Tap the Craft Episode 143: History of Belgian Witbier

In Episode 143 we revisit a topic briefly discussed during our history of beer segments…the Belgian Witbier. We discuss the history of the style and how it was resurrected, as well as a brief explanation of the tasting style notes. We also have a ton of listener feedback and voicemails…and an article about a major miscalculation of ABV.  Plus a lot of random beer conversation. So grab a beer and enjoy the show! Don’t forget to enter the final BCUPs contest by leaving a voicemail at 208-536-3359. 

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.
