Tap the Craft Episode 99: Discover German Altbier

In episode 99 we take a look at a lesser known German beer style called Altbier. Why talk about this style? Because Denny found a really good one and wants to talk about the style and encourage our listeners to check out the style for themselves.  We also discuss an article listing the top 50 new breweries to open in the last year and find out which two of Denny’s favorites made the list. And let us know if any of the breweries on the list are your favorites too! So grab a beer and enjoy the show!

We are proud to partner with HOPCLOTH apparel and invite you to visit their site at https://www.hopcloth.com to find great craft beer themed clothing that remind people “Craft beer is not alcoholism…it’s a hobby!”  And let them know we sent you by using the code “tapthecraft” at checkout to get free shipping!
