[podcast] Last week Doug and I attended a beer and cheese pairing at the Clarion. We discussed the pairings and how I could have done a better job in figuring out what order to put the beers and cheeses in.


Sending beer

The Brewer’s Association, after hearing Peyton Manning go on and on about Budweiser, sent a bunch of Colorado beers his way. The rumor is that the quarterback wasn’t paid to plug Budweiser. I’m not 100 percent sure that’s the case. I’m not calling him a liar, but maybe he’s looking for someone else to pay him as a spokesperson.


Gluten Free beer

Doug brought this story up. I feel like gluten free beer has a little bit in common with decaffeinated coffer because of the process. By that I mean that it only will get better if the process improves and the demand does as well.


Fin City local releases make me happy

Fin City Brewing is making a bunch of beers that only will be sold in local restaurants. I spoke with one of the owners who told me its their way of being a very local brewery while also expanding out into multiple states. They’re biding their time, which seems reasonable.
