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.
