BEER WITH EVERYTHING PODCAST: Rare Barrel Ensorcelled, Two Roads Worker’s Stomp, and Wicked Weed Freak of Nature
Derek Warren’s popular How to Pair Beer with Everything column on nepascene.com is now a podcast! Joined by NEPA Scene founder and editor Rich Howells and beer enthusiast George Zvirblis, they’ll try a different brew each week and examine it through all the senses, diving into personal experiences and opinions, pop culture, news, or whatever comes to mind. While Derek is an experienced beer reviewer and aficionado (and co-host of the Beer Geeks Radio Hour on WILK 103.1 FM) and George is a beer collector who travels to breweries nationwide, Rich is more of a casual craft beer drinker (and co-host of the NEPA Scene Podcast), so they’ll both offer their own uncensored perspectives and ask guests to share their own.
With George out this week, replaced by a talking plastic skull Halloween decoration (as seen above), Matt Dapkins of Massive Beer Reviews joins us as we sample Ensorcelled by The Rare Barrel, Worker’s Stomp Barrel-Aged Saison by Two Roads Brewing Company, and Freak of Nature Double IPA by Wicked Weed Brewing. We discuss Lagunitas Brewing selling 50 percent of its company to Heineken and Dogfish Head Brewery’s very kind and classy cease and desist letter to Pizza Boy Brewing Company that Pizza Boy posted online and attempted to make a big deal out of, touching on craft beer fans and their online discussions of both situations. We also get into Disney taking over Marvel and Lucasfilm, the “Star Wars” franchise, public relations nightmares, “Weekend at Bernie’s,” Carvel ice cream cakes, The Onion, Naked News, and more!
