Tap the Craft Episode 138: The History of Beer, Pt1

Episode 138 is a special show, Denny brings his long time friend and former 40cast co-host Mr Matthew Helmer.  We learn about his craft beer journey and home brewing experience. We also teach you about some beer history, going back to 5000BC and ending at 1600AD, as well as answer a listener question concerning an ancient Russian beer style. Plus a lot of random beer conversation. 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.
