Rob Mullin from Yuengling is the guest on this week’s episode. Yuengling just released it’s first new beer in 17 years, Yuengling Golden Pilsner, and Rob brought some for us to sample along with a few of their great legacy beers, Black & Tan and Lord Chesterfield Ale. Yuengling’s story is one of the best in all of the beer industry and is one of the most sought-after brands by both Craft Beer aficionados and everyday beer drinkers.
On Episode 17 we look back at the first half of 2018 while drinking some of the beers on the Zymurgy Magazine Best Beers in America list including Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale, Founders KBS, Founders CBS, and Founders Breakfast Stout. Vic is salty about the list and he tells us why he hates top ten lists and how it is all just a matter of opinion.
We also talk about the new breweries that have opened in South Jersey and how many that South Jersey can support. John tells us why there are too many festivals, we revisit the formation of a new Brewer’s guild and the pending ABC legislation rumors that are running rampant in the industry.
John Howard-Fusco of Eating in South Jersey, Rafael Pena-Medina, and Richard Rabic our producer and Co-host of the great “Fear of A Craft Beer Planet” Podcast also sit in with John, Rob, and Vic.
John Howard-Fusco of the great blog “Eating In South Jersey“, and author of “A Culinary History of Cape May: Salt Oysters, Beach Plums, & Cabernet Franc” (available on Amazon) joined us for this week’s podcast. John has seen the rise of the Craft Beer movement in New Jersey and Philadelphia and how restaurants in the region have embraced (or not) it. We talk great beer bars in South Jersey, what does a foodie order when he goes out, and how to tell a chef that you don’t like something. We also talk about his great book on the culinary history of Cape May, and how it has become a food and beer destination.
