This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

We’re talking with Torched Hop Brewing! Co-founder Chris Bivins and Brewer Daniel Bluestein joined us in the studio this week to share some of their brews and talk beer.  We chat about their move into the brewing world, how a small concept got big, and a beer with a crazy name but a noble mission.  Chris also joined us for Beer 101 segment where we talk about the differences in IPA and Double IPA.  All this, and MORE, on this week’s episode of Beer Guys Radio.

Next week we’re talking with Printer’s Ale Manufacturing!  We’ll have owner and founder Elliott Hall in the studio with us to talk about one of Georgia’s newest breweries.  Printer’s Ale Mfg. opened recently in Carrollton, filling in another gap on the Georgia brewery map.  We’ll talk about what it took to open the brewery, their outlook on the upcoming law changes, where their name comes from, and we’ll even sample some beers.
