Long time no update but thank you to everyone once again who has been supportive over these past few months. Its been a bit rough but it's great to be back on the mic talking about craft beer. On this episode we once again sit down with local homebrewer Lee Samways as well as musician and occasional beer drinker Ben Hein. We discuss what its like to volunteer for Central Coast brewing while we pour at their events, how to mix our loves (maybe just mine) of gambling and craft beer, and highlight how our local breweries won big at the Great American Beer Festival. We also review some beers from Offshoot Brewing Company, Woodland Empire Ale Craft, Tired Hands Brewing Company, and one of Lee's Gold Medal winning homebrews. Thanks for listening and Cheers!

This is it everybody! The much hyped and stressed over debut of Craft Beer Chronicles. I am joined by by some of my craft beer companions Leo, Matt, and Teyvon as we prepare for the SLO Craft Beer Festival and discuss our beginnings in craft beer as well as what we look forward to in the future while we enjoy a few good brews. We discuss the origins of our Bible Club; come up with a beer equivalent of F&$K, Marry, Kill; and debate as to how certain other animals would fare in a fight against a silverback gorilla. WARNING: Explicit and very crude content ahead.
