Tap the Craft Episode 126: To Beer and Beyond

There is a buzz around the craft beer world with the news of Boston Beer and Dogfish Head merging. In Episode 126 we discuss the news release and provide some insight on what this might signal for the craft beer industry and these two companies. We also dive into a brief history of both these breweries.  Lots of beer conversation too that helps extend the show to 2 hours for all those enjoying a longer show. So grab a beer and enjoy the show!

We are proud to partner with B Cups, supplier of Outdoor Craft Beer Cups, for partnering up with us and I encourage our listeners to go visit their site at bcups.net or fermentedreality.com and check out the world’s first full line of style-specific plastic beer cups for people on the go. Whether hanging out on the beach or by the pool, or hiking the wilderness, or even enjoying some boating, B Cups are great for any place you can’t use standard glassware.
