Episode 35.5 – Jacobite’s and Frenchmen

Yeah, we did show 35 again… Can you blame us? We were pretty loaded after ep 34… How could we remember recording it the first time?

Groucho and CHUD take a European tour of beers on this episode. Starting in Scotland, and ending in the land of our nemesis… France! Sounds like a recipe for disaster right? You might be shocked at the results!

TBR Interview – Christian Wicklund of 2 Brothers Brewing

I guess CHUD and I cannot use that name if we ever start brewing!

Christian came to Peoria as part of a tasting event at Sully’s. 2 Brothers is one of the only bottling brewers in Illinois, and they have lots of offerings!

In the interview, you will hear a little about how 2 Brothers listens to the thirsty masses, and how good Italian restaurants go macro! (Fun analogy!)
