This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

We’re talking Beer for Wine Drinkers! Many wine drinkers say, “I don’t like beer,”  but we’re confident there’s a beer out there for everyone.  We’ll have Monday Night’s Head Brewer (and former Winemaker) Peter Kiley as well as Sommelier Daniel Pernice to offer some suggestions of beer than wine drinkers might enjoy, the similarities and differences in wine and beer, and the “wineification” of craft beer.

Next week we’re talking Homebrewing! By popular demand we’re having another homebrewing show with special guests Andrew Copper and Michael Röthlisberger.  We’ll chat with them about their favorite styles and get their tips on brewing the perfect batch.

Listen to Beer Guys Radio every Saturday in Atlanta at 1:00 PM Eastern on AM 920 or Sunday at 6:00 AM on Biz 1190.  If you’re in Alabama you can catch the show live at 1:00 PM Central on 92.9 FM / 1450 AM in Huntsville or 94.7 FM / 1490 AM in Decatur  We’re also streaming live on our website, iHeartRadio, or TuneIn.  Can’t catch the live show?  That’s cool, we’ve got you covered.  All past shows are available on-demand on our site or your favorite podcasting app.
