veterans alike, I can't wait to hear what beer they try next.
Great new podcast about craft beer.
