Audio Extra - 20th Annual Great Taste of the Midwest

Join Rick as he wanders around the 20th Annual Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison, Wisconsin. This is an annual charitable event held by the Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild on the 2nd Saturday of August. The event features over 100 breweries and over 450 different beers. So many beers, so little time.

No intros, exits or fluff. This is fairly raw audio although I tried to keep the levels fairly consistent. Some of the people are experts, for example the main brewer from Schlafly - Stephen Hale, to your generic uninformed public who's contribution to the podcast was «Woo Hoo!» I also found some of the organizers to get their thoughts on the event. Warning: this show contains some made up facts!

Show 42 - Capital Beer Show

Capital Brewery LogoWe have great beers from Capital Brewery, great music from a legend of blues and rock, Willie Dixon. You may not be familiar with him, but you know his work. We also talk with Kirby Nelson, brewmaster from Capital Brewery, and get the inside dope on making beer, growing the brewery, and keeping it an art and not just a job. Plus international shoutouts, drinking and driving (or driving us to drink) and more. A musical, tasty show - enjoy!
