Episode 23: Celebrating taste

In this week's episode, Doug and I discuss the new Old Bay flavored beer at 3rd Wave Brewery in Delmar and the implications of a salty beer (awesome). We also get into the yeast genome project profiled in the NYT and the potential for inventing or isolating characteristics (also awesome). Although neither of us knew Jack Joyce, founder of Rogue, Doug talked about his experience at the Newport brewery and I talked about how much I hated that beer 17 years ago. I've since elaborated on my State of the Beer blog, which it would be cool of you to check out.
If you're interested in being the next call-in guest on the show or you'd like to come in and share a beer with us, email me here, or message Tony on +State of the Beer. The show's Facebook page is Beer with Strangers and we're "@beerwstrangers" on Twitter.
Finally, and please, consider subscribing on iTunes 'cause that way Apple will remind you to listen (if you click the link, your iTunes window will open. Don't be afraid).
If you are or know anyone who is interested in taking a brewing basics class (the class is free and lots of fun) have them reserve a space here. Taking a class is the best way to figure out whether homebrewing is for you. Many people take several before trying on their own at home.
