Continuing our intermittent liquid tour of the nation, the Buckeye State is the focus of this one with five beers from five Ohio breweries. Craig regales us with tales of his recent travels through Ohio, and he nailed the lineup here with five damn tasty brews. We also share a chat Craig had with Black Cloister Brewing founder (and Lutheran pastor) Tom Schaeffer to learn more about the divine inspirations that led to the opening of his rising Toledo brewery. Also, there’s an odd dual game of trivia, a plea for malt in IPAs, Craig’s two tongues, and Ryan’s conflicted barleywine feelings. We’re monking our asses off over here!
Yellow Springs Brewery – Captain Stardust (Saison)
Hoof Hearted Brewing – Hot Probz (Double dry-hopped pale ale)
Rhinegeist Brewery – Penguin (Blonde stout)
The Brew Kettle – White Rajah (IPA)
