Episode 47: Snow Day

Hello and welcome to the 47th episode of the Blind Tiger Podcast recorded on January 26th, 2015. This episode Mike, Jesse, and myself braved the little winter storm that couldn’t, trudging through a disappointing dusting of snow to enjoy a few beers from Cleveland, Ohio.

The weather was indeed not frightful but then again neither were the beers.  We discuss the news that AB InBev bought Elysian (an embarrassing fact given their recent anti-craft beer advert) and what the means for the ever-growing portfolio of craft beer that AB InBev now owns.  Can they just buy the competition?

Beers From Around the World

We recently had our friend of the show Jake Runyan bring us some awesome new brews from Cleveland, Ohio where he lives, works, and drinks.  We were, of course, touched by the gesture and the great selection of stuff that he brought along.  As a result we figured we could help but sample them on the show, give our thoughts on the beer, and thank him for helping out.
