This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

We’re on the road at the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting talking with Georgia’s upcoming breweries!  We say it all the time, but this show is jam-packed with awesomeness. We talk with former Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele and his business partners Carey Falcone and Bob Powers about their brewpub coming to Atlanta’s Beltline.  Next, Owen Ogletree talks with us about ACAT and cask ales as well as some other events he’s got coming up.  Matt and Lauren Curling tell us about the plans for their brewery, Variant Brewing, coming to Roswell and Ryan Skinner and Todd Dimatteo share some info on Good Word Brewing, coming to Duluth.  Podcast Extra!  We ran out of time to include this on the radio show but check out the podcast for an extended cut and interviews with UK beer writer and beer judge Des de Moor and Chicago beer writer and cask ale assessor Steve Hamburg who give us their thoughts on cask ales.

Next week we’re talking cider with Mercier Orchards.  Tony Jones and Ian Flom join us in the studio that talk all things cider.  They share the history of cider in America and in North Georgia, info on their farm and all their ciders (more than just apple), what a visit to their farm and tasting room entails, and the differences in brewing beer, wine, and cider.  We also talk with Nancy Palmer of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild about the new Beer Bill, SB85 and Matt Leff joins us to share some info in Nuit Belge.
